In last April, JSMR has offered a Collective Investment Fund Contract worth Rp1 trillion. According to Finance Director Donny Arsal the company reviewed a number of options to raise funds through the capital market in this year.

The developer review the issuance of two new debt instruments like step-up coupon bonds and zero-coupon bonds with a target fund of up to Rp2 trillion.

According to Arsal, bond step-up coupons are able to provide companies the flexibility to determine their bond interest rates based on the company’s cash flow. For example, interest bonds paid at the beginning of the year tend to be low due to adjusting cash flow.

“However, at the end of the period the interest is likely to be greater than the market average,” he added.
