CAF.V - Canaf Group Inc. (Thoughts On This Play)

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.

Canaf's South African subsidiary agrees to B-BBEE deal

2018-01-29 10:44 MT - News Release


Mr. Christopher Way reports

CANAF ANNOUNCES B-BBEE TRANSACTION FOR SOUTH AFRICAN SUBSIDIARY

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.
