SILVER WHEATON CORP
Q3 in perspective and Q4 preview
06 Dec 16
Silver Wheaton’s (SLW) Q316 results were characterised by exceptionally strong production from its gold assets, supported by record quarterly output at Salobo and Minto and a strong performance at 777. Production from SLW’s silver assets was in line with our expectations. However, a 20.0% under-sale of silver relative to production (towards the upper end of the historical range) and a 22.1% under-sale of gold resulted in a return of inventory to more normal levels. This detracted from financial results, although PBT was still at its highest since Q113 (when silver and gold prices were US$29.89/oz and US$1,645/oz, respectively). Given broadly flat production expectations, however, plus the end-of-year ‘flush through’ effect, no repetition of this inventory build is expected in Q416.
Q3 results scheduled for 9 November
02 Nov 16
Silver Wheaton’s (SLW’s) Q316 results are scheduled for release after market close on Wednesday 9 November. Our forecasts for Q316 have been adjusted to account for actual precious metals prices that were marginally higher in Q3 than previously predicted (eg US$19.60/oz vs US$19.44/oz Ag and US$1,335/oz vs US$1,333/oz Au), but production that we estimate to have been marginally lower (eg 13,355koz silver equivalent vs 13,657koz).
Going for gold
30 Aug 16
Silver Wheaton’s (SLW’s) Q216 earnings were within 2.5% of our forecast and almost 50% better than the previous quarter (Q116). Performance was buoyed by record gold sales, driven by the continued ramp up at Salobo, a record production performance at Sudbury (which was almost 6,000oz ahead of our expectations), continued outperformance at Antamina (for a third consecutive quarter) and inventory drawdown (for a second consecutive quarter). As a result of increased precious metals’ prices, as well as the purchase of an additional gold stream at Salobo (see below), we have increased our earnings expectations for Q316, Q416 and FY16 by 60.0%, 46.7% and 27.3%, respectively.
Forecasts weighted to H2
25 May 16
After four quarters in which the production of both gold and silver achieved successive new records, output attributable to Silver Wheaton (SLW) moderated in Q116 – albeit to only the second-best ever – with good quarterly performances (again) from Antamina and Salobo offset by headwinds at San Dimas and SLW’s ‘other’ assets. However, sales of material closely approximated production, with the result that inventories decreased by 0.9Moz AgE.
Buying future growth
18 Apr 16
On 30 March, Silver Wheaton (SLW) announced a bought deal whereby a syndicate of underwriters would buy 30,125,000 common shares in the company at a price of US$16.60/share for aggregate gross proceeds of c US$500m plus an over-allotment option of a further 4,518,000 shares at the same price for proceeds of an additional c US$75m. One day later, on 31 March, the deal size was increased by 10% pro rata and it closed on 7 April (at which point SLW also took the opportunity to close its normal course issuer bid). On 11 April, the over-allotment option was exercised in full to bring total aggregate proceeds to US$632.5m. This note updates Edison’s forecasts for FY16 by quarter and valuation in the light of the increased number of shares in issue and decreased forecast net debt.
24 Mar 16
Notwithstanding a maiden contribution from Antamina, a strong performance at Silver Wheaton’s (SLW) gold division was complemented by an equally impressive performance from its silver division, with records set in both the production and sales of precious metals, as each of its cornerstone assets (Salobo, Penasquito, San Dimas and Antamina) performed in tandem. Constancia – which is in the process of ramping up – also performed better than our expectations. As a result, attributable silver-equivalent (AgE) production was 47.7Moz for the full year cf our forecast of 44.8Moz (and guidance of 45.0Moz). Excluding impairments, Q4 was therefore the best quarter of FY15 and SLW’s best since Q314 (when the average silver price was US$18.98/oz).

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.
