Ilovica-Shtuka is a large project (ultimately it will account for 1-2% of Macedonian GDP) in a poor area of Europe with high unemployment. Now that parliamentary elections are completed, the stage is set for Euromax to raise equity and for the government to grant final construction permits early in CY17.
TSX listing approval
21 Jun 16
Since our last update note, Euromax has announced a number of developments that represent a systematic de-risking of the Ilovica project, including 1) the first tranche of convertible debt funding by CCC and similar financing by the EBRD; 2) submission of the EIA to the Macedonian Ministry of Environment as the first step for its international ESIA; 3) German government confirmation of UFK eligibility for the debt financiers of Ilovica; and finally, yesterday 4) approval to move to the main board of the TSX.
Strategic relationships cemented
18 Apr 16
On 8 April, Euromax announced that it is to raise up to US$30m via a strategic alliance with the mining finance vehicle of Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC). The raising will be in three tranches: a C$5.2m 9% convertible loan note this month, convertible at an equity price of C$0.40/share, plus (subject to the Ilovica project proceeding and CC Mining approval) US$5m in equity in tandem with up to US$20m in the form of a 10-year subordinated, secured loan facility at Libor plus 8%.

On 6 January, Euromax (EOX) released the results of its feasibility study on its 100%-owned Ilovica gold-copper porphyry project. At a headline discount rate of 5%, the reported post-tax NPV was US$440.1m (US$3.77/share), while the pre-tax IRR was 19.8%. Significantly, the estimate of initial capex reduced to US$474.3m cf US$501.8m in the 2014 pre-feasibility study. The result is indicative of a more capital-efficient project and comes despite the DFS using lower long-term metals prices.
Definitive feasibility study results
07 Jan 16
On 6 January, Euromax released the results of its feasibility study on its 100%-owned Ilovica gold-copper porphyry project, conducted by Amec Foster Wheeler, Tetra Tech, DMT, Golder Associates and Schlumberger, amongst others. While reported pre-tax and post-tax NPVs (using a 5% discount rate) are lower than the corresponding figures in 2014’s pre-feasibility study (PFS), at US$513.0m and US$440.1m (vs US$675m and US$558m) respectively, the corresponding internal rates of return are higher, at 19.8% and 17.8% (vs 18.6% and 16.5%). This is as a result of lower initial capex (US$474.3m vs US$501.8m, including contingency) and the more efficient phasing of cash flows. The result is indicative of a more efficient project in capital terms, which is likely to manifest itself in lower future dilution to equity holders, and comes despite the definitive feasibility study using lower long-term metal prices of US$1,220/oz Au and US$2.90/lb Cu (vs US$1,250/oz and US$3.00/lb in the PFS).

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
Playing the long term, with short-term risks

After the publication of the annual results, we update our view and highlight the key points. Q4 16 key highlights As a reminder, the company reported results 30% below expectations at $400m for Q4 16. By division: 1) In upstream, underlying replacement costs profit came to $400m, vs. a loss a year earlier of $728m and a loss of $224m in Q3 16, reflecting the ongoing lower costs which have benefited from simplifications, efficiencies and lower exploration write-offs. In the US, the loss is still $147m. Production came in at 2.19mbpd, down 5.5% yoy due to disposals and up 1.8% on an underlying basis thanks to ramp-ups. One of the key events during the quarter was the renewal of BP’s onshore concession in the UAE with a 10% interest in the ADCO onshore oil concession. In terms of outlook, production should be higher in 2017 and will depend on the timing of project start-ups, acquisitions, divestments, and OPEC quota. Also the Abu Dhabi concession will be visible as from Q1 17. 2) In downstream, replacement costs profit came to $877m, down from $1.2bn a year ago and $1.4bn in Q3 16. The US division showed a loss of $371m vs a gain of $1.25bn. Non-US Fuel business earnings halved to $417m due to the weaker refining environment as well as the impact from the particularly large turnaround at the Whiting refinery. In lubricants, profit rose to $357m, reflecting the continued strong performance in its growth markets and premium brands as well as simplifications and greater efficiencies. The margin should remain unchanged for Q1 17. 3) Rosneft. Underlying replacement costs profit came to $135m, down from $235m a year ago, affected by the increased government take. Production was at 1.15mbpd, up from 1.03mbpd a year ago. This reflects the completion of the acquisition of Bashneft and Rosneft’s increased stake in the PetroMonagas venture. BP received a dividend of $322m after deduction of the withholding tax, in July 2016. On the Macondo oil spill, the charge taken for the Q4 16 pre-tax was $530m. This reflects BP’s latest estimates for claims including business economic loss. The pre-tax cash outflow on costs related to the oil spill for the full year 2016 was $7.1bn. Cash flow Excluding the Gulf of Mexico payment, the operating cash flow was $4.5bn. Underlying operating cash flow excluding the oil spill-related payment was $17.8bn for the full year. Proceeds during the year and the scrip dividend were not enough to cover capex and the cash dividend. Gearing at the end of the year increased to 27% ($35.5bn debt), in the high range of the group’s target of 20-30%. Organic capital was $16bn, below original guidance of $17bn to $19bn. Capex in 2017 should be close to $16-17bn. Divestment proceeds should be higher in 2017, close to $5bn and then reducing by $2-3bn per year after 2018. The total costs of the Deepwater payment should fall to $2bn in 2018 and then $1bn per year as from 2019. In 2017, this should be close to $5bn. All in all, including the latest acquisitions, cash flow break-even should be close to $60/bbl in 2017.
