In H1, 2020 and the period directly following (Q3, 2020), EQTEC has made substantial operational progress, significantly boosting its project pipeline and strengthening its balance sheet with an over-subscribed £10m fund raising in July 2020. Revenue generation in H1, 2020, however, was constrained due to the impacts of Covid-19 and severe fires in California. We now forecast revenue of €2.4m in 2020E, compared with our previous forecast of €7.0m. Importantly, no projects have been cancelled. Delayed revenue is expected to flow into 2021E. Select new projects, having been secured in 2020, are expected to reach financial close in 2021E and 2022E, in addition to those existing projects under development in those years. As a result, we are increasing our 2021E and 2022E forecasts.

The offtake agreement between Piedmont lithium (ASX:PLL) and Tesla (NasdaqGS:TSLA) announced on 28.09.2020, whereby Piedmont will supply a new lithium hydroxide plant to be built by Tesla in Texas with spodumene concentrate, has created some strong buying momentum for lithium stocks in North America and Australia. The Piedmont share price was up over 200% after the announcement with Tesla – though the magnitude of the rise perhaps had more to do with the Tesla brand.

The stock was up 12% on Friday, 25/09, sparked by the positive outcome on Vodafone’s dispute with the Indian tax authorities. This is encouraging for Cairn, but note that both cases differ. While the tax authorities simply erased Vodafone’s tax bill, they owe up to $1.4bn to Cairn, and could offer more resistance.

Another set of record results from Iofina, with H1 2020 benefiting from improved iodine pricing, solid cost controls and robust operational performance. Some of the shine will be taken off by the cautionary tone over the impact of COVID-19 on current iodine demand and pricing. Nevertheless, these results on top of the recent debt refinancing again demonstrate the continued improvements Iofina is delivering both operational and financially. It now has a solid platform of diversified low cost iodine production from five plants, a range of iodine and non-iodine specialty chemicals products, an improved balance sheet and a new lending partner with which to deliver its ‘prudent growth’ ambition.

Jersey Oil & Gas has announced that it has selected a greenfield four-legged platform to develop the Greater Buchan Area which will utilise existing export pipeline infrastructure. We see near-term scope to increase materially our fair value estimate from 268p. We believe that today's news is price material and that it sets the scene for a near-term catalyst rich outlook for the company. It is an opportune time, in our opinion, to gain exposure to the Jersey Oil & Gas investment opportunity.

On Monday, Piedmont Lithium announced a Tesla offtake agreement for 30% of its future spodumene concentrate production. Piedmont’s shares jumped from A$0.10 cents to A$0.38 cents and closed at A$0.30 cents this morning. In addition to the positive association with Tesla, we believe that the market now recognises the reality of Piedmont’s project and upcoming spodumene shortages. Key takeaways for Savannah shareholders are:
Since our last note, KEFI has continued to advance towards its goal of achieving production in FY22. Among other things, this has included raising £3.7m in equity in May and establishing early-stage mining specialist, RAB Capital, as a cornerstone investor. More recently, it has also announced a maiden mineral resource at Hawiah (in Saudi Arabia) of 19.3Mt at a grade of 1.86% copper equivalent containing 359kt CuE (or 1.2Moz AuE) and a corresponding preliminary economic assessment (PEA), which confirms it as a high priority target. The company has consistently maintained its goal of formally agreeing its full funding structure with all participants in October 2020, ahead of construction in FY21 and first gold in FY22 and, to this end, development activities have continued unabated, despite COVID-19.

Central Asia Metals (CAML LN) reported robust interim results in the context of the H1 2020 backdrop; solid production and the company’s fundamentally low cost base meant that CAML remained profitable despite the sharp pullback in commodity prices during the period which led to a 17% YoY decline in revenue to US$70.8m. Consequently, EBITDA was down 25% YoY to US$42.5m despite a decline in unit costs of 6% YoY at Kounrad and 9% YoY at Sasa to US$0.48/lb and US$0.43/lb respectively which cushioned the impact of the weaker the top line. With no significant one offs in the period, EPS of US$0.10/sh. was 33% lower YoY.

H1 2020 results; progress on concept selection
H1/20 has been a highly successful period for United Oil & Gas, during which time it has successfully transformed into a full-cycle E&P company. Key to this success has been the Abu Sennan acquisition, with net production increasing to 2,700boepd at the end of June. The significant production and reserve additions delivered as part of the 2019-20 drilling campaign emphasises the considerable upside that still remains in the block. Post period, United were granted a 100% operated working interest and an 18-month extension to the Walton-Morant licence, offshore Jamaica. At 229mmbbls, the Walton-Morant licence has the potential to have a major impact on United, which we value at US$724.3m or 76.8p/share unrisked. We update our valuation, increasing our price target to 19.1p/share, a 549% premium to the current share price and reiterate our BUY recommendation.

Chariot’s interims represent something of a line in the sand for the new management team, with historic oil-focussed deepwater exploration spend written-off, demonstrating its recent corporate and strategic ‘reboot’, which has ushered in a more entrepreneurial approach. Strategy has shifted away from higher-risk frontier exploration in favour of opportunities that better fit the energy transition. With the annual cash burn cut 45% to US$2.5m, no remaining work commitments and period-end cash of US$5.8m, management has a clear path ahead to deliver on its ambitions.

Hargreaves’ FY20 results are very solid indeed. As previously reported, the only noticeable impact from COVID was in the slippage of Blindwells’ land sales, which were due to conclude during the lockdown period. Site activity has resumed and sales remain on track to conclude in the current year. A final dividend of 4.5p has been declared and the outlook statement is measured but confident. We reintroduce forecasts today, effectively reinstating our pre-COVID expectations. Hargreaves is well positioned to deliver a period of significant, renewed growth with the prospect of a double digit dividend yield from FY22 as HRMS profits are distributed.
