According to him, a large part of the net loss was due to compensation based buffer stock (not in cash). The stock-based compensation component is an important factor, he said, because human resources are a major asset for tech companies.
He said GoTo applied Indonesian Financial Accounting Standards (SAK Indonesia), where share-based remuneration was recorded the most in the first year and would decrease in subsequent years.
The total cash salary expenditure of GoTo’s management over the past nine months is IDR 22.9 billion. Meanwhile, GoTo’s total management net income has reached IDR 8 trillion.
