Company news

Investment summary

After raising £5.5m in equity (at 2.5p/share) and mandating the placing of US$160m of Luxembourg-listed infrastructure bonds, KEFI has now expanded its binding agreement with local investors to sell an effective 26% project-level stake for US$38m (cf US$30m previously). In so doing, it has assembled the full funding consortium necessary to progress Tulu Kapi, while all outstanding government consents have now been granted ahead of community resettlement and construction in H119.

Industry outlook

Once developed, we calculate that Tulu Kapi is capable of generating free cash flow of c £41.7m a year, which we value at 7.21p/share in FY19 (at a 10% discount rate) or 5.27p/share assuming full conversion of its convertible loan facility and effectively unchanged at 5.26p with the expanded local participation in the project (at updated forex). However, this valuation increases to c 10p in the event that KEFI is successfully able to leverage its cash flow from the mine into other assets in the region.
