Bisnis.com, JAKARTA - Nickel mining company under Harita Group, PT Trimegah Bangun Persada Tbk. (NCKL), will distribute a cash dividend amounting to 30 percent of its total net profit in 2022 or around Rp 1.4 trillion.

"The company will continue to invest in and develop production facilities that can increase the volume and added value of the products.

During the AGM, NCKL also obtained shareholder's approval for the Annual Report, Audited Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company and its Subsidiaries, as well as the Report on the Supervisory Duties of the Board of Commissioners during the 2022 fiscal year.
In addition to the distribution of dividends amounting to Rp1.4 trillion, the shareholders also approved the utilization of NCKL's earnings for the 2022 fiscal year as a reserve fund of 0.17 percent or Rp8 billion, interim dividends, and the remaining amount recorded as retained earnings to support the company's operational activities and development.

The realized funds amount to Rp5.8 trillion, while the funds disbursed for the implementation of the Public Offering amount to Rp258 billion.
Part of the funds has been used according to the planned utilization stated in the prospectus, which includes debt repayment, loans, capital expenditure, and equity contributions to associate entities.
Another agenda in this Annual General Meeting of Shareholders is granting authority to the Board of Commissioners to appoint a Registered Public Accounting Firm to audit the Company's Financial Statements for the fiscal year ending on December 31, 2023, as well as determining the salaries and/or honorariums of the members of the Board of Commissioners and the members of the Board of Directors of the Company.
