Tricor Group Signs a Sale and Purchase Agreement to Acquire PT ASA Indonesia Expanding its Portfolio in Payroll, Accounting and Tax with a Stronger Indonesia Presence

HONG KONG, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tricor Group (Tricor), Asia's leading business expansion specialist, has signed a sale and purchase agreement to acquire PT ASA Indonesia. Tricor is the largest provider of corporate services in APAC, serving 50,000+ client entities across its 21-market footprint with a concentrated focus in ASEAN in recent years. A positive move for PT ASA Indonesia, this acquisition will provide local and cross-border clients access to Tricor's global best practices and innovative solutions and service offerings.

Founded in 2004, PT ASA Indonesia is a leading corporate services provider offering comprehensive services in payroll, tax, accounting and corporate secretarial functions. The firm primarily assists international companies looking to expand into Indonesia. Of the firm's 200+ clients, 80% are multinational corporations (MNCs) with headquarters that span 10 countries in ASEAN, APAC and around the globe.

With Tricor Indonesia operating for over 11 years in Indonesia, this transaction aims to further enhance the firm's presence in the country, strengthen its ability to provide payroll, accounting and tax compliance services to its local and international clients operating in Indonesia and expanding across ASEAN.

Lennard Yong, Tricor Group CEO, said: "Rivaled only by China and India, Indonesia is the third-fastest growing economy in the G20 and continues to lure foreign investors and MNCs. Thanks to recent developments, such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), pan-Asian supply chains continue to pull the economic center of gravity closer toward ASEAN and bolster foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities throughout the region. The addition of PT ASA Indonesia strengthens our client proposition and will proliferate our marketing-leading corporate service solutions throughout Indonesia, ASEAN and across APAC."

Jimmy Budhi, Founder, PT ASA Indonesia, said: "By joining forces with Tricor, we see a clear opportunity to become the market leader in Indonesia's expanding corporate services. Indonesia is among the most desirable markets for foreign trade and investment, especially as it continues to attract inbound investment from neighbouring countries in ASEAN and APAC. This strategic collaboration not only strengthens our abilities to support domestic and foreign clients in navigating the challenging regulatory environment of Indonesia but also deepens our footprint to help MNCs expand globally. By combining PT ASA Indonesia's expertise with Tricor's globally recognized strength in corporate services, our team is well-positioned to be the one-stop service provider for corporate clients locally and throughout the region."
