Company Overview

Business Description
PanAust Limited is involved in production and sale of copper-gold concentrate from the Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation, Laos; production and sale of gold-silver doré from the Ban Houayxai Gold-Silver Operation, Laos and Exploration and evaluation of projects in Laos, Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Chile. PanAust is structured into three business units - PanAust Asia, PanAust South America, and Project Development.
Strategy Analysis
PanAust seeks to grow organically via development of its portfolio of copper and gold projects. Management expects a more than doubling in copper equivalent production from around 60,000 tonnes a year to around 120,000 tonnes by fiscal 2015. Successful development of the Phu Kham and Ban Houayxai mines in south east Asia add credibility. PanAust reported NPAT up 8% to US$142.27m for the year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were US$712.7m, up 24% from last year. The majority of this increase was associated with commencement of gold-silver dore sales from the Ban Houayxai gold-silver operation which started commercial production from 1 June 2012. Diluted EPS was 23.91 US cents compared to 22.28 US cents last year. Net operating cash flow was US$198.39m compared to US$239.14m last year. The final dividend declared was 4.0 AU cents, taking the full year dividend to 7.0 AU cents compared with nil cents last year.
