Commodities daily: Forgotten energy By Javier Blas FT 10 Jan 2011 For many investors, oil and natural gas are the only energy commodities. But thermal coal, used to fire power stations, is also important even if it is often overlooked. Don't get me wrong, oil is still the most important source of energy, but rather than concentrating only on whether its price its $100 a barrel, investors should also pay attention to whether thermal coal prices continue their climb up towards records. Thermal coal is still the main source of electricity around the world. For example, China, the world's biggest energy consumer, relies on it for more than 80 per cent of its electricity supplies; Japan, around 65 per cent, and the US, for nearly 40 per cent. The cost of thermal coal in the Australian port city of Newcastle, a benchmark in the coal-dependent region of Asia, has risen above $130 a tonne, the highest in two years. Worse, senior mining executives and traders say that annual contracts, which run April-April because they are set on the basis of the Japanese fiscal year, could rise as high as $140 a tonne, an all-time high, above the record of $125 a tonne set in 2008. The chatter about record prices is well above the forecast from most City of London analysts, who are forecasting annual contract prices of $115-$125 a tonne. The negotiations for the 2011-12 year with Japan, South Korea and Taiwan are about to start and traders believe they are going to be one of the most difficult ever. The increase in thermal coal annual prices, which affect around 40-50 per cent of the seaborne trade of coal, will put pressure on electricity prices across the world, particularly in Asia, where coal is the main energy commodity to fire power stations. The flooding in Queensland state in Australia is partly behind the spike, but there are other elements at play related to unusual heavy rains. Wet weather in Colombia, South Africa and Indonesia has also curtailed production in those key exporters. Meanwhile, demand is strong, with China and India buying more and more overseas. For investors, a lack of thermal coal futures means that it is difficult to gain exposure easily to rising prices. True, sophisticated investors could turn to thermal coal swaps, with several banks involved in the trade of private, bilateral over-the-counter financial contracts. Beyond, equities are the only source of exposure, with companies from London-listed Xstrata to New York-listed Peabody. But the array of equity investment will increase this year with the arrival of two key companies to the London market: Bumi, the Indonesian thermal coal exporter, which is listing in the UK through Vallar, the London-listed cash shell founded by financier Nat Rothschild; and the flotation mid year of Glencore, the trader which is a powerhouse in coal.

Results at the end of the month - not expecting great numbers, 2nd half guidance will be of interest.

Results soon, should be decent, interested in any forward production guidance as washing capacity has been increased to 170,000 tpm. It's weird to have no idea how big resources are. Any ideas on this front bisi?

If he missed on the bonus the dividend could have been tripled. Yes, this could do very well, but I'd rather have a tripled dividend than the director in question taking a £1m for himself. Is this a Heller party or run for shareholders!

Back to Andrew Heller - £961k of emoluments including a racey £600k bonus. That's outrageous when the dividend costs £366k. Not exactly a company run on behalf of shareholders. They have done well with the Company, but this is getting a bit silly. He's getting paid a FTSE 100 salary!

Very good results and strong outlook. Well priced at NAV. Chief Executive gets paid far too much, otherwise good results.

sky, agree with you. Amazing that this has not had much coverage so good for anyone who wants to slip a few buy orders through!

Encouraging results. You do have to focus on cash figures, one day the property value will come back up again, and meantime BISI is self-financing.

Annual Financial Report now out Headlines: Results for the year ended 31 December 2008 RECORD PERFORMANCE AT SOUTH AFRICAN COAL MINING OPERATIONS * Record profit before tax in excess of GBP6 million (realised) (2007: GBP2.3 million) reflects impact of open cast mining at Black Wattle Colliery * GBP5.1 million of profit before tax (realised) made in second half of 2008 * Monthly production at Black Wattle rises to 130,000 metric tonnes per month * Mine CAPEX, due for completion in Q2 2009, will increase plant capacity to 170,000 metric tonnes per month * Investment property portfolio revalued in line with the market but recession has not had any effect on rental income or lettings * Dividend increased by 16.7% to 3.5p per share Buried in the report. Earnings per share - diluted 2.83p Write downs on the property almost match profits from mining. Also, I see that they expect to stop the continuous miner this year.

No news, except results are due any day and they should be very good- on the mining front. Property values will have taken a big hit possibly cancelling out most of the mining profits, but the property hit is a non cash item.

Just looking in here. Can someone give me the lowdown on this Pegasus that you are talking about - can't find refernce to it on the company website. Who are their main customers? Thanx in advance.

Given the world recession and (imo temporary) weakness in oil and coal prices, BISI are in a strong postition at the moment to negotiate a good deal over new coal reserves like Pegasus. However, I have a relative in Johannesburg and deals seemed to be conducted at snails pace over endless BBQ's.
