pecker1: Dave, I think they have been trying to do a fund-raising since late 2013 but could never get it off the ground, hence the need for life support, largely from the founder and former CEO, Peter Miller. With the new resource statement, which more than doubles the indicated tonnage at the 0.52% grade, Oropesa now looks a much more economically viable project, particularly if you factor in its location in a mining friendly region in Spain, with superb infrastructure, plentiful power and water supply,and local authorities desperate to attract job generating businesses. So fund-raising soon at a sensible price should not be such an uphill struggle. Many would-be producers now realise the importance of starting on a smaller scale, minimising Cap Ex, and self-financing the bulk of their expansion.The PEA will be an interesting read. And yes, a couple of deep holes that show tin mineralisation at good grades extending well below 200 metres would certainly do wonders for its viability and the share price.
doobydave: I notice the tin price is now above $23,000/tonne - I wonder if the Indonesians are exporting again? A week ago, the LME Warehouse stockpile stood at 11,595 tonnes - a further reduction. Almost 90% of that sat in Johor, southern Malaysia. Meantime, Eurotin should be releasing the remaining Oropesa holes fairly soon, I would have thought. The last lot looked pretty good.
pecker1: Perhaps the picture of the tin man sums up a popular perception towards tin as an investment. But tin has moved on and now more than half of all tin mined is used in the electronics industry where it has largely replaced lead. In my view, it is the dark horse of the base metals, the market is in deficit, there has been no major tin discovery for the last 20+ years, and there seem to be very few explorers around with promising large-scale projects (but I don't know about China). From 1 October, a group of Indonesian producers (fed up with Western hedge funds and others shorting the tin price to oblivion) imposed an export ban on tin which they will not remove until the tin price exceeds $23,000t.Since then the price has recovered from below $17,000 to over $21,000 and LME stockpiles have fallen from around 22,500t to 16,500t. This is significant because the decline in the stockpiles will soon reach a point where industrial end-users will panic buy to secure supplies. And the fact that the Indonesian producers have acted together like this - and could do so again in the future - will put a premium on any new source of tin outside of their control. A week ago or so, I posted about tin on Chip's base metal thread but I think the two companies I mentioned are not eligible for inclusion in his list. These are: 1. Kasbah resources, listed on the ASX, with a project in Morocco. 2. Eurotin Inc, listed on the TSX, which has both hard rock and an alluvial projects in Spain And a third I found in the October issue of Resource Stocks, pages 74-75, 3. Consolidated Tin Mines, listed on the ASX, with projects in the Herberton district in Queensland. The market caps of all three are puny and their share prices have been hit like many other small mining companies. As they are quoted on recognised exchanges, they can be put into an ISA. Having loaded up on copper producers like WTI and FM, I wanted to diversify a bit. I have already taken a position in Eurotin, so I'm biassed, but I think their two main projects could be very interesting and their informative website is a cut above the rest. I think there is also an OZ miner/explorer in Tasmania which I will add to the list. If anybody else thinks tin has potential and knows of other companies with interesting projects, please could they post them up here.
igdavies: Trends favour TV producer Tinopolis - BUY Companies: TIN 31/03/2008 Following the relatively recent arrival of digital television, there has been a huge increase in the number of TV channels available to anyone who has satellite, cable or even just a Freeview digital set-top box. Broadcasters such as the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 have added several additional digital channels during the past few years, while a number of smaller broadcasters have launched their own, often highly specialised, channels in order to take advantage of the digital TV phenomenon. While many channels simply broadcast pop videos or repeats of programmes originally aired many years ago, there are a few that require new programmes targeted at the kinds of audiences these new channels are trying to attract (think BBC3 or BBC4). Of course, this means an increase in the trend for outsourcing TV programme production, which is good news for companies like Welsh independent media business Tinopolis. With its headquarters in Llanelli, Tinopolis is actually a group of companies with production centres in Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Oxford. It produces a variety of TV programmes, including drama, current affairs, documentaries and sports programming, as well as interactive content for customers in both the public and private sectors. Last year, the AIM-quoted group managed to achieve organic revenue growth of around nine per cent in spite of a fall-off in UK commissioning during the latter part of 2007. Pre-tax profits more than doubled to £2.7 million, while net cash flow generated from operating activities increased to £5.7 million from just £1.8 million the year before, prompting house broker Investec Securities to dub the group 'Cashopolis'. Tinopolis has done well while others in its industry have been struggling and the immediate future for the group looks very bright indeed. The company has strong revenue visibility with a very high percentage of its planned sales already contracted. Moreover, its wide range of customers and lack of dependence on any one contract mean that the business offers prospective investors some defensive qualities. One particular contract it will have been pleased to renew is its arrangement with the BBC to produce Question Time. Last year, Tinopolis beat 14 other independent producers to win a new three-year contract worth £5.5 million to produce the flagship current affairs discussion programme. Elsewhere, Tinopolis continues to produce editions of Channel 4's Dispatches current affairs programme and coverage of sporting fixtures such as the Grand National for the BBC from 2008, as well as various dramas and docudramas for ITV, Channel 4 and others. In terms of forecasts for this year and beyond, Investec expects Tinopolis to deliver a 96 per cent increase in pre-tax profits to £5.3 million in 2008, increasing by a further 32 per cent to £7 million next year. On a 'per share' level, these translate to 3.8p and 5p respectively, which makes the group's current share price look very cheap – especially when one considers the £11 million net cash (equivalent to 11.5p per share) that Tinopolis had on its balance sheet at the end of September. Given management's propensity for share buybacks – with the group having bought back 4.65 million shares last year (at an average price of 39.9p no less) – Tinopolis is an enticing prospect. With the group currently rated, from an enterprise value point of view, at less than four times forecast earnings for this year, we think its shares are well worth buying.
iaso: Well, if there is a private equity player looking at TIN its not having an impact on share price. Any idea who this may be?
igdavies: Acquisitions There has been considerable corporate activity in the television production sector during the year and we have been offered or approached a number of companies that could have been useful additions to the group. However, we are committed to building shareholder value and will not damage this fundamental principle by buying at values we regard as inflated. Our strategy of acquiring companies that complement our own businesses continues and during the year we acquired Video Arts Group Limited ("Video Arts") and APP Broadcasting Limited ("APP"). Would be interesting to see if there are any acquisitions in the pipeline - statement certainly hinted at it? However further acquisitions like the 2 made in '07 will not impact the share price that much. Maybe the UK market is overinflated - so what's next?
igdavies: think this share price reflects a poor year in general for the media sector. I the results next week are strong, (which I expect them to be following the previous trading statement) - but will this be reflected in the share price!
igdavies: Agree mixed bag this with re: previous trading statements - for organic growth (which seems to have happened) and aquisitions (2 tiny acquisitions that have hardly impacted on the overall turnover/profit of the co. No return of monies to shareholders, and the buy back scheme only purchasing 4m shares. There have been many media co. up for sale this year - but no hint of Tinopolis bidding for them! On the Broadcast indie survey 2007 - Tinopolis was no.6 (being outdone by shine and RDF media purely because of their acquisitions!) I know that it was going to take a bit of time to turn Mentorn's fortunes around (their programmes only making a profit of roughly 2% per programme)but I thought that this year would have seen the share price sig. rise. What are the city slickers looking for? Maybe the board of directors should look to increasing their stakes!
igdavies: Some good news - at last!! May see the share price escalate! Mentorn Oxford wins BBC religion tender - 19 Apr 2007 12:11 Mentorn Oxford, the Tinopolis-owned producer has won an order for 24 editions of BBC ONE's new Sunday morning religious programme, the company's second major contact win in a month. The deal, worth £1.2m, comes just weeks after Mentorn's success in winning a new three-year contract to produce BBC ONE's flagship political programme, Question Time, a deal worth £5.5m. The new programme, with the working title Heart and Soul, will be an ethical and religious debate-based format, recorded from a different venue in the UK each week. It will begin airing in September 2007. Steve Anderson, Managing Director of Mentorn Contemporary Factual said: "Mentorn has made Question Time an indispensable part of the BBC ONE schedule and we aim to do the same with this Sunday morning show. We'll be topical, relevant and by taking the programme out on the road, we'll be giving people an opportunity to have their say on national TV on the big issues that matter." "Winning two major BBC contracts in the space of a few weeks is a terrific achievement by Mentorn and a recognition of the huge reserves of talent and expertise in the company. It confirms Mentorn's status as the market leader for high quality debate television programmes." Heart and Soul, which was developed by a Mentorn team including producer Anna Murphy will be overseen by Head of Mentorn Oxford Elizabeth Clough and exec producer Hannah Wyatt. It will include a significant new media presence enabling viewers to engage with the big religious and spiritual questions each day. Mentorn and sister company Folio are one of the UK's leading suppliers of factual programmes for all the major broadcasters. This week alone programmes on air include Half-Ton Hospital and Real Crime on ITV1, Car Wars and Question Time on BBC ONE and Big Ideas that Changed the World on five. 2. First look format deal and new Head of Development for Mentorn - 19 Apr 2007 12:13 Mentorn, the Tinopolis-owned producer, is significantly boosting its format development by signing a first look deal with format creators and consultants Julia LeStage and Liz Mills, and hiring BBC Development Producer Dan Goldsack as its Head of Development. Julia LeStage and Liz Mills have worked on and overseen some of the UK's most successful entertainment and factual entertainment formats over the past ten years including Big Brother, A Place in the Sun and Changing Rooms. Former C4 Head of Daytime, the US-based Julia LeStage currently specialises in consulting, creating and developing factual entertainment and reality show concepts for British and American producers. Previously Head of Reality for Endemol UK, Liz Mills now runs Top TV Academy, the leading provider of production training and talent to the industry. Dan Goldsack is currently running the development team for BBC Features & Formats - the studio producing brands such as Top Gear, What Not to Wear and Watchdog. John Willis, CEO of Mentorn says: "Julia, Liz and Dan have worked on some of the biggest formats around. Rebuilding our format business in the UK and internationally is core to my strategy for Mentorn and working closely with our existing format team led by Dan Barraclough and Hannah Wyatt, I'm sure they'll help us achieve this objective." Julia LeStage says: "Working with John Willis is a joy and an honor. This will be my third time and I am looking forward to our next creative collaboration." Liz Mills adds: "I'm excited to be working with John and Julia. This is an excellent opportunity to be able to blend creative ideas with my training company experience. I'm really looking forward to it." Dan Goldsack says: "I'm excited about returning to Mentorn in my new role. Mentorn has a fantastic reputation for high quality output, and I'm looking forward to working closely with the talent at the company to expand Mentorn's development slate into entertainment-driven, younger-skewing factual programming." 3. Mentorn International sells Half Ton Hospital ahead of MIPTV - 19 Apr 2007 12:15 Mentorn International has announced a raft of sales of its Half Ton Hospital series, the launching of a new documentary brand, Car Wars, and changes to its sales team ahead of this month's MIPTV. The Tinopolis-owned distributor has sold its Half Ton Hospital series to11 countries ahead of MIPTV 2007. The series mixes strong human stories with medical science as families and doctors try to stop some of the world's fattest people from literally eating themselves to death. Already a ratings success in the UK, it provided the second highest audience for a factual programme this year on the UK's biggest commercial network, ITV1. Half Ton Hospital, produced by Folio, has been sold to territories including Nine Network Australia, RTL Netherlands, TVNZ New Zealand, TV3 Sweden and Denmark, and various networks in Eastern Europe. Hana Palmer, Head of Sales at Mentorn International says: "This series has great international potential. Most countries in the developed world are seeing rapidly rising obesity rates. Half Ton Hospital provides a shocking warning of what the future may hold for them." Mentorn International is also bringing its Car Wars brand to MIPTV for the first time. The 6x30 series follows the UK's only team of specialist police officers licensed to drive unmarked, high-performance cars in the high speed pursuit of criminals. Car Wars joins Mentorn International's other successful Folio brands such as Traffic Cops which has sold internationally to countries including the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia and New Zealand. Combining high octane action, humour and drama, these long running brands are among the most successful popular factual strands on British television, regularly achieving a 40 per cent share. The company also announced that in advance of MIPTV, David Leach has been appointed Managing Director of Mentorn International, in addition to his role as Director of Commercial & Business Affairs of parent company Tinopolis. Hana Palmer has been promoted to Head of Sales and Nina Frese promoted to Sales Executive. 4. Mentorn International Works Out and Makes a Baby ahead of MIPTV - 19 Apr 2007 12:16 Mentorn International has announced a series of sales and options deals for its factual entertainment and reality formats Make Me a Baby and Work Out, ahead of this year's MIPTV. The Tinopolis-owned distributor has sold completed episodes of its Work Out show to seven countries, including the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark and Sweden and is close to signing deals in several other major territories. The series, now into its second run on BRAVO USA, follows the trainers and celebrity clients at one of Hollywood's most glamorous gyms. The first series was a ratings success for the network and series two, which has just premiered, has opened to increased ratings. Mentorn International has also signed options for its Make Me a Baby factual entertainment format to broadcasters in Belgium, Italy and Australia, with the format already in production for NCRV Netherlands. Make Me a Baby, due to launch soon in the UK for the BBC, is described as the A-Z of Baby Making – debunking the myths and unraveling the science as the series follows 100 couples from conception to childbirth.
sandbank: EXPLORER: I agree the TIN share price looks like a disaster area at the moment and the company needs to start issuing a run of positive RNSes and burnishing its image....a couple of industry awards and some new contracts would be good. They should also give David Dimbleby a seat on the board (he is 50% Welsh) . After all, they put the presenter of their daily Welsh-language tv show, Angharad Mair, on the board - so why not give the host of Question Time a seat too - perhaps by way of compensation for him not getting the BBC DG job? Going back to the Dafydd Evans story - well that's already in the price and is now old news.The crash happened in 2004 and Evans - although still nominally on the TIN staff - is a dead man walking. He is not on the board - and I don't think ever was, even though he had "director" in his title. He's now been airbrushed out of TIN website. If he's sent to jail TIN would be entitled to can him without compensation - indeed they probably could fire him anyway. Observers do not think he would be missed and his departure is unlikely to affect the TIN share price other than positively. My main concern about this incident was not the outcome of last week's court-case but that Evans had been issued with a high-spec Merc as a company car and was being allowed to live in a plush suburb of Cardiff rather than in the grittier estates of Llanelli 50 miles to the West where the company is based. He must therefore have been making a 100-miles-a day round trip - not good for company expenses. Perhaps TIN should now issue its executives with altogether cheaper and flimsier vehicles which might concentrate their minds when driving.
