PT Gudang Garam Tbk

Company Background

Gudang Garam is one of Indonesia's leading cigarette manufacturers, best known for its kretek clove cigarettes. But its share of the domestic market has steadily declined over the last decade to around 20%, as the company comes under pressure from rivals such as HM Sampoerna, which was acquired by Philip Morris in 2005.

The company also faces regulatory headwinds. The government frequently raises cigarette taxes, and now requires producers to put warning labels on packages to alert people to the dangers of smoking.

Surya Wonowidjojo, a Chinese Indonesian businessman, founded Gudang Garam in 1958. The success of his business made him and his family among wealthiest people in Indonesia. His son Susilo became president in 2009. Several family members sit on the board of directors and serve as commissioners. Less than a third of Gudang Garam's shares are publicly traded.

In addition to its core cigarette business, the company owns a media company and a charter airline.

Business Summary

PT Gudang Garam Tbk engages in the manufacture and trade of cigarettes. The firm operates through the following segments: Cigarettes, Paperboard, and Others. It offers clove cigarettes, including low-tar and low-nicotine variants, and the traditional hand-rolled kretek. The company was founded by Surya Wonowidjojo on June 26, 1958 and is headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia.
