Industry outlook

Once developed, we calculate that Tulu Kapi is capable of generating free cash flow of c £40.9m a year and paying average (maximum potential) dividends of 2.1p/share for the six years from FY23-28, which we value at 6.4p/share (at a 10% discount rate). However, this valuation increases to 12.9p in the event that KEFI is successfully able to leverage its cash flow from the mine into other assets in the region. In the meantime, it is trading on a resource multiple of just US$7.54/oz - 26% below our estimate of the global average discovery cost of an equivalent resource.
