Hydrodec has announced the disposal of its Australian plant and equipment for A$1.7m, after allowing for A$300k decommissioning and transportation costs (A$2m pre-decommissioning costs) to Greenbottle Re-refining UK. While the proceeds are slightly lower than our expectations of US$2m (A$2.9m), we believe the execution of this transaction is welcome to simplify the Group and reduce management distraction to allow focus on the US operations.

Hydrodec has released an encouraging AGM statement this morning with a number of positive developments which should start to crystallise the upside in the shares, notably the sale of the Australian operations and the potential addition of a complimentary product that could drive higher utilisation earlier than previously expected. The utility focus and market developments are also making progress, justifying the Group’s strategy and the Board remains confident in the outlook for 2019 and beyond.
Hydrodec has released full year 2018 results following the pre-close trading update at the end of March. Revenue increased to $14.9m at the Canton facility in the US with an overall Group Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.2m, driven by costs of business reorganisation. The results commentary reinforces Hydrodec’s key strategic objective to deliver substantial increases in feedstock levels available to the Canton facility to support the US focused utility strategy.

We’re just over three months in to 2019 and we’ve seen a 10% UK market rally, retracing much of the Q4 decline, such is the nature of fickle market sentiment. That said, many of the issues we wrote about three months ago that were impacting markets remain: notably Brexit, trade wars, geopolitics and global monetary policy. The 2019 rally thus far feels somewhat fragile, with competing forces of optimism on a potential trade deal which could underpin the rally, against the deterioration in underl

We initiate on Hydrodec with a buy rating and 100p target price. Our view is predicated on the likely sharp increase in EBITDA and cash flow as working capital inflows from the recent capital raise drive improving capacity utilisation and operating leverage. In our view, the shares currently price very limited operational improvements, if any, and although we acknowledge that refining is a technically challenging process, we believe the Group’s expertise is sufficient to manage the increasing ou

Higher metal prices saw CAML achieve a 52% and 131% increase in EBITDA and FCF respectively in the first half of 2021, facilitating an attractive 8p interim dividend declaration (up 2p on H1 2020). The H1 results are tracking our full-year estimates, which if achieved would put CAML on an undemanding EV/EBITDA multiple of just 4x and see the shares yield over 8% at current market price. Given average copper, zinc and lead prices across H2 to date are around 10% higher than our pricing assumption
