Hello Everyone,

This is my first post and I spent some time doing research on this company that's listed on the Canadian Venture exchange. Their assets are in South Africa and they refine the highest quality coal used for making steel. This has been in the news lately as it's gone up to record prices in terms of the commodity price and perhaps it's a good time to get in? Let me know what you think. Below is information from www.sedar.com which is the legal site where all financial and company information must be posted to.

MD&A Highlights

After an extremely positive and profitable first two quarters to the financial year, Q3 reflects an expected short-term period of depressed Sales, and subsequent reduction in earnings. Despite Sales reducing significantly for the period, the Corporation remained profitable, again demonstrating its resilience in difficult trading conditions. Sales are expected to increase slightly for Q4 and Q1, 2018.

Revenue for the 9-month period increased to $8,443,667 in comparison to $2,907,198 for the same period last fiscal year. The Corporation recorded a net income of $595,716 (C$741,080), in comparison to a net loss of $335,864 for the same period the previous year. Adjusted EBITDA rose to $881,885 (C$1,097,080) for the period.

The Corporation continues to understand that for Southern Coal to reach its full potential, its customer bases needs to increase so to reduce its reliability on key suppliers. Southern Coal is continuing to work with a new potential major customer to supply product in South Africa and remains hopeful for trial loads to be dispatched in Q1 or Q2 2018.

The board believes that it is in the interest of the Corporation, and its shareholders, that Southern Coal (Pty) Ltd., achieves a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment, (“B-BBEE), Level 4 rating during the fiscal year 2018. During the quarter the Corporation can confirm that it has had discussions with its customers over the need for Southern Coal to improve its current B-BBEE rating so to remain compliant with its customers own supplier requirements. During the coming three months, the Corporation expects to announce the details of a deal that is currently being negotiated and finalized by specialists. All in all, the board is of the belief that the final deal that will be agreed will be one that will ensure sustainability and offer growth opportunity for the South African business.

The Corporation intends to continue to generate positive free cash flow during the fiscal year-end 2017 and will focus on increasing shareholders’ value, as well as investment to improve the efficiency of its older facilities, or investment into related business opportunities in South Africa

The Corporation has an agreement to lease premises for its coal processing plant in South Africa for a term of ten years, expiring on December 31, 2020. The agreement offers the Corporation, in lieu of rent, feedstock coal to be delivered to its adjacent premises, which it purchases at market price. Should the Corporation decide to purchase feedstock coal from an alternative supplier which the lessor is otherwise able to provide, then a monthly rent of Rand 200,000 ($14,846) is payable. To date, the Corporation has not been required to pay any rent for the premises as it has continued to purchase feedstock coal from the landlord.

The bank loan bears interest at 9.25% per annum, matures on January 7, 2019, and is secured by the Corporation’s furnace acquired with the proceeds from the loan. The bank loan is repayable over 42 months in blended monthly payments of Rand 393,779 ($29,230 translated at October 31, 2016 exchange rate). During the period ended July 31, 2017, the Corporation incurred interest expense totaling $42,420 (October 31, 2017 – $71,721).

In August 2006, Canaf, then known as Uganda Gold Mining, announced the termination of any further investment into its Kilembe Copper-Cobalt Project in Uganda. Since 2007, the Corporation has been involved in a legal dispute with Kilembe Mines Limited, (“KML”). In January 2013, the High Court of Uganda referred the case back to arbitration for settlement. On May 29, 2013, a preliminary meeting was held between the Corporation, KML and the arbitrator. The Corporation can confirm that further meetings were scheduled for August 2013, after filings of amended statements of defence and claims had been submitted. Since the initial meeting however the Government has awarded a deal to a Chinese Consortium to manage and operate KML. The Corporation’s appointed Ugandan Advocates have notified the board that the Arbitrator has stepped down for personal reasons. The Corporation’s Uganda Advocates and the Government’s Solicitor General have agreed to a new Arbitrator, Retired Justice James Ogoola. The parties held a preliminary meeting with the Arbitrator who requested them to provide him with their fee estimate for the conduct of the Arbitration. The estimate has since been provided to the Arbitrator who is yet to confirm whether or not he is agreeable to it. In the meantime the Corporation appointed SRK Consultants to prepare a brief document to quantify the ‘lost opportunity’ value of the termination of the Kilembe Project. During the current financial year the Corporation will utilize this document to assist in the submission of a revised claim against KML. The Corporation has received no new information since 2014, and the Corporation remains unable to give an indication of either the quantum or any likely date by which a settlement will or will not be reached. The original claim, before costs, is for a money sum of US$10,370,368 as at January 24, 2007.

StockHound started this thread From CAF's website:

Canaf Group owns 100 percent of Quantum Screening and Crushing (Proprietary) Limited, ("Quantum"), a private South African company that focuses on anthracite beneficiation.

Quantum produces calcined anthracite, a product used primarily as a substitute to coke in the manufacturing process of steel and manganese. The company's two largest clients are world leaders in steel and ferromanganese production, namely ArcelorMittal and BHP Billiton respectively. Quantum has an operation near Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal, where its two kilns operate, de-volatising the raw material anthracite, known as calcining. The majority of Quantum's feedstock anthracite is supplied by the neighbouring Springlake Colliery, which has reserves in excess of 20 years.

Calcining is a process whereby anthracite coal is fed through a rotary kiln, at temperatures between 850 and 1100 degrees centigrade; the volatiles are burnt off and the effective carbon content increased. The final product, referred to as 'calcined anthracite' is used as a coke substitute. Calcined anthracite is used as a reductant in the manufacture of steel and manganese, as well as other sintering processes. Quantum, through its wholly owned subsidiary Southern Coal (Proprietary) Limited, ("Southern Coal") has been profitably carrying on this business since 2004.

Location and Plant

Quantum is situated in Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The majority of the feedstock anthracite is supplied by Springlake Colliery which has reserves in excess of 20 years, whose coal siding is strategically located adjacent to Quantum's facility.

Quantum runs two independent lines of production which each consist of pre-heating stage feeding a main rotary kiln. The raw material, anthracite is feed into an electrically heated rotary pre-heater, which raises the temperature of the product to about 800 degrees C. The pre-heated (and red hot) anthracite is then fed into the main, refractory lined, rotary kiln. It is at this stage of the process that extra raw material is added to the main kiln. The temperature of the main kiln is then controlled to remain above 1000 degrees C so that calcination of the anthracite occurs and maximum amount of volatile matter is burnt off.

The final stage of the process involves the oxidization of any excess volatiles in the after-burners/oxidizers, before emission to the atmosphere.

Screening and Crushing Plants

Since the Company acquired Quantum in 2007, significant investment has been made in crushing and screening equipment. Quantum now has the ability to offer existing and potential customers a range of size productsm which subsequently opens up other markets.

Quantum has 2 independent screening plants, which are capable to dry screen down to sizes as small as 6mm.

Profitability, Performance and Expansion Program

Quantum Screening and Crushing has been operating profitably since the Company acquired it in 2007.

Quantum Screening and Crushing has built up a fine reputation for product quality and reliability of supply, which has earned the respect and preference from two of the major steel and manganese producers in the world. Canaf believes that as long as Quantum maintains its focus on its core values, coupled with the ever-increasing demand of calcined anthracite as a replacement to coke in the reductant market, that the business will continue to expand and potentially become one of the major reductants and low volatile reductant suppliers on the continent.

StockHound started this thread Here are three important factors that will significantly increase the value of CAF:

1) Sales. As reported in their last MD&A, sales are lower than usual apparently, but prices are much higher. However, the next quarters coming up will show increased sales. From the MD&A:

For the 9-month period ended July 31, 2017, the Corporation reported a net income of $595,716 (C$741,080) compared to a net loss of $315,919 for same period the previous year. The increase in net income was directly related to an increase in sales during the period, as well as improved profit margins generated from efficiencies generated from Quantum s new calcining facility, which only started fully operating in August 2016. Revenue increased to $8,443,667, in comparison to $2,907,198, for the same period last year. The significant increase in sales is due to a combination of unusually low sales during the last fiscal period combined with increased prices per sales unit. The Corporation expects to report a slight increase in Sales during Q4 and expects fiscal year end 2018 to reflect increased demand as the Corporation hopes to bring on a new customer.

2) Price of Anthracite(coking coal) for steel manufacturing. This is important as increased sales and higher commodity prices go hand and hand. From the chart below, coking coal is near multi year high's. Problem with the chart is it's general coking coal pricing and not showing the premium CAF gets for it's Anthracite coal, which is rarer and more valuable.

https://ca.investing.com/commodities...g-coal-futures


3) Rand/USD/CAD Exchange rate. There are many public companies that have good sales, but the exchange rate can either make of break them. In our case, the Rand is getting stronger as a new pro business leader is sworn in and Jacob Zuma leaves. But not only that, the CAD is getting weaker at the same time. This means that once Canaf converts their Rand into USD, then it must be converted into CAD to reflect it's proper value on the TSX Venture, thus giving us an additional premium. The rand is still near a 2 year high versus the USD.

Remember, the stronger the Rand, the more CAF profits convert into USD. Plus the new leadership is pro business and will make the economy stronger.

CAF made $190K net income in Q4 except there was a $244K tax expense for the year, plus $40K bank loan interest. On top of that, CAF was able to pay $300K of the $400K bank loan they had. This was used to buy new equipment in 2014. Impressive that they were able to put down $540K US and pay off $1.15 of the $1.25 million USD borrow(with interest) and not diluting the stock by raising funds. Plus keep in mind that 2015-2016 were not very good years either. This stock deserves much more credit.

November 18, 2014, Vancouver, British Columbia - Canaf Group Inc. (TSXV: CAF) ("Canaf") the Canadaregistered mining group, is pleased to announce agreed terms for the acquisition of a new processing plant worth R20 million (South African Rand) for its South African owned coal beneficiating operation, Quantum Screening and Crushing (Pty) Ltd., (“Quantum”). The new anthracite beneficiating facility, (“Calciner 3”) will be installed and commissioned at its operation near Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Calciner 3 is being purchased from a South African company specialising in furnace technologies. In May 2014 Quantum ran a successful trial of material through Calciner 3, and as a result Quantum signed a deal earlier this month to acquire the asset, subject to financing. Payment terms for the Acquisition and Loan Facility The value of the acquisition is R20 million (approximately US$1.8million). During November 2014, the Company paid a deposit of R6 million (approximately US$0.54million) from cash and working capital. The balance of the acquisition will be paid by a loan facility of R14million (approximately US$1.25million), which will be provided in payments as and when Quantum requires it, and borrowed over a period of 48 months, however it is the intention of the Company to pay down the loan within 24 months. The loan facility will be provided by Quantum’s existing bank, ABSA Business Bank, South Africa. In addition to the payments for the acquisition, the Company expects to invest approximately R2 million (US$0.18million) in civil and electrical infrastructure for the new facility; this investment will come from working capital. Motivation for New Calciner 3 The purchase of Calciner 3 is not only due to an expected increase in demand for Quantum’s product looking forward to 2015, but the new plant will also be environmentally compliant and significantly more efficient. Increased demand is expected to come from the newly refurbished ArcelorMittal Newcastle steel facility as well as an expected new contract during the course of 2015. Calciner 3 will produce the same product as Quantum’s existing two plants, however, the design is far more environmentally beneficial and does not use electricity as its source of heat. This new, autogenous (selfsustaining) calciner will offer the following benefits to the Company, which include: 1. Reduction of electricity consumption by 95% for each tonne of calcine product produced. 2. Increase of current capacity of Quantum by up to 60%. 3. Significant environmental improvements compared to Quantum’s existing calciners. The Company plans to commission the new facility, Calciner 3, in May 2015. Subsequent to this, the Company plans to then convert Quantum’s existing two calciners to a similar design as Calciner 3; this will be scheduled in a way that will safeguard sales to existing customers and is expected to commence during the fiscal year 2015- 2016.

MD&A Highlights

OVERALL PERFORMANCE AND OUTLOOK

The outlook and profitability for the coming year remains strong and the Corporation expects to continue to generate positive free cash flow during the fiscal year-end 2018 and, as it accumulates cash and reduces its gearing and increases its efficiencies, will continue to look at investment in related business opportunities in South Africa; a country which many now regard as one with a very positive outlook for 2018 following its recent change of President.

The fiscal year ended 31 October 2017 saw the Corporation recover from significantly reduced sales between mid-2015 to mid-2016, when depressed global commodity prices affected the Corporation’s customers negatively, which was reflected in one customer closing down for 7 months of the year and another reducing demand by 50%

Revenue for the year ended October 31, 2017 was $10,669,117 (2016 $4,703,528) a $5,965,589 127% increase, and the Corporation returned to profitability with net comprehensive income for year ended October 31, 2017 of $439,664 (2016 net comprehensive loss $162,065) a $601,729 favourable variance. The results reflect the previously reported turnaround from increased demand with sales remaining strong.

During 2016, the Corporation commissioned a new, and more efficient, calcining facility, which began to produce saleable product during Q2, 2016. The new facility reduced operating costs and improved margins and profits as demand also increased. Management believes it is in a stronger position with Quantum being one of a few suppliers of a low volatile reductant, a situation, which has allowed the Corporation to emerge as a dominant player in South Africa

Operations generated $587,509 in cash during the year ended October 31, 2017 (2016 used $11,722) as the Corporation recovered from 8 months of depressed sales and demand for their product, which started in Q3, 2015.

The bank loan bears interest at 10.25% per annum, matures on January 7, 2019, and is secured by the Company’s furnace acquired with the proceeds from the loan. The bank loan is repayable in blended monthly payments of Rand 391,624 ($27,690 translated at October 31, 2017 exchange rate). During the year ended October 31, 2017, the Company incurred interest expense totaling $86,837 (2016 – $71,721).

UPDATE ON UGANDAN CLAIM AGAINST KILEMBE MINES LIMITED

In August 2006, Canaf, then known as Uganda Gold Mining, announced the termination of any further investment into its Kilembe Copper-Cobalt Project in Uganda. Since 2007, the Corporation has been engaged in an Arbitration with Kilembe Mines Limited, (“KML”), whereby the Corporation seeks general damages, special damages and costs of the Arbitration from KML for breach of contract.

The legal work, carried out my MMAKS Advocates, Kampala, against KML is at no cost to the Corporation, but any award in favor of the Corporation will be distributed to both MMAKS and Canaf. Despite the fact that the claim against KML Corporation remains active, the Corporation is unable to give an indication of either the quantum or any likely date by which the Arbitration will be concluded.

Management Discussion Highlights

Net revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 were $10,174,943, an increase of $1,944,969 compared to the same period in the prior year. Table games revenue increased by approximately $1,381,000 as a result of gaming dollars dropped being 21.1% higher than the same period last year, and the hold percentage was up slightly by .1%. Poker revenue increased by approximately $456,000 as a result of making the Palace Lakewood all poker tables effective February 1, 2018. Operating expenses were $8,245,859 in the quarter ended March 31, 2018 compared to $7,620,589 in the prior year quarter. Labor and benefits expenses decreased slightly by approximately $11,000. This decrease was primarily due to the closure of the Palace Tukwila that took place on February 4, 2017. The decrease was offset by the increase in the minimum wage that went from $11.00 to $11.50 effective January 1, 2018. Marketing and administrative increased approximately $356,000 which was primarily due to marketing expenses increasing approximately $420,000 offset by a decrease in management fees of $75,000. The increase in marketing expenses consisted of $207,000 at the Palace Lakewood and $213,000 at the other locations. The Palace Lakewood increase was the result of promoting the location as an all poker facility. The management expenses decreased as the result of terminating the management agreement with Michels Management Services effective December 31, 2017. Gaming taxes and license expenses increased approximately $215,000 as a result of the increased gaming revenue.
The Company’s cash at March 31, 2018 was $11,758,629, compared to $10,043,965 at December 31, 2017. These amounts include “Restricted Cash” balances of $3,326,656 and $2,975,946 respectively. “Restricted Cash” balances are jackpot funds held for prizes being offered at the casinos.

Management Discussion Highlights From Q1 2018

OVERALL PERFORMANCE AND OUTLOOK

The results above shows the sale recovery and demand of the Corporation’s product which started in Q3, 2016. Sales for the three month period ended January 31, 2018 increased by 45% in comparison to the previous quarter and is expected to increase by a further 40% in Q2, as more confidence returns to the markets. (Page 5)

The outlook and profitability of the Corporation remains strong and the Corporation expects to continue to generate positive free cash flow during the fiscal year-end 2018 and, as it accumulates cash and reduces its gearing and increases its efficiencies, will continue to look at investment in related business opportunities in South Africa, a country which many now regard with a very positive outlook

The three month period ended 31 January 2018 saw the Corporation continue to recover from significantly reduced sales between mid-2015 to mid-2016, when depressed global commodity prices affected the Corporation’s customers negatively.

Revenue for the three month period was $3,273,213 (2017 - $2,991,706) a $281,507, 9% increase, and the Corporation returned to profitability with net comprehensive income for three month period ended January 31, 2018 of $552,815 (2017 - $198,221) a $354,594, 179% favourable variance. The results reflect the previously reported turnaround from increased demand with sales remaining strong.

During the quarter, Southern Coal experienced a further increase in demand from its customers, in comparison to that of Q4, 2017 and the Corporation can confirm that Q2, 2018 will reflect a further increase to Southern Coal’s maximum capacity.

The Corporation also remains focused on completing a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) transaction for Southern Coal, by mid-June 2018. The B-BBEE is a form of economic empowerment initiated by the South African government with the goal to distribute wealth across as broad a spectrum of previously disadvantaged South African society as possible. A new partner has been identified and initial terms of the agreement, which will remain much the same as the previously agreed transaction, will most probably be announced by the end of April 2018. The Corporation remains confident that it will achieve its B-BBEE goals during the current fiscal year and we remain optimistic of the opportunities that will arise from such a transaction.

The Corporation reported net income o f $187,126 (2017 - $197,691) a $10,565 unfavourable variance of over the previous period. The reduction in GM and profit are due to increased feedstock costs in Q1 and a one month delay in the corresponding sale price increase, a general increase in maintenance cost and investment into B-BBEE training projects in Q1 which represent approximately 75% of the projected annual spend for B-BBEE

The Corporation has an agreement to lease premises for its coal processing plant in South Africa for a term of ten years, expiring on December 31, 2020. The agreement offers the Corporation, in lieu of rent, feedstock coal to be delivered to its adjacent premises, which it purchases at market price. Should the Corporation decide to purchase feedstock coal from an alternative supplier which the lessor is otherwise able to provide, then a monthly rent of Rand 200,000 ($16,819) is payable. To date, the Corporation has not been required to pay any rent for the premises as it has continued to purchase feedstock coal from the landlord.

The bank loan bears interest at 10.25% per annum, matures on January 7, 2019, and is secured by the Company’s furnace acquired with the proceeds from the loan. The bank loan is repayable in blended monthly payments of Rand 391,624 ($32,934 translated at January 31, 2018 exchange rate)). During the three month period ended January 31, 2018, the Company incurred interest expense totaling $Nil (January 31, 2017 – $15,322).

MD&A Highlights

Operations

Central African Republic – Passendro Gold Project

The Company’s primary asset is the Passendro gold project, which is situated in the centre of a 25-year Mining License (355 sq km) that was awarded to AXMIN in August 2010. At the same time, the Company was also awarded two, three-year renewable Exploration Licenses, Bambari 1 and 2 (1,240 sq km), which ring fence the Mining License and cover a 90 km strike along the highly prospective Bambari greenstone belt.

November 28, 2016, the Minister of Mines, Energy and Hydraulics of the CAR issued the Ministerial Order No 246/16/MMEH/DIRCAB/DGMD, giving an Exemption Certificate of one (1) year for exploration and research of the primary layer of gold and others related to substances of Licenses of BAMBARI 1 and 2 to Aurafrique SARL, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The period of the Exemption is valid within duration of one year from November 28, 2016 to November 27, 2017. In 2016, the Company incurred $1,000,000 for the extension of the licenses of BAMBARI 1 and 2, which is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in consolidated statements of financial position as of December 31, 2016.

On March 26, 2018, the Minister of Mining and Geology issued an executive order No 032/18/MMG/DIRCAB/DGM to grant Aurafrique SARL an extension period of exemption from exploration and research for one (1) year, running from March 22, 2018 to March 21, 2019.

The Company through its in-country staff have maintained close communications with senior ministers and officials in Bangui and also in Bambari which is the closest city to the Company’s asset near Ndassima. AXMIN’s country manager Mr Boubacar Sidbe recently meet with the Vice Mayor of Bambari and Sub-prefect to discuss the situation on the ground and express the Company’s desire to get back on site. Meetings have also been held with the Mining Minister and Chief of the Office of the Head of State. AXMIN remains confident that stability will eventually return to the country and that the Company will be well positioned and ready to work with the elected government of the CAR to develop a pragmatic mining plan focusing on the extremely high-grade deposits that will be safe for our employees and contractors, have limited capital expenditure and hopefully achieve very profitable returns in a very timely fashion for shareholders.

As of the date of this report, operations at Passendro remain suspended and although the Company continues to maintain a presence in the CAR (through its administrative office and permanently stationed employees in Bangui) and relationship with the State in the CAR, the Company is unable to predict when it will be able to resume its operations at Passendro for the foreseeable future, if at all. As a result, impairment in the amount of $37,346,576 was recognized at December 31, 2013 on exploration and evaluation (“E&E”) assets for the Bambari properties to reflect the decrease in their recoverable value as of result of the current unstable situation in CAR. As at December 31, 2017, given that impairment was recognized and the unstable condition remains the same, the residual value of E&E assets for the Passendro gold project was written down to $nil in 2016.

This impairment recognized in the financial statements does not in any way mean that the Company is relinquishing its rights to the assets and it reflects the utmost conservative view by management on the objective circumstances and will be reviewed annually and subject to recovery when certain conditions are met pursuant to the accounting standards the Company has adopted.

Senegal Joint Venture

With regarding of Axmin owned 20% interest in the Sounkouko and Heremokono explorations permits, on June 18, 2015, in addition to its royalty interest of 1.5% NSR in the Gora Target Area, AXMIN has elected to convert its 20% interests in another 15 Target Areas into a 1.5% NSR from each Target Area. On January 12, 2016, AXMIN elected to convert its 20% interest in one new Target area into a 1.5% NSR. After these Royalty Elections, AXMIN holds a 1.5% NSR on 17 Royalty Target Areas (being Target Areas have been made Royalty Election on) in total and maintains 20% interests of Remainder Areas within the Senegal permits. Axmin’s royalty rights are intended to continue and survive the Joint Venture Agreement and remain tied to the permits themselves, irrespective of title holder.

Since August 2015, Axmin Inc. started to generate the 1.5-per-cent net-smelter-return royalty’s income from the Gora deposit. The total royalty income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $1,585,578 (for the year ended December 31, 2016 - $980,380). The royalty is applied to the production of gold from the Gora deposit, located in the Senegal Republic. The Gora deposit is operated by Axmin's joint venture partner, Sabodala Mining Company SARL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Teranga Gold Corp.

In February 2012, AXMIN elected to hold a 1.5% NSR royalty interest in the Gora deposit. Since August 2015, Axmin Inc. started to generate the 1.5-per-cent net-smelter-return royalty’s income from the Gora deposit.

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company reported royalty income of $1,585,578 from Gora Projects, compared with $980,380 for the same time period of 2016.

Readers are advised that the information about the Gora project contained in this MD&A is based on information publicly disclosed by Teranga and has not been independently verified by the Company. Specifically, as a royalty holder, the Company has limited, if any, access to the Gora project and is dependent on the operator of the property and its qualified persons to provide information to the Company regarding the project or on publicly available information and the Company generally has limited or no ability to independently verify such information.

Results of Financial

For the year ended December 31, 2017, Axmin reported royalty income of $1,585,578 from Gora Projects, compared with $980,380 for the same time period of 2016.

The net income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $1,230,930 compared to an $246,758 net loss in the same period of 2016, an increase in the net income of $1,477,688. The increase in net income was mainly due to:

Increased in royalty income of $605,198 from $980,380 in 2016 to $1,585,578 in 2017.

Decreased in expenses of $922,115 in the year ended December 31, 2017 from $1,310,383 in the year of 2016 to $388,268 in the same period of 2017. The decrease in expenses was primarily due to a $1,003,274 decrease in project costs due to the $1,000,000 consulting fee incurred in 2016 for the extension of Exploration Licenses of BAMBARI 1 and 2 and the extension of exemption from the development work and productions of the Passendro gold, which was not incurred in the year of 2017. The decrease in expenses was also due to $11,410 decrease in consulting fees, offset by a $14,283 increase in salary and wages, a $69,658 increase in share-based compensation, and a $9,078 increase in travel expenses. Offset by:

Decreased in other income of $49,625 from $83,245 in 2016 to $33,620 in 2017.

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company incurred an income of $437,814 from continuing operations compared with a loss of $841,007 from continuing operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, an increase in the net income of $1,278,821. The increase in net income during the quarter ended December 31, 2017 was mainly due to the followings:

Increased in royalty income of $489,441 from $125,282 in 2016 to $614,723 in 2017.

Decreased in expenses of $957,219 in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with the same period of 2016. The decrease in expenses was primarily due to the $1,000,000 in project costs related to consulting fee for the extension of Licences of BAMBARI 1 and 2 incurred in 2016, which was not incurred in the same fiscal year of 2017. The decrease in other income was primarily due to the decrease in loss on foreign exchange.

2018-05-07 11:33 MT - News Release


Ms. Lucy Yan reports

CHAIRMAN PROVIDES AXMIN'S YEAR END 2017 FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL RESULTS

Axmin Inc. has released highlights from its audited annual financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, which have been filed on SEDAR (amounts are in U.S. dollars).

2017 highlights

Financial:

Revenue of $1.6-million (2016: $1-million);
Net income of $1.2-million (2016: loss of $250,000);
Cash balance of $1.1-million (2016: $400,000).
Operational:

Revenue from the company's net smelter return (NSR) royalty with Teranga Gold Corp. for the Gora deposit has grown from $1-million in 2016 to $1.6-million in 2017. For the avoidance of doubt, at the moment, only the Gora deposit contributed the NSR royalty revenue of $1.6-million for the year 2017 to Axmin.
Axmin staff are in discussions with Teranga regarding progress on developing other properties in which Axmin has an interest.
Axmin holds an additional 16 target areas in conjunction with Teranga subject to future development with no further capital participation contribution required from Axmin.
Central African Republic (CAR):

Axmin is delighted to confirm that, on March 26, 2018, the Minister of Mining and Geology in the CAR issued an executive order No. 073/18/MMG/DIRCAB/DGM to grant Somio Toungou an extension of the period of exemption from development and exploration under the mining licence for one year, running from March 22, 2018, to March 21, 2019, relating to the Passendro gold project.
By the executive order, Aurafrique also was granted a one-year extension, running from March 22, 2018, to March 21, 2019, of an exemption from exploration and research work on the Bambari 1 and 2 exploration permits.
The situation in the CAR remains difficult, but Axmin's in-country representative, Boubacar Sidibe, has recently visited Bambari and has met with the district commissioner, Prefect of Ouaka, the Vice-Mayor of Bambari, head of MINUSCA at Bakala and representatives of the illegal miners who were at one time active on the Passendro gold project site. Axmin is maintaining excellent relations at the regional level as well as at the central government level.
Axmin regrets the instability that has plagued the CAR but is confident that stability will return under the stewardship of the current government and looks forward to working with all stakeholders to develop a safe, rapid and profitable mining operation on the company's mineral properties in the CAR.
Commenting on the 2017 annual results, Lucy Yan, Axmin's chairman, said: "During the past year of my tenure as chairman, we are starting to see some positive developments in the CAR. We believe that the duly elected government working with MINUSCA will in time bring stability to the country and specifically to the region around Ndassima, where our main asset is located. We have been in close communication with the senior ministers and officials of the governments both in Bangui and locally in Bambari and look forward to the time when we can reclaim the site to become operational again."

The counsellor to the CAR president for disarmament, demobilization, reinsertion and repatriation (DDRR), Colonel Noel Bienvenu Selesson, wrote to Axmin: "We thank you not only for the efforts made by your company but also for the reaffirmation of its commitment and its determination to go to the operation. The DDRR process is evolving. After the successful completion of the DDRR/RSS pilot project that ended on Dec. 19, 2017, we are very actively preparing for the launch of the large DDRR. The provisions in this framework, will allow your company to resume fairly quickly all its activities in the area as well as in the rest of the country."

The CAR Minister of Mining and Geology, Leopold Mboli Fatrane, also wrote to Axmin: "... the Ndassima mine is one of the main projects on which the government is setting out to revive the national economy. To this end, the government and the Integrated Multidimensional Stabilization Mission of the United Nations in Central African Republic (MINUSCA) have already undertaken the restoration of the authority of the State in the Ouaka and its surroundings."

David Weill, lead independent director of Axmin, commented: "Management has done a superb job during this time of adversity to firstly secure the financial situation of the company by strictly controlling costs and secondly develop the royalty revenue streams for the benefit of all shareholders. Management has also maintained an excellent relationship and ongoing dialogue with the government of the CAR so that, when the company regains access to and control over the mining site, the company may rapidly implement a pragmatic mining plan focusing on developing the extremely high-grade deposits that will provide operational security for our employees and contractors, require limited capital expenditures from the company, and hopefully achieve very profitable returns in a very timely fashion for our shareholders."

This press release should be read in conjunction with the company's audited annual financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, together with its management discussion and analysis for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, both of which are available from the company's website and on SEDAR.

Looks as if this fund has started accumulating Axmin Inc. shares. The cutoff was March 31st 2018 for Q1, but their Q2 should be out sometime this summer. Doesn't make sense for a fund with $550 million USD to only pick up 240,000 shares of a small cap. Their other holdings are between $100K to $20 million each, so I suspect more will be purchased. Keep in mind that AXM insiders currently own 85 of the 130.5 million common shares.
