NCKL President Director Roy A. Arfandy said: “We appreciate and thank investors for their high enthusiasm towards the NCKL IPO. The oversubscription is a clear indication of the trust that investors have placed in the bright prospects of the nickel processing industry that is being managed by our company.”
Over 50% of the funds raised from the IPO will be used for the needs of its subsidiaries and associated entities. The money will be channelled through capital and loans.
Of the remaining amount, 50% will be used to pay off debt and the balance 10% will be allocated for capital expenditures and working capital, Roy noted.
NCKL and its subsidiaries operate two laterite nickel mining projects located on Obi Island in North Maluku Province.
The two projects cover about 5,524 hectares of area. Operated by the company, the first project is spread in an area of 4,247 hectares in Kawasi.

Its total annual production capacity is 55,000 metal tons per year. It also has plans to start nickel sulfate production this month.
