Pan American’s Q3 results did not bring any major surprises at the group level, with lower EBITDA of US$159m, down 22% q-o-q, mainly a result of the continuing underperformance of La Colorada and lower-than-expected gold grades at El Penon. Yet the company reported flat (quarter-on-quarter) net operating cash flow of US$115m and broadly reiterated its FY23 operating guidance. We have revised downwards our near-term earnings estimates on the back of the results. However, our valuation has increas

Pan American Silver (PAAS) reported a significant increase in mineral reserves and resources estimates, for gold in particular, on the back of the Yamana transaction. Inclusive of MARA, Morococha and Jeronimo, the company’s total proven and probable (P&P) reserves grew 12% y-o-y to 577Moz of contained silver (Ag) and 259% to 13Moz of contained gold (Au).

Escobal continues to advance through the ILO 169 consultation process, with completion of Phase 2 expected by the
Pan American Silver (PAAS) announced divestment of a number of non-core assets, including MARA and Morococha. The sale is in line with the company’s intention to optimise its project portfolio following the acquisition of Yamana’s Latin American assets earlier this year. It will generate combined cash proceeds of US$593m, plus net smelter return (NSR) royalties, resulting in a stronger balance sheet as well as a significant reduction in care and maintenance (C&M) costs. We will update our estima
What you need to know:
• The precious metals and base metals markets were down in the month of May, however, we view this as a healthy pull-back following two strong months in March and April.
• M&A remained elevated in the month following what appears to be the peaking of rates and inflation, and persistent elevated metals prices.
• With inflation remaining sticky, we believe investors have begun turning to safe-haven assets like gold and silver.

Pan American Silver (PAAS) completed the Yamana transaction at the end of March, continuing its track record of timely and value-accretive acquisitions that add scale and improve profitability. With the full annualised contribution from the Yamana assets, we estimate PAAS will produce c 25Moz of silver and 1.1Moz of gold in FY24. The anticipated launch of Escobal (FY25e) could further increase silver production to above 40Moz, bringing PAAS closer to the industry leader, Fresnillo. In this note

What you need to know:

Weaker commodity prices and unabating cost pressures continued to supress Pan American Silver’s (PAAS’s) performance in Q322. However, at the top line, these were largely offset by higher gold sales, while lower inventory adjustments and other operating costs resulted in a 90% q-o-q boost in EBITDA. That said, the Q3 results were clearly overshadowed by PAAS’s joint bid to acquire Yamana Gold for c US$4.8bn. Contingent on shareholder approvals, the deal will be transformational for PAAS, adding

Last week, JOG successfully secured its second GBA farmout, locking in a path to delivering zero-capex barrels. The surprisingly muted share price response to the farm-out leaves JOG trading at an unjustifiably large discount to our valuation. With a material fully funded development project under its belt and a clean balance sheet, JOG presents a very low-cost way to access high quality development barrels for investors and potential acquirers alike.
