Where applicable, some items have been reclassified according to PEFINDO’s definitions. PEFINDO assigns “idBBB+” rating to PT MNC Pictures and “idA+(sy)(cg)” rating to its proposed Medium Term Notes Syariah Ijarah I Year 2018 PEFINDO has assigned its “idBBB+” rating to PT MNC Pictures (MNCP). PEFINDO has also assigned its “idA+(sy)(cg)” rating to MNCP’s proposed Medium Term Notes (MTN) Syariah Ijarah I Year 2018 of a maximum of IDR500 billion due in 370 days, which will be fully guaranteed by PT Global Mediacom Tbk (BMTR, idA+/Stable), the holding company of the Media Nusantara Citra (MNC) group for media business. BMTR’s rating reflects its major stakes in Indonesia’s leading and largest media companies, the wide range of media services such as television, pay TV, content, online media, and broadband internet provided by its subsidiaries, and its good operating profitability. However, BMTR’s rating is constrained by its indirect access to operating cash flow, exposure to foreign currency volatility through its subsidiaries’ US dollar-denominated debts, and intense competition in the media industry. Of the MTN proceeds, IDR300 billion will be used to finance MNCP’s working capital needs and IDR200 billion will be used to finance the purchase of programs for the development of its content library. The outlook for the corporate rating is “stable”. An obligor rated idBBB has an adequate capacity to meet its long-term financial commitments relative to that of other Indonesian obligors. However, adverse economic conditions or changing circumstances are more likely to lead to a weakened capacity of the obligor to meet its financial commitments. A debt security rated idA indicates that the obligor’s capacity to meet its long-term financial commitments on the debt security, relative to other Indonesian obligors, is strong. However, the debt security is somewhat more susceptible to the adverse effects of changes in circumstances and economic conditions than higher-rated debt. The plus (+) sign indicates that the rating is relatively strong within the respective rating category. The suffix (sy) indicates that the rating mandates compliance with Islamic principles. The suffix (cg) indicates that the rating incorporates security in the form of a corporate guarantee. The corporate rating reflects MNCP’s captive market as it produces television drama series for the group, operational benefits from group synergy, and strong commitment from its shareholders. However, the corporate rating is constrained by its high working capital needs resulting in higher financial leverage, moderate cash flow protection measures, and intense competition and risks related to cyclical and unpredictable audience reception. The corporate rating could be raised if MNCP strengthens its business profile by exceeding its revenue and profitability targets on a sustained basis and diversifying its revenue through the sale of its content including movies and animation, while improving its capital structure and cash flow protection measures. The corporate rating could be lowered if it incurs substantially larger debt than projected, resulting in a weaker financial profile, particularly if its debt to EBITDA ratio exceeds 3.5x on a sustained basis and/or if we view there is less synergy between the Company and the group. The MTN rating could be lowered if the full guarantee for its principal and coupon payment is not in place, or if the rating of BMTR as the MTN guarantor is downgraded. MNCP is a production house that produces content for television in the form of drama series, film television (FTV), and animation as well as movies. It is a part of the MNC Group, the largest media group in Indonesia. As of September 30, 2017, its shareholders were PT MNC Studios International (99.99%) and PT Media Nusantara Citra Tbk (MNCN, 0.01%). http://www.pefindo.com January 2018
