Today's announcement by Exxaro could have a nice upside for WSL being only 51% black OWNED coal miner/supplier on the JSE.......wishful thinking yeah I know...but also hard fact.

Well yesterday we had Peregrine telling us they have gotten 5% of WSL, are they viewed as astute asset managers....?.....don't know much about them....Now today's SENS confirming what I  was hoping for......Ahhhhh......nice...

 

I is not fully convinced that we is here to stay cos me thinks the Minoscape party has already sold his quota for the month already.....so early in Nov we should get some idea of his appetite for WSL at these levels.....

Enjoy....R2+ may it continue.

Hmmmm......!

THE preferred bidders of the first bid window for the coal baseload programme are Thabemetsi and Khanyisa, Energy Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson announced on Monday.

 

Participants in the first bid window were required to have a minimum South African entity participation of 51%, black ownership of 30%, and a weighted broad-based black economic empowerment status of level five under the codes of good practice for their locally based shareholders.

Joemat-Pettersson said the two bidders were backed by foreign developers from Korea, Japan and Saudi Arabia, the South African banking sector, including the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC).

Coincidence or......To be continued......?

Good w/end to all.

Website has a nice power-point presentation on yesterday's SENS, couple points that come out now I've digested it more, they really have put up their "blackness" over the last few years for nothing really so yeah me gets the reasoning behind these last year or 2 of turbulence to actually get some recognition of the fact Wescoal couldn't sell most of their product without these guys. Next while I'm on about it where the "F" are all these so called desperate "black asset managers" looking for support from the "established players" to place confidence via investment in companies like WSL....!     Then today R178mil doesn't buy you much when shopping in the mining warehouse now does it..... :rolleyes:    All in all I think it's a good move so lets grab some Gupta coal assets when they have a fire sale put a layer of respectability over them or others like that & bring home the bacon for the long-haulers or at least get over R2 already.....Geez like it....! 

Have a good day at market..

Well is today good news....? Chairman has total control now.......... kinda have to admit he's had to pay up for it...So IDC have given us R178mil to go & spend cool..... cos these guys are pretty good deal makers & now there's some serious skin in the game cash-wise to lose if they get it wrong only slightly.....The nice thing is that they must be generating solid cash flow now to give us another R10mil to share.....I think anything less than 25c/ HEPS come Nov interim results will be short of the mark but this divi gives me confidence that we is on track for there or there-abouts.

Still happy to hold but will not add as have enough me thinks..... B) 

Over & out.....!

WESCOAL HOLDINGS LIMITED
Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa
(Registration number 2005/006913/06)
Share code: WSL
ISIN: ZAE000069639
(“Wescoal” or "the Group")

Coal purchase agreements and export supply contract
Wescoal is pleased to announce that it has successfully finalised a series of material coal supply
contracts with third parties (‘Coal Purchase Confirmations’). This is in line with the Group’s stated
intent to diversify its revenue streams and to supply one million tons per annum of coal into the
export market.

In terms of the Coal Purchase Confirmations, Wescoal will supply over five million tons of coal from
November 2016 to April 2021.

The Coal Purchase Confirmations would expand Wescoal’s presence in the domestic thermal coal
market and increase its exports to approximately one million tons per annum. The agreements
further de-risk and provide certainty around future Wescoal cash flows and diversity of its revenue
streams.

Lets hope today was ALL him so this ceiling of R2 can be put behind us already.

F@ckin' De-Ja-Vu nearly 2yrs later..... :rolleyes:

With the significant eskom announcement and mention of similar high performance results expected, any view what shareholders could or should expect from this crew?

 

- Solidify current business with efficiency initiatives?

- Mergers?

- etc

 

and what would be fair value of the share price for these scenarios?

Me thinks everything is still on track & will get much better.

There's just the Minoscape overhang that needs to wash through there was after all 16mil shares issued.

This guy is limited to selling maximum 500,000 per month so it's gonna take a while for them to be absorbed he was issued them at 200c

Plus Mr market may think they took their eye off the ball with their water licence application, too much going on at once & they overlooked some or other box ticking legislation required by the DMR.

As for the weather well......& Eskom didn't take as much last year as they were contracted to, when Medupi finally comes on stream volumes to Eskom will jump.

Thinking of E-mailing them for clarification on the water use licence hold up. Will post reply if & when.   ;)

 

Lets hope today was ALL him so this ceiling of R2 can be put behind us already.

Yeah have to agree with CEO's comments great platform to build from.

Now we have to wait for the Minoscape share overhang to filter through before we can move significantly above R2..

Thank you government for the 26% empowerment confirmation. Hope this news contributes to Eskom and WSL tying up a long term supply contracts now. I wonder what the contract values would be worth in terms of new jobs and caah as Eskom has played hardball recently with what they consider expensive coal supplier contract.<br />
