Deutsche Bank analyst highlights Ferrexpo’s 'very strong' production


Deutsche Bank analyst Rob Clifford examined Ferrexpo’s (LON:FXPO) third quarter production figures in a recent note to clients.

Clifford highlighted September’s performance, describing it as very strong, with 911,000 tonnes of iron pellets produced.

“With the share price trading well below our price target we maintain our buy recommendation”, Clifford said.

The analyst noted that September’s 911,000 tonne pellet production represented an annualised rate of 11.1 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa), which is a significant increase on the previous month.

To achieve the increase Ferrexpo bought in third party concentrate to process, the analyst noted.

“While not as profitable as processing its own material, it is clear that company is testing its real capacities before ramping up its mine,” Clifford said.

Ferrexpo owns an open-pit iron ore mine and the concentrating and pellet processing operations in central Ukraine.
