Investment summary

PAF produced 160koz in FY18 cf prior guidance of 157-160koz, with the outperformance exclusively attributable to underground operations at Evander. For the first time, management also provided guidance of 170koz for FY19, which was materially above our prior expectation on account of construction at Elikhulu continuing to progress “ahead of schedule”, such that it is now entering the commissioning phase with first gold expected in August and full production two months later.

Last updated on 27/07/2018

Industry outlook

Elikhulu will add c 52koz pa to PAF's production profile and propel EPS towards c 2p/share. Additional near-term opportunities include the Egoli project (46% IRR and ZAR1.74bn NPV), the Fairview sub-vertical shaft project (adding 7-10koz to production pa) and the Royal Sheba project (c 30koz pa). Our updated all-in valuation of PAF is 17.53p plus the value of c 20.1m underground Witwatersrand ounces, which could add a further 0.17-4.15p/share, depending on market conditions.
