Additionally, in order to support business expansion and for its long-term financing, on 8th October 2009, the Bank successfully issued and listed Rupiah denominated bonds amounting to Rp 750 billion in Indonesia Stock Exchange. The bonds were issued with a three-year and five-year maturity and was given the national long-term rating of A + (idn) by Fitch Ratings. Subsequently, still in early October 2009, International Finance Corporation (IFC) committed to provide financing for BTPN in the forms of five-year Senior Loan and Convertible Loan. This credit facility is denominated in Rupiah in the amount equivalent to USD70 million. "The availability of funding from higher amount of public funds, bond issuance proceeds and loans from IFC has presented the Bank with the capability to keep expanding and optimize its intermediary function," explained Jerry.

By 30th September 2009, operating income reached Rp 1.57 trillion or increased 27% from Rp 1.24 trillion as of 30th September 2008. The increase of operating income was primarily attributable to the increase of interest income as the result of lending growth.
