Anglo Pacific Group Plc Value Analysis 2021 (LSE:APF)
Anglo Pacific Group is a mining finance group listed on the London Stock Exchange. Anglo Pacific makes money by providing capital to mining companies in return for an income stream when the mine starts selling product. For a full description of the various financing arrangements we recommend investors look at page 7 of the 2020 Annual Report, which can be found here.
The Annual Report for 2020 actually reported a loss for APF. However, the loss relates to the impairment of coal assets in Australia. The impairment does not impact underlaying profits and APF was profitable on an underlying basis in 2020.
Just after the year endear 2020, APF completed a big royalty purchase from the Brasilian miner Vale. APF bought 22.82% of total cobalt produced for $205 million plus ongoing payments of 18% of the cobalt price. There are other terms and a good summary is in the latest investor presentation, which can be found here. The most important point about the Voisey’s Bay cobalt royalty is that it will add to earnings immediately even after taking into account of the costs of buying the royalty.
