Tharisa – mispriced following minority purchase out, very low threat alternative. – Deep Worth Investments Weblog

I consider yesterday’s RNS launched by Tharisa. They’re shopping for out BEE minorities stake within the South African Mine for $26.5m by issuing 13 903 743 new shares. I wrote them up right here (when the Rhodium value was a lot larger). I feel the share value isn’t reflecting the quantity of worth they’ve obtained from this transaction.

BEE stands for Black Financial Empowerment – in essence, blacks get richer by transactions depriving non blacks of their cash/property (a harsh eplanation – extra balanced one is right here). I perceive the place they’re coming from however finally it’s not in my monetary curiosity.

I consider that is an absolulte discount. The Tharisa Minerals minority final yr earnt $38.5m – so in essence it’s being purchased for a yr and a bit’s earnings – this relies significantly in your expectation of subsequent yr’s earnings. I’m going to make use of final yr’s to simplify this as I consider it hasn’t been totally understood by the market or mirrored within the share value.

Sp 38.5m in 2021 went to the minorities. (p103 2021 annual report right here)

Subsequent we go on to the impact on earnings per share (p117).

So with the 13.9m new shares we get 269,458,000+13,903,743 so 283,361,743.

Earnings go up from $100.469m to $131.541m – so headline EPS goes up from 38.3c to 46.4c – a 21% improve

On announcement of this information yesterday the share value rose from 136.5 to 145 now (@13.26 17/2/2022) – this can be a c6.2% rise.

There isn’t a logic I’m conscious of for this restricted value transfer. Some on ADVFN recommend that is only a proposed transaction however the RNS says the settlement is concluded. There are circumstances on the belief however that is solely 6% of the holding or 3.2m shares.

I feel that is an occasion the place a mid-day RNS was misinterpret / not totally thought by way of – creating a chance for the sharp. I’ve purchased extra – Tharisa is now my largest place – an 8% weight. I intend to promote as soon as the worth rises to mirror the excellent news.

It isn’t like the corporate is pricey, it’s on a ahead PE of about 4, with wholesome margins at present PGM costs. They doubtless have $80m money out there with no internet debt. The present Rhodium value is just not the place it was this time final yr – c 25000 however remains to be wholesome. There could also be scope for the rhodium value to rise – it’s utilized in catalytic converters and because of chip shortages manufacturing is down. These are anticipated to ease in 2022/2023 . They’re additionally guiding extra manufacturing in 2022.

I’d recommend if you’re fascinated about doing this you leap on ASAP – these kinds of alternatives don’t dangle round for lengthy.

One final word (don’t normally do that) – am attempting to boost cash to purchase a defibrillator for the fitness center I’m going to (extra . Donations could be appreciated… Suppose how a lot cash (a few of you) make from my concepts and the way a lot you’ll miss them if I died because of overexertion / lack of a defibrillator🤣.
