In the first 9 months of 2018, Adaro’s net income reached US $ 312.71 million. That value decreased 16.04% year on year (yoy) from the previous US $ 372.45 million.
This was due to the increase in cost of revenue rising to US $ 1.78 billion from US $ 1.58 billion. Gross profit was corrected towards US $ 878.55 million from the position as of September 2018 of US $ 859.43 million.
Adaro Energy’s President Director, Garibaldi Thohir, said that the increase in basic expenses was due to an increase in mining costs along with the addition of overburden stripping volume. In addition, the price of oil fuel is heating up, and payment of royalties to the government increases due to the increase in average selling prices.
