langostino: I bought my first Emed shares in 2010 for 9p. I bought some last week for a fraction less. Ergo there has been no increase in shareholder value during one of the greatest bull markets of recent times. In 2010 the company was run by a bunch of clueless Australians who every one with a functional brain cell knew would never get the permits, but they did serve as bait to draw in Trafigura to put together a working package. Now it is a functional profitable mine yet the share price remains the same. That is not to say that some investors have not traded gains, and some like rp have managed with uncanny skill to finesse every trough and peak to make a fortune. But the point remains that the share price has gone nowhere and my opinion remains that only corporate action will budge it. Unfortunately the danger still exists that we will be thwarted for a second time by Trafigura whose plans never seem to benefit any one but themselves.
rougepierre: So I asked myself, why would a company registered in Cyprus and quoted in London appoint Bank of Montreal as strategic advisor (apart from the fact that ATYM or AYM is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange - TSX)? Two possible reasons: First, 75% of the world's biggest mining companies are headquartered in Canada...: hxxp:// So if it was a bid, the most likely buyer would be First Quantum with a mining operation in Southern Spain (Las Cruces) But then as others have said, why would Traf/Xiang/Orion/Liberty, who have a 70% armlock and could resist any bid, sell now, just as Toure is going to get approval; just as Astor is going to be finalised and just as the expansion project has wings...doesn't make sense. And Traf would be the most likely bidder anyhow, to consolidate their own Spanish mining interests... Furthermore, it there was a bid approach the company would have to say "we have received an approach that might lead to a bid..." Second reason: A Canadian placing. Canadian mining investors are the most hungry in the world and there would surely be a relatively small discount (e.g. the recent 230p level?) And surprise, surprise, BMO Capital Markets, one of the biggest such players, is a subsidiary of Bank of Montreal.... hxxps:// But then they also do bid defences ('white knight')... Or maybe this is all a smokescreen... Markets fall... ATYM falls... Copper not surging... Astor ruling imminent... Appoint a Canadian Bank to look at your options, fire up bid speculation and the share price, in advance of the Astor ruling... Meanwhile, Astor and Toure are going to need up to £150m in total, which brings me back to the possibility of a Toronto placing at a small discount... GLA and have a great weekend...
brockwl2: Eric, I too have reduced considerably recently. Not because I think there are better ops elsewhere, but more because its an opportunity to rebalance an unbalanced portfolio, and go a touch risk off, due to the copper price. I was 42% invested in Atalaya at one point, as a result of averaging down in the dark days, and the great run it has had since. I've been selling small lumps from about 170p to 255p, but was still at 35% of my portfolio. I suspect a number of PI's are in similar positions to different degrees. I could only justify holding that percentage, while Copper looked strong. When the Copper price drops significantly and the market still offers you an opportunity to get out near the top, with that sort of holding, you'd be silly not to take the opportunity. I'm now down to about 15%. Which I intend to hold for now. Other Copper miners have pulled back in line with the Copper price drop, so wanting to stay in Copper, I have moved some of the funds into other Copper miners. CAML for example, which is currently 237p from a high of 340p. As a result I've de-risked somewhat and diversified some. I prefer ATYM as an investment over all the others, but it's currently a one trick pony and you just can't hold too many, for too long of that type of company. I'm very impressed with how well the ATYM share price has held up, during this fall. There is clearly buyers, out there keen to pick this stock up regardless of the Copper price. However my worry is that once these get filled the price will drop back. If so I'll be ready to take advantage of that. Given its costs are now close to the recent Copper low and its not currently making much money, makes the share price holding up all the more remarkable. For some reason this share has lagged Copper price movements both UP and DOWN. As a result this has presented good trading opportunities in the past, and may well do again. Lee
robmcelf2: Thanks Llb. Time will tell but think Atym share price will be heading north in the coming weeks
tommyttrades: So Canna updated last week after the announcement... .I'll try and format some of the figs. later After the last note and drop in target of 270-50 they've upgraded to 260p Highlights below as in total 11 pages...OR can mail One of the lowest capital intensities in the industry The focus of this project firmly remains its impressive capital intensity. At a ~US$94m cost, ATYM plans to build the growth project at a capital intensity of just US$6100/t. That is not only below our US$7000/t forecast, but also one of the lowest capital intensities in the industry. On a cumulative basis, the total capital intensity of Riotinto should now come to just US$4600/t. Cash costs expected to drop Cash costs expected to drop 6-8% Management has also forecast operating costs to drop 6-8% post completion of the project, which we forecast in mid 2019. Under the previous 40ktpa mine plan, ATYM had forecast lower grades in later years of the mine plan resulting in an average all-in sustaining cost (AISC) of USc233/lb. Under the expansion plans, ATYM management now expects the average AISC over LOM to come in closer to USc218/lb, a 6% reduction, and at no point in the revised 13-14 year LOM are costs forecast to go above USc230/lb. Target price up 4% to 260p, maintain Buy rating We continue to value ATYM using a weighted average of shorter term P/E and EV/ EBITDA based valuations (using market and sector multiples, respectively) as well as a longer term NPV valuation (cyclical multiple). On this basis, we have increased our target price on ATYM by 4% to 260p/share on a 2018 basis, reflecting an improved longer term valuation in our NPV. However, we also note that when we look at ATYM on all valuation measures we think the Riotinto growth project provides significant medium term valuation uplift by 2020. ATYM management now expects the average AISC over LOM to come in closer to USc218/lb, a 6% reduction. It is also worth noting that at no point in the revised 13-14 year LOM are costs forecast to go above the USc230/lb mark. This creates a more steady cost profile going forward due to the flexibility of the expanded operations and newer and scaled up equipment in 55ktpa phase of the project. During the recent share offering the ATYM share price receded to 163p at its low this week. We now see 58% potential upside to our revised target. With significant potential upside to our revised valuation (on a 2018 basis), we maintain our BUY rating on ATYM. However, our 2018 valuation range is now significantly wider and weighted towards our NPV, due to longer term benefits from the Riotinto expansion. Figure 8 below sets out our more consistent 2020e valuation range with Riotinto producing at +50ktpa. Figure 8: Longer term valuations project further significant uplift forecast by 2020e estimates Value Value Method Multiple p/sh Weight Weighted P/E 11.3 212 33% 71 EV/EBITDA 5.4 223 33% 74 NPV 1.0 347 33% 116 Total 261 Value Value Method Multiple p/sh Weight Weighted P/E 11.3 393 33% 131 EV/EBITDA 5.4 360 33% 120 NPV 1.0 347 33% 116 Total 367
erric: With grateful thanks to SH on iii board, who is as enthusiastic an LTH as a lot of us and posts quite a lot of interesting stuff on the other website. I have copied and pasted the entire post as I have no aspirations to become an editor. " Weekend thoughts Even though it is now over a month since we have had an RNS, another good week with the share price continuing to climb. The copper price Finishing the week at $3.12/lb the momentum has continued upwards. Many analysts and some copper producers have said that the copper price has risen too far too soon and this may be the case. There is no doubt that hedge funds and speculators have played their part but the momentum is still positive. Yesterday China’s PMI figures were positive and in about 10 days we will get the August import figures for China, if these are positive I believe the upward trend will continue. Even if the copper price is currently too high, it couldn’t have come at a better time for Atalaya. As a newly producing copper miner this increased margin means they can get some good figures released and reduce debts. Risks For the last few years, aside from the copper price, a lot of the risks were internal. Will they get permits, the mining licence, will they have sufficient funds to survive through to production, the Astor Court Case and will the company be taken over by Trafigura. Now I believe the greatest risks, apart from Astor, are mainly external, the copper price, the North Korean situation and the risk of another financial crisis. Apart from the copper price the other two would affect your portfolio whatever shares you hold. Astor This is a strange one, it creates uncertainty, is a potential drag on the share price and effectively stops dividends until it is resolved. However the company do not see it as all bad, they have an interest free loan, on which they are currently making no payments. If an appeal is allowed they could potentially end up with a better result. The good thing is we should find out this month if the appeal is to be allowed, that applies to both sides. The €8m EU grant I know this has been written off by the company but that is just for accounting purposes. The company believes it has fulfilled the conditions correctly but the Junta disputes this. Atalaya has made a claim in the Administrative Court in Spain. Apparently these claims are common in mining and Atalaya has a quite good record for winning. The downside is they take forever but don’t write this off yet as it isn’t a dead duck. If a positive result is forthcoming down the road they could pay a special dividend of 5p a share (just my idea) News to come The Half Yearly Financials should be released this week, quickly followed by a September Investor Presentation. Following the financials we should start to get updated broker notes, as far as I am aware the share price has only passed the Mirabaud target price of £1.75, all the others are still north of the current share price. Given that most of those were written months ago, in the case of Mirabaud I believe a year ago, the new respective target prices should be an improvement on the previous ones. At the end of October we will get the Q3 Operations Update, we are in a fortunate position because each of the three quarters will be progressively better in terms of financial results, the rise in the copper price has guaranteed that. The technical report for Touro should be on its way as well and obviously the Astor appeal decision. The copper demand looks strong for the future and, whilst most analysts cannot agree about where the copper price is going in the short term, most agree that a copper deficit is coming. That will support the copper price and in turn the Atalaya share price. AIMHO "
stockready: Keis thanks for your line of wisdom, I am not here to enlighten you or anyone, nor I suggested you all don't understand the fundamentals. I was referring to our master hero Eric who seems to be on supper charger pulling figures out of hats and expecting people to follow, not to mention the ridicules thread he created and seems getting some satisfactions Moderating people who speak slightly different to his views. if you talk about double the share price from this point (without any proper justifications) that means you know nothing, I mean him and not talk about others, I have already highlighted challenges ahead of us, as well as potentials of adding more values here risk/rewards are go hands in hands, you have to invest back to grow if you want to stay competitive so please don't think we make profit here or production goes up and suddenly our pockets gets full of money or share price double, it wouldn't, there are loads of factors involve including the global market on copper price and copper performance longer term, as well as paying off debts (even if they don't have a senior debt). This lead us to understand how important and sensitive ATYM is to the price of copper (very much)before even talking about production increase. base on potential maintenance costs and some of the unforeseen costs related to the repairs which comes with the age of the plants as well as some of the upgrade costs which they have already talked about and we are paying for those and will all be taken out from the profits, you potentially can't assume double the share price from here without considering all sort of potential scenarios that I just discussed which some can completely put a stop in to production for months. Operating costs needs to come down at faster rate, reduce the working capital deficit so it is truly silly and ridicules to say we double the share price from this point on (which already kind of double in the past 12 months) base on production increase alone, really means you have no clues, no idea, no understanding of your investment here, and I am referring to Eric specifically not anyone else, so please don't be offended. if you ask me I say for the next two years at least they should not even talk about PROYECTO TOURO exploration project, the focus should be production and not throw money after such a costly projects with unknown results and lots of risks, I didn't like that and I already express that to the board. there is no doubt the company have more visibility now than ever before that what is attracting investors, and I hope they realise they have come such a long way before set foot on throwing money/profit after pointless project which we comes with lots of risks, if they want to add value focus should purely be delivery and production for now at least in the next 2-3 years to come before set foot into costly exploration. Astor case still hanging and potentially may effect us negatively, on the positive side, prediction for commodity price increase from March 2018 on wards is very positive , specially oil and gas and also metal price, it will not surprise me at if we go above $3.6/lb at the very short space (next 8 months) which will have a massive positive impact here, but I still say PROYECTO TOURO should be stopped and I already told Al about this but pressure is from higher up to keep that going. GLA IMHO
scargs: waterloo01 I don't think Orion will be thinking about selling. Orion will be delighted to see the ATYM share price going up and they will be enjoying the ride but I cannot see them selling until they have made a healthy profit. Scargs
rougepierre: Bloomberg TV have just featured a major chart showing that "inflation adjusted copper" has broken sharply up out of a downtrend dating back to 2010!!! And surprise surprise, the hook at this end looks almost identical to the hook up in the ATYM share price...
rougepierre: Hi SBT and others...please read the following carefully... I've read every one of small holding's recent posts and also gone back and re-read every detail of the Q1 Results RNS. Apart from disgracefully failing to RNS the Astor Appeal for a month after it was lodged on 25 April 2017, there are some very revealing facts in the Accounts. Collectively these lead me to the conclusion that small holding is right that no payments will be made to Astor during 2017; further that this is a clever plan by ATYM almost certainly orchestrated with Indeed, given that the Company expects the Appeal to be resolved by the end of Q3 2017, this leads me to be certain that the plan is not to create a precedent by starting payments; and 'squeezing' Astor up to and beyond the Appeal. Furthermore, if profits are being restrained until after the Appeal, then ATYM will have the potential for a Bumper Q4 profit and cashflow to announce, either to soften the final Astor blow or, if the judgement is favourable, to give a double whammy boost to the share price .. 1 SH suggests that the Inventory is being deliberately built up and that may continue for the rest of the year. I concur completely and would go further, suggesting that production is being held back, for two reasons: First, I agree with SH's suggestion that this is a means to keep profits and thereby available cashflow down, so that Astor payments are not triggered. Second, on all reasonable expectations (and especially the Board of ATYM), copper prices should be significantly higher in a year's time. If copper trends higher during 2017 then we will be selling the accumulated inventory at a higher price than now and thereby making more profit. I believe the Board took a view on what sort of profit figure was acceptable for Q1 and left the rump in inventory. Remember, the Accounting Principle is that stock is valued at "the lower of cost or net realisable value"...i.e. in this case, cost. That leaves all the profit for the future. This also may explain the puzzlement about why the AISC isn't dropping. So...Cash cost is 1.83 (which means inventory value is low) and AISC is 2.15 (although it is STILL projected to drop to $2.00/2.10 in FY 2017...) So...profit is not accounted for until Inventory is sold; but the balance of AISC (i.e. $0.32) is accounted for as incurred, i.e. right now... So that's the first part of the ATYM Plan: keep profits reasonable, but defer as much as possible by means of building up Inventory, so as not to trigger Astor. But it goes much deeper than that... just read this core element of the Judgement carefully... "the Judgment requires that, in accordance with the Master Agreement, ARM must apply any excess cash (after payment of operating expenses, sustaining capital expenditure, any senior debt service requirements and up to US$10 million (for non-Proyecto Riotinto related expenses))" So there we have the incentive to make the Sustaining Expenditure as high as is reasonable until the Appeal is decided... There are no "senior debt service requirements", BUT.... ATYM is allowed to pay "operating expenses" before the Astor payments are triggered... And guess what...small holding has quite rightly identified that there is a "Working Capital deficit", but he has missed a very much important point... Trade Payables have been built up to a very high level... Operating Costs in Q1 were 11.498 million Euros, but only 7.15 million Euros were actually paid during the Quarter, leaving an outstanding balance of 61.716 million Euros, up from 49.309 million in Q4!!!! Now we have previously assumed that ATYM was using its Trade Creditors to finance the mine and working capital, but there were net Cash INFLOWS of 8.876 million Euros during the period and the Outstanding Cash Balance at the period end was 10.011m, up from 1.135m.... summary, it looks like ATYM has, with the support of all its major shareholders who have off take agreements, deliberately kept 19.434 million Euros of stockpiled copper (up from 6.195m!!) so as to defer profit and net cashflows... With the agreement of its Trade Creditors, deliberately held back payment they could have made, so that Trade Payables could easily exceed net cashflows for the whole of 2017 and beyond, entirely at the Company's discretion... Maximised Sustaining Costs to the highest legitimate level (maybe by front end loading), to keep profits down (but not cashflow, because most are not a cashflow item) And all of the above is legal and legitimate! And if you want the final kicker...while ATYM cannot repay any formal borrowings out of spare cash (they don't have any, anyhow), they can allow a build up of Trade DEBTORS, to keep available cash down...and guess what? Trafigura owes ATYM 4.139 million Euros... And indeed there seems to be nothing that I can see preventing ATYM from allowing Traf to build up this Trade Debtor, nor indeed asking Traf to make 'agency' payments on its behalf, e.g. progress payments for the Touro project... So all in all, this looks like a VERY SMART strategy by the Board and Management of ATYM (no doubt orchestrated by Traf), with just one catch... If it is Trafigura manipulating the share price to keep it down, with a view to a Bid, the reported underperformance would hold back the growth of the share price also and, supposing Traf made their bid after the settlement of the Astor Appeal, they would be getting all the held-up, accumulated value from the build-up of Inventory and the inflation of sustaining costs, and nobody would be the wiser.... And who's on the ATYM Board? The M&A Director of Trafigura.... AIMHO as usual and all observations welcome as usual...(not on the 'conspiracy theory CuFe...we've doe that one to death...)
