maca1212: Zendo, When you talk about last years losses are you referring to 2016 or do you have a crystal ball into the as yet unnannounced 2017 results? in 2016 they reported a loss of $3.7 million, but this was of course after 'revaluation' of the bond debt down by $2.1 million - so I make the 'real' losses in 2016 $5.8 million. In 2015 they produced 561.9 metric tonnes of crystallised iodine in 2016 474.2 tonnes and in 2017 they have produced 503 tonnes. Although according to IoF prices recovered later on in 2017, according to the USGS here: hTTps:// The average price seen in 2017 was circa 10% lower than 2016. The rather unfortunate thing in some ways for IoF is that the Black - Scholes bond/share price revaluation is now going to run the other way in 2017's accounts, and while they made remarkably little effort to point out the artificial positive impact of this revaluation in the 2016 accounts, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will be trumpeting its 'wholly technical' impact in 2017's. I await the 2017 report with interest, like you I believe that IoF still has a way to go before it can really demonstrate that they have turned the corner, and the continued forebearance of the bond holders will be a key part in that. 2017 is likely to be a dire kitchen sink kind of year for the company, it remains to be seen whether the share price can evade the financial realities that are likely to be revealed in the report. Profitability here depends upon a significant uplift in the iodine price (I suspect to $32-34+) - the company has done a good job of extracting profit from lampricide, but that on its own is insufficient. To say that the company is not a commodity geared stock is patently ludicrous. DYOR M
severnof9: I thought I would look back at some previous newswire reports on Iofina in 2013 the Co were commissioning IOF 3 I have extracted this from the report Iofina’s broker said 2013 had been a “proof of concept year” for the group, adding: “Iodine production should ramp up strongly in 2014.” It repeated its ‘buy’ advice and 230p a share price target, which gives significant headroom for growth. The stock, up 144% in the past year, is currently changing hands for 172p, for a rise of 2.5% on the day. However, Investec conceded its assumptions are more conservative than Iofina’s current plans, and it underlined just how value generative the roll out of these plants is. It states that for a capital cost of US$2-3mln around US$20mln of value is added at an iodine price of US$20mln I think the final line should read iodine price of $20. [...] Is the recent increase in the share price due to the near completion of IO7 given that on a conservative assumption a completed plant adds $20 Million to the value of the Co even when the Iodine price was at $20? Will we ever see a £2.30 share price target again?
superg1: On the dilution side you have $20 mill at 25p per share average re the loan notes. Current exchange rate 1.3 it adds about 60 mill shares making it around 180 mill in issue. The debt not yet drawn down in full 6% interest pa. Notes payable by June 2019. I see IOF can demand conversion of the notes if the share price goes over 50p for 5 consecutive days. "e) the Company may require that any or all of the Notes outstanding be converted into Ordinary Shares following the publicly quoted closing price per Ordinary Share being 50p or more for at least five consecutive trading days;" Using a PE of 15 if they were in profit then it equates to .83p per mill profit. So £5 mill profit would mean around a 40p share price then add in the growth factor if that was in play. All things being equal then each $1 rise in the iodine price adds about 6p. That assumes io7 and 8 in play with around 800mt plus per year. In short if the iodine price does well then the IOF share price is going to take off.
rogerbridge: We have to remember that there is an election in two days time and many have taken money off the table, since the Labour Party apperering to be neck and neck with the Conservatives. Some weeks ago, it looked a stroll for May, now investors are not sure. I think May will win, and there will be some re-investing, otherwise, the market is probably in for a drop. One thing is sure, as the iodine price increases, so will the IOF share price.
jonnybig: Half a pence half a pence half a pence downward Into the valley of death Fell the IOF share price LOL!!! JonnyB:)
rogerbridge: The oil price is down at the moment, interestingly, around February time a chartist who is usually quite accurate forecast that crude would be $46 in July, down to £38.43 in July and back up to $60 in November. Who knows, but traders can not make money unless the crude price goes up or down, there is no money to be made if the price is flat. The result is that we get volitility with all of the money slopping about in the markets, due to Q.E. Money has to go somewhere and eventually it will go back into crude, the question is when. It's a pity about the IOF share price but the board have never been ones to release rns's and talk things up.
joestalin: According to Yahoo (yes I know) there has been no IOF share price change since 10.20 this morning. Either the interest in it has dissipated or it has been suspended. Has anyone been following this today?
johnsdale: There are still bulls left but there is and has been nothing to rally around for a long time. I set aside a large sum to buy back into IOF from around the 7p mark, however as I've watched it capitulate and fall without any care from the board or putting a penny of their own money in I'm really not so sure now. I bought my first chunk of IOF shares just after Biggys investment at around 50p so nowhere near as high as some who are left here. Foolishly I took chunks at 10p intervals as this went down, believing like many here that the underlying principals were good. Like Rheumking said an iodine price war and earthquakes are beyond there control and no one can blame them for that. However the bond issuance compared to a funding was their fault and that could have been corrected as the share price fell. When biggy got involved we had monthly updates on production which gradual release of other news, which helped reassure investors each month. That was stopped once all the plants came on line (from memory I think the share price was about 65p at that point). Since then I haven't really seen any care or time from the company or any effort to preserve shareholder value. It's alarmed me and against my better nature I ignored it. Not getting the water decision was a big blow and the fundamentals of the company have been pulled into question ever since. However like Beez says they could have done a funding at any point all the way down but now they have probably left it too late if that's what's needed to survive. I have a lot of decision making too do over the weekend about whether I continue to support the price or whether I get out at any costs on Monday into next week. My holding is about a million shares, I'm in a position to double or treble that holding if I believed that IOF were capable of turning the corner and I suspect many here have the same or decisions to make. However if there is no statement on Monday/Tuesday I think my decision may have been made for me. The bod at that point simply has no regard for shareholders or the value so why should I waste another penny of my money or my time in that situation. They issued a release after we dropped from 22p to 9p stating they were operationally robust after the earthquakes which shored things up for a time. However they dropped the bombshell with the end of year production that they had made a loss despite saying they made a profit before ebita all the way through 2015. The size of the loss? We simply do not know and let's face it if Hekking hadn't of gone we'd still be around the 8p mark right about now, hell even if they found a permenant replacement we wouldn't have dropped below 7p All the uncertainty is of their own making with partial or cryptic releases, the fact is "operationally robust" does not mean they have enough cash to survive however many times we read it. I struggled with the Bears view for a long time as I believed they were way too negative, but I've realised I came to the board late and they had that view after being kicked off the board or shouted down. I've done my own calcs and depending on the value of the contract and the profit margins on the derivatives business it still may not be so bad. The currency fluctuations have improved by around 15% since January and are likely set to continue which should fuel a similar or if not larger boast in the iodine price. The earthquake issue which knocked 15p off the share price has largley abated. Water is still a 50/50 and I remember a time when that alone could add 5-10p to the share price. I've read all the other permits as many others have and to deny IOF would mean that all other permits would be invalid, so it seems easier to change the point of law than eventually revoke all permits or fast track IOF's through with better letters of intent. I remember the oil price crashing putting pressure on the share price, that looks to have stabilised and the Bakken players are still producing against everyone's expectations. The only thing that can sink the company is cash flow and let's face it a simple production report next week won't lift this share. They will notify us whether they are a going concern or not and its as simple as that. If they are not then the bond holders get everything left and if they are the share price will double or triple from here. Phoenix is right in that the selling is made worse by all the buyers sitting on the sidelines. With positive news the share price would jump 50%-100% or more in a day, with bad news Depending in the content I'm not sure any of us would be able to get out in time. If it's a leak like fresh mentions then we will know and be out of our misery by Monday morning. Truth is we help create the bottom, there was a time when a message from biggy could create a bear squeeze and we all unfortunately believed his statements about hoovering up shares at various points all the way down. I will make ready a sizeable share buying chest for Monday morning and beyond, but whether that involves me frantically buying or frantically selling rests on what the company do between now and Tuesday. As much as I still believe in some of the fundamentals (and I've gone against the herd and won many times in life and in business) I'm not prepared to be involved with a company that doesn't care enough, or are not able to issue news on time or support a share price that has collapsed 50% in two months or 80% in 4-5 months, I don't even want to think about the £2-£2.50 days that some of you have witnessed and I'm glad my pain has been relatively short lived. I wish the Bears and the Bulls well on this, I have no emotional attachment to this share anymore and I salute the Bulls for calling it right so far. Forgive the size of the post its my own way of setting out my investment path so far and helps me keep my mind clear for the weekend, I wish you all the same!
ridicule: I agree johnsdale. It is the future that will drive the IOF share price, performance last year will help the price in the short term if it is good; destroy it if it proved to be bad, but I think we can all assume the 2015 target will be met from last Trading update. The real point is that, even if the 2015 target is met, it will not produce enough financial firepower to fund the necessary forward investment - IO1 and mobiles. This investment is badly needed to derisk the 2017 convertibles in May 2017. That is why I have banged on often in the past that the Company should have gone for a rights issue when the share price was North of 70p, instead they relied on a successful outcome to the Water licence application and that the iodine price would hold up better than it has. In the lack of further announcements, it seems to me that the Company are still relying on these two factors. Both factors are outside the Company's control, however, and, having run a business myself, cash is king and always make sure you manage it with factors that you control, not others. The concentration on this Board over the past 18 months on whether the Water Appeal would or would not succeed and whether Chile output would or would not fall to provide a firmer iodine price, has been the predominant debate here. and the outcomes have not, so far, been as predicted or hoped. While these issues have provided good background research, they should have been just that. Instead, they have dominated this Board and there has been very little discussion about the performance of IOF itself. The last few posts have been most welcome in this respect.
ridicule: eagle eye Surely the optimum price is £1.999. All gain with no pain. On a more serious note, the willingness to sell into any penny rise, reflects the general loss of faith a lot of PIs have in the way the company has managed it's liquidity over the past 2 years. Had they come out with a rights (old fashioned, but just)around the 75p + level on the way down, their financial war chest would have been able to fund the 01 redeployment and the development and deployment of mobiles. There are only 127.57m shares in issue and we need a capital warchest asap, but sadly not at the current share price level. They clearly relied on the water licence coming good but this was a mistake. Always keep the Company's ability to invest indepedant from outside forces, including the market that has savaged the IOF share price because they were seen as naked in terms of their ability to invest in a growth plan once the share price started to tank.
