- Largo Resources agreed with its lenders to extend the grace period of the loan.
- This will allow the company to have more financial flexibility during the ramp up phase of the Maracas project.
- This solves the only 'problem' I had with Largo Resources, and I now expect a relatively smooth ramp up period.
- Largo Resources has achieved first production identified as a near-term catalyst in our recent article.
- Bullish case strengthened as company moves into ramp-up.
- Nameplate production expected within a year.
- A growing supply deficit will drive vanadium prices higher in coming years.
- Commissioning at Largo Resources' world-class Maracas vanadium mine has been completed and production is imminent.
- The market has only just started to appreciate the quality of the asset, and the outstanding execution of Largo bringing the mine into production.
- We estimate 150% upside if past performance can be maintained throughout ramp-up.
- Largo's share price has increased 27% since my last article, as the company continues to make progress at Maracas.
- Commissioning of the facility has been completed, and Largo Resources is on track to reach the commercial production stage in the second half of this year.
- The vanadium price remains strong, which made me revise my expectations upwards. Additionally, as the project is getting de-risked, I thought a lower discount rate is appropriate.
- Almost 90% of the world supply of vanadium comes from three relatively unreliable countries (Russia, China, South Africa), and I strongly believe Largo could obtain an important position.
- Even after the 27% share price increase, the company seems to be undervalued based on the Maracas project. Additionally, you get exposure to the second project (tungsten-molybdenum) for free.
