Like Indonesia, its national airline Garuda is a turnaround story. With most turnarounds, there are many growing pains.
Garuda had its IPO in Jakarta on Friday and suffice to say, it was a disappointment.
Garuda shares were priced at Rp750 per share (equivalent to 8 U.S. cents). Going into the IPO , there had been heavy criticism that the shares were overpriced compared to the price-to-earnings ratio of other airlines.
The market confirmed that. By the end of the day, Garuda shares finished 17% lower at Rp620 per share.
