Mid-week Tip

Rare Earth into Powerful Markets

Pensana (LSE:PRE) 74p Mkt Cap £176m. The risk profile category is a challenge as it has a licence  to mine in Angola   as well as a working-in-progress  plan to build  the first rare-earth magnet separation facility to be established in over a decade at  Saltend in the Humber. Pansana by teaming up with alloy makers and magnet manufactures is looking to establish a 3,000 tonne per year metal facility to supply the European EV and wind-turbine original equipment manufacturers. This downstream potentially highly profitable facility will make PRE one of only three major producers outside China of these ultra-strong magnets. The business plan published in April 2021 is based on a range of independent studies supporting the assumptions that estimated its (Net Present Value) NPV is $2.3billion (£1.7bn)  as its average annual revenue (based on the first five years is $550m with a 65%  margin this gives a  US$ 359m EBITDA. The other two listed producers are Lynas (ASX:LYC)  and MG Materials (NYSE:MP)  both are valued at $billions each and only produce slightly more than PRE plans to. So as the plan is moved into reality there is plenty of growth and upside. It is perhaps this financial market confusion of where the total $450m funding will come from that but we  are optimistic that this funding will be available from grants, project finance, long term Loans and the pick of willing strategic partners.  Agreements for funding are expected  in months and at this stage is hard to see the company’s value not being a multiple of the current price. The risk here is missing the upside. Buy
