JAKARTA – PT Borneo Sawit Perdana (BSP) has received IDR 192.14 billion of fresh funds from the proceeds of the initial public offering (IPO) of its parent company, PT Nusantara Sawit Sejahtera Tbk (NSSS). The money will then be spent on building its factory and its supporting facilities.
In the prospectus of NSSS quoted Friday (10/3), the palm production plant is targeted to have a production capacity of 60 tons of fresh fruit bunches per hour. The location will be on a plot of land of 40 hectare (Ha).
