Roadshow in East Java As Part of the 32nd Anniversary of The Indonesian Capital Market Reactivation (1977-2009)

Surabaya, November 24, 2009

Surabaya – To celebrate the 32nd Anniversary of Indonesian Capital Market reactivation, the Indonesian capital market regulator and SROs, which consists of the Indonesian Capital Market and Financial Institutions Supervisory Agency (Bapepam-LK), the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), the Indonesian Clearing and Guarantee Corporation (KPEI), and the Indonesian Central Securities Depository (KSEI), organize roadshows to widely introduce capital market to the society and at the same time perform corporate social responsibility (CSR). One of the destinations of these roadshows is East Java.

As a form of their concern for the development in education, the series of activities in East Java will be opened with Campus to Campus at the Ciputra University Surabaya. This activity aims to introduce and increase the academics’ knowledge on Capital Market.

The next agenda of the event is the inauguration of Capital Market Information Center (PIPM) in Surabaya as the representative of IDX in the city. PIPM Surabaya, which was once known as the Information and Education Center, has move to its new residence in Jl. Basuki Rahmat No. 46 Surabaya 60261. The new office will be symbolically inaugurated by the Governor of East Java, Dr. H. Soekarwo, accompanied by the Head of Accounting Standards and Disclosure Bureau of Bapepam-LK, Mr. Anis Baridwan and the President Director of Indonesia Stock Exchange, Mr. Ito Warsito.

IDX is optimist that the new PIPM in Surabaya can promote the Capital Market as an investment alternative and first choice for funding to the locals, and at the same time will bring the IDX closer to the existing and prospective market participants in the city. PIPM Surabaya will assist to gather and attract local companies to turn to IDX as a source of funding for the companies’ development in the region.

Besides in Surabaya, IDX has also opened PIPMs in several other cities such as Riau, Balikpapan, Manado, Makassar, Pekalongan, Padang, Jember, Pontianak, Yogyakarta, Cirebon, and Lampung.

Another activity going to be held on this commemoration of the Anniversary of Indonesia Capital Market Reactivation is a Prospective Investor Forum entitled Smart Investing in Capital Market. The purpose of this forum is to introduce Capital Market as an investment alternative for the people in Surabaya and its surrounding areas. The forum will present competent speakers, which will include the President Director of IDX, Mr. Ito Warsito; Director of IDX, Ms. Friderica Widyasari Dewi; and the President Director of KSEI, Mr. Ananta Wiyogo. This forum will also be attended by the Mayor of Surabaya, Mr. Drs. Bambang Dwi Hartono, M.Pd., and will be held at the Ballroom of Sheraton Hotel Surabaya on November 24, 2009.

As a form of concern and solidarity, Bapepam-LK, IDX, KPEI and KSEI has also rebuilt a primary school SDN Batokan V Kasiman in Bojonegoro, which was heavily ruined by Bengawan Solo flood a few years ago. The rebuilding of this school is expected to give positive impacts on other efforts made for public facilities development after the flood, especially for the learning facilities in the region. Most CSR programs perform by the capital market communities are focused on the education world. This is based on the belief that education is the most important factor for the development of the younger generation as the next leaders of the nation. Therefore, on November 25, 2009, as part of the activities in the roadshow, there will be a signing of a commemorative plague on the inauguration of the newly built primary school SDN Batokan V Kasiman Bojonegoro by the Regent of Bojonegoro, Mr. Drs. H. Suyoto, MSi., and the handing over of the school by the President Director of IDX, Mr. Ito Warsito, to the Principal of the school, Mrs. Sarmini, S.Pd., which will also be witnessed by the Regent of Bojonegoro. On the occasion, some students of SDN Batokan V Kasiman with high achievements and who are coming from less fortunate families will be granted scholarships.

The roadshow in East Java hopefully can attract more Indonesian investors, which at the end will help to develop the capital market in Indonesia.
