Business summary

PT XL Axiata Tbk engages in the provision of cellular telecommunications services. The company provides global system for mobile and telecommunications network services segment.

PT XL Axiata was founded on October 6, 1989 and is headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Company background

XL Axiata is Indonesia's second-largest mobile phone operator by subscribers. XL was established in 1995 as a joint venture between several companies, including an affiliate of Rajawali Group, an Indonesian conglomerate. The shares were later consolidated under the Axiata Group, Malaysia's largest telecommunications company and a two-thirds shareholder. The remainder is publicly traded on the Indonesia Stock Exchange.

Hasnul Suhaimi, an Indonesian, became the company's president and chief executive only a few months after resigning as president of rival Indosat in 2006. The move came amid allegations that Singapore's sovereign wealth fund, Temasek Holdings -- an indirect shareholder in Indosat and its rival, Telekomunikasi Selular better known as Telkomsel -- violated Indonesia's antimonopoly laws. Indosat did not publicly provide a reason for Suhaimi's departure.

XL spent $865 million to buy smaller rival Axis Telekom Indonesia, putting it ahead of Indosat. But the acquisition left XL with a hefty debt, prompting the company to sell 3,500 telecommunication towers to a local tower operator.
