FITCH RATINGS: CASH FLOW GENERATION TO SLOW DOWN FOR INDONESIAN COAL MINERS
FITCH RATINGSFitch Ratings' negative outlook on the Indonesian coal-mining sector reflects our view of weaker cash flow generation on account of declining coal prices. Fitch has revised down its mid-cycle coal-price assumptions, and expects USD80 and USD73 for Qinghuangdao 5,500kcal/kg and Australia Newcastle 6,000kcal/kg thermal coal, respectively, in 2020 (2019E: USD86 and USD77). We expect capex intensity to remain low for the sector; however, acquisitions might pick up in 2020, leading to higher leverage. Profitability is also likely to remain low, in light of weaker coal prices.
 
Fitch's stable rating outlook reflects the outlook for the majority of our rated entities: PT ABM Investama Tbk (B+) and Geo Energy Resources Limited (B-) are on Negative Outlook, reflecting the entity-specific weaknesses which could be stretched further in the weaker-coal-price scenario.
 
According to Fitch Ratings, the impact of lower profitability on credit metrics would be partially offset by volume ramp-up by some entities, such as PT Golden Energy Mines Tbk (B+/Stable) and PT Bayan Resources Tbk (BB-/Stable), where both have adequate reserve lives similar to other bigger players such as PT Adaro Energy (BBB-/Stable) and PT Indika Energy Tbk (BB-/Stable). We expect declining reserves to remain an issue for Geo Energy, which might also trigger a put option of its bonds in the absence of any acquisition. ABM's reserve quality is also deteriorating as reserves from its key mine are likely to fully deplete in the next two to three years.
 
Fitch Ratings further noted that, regulatory risks remain a potential disrupting factor in Indonesia, but Fitch considers any major changes to regulation as an event risk. We believe the two rated coal-miners - Adaro and Indika - which have their Coal Contracts of Work (CCoW) expiring in 2022 and 2023, respectively, will be able to satisfy the conversion guidelines.
