First Quarter Achievements


In contrast to the first quarter of 2020, when Indonesia is still in the early phase of the pandemic, the first quarter of 2021 is considered a challenging period for the aviation industry. The entry restriction for foreigners and travel restriction still suppress Company's overall performance. However, the Company managed to reduce operating expenses by more than half or equal to 51.5% year on year (YoY), from MUSD 139.7 in 1Q 2020 to MUSD 67.7 in 1Q 2021. Specifically, the most significant decreases shown by the subcontracts and material expenses, which helps to reduce net loss to more than 72.1% compared to the same period last year. Furthermore, at the end of the first quarter of 2021, GMFI also managed to record positive earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortization (EBITDA) worth MUSD 2.6, reversing from negative EBITDA of MUSD -28.2 recorded in the same quarter of the previous year. "This improvement shows the gradual recovery of the Company's performance through the series of recovery strategies implemented since 2020," concluded Rian.
