NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ernst C. Schlotter, a senior analyst with Zurich, Switzerland-based SISM Research and a four star analyst according to Reuter’s StarMine, released his valuation updates on United Commodity (STU:3UI1.SG) increasing SISM’s 12 to 18 months price target to €37.00 per share.
“In December 2013 UC received a grant of $1 million from the Ontario government’s Ministry of Northern Development and Mines for the groundwork in the Yukon refinery as well as for job creation. Just recently, the Company reported to have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a potential partnership with Gowest Gold Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: (GWA) (GWSAF) to process concentrate from there Bradshaw Gold Deposit located in the prolific Timmins, Ontario gold camp. This deal could become significant for both Companies, as Gowest would provide long-term feedstock to one of the UC facility and Gowest secures refining facility for their gold concentrate.
The Company currently processes approximately thirty tons of mine tailing concentrate in a 24-hour schedule 7 days a week operation with a small profit. The management believes to enhance further the recovery rate and to increase the production to sixties tonnes per day during the second half of 2014. Beside the Gowest deal, the Company is in negotiations with other very large Canadian mining companies to treat mine tailings and concentrates.
United Commodity believes in strong business activities starting 2015 and thereafter. To meet the estimated strong supply in concentrated mine waste the Company need to increase the daily production from current thirty tons per day to more than 100 tonnes by the end of 2016. In 2013 UC’s multiplication strategy began and the Company established United Commodity Tailing Recycling Facility AG to utilizes the UC-CRT® Technology in new plants planned in the Cobalt Area. UC will hold a fifty-one percent ownership in this entity after the last round of financing. UC-TRF is privately held and is raising money to build scalable recycling facilities. We increase our 12 to 18 months price target to €37.00 based on a conservative 2016 fourteen times EBITDA per share valuation. Our Speculative Buy rating for the stock is supported by estimated strong growth rates. We recommend the stock be purchased only by long-term investors who can tolerate above-average risk and understand the risk of an in-development stage environmental remediation and mining company.”
