           behind 2019 levels

      --   Strong balance sheet and funding position 
 

"Most of the businesses of the Group improved in the first half of 2021, compared with the same period in 2020, when the Group experienced significant COVID-19 pandemic-related business restrictions in the second quarter of 2020. Although business conditions have improved, the Group's performance for the remainder of the year remains challenging, given that business performance and consumer confidence will still be impacted by the worsening COVID-19 pandemic situation lately in Indonesia. The Group's balance sheet and funding position remain strong.

Ensuring the health and safety of our employees amid the deepening COVID-19 pandemic continues to be the Group's top priority. The Group's greatest strength is our employees. The efforts that all our employees have taken in responding to the challenges faced have contributed to the Group's resilience during these difficult times."

      --              Serasi Autoraya's net income increased by 138% to Rp81 billion, mainly due to increased used car 
                      sales, improved operating margin and a slight increase in number of vehicles 
                      under contract to 23,000 units. 
 

Information Technology

Net income from the Group's information technology division was 13 % lower at Rp 1 4 billion, primarily due to lower revenue in the office service business of 76.9%-owned Astra Graphia.

Property

Net income from the Group's property division increased by 17 % to Rp 83 billion, mainly due to higher occupancy and lower operational costs at Menara Astra .

Prospects

Most of the businesses of the Group improved in the first half of 2021, compared with the same period in 2020, when the Group experienced significant COVID-19 pandemic-related business restrictions in the second quarter of 2020. Although business conditions have improved, the Group's performance for the remainder of the year remains challenging, given that business performance and consumer confidence will still be impacted by the worsening COVID-19 pandemic situation lately in Indonesia. The Group's balance sheet and funding position remain strong.
