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).
Strong trading leads to upgrades
22 Mar 17
On the back of today’s positive trading update and slightly upgraded profit forecasts for FY2017, FY2018 and FY2019 we have reviewed our DCF analysis. This has led to an increased DCF valuation per share of 1500p (from 1200p) which we have made our new target price (from 1200p). Both TFP and JC Paper have contributed to the upgrades shown in the table below as have favourable currency movements. With the potential for further upgrades due to capitalising 3DP costs to come we maintain our Add recommendation.

Bang to rights
21 Mar 17
Tullow unexpectedly announced a US$750m rights issue on Friday at a 45.2% discount to the previous close. While this step confirms our investment thesis, the scale of the discount and the timing look like a slap in the face for investors and/or indicative of a weaker financial position than we are modelling. We publish revised estimates to reflect the impact of the issue and cut our Target Price to 215p per share (from 245p). We maintain our Hold recommendation.
Panmure Morning Note 22-03-2017
22 Mar 17
Acacia Mining and Endeavour Mining confirmed merger talks have now ended with Endeavour claiming an inability to “create adequate value for Endeavour shareholders”, most likely, we believe, given the disappointing ruling from the Tanzanian government on copper-gold concentrate sales. We were positive on the merger and believed a credible London listed Pan-African producer capable of challenging Randgold, would have been established. We make no change to our Hold recommendation today, and expect the shares to be marked lower in early trade.
