Samir Mohamed presented his in-depth investment thesis on Anglo Pacific Group (UK: APF) at Best Ideas 2021.
Anglo Pacific Group is a commodity royalty company. For example, the company might help finance a copper mine and in return receive a royalty on the revenue of the mine as long as the mine produces copper.
Due to ESG, many banks and institutional investors are reducing their exposure to mine financings. This reduction in competition should enable APF to achieve better financial terms in royalty deals.
Since 2014 the average annual yield on royalty deals was at least 10% while remaining mine life was typically 15-25 years. Iron ore, coking coal, thermal coal, copper, nickel, and uranium – the most important commodities for the company – have seen prices recover sharply from lows in spring-summer 2020.
If commodity prices average levels of 2019 in 2021 the company trades at a free cash flow yield above 20% or an EV/EBIT below 6x. From a sum-of-the-parts perspective, the company owns stakes in two listed companies, which are worth almost 40% of enterprise value.
