With this addition, the company's retail outlets have the potential to increase to 3,237 outlets, where this number exceeds the total outlets in pre-pandemic FY19 with 2,615 outlets.

IHSG Updates
JCI strengthened by +0.78% to 7,163.26 on Tuesday (23/08), followed by net foreign buy which reached IDR500.27 billion. Almost all sectors strengthened and supported the index, led by the energy sector (+3.30%) followed by the raw materials sector (+1.66%). On the other hand, the sector that experienced weakness was the transportation sector (-0.37%). The index outperformed compared to the weakening Asian markets and Wall Street. Investors positively welcomed the increase in the BI7DRR +25 bps benchmark interest rate to 3.75%, after being maintained for 18 months. These efforts were made in line with preemptive steps to curb future inflation and maintain spread while FFR remains attractive. On the other hand, the Rupiah exchange rate closed higher at IDR14,838/USD. We estimate that JCI will move in the price range of 7,130-7,200 pending the release of M2 Money Supply YoY Jul. Today's recommendation: ARTO, ASSA, BBYB, MYOR.
