I Gede Nyoman Yetna Setya, IDX’ director, revealed the regulator had required the startup to have a Net Tangible Assets (NTA) in a certain size to become an issuer. This regulation was often complained because not all companies had the tangible assets such as technology companies.

Now, IDX does not require the prospective issuers to meet the NTA requirements but must have revenues. If it could not penetrate the requirements regarding revenue, the bourse will consider the market capitalization of the company.

Previously, information and communications technology minister Rudiantara hoped Indonesian Financial Services Authority (FSA) and IDX will issue regulations for startup companies holding or unicorn to be able conduct an IPO in the local stock exchange.

Therefore, he hoped all the ecosystems associated with the capital market, whether on the part of the community or investors, fund managers, and stakeholders in the Indonesian capital market should share the same approaches.

He said that the major obstacle for unicorns to conduct an IPO is stock price valuation. Thus the government and the authority will carry out an assessment of unicorn companies.

“Sooner or later, the initial investors in these unicorns would have to find ways to exit from these unicorns (to realize gains),” he added.
