Aggressive expansion from 2022 onwards

MAPI Vice President Director Virendra Prakash Sharma said the company was preparing Capex for 2022 for between IDR1.2 trillion and IDR1.3 trillion but had only absorbed 30%, or IDR360 billion to IDR390 billion.

“We are going to spend the Capex as a whole definitely based on the situation. Since there are more brands, there are also food and beverage segments. By the end of the 2022 first semester, it had absorbed 30%,” he said during a public expose on July 28, 2022.

Sharma was optimistic that the company was on the right track to achieve its target this year.

Other than Indonesia, the company aims for the Philippines as the next market. By 2022, the company is targeting to establish over 400 retail stores and by June, it already opened 183 retail stores.
