Fund Managers’ Monthly Report

May 2014

  • Indonesian stock market gains in May were pared by uncertainty after the presidential election front-runner, Joko Widodo, who generally is seen as being more business–friendly, lost the support of Golkar, the second-largest party, to his main rival Prabowo Subianto.
  • The central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 7.5% for the seventh consecutive month, as inflation remained steady. However, it lowered its growth forecast as exports weakened on softer commodity prices and falling mineral ore shipments. This stems from the recent export ban on certain raw minerals in a bid to encourage more processing locally. On a more positive note, several nickel processing plants are expected to be completed this year. Additionally, manufacturing activity continued to expand.
  • The government-backed infrastructure finance company, PT Indonesia, plans to increase its funding for roads, power plants and airports by 60% this year to US$347 million.
  • In Fund-related news, Telkom Indonesia will acquire a 25% stake in handset distributor Tiphone Mobile for about US$130 million, which will help solidify its distribution network for prepaid plans, in addition to forging greater smartphone bundling initiatives in a bid to boost data demand. Perusahan Gas Negara will pay US$175 million for a 36% stake in Swift Energy’s shale gas operations in Texas. The gas distributor is fortifying its portfolio in a move to satisfy the increasing domestic demand. Miner Vale Indonesia is benefiting from the spike in nickel prices, as it already has smelters in place to export semi-processed product. Therefore, we have raised our earnings outlook for the firm.
  • There were no major changes to the Fund in May.

Section 16 Filings


Pursuant to valuation policies adopted by the Board of Directors of the Fund, the Fund values foreign equity securities that primarily trade in certain markets that close ahead of the Fund’s daily 4:00 pm Eastern net asset value (“NAV”) calculation time at their fair values using prices provided by third-party independent pricing services. The fair value of each such security generally is calculated by applying a valuation factor provided by the independent pricing service to the last sales price for that security, or, if, the pricing service is unable to provide a fair value for a security, at the price at the close of the exchange on which it is principally traded, subject to adjustment by the Fund’s Pricing Committee. These daily fair valuations seek to reflect information available after the local market close that may affect the value of the foreign equity securities held by the Fund. As a result, this official NAV calculation reflects adjustments that may cause it to vary from a calculation based solely on closing prices. In contrast, the “Unadjusted NAV” of the Fund (shown above) is for informational purposes only and is computed using the closing prices on the relevant exchange. It does not reflect any daily fair valuation adjustments of the Fund’s foreign securities. The Unadjusted NAV does not represent the official NAV of the Fund, nor is the Unadjusted NAV used for Fund accounting or performance purposes. Investors should not rely upon the Unadjusted NAV when making their investment decisions.
