Expansion Funding

THE SMILING Hill Group is transforming a dilapidated housing complex into a gated community providing serviced apartments, suites, houses, guesthouse rooms and associated hospitality services targeting the working expatriate community on Batam Island, Indonesia’s fastest growing region.

Batam (population about 1.25 million) is 20 kilometers by fast ferry from Singapore and is a designated Special Economic Zone and Free Trade Zone. It is a major center for light and heavy manufactures and is attracting growing numbers of high income expatriate professionals and specialists.

Smiling Hill is profitable with consistent positive cash flows and has demonstrated the viability of its business model. Annual revenues are running at more than SGD$1.1 million (2013) and growing. The company carries less than 4% debt.

Smiling Hill is seeking to raise SGD$2.25 million (US$1.8 million) of debt equity and debt as expansion funding to be used to convert and upgrade an existing land bank of houses as quality serviced  studios and apartments and to purchase other available properties for renovation and conversion.

New funding will go directly into the build out program, protecting investors by quickly converting new funding into tangible assets and adding value. There will be no cash out by foundation investors resulting from this financing.

Minimal funding is required for infrastructure (capital equipment) as this is already an established, profitable business and overheads are already expensed.

The Smiling Hill project is fully Western owned and controlled with key assets held in an accredited Foreign Investment Company (PMA). This structure is grandfathered - under current corporate laws and regulations a foreign entity wishing to enter the property development field in Indonesia would be required to have Indonesian partners. Smiling Hill is exempt from these provisions.

All necessary licenses are in place for the property development and hospitality operations and have been obtained through proper channels.

This is NOT a blue sky “start-up” but rather is a serious established and profitable business with a proven business model, experienced and culturally aware management, predictable returns and strong growth potential. We have done the hard yards and the reality-based development planning and are ready to go to the next level.

This project would suit any investor with an interest in emerging market property or hospitality sectors. It would particularly suit any investor with experience in the serviced apartment sector looking to enter Indonesia via a wholly Western-owned and established operation with experienced and capable management.
