Oxiana and Zinifex – Mining Merger Mania

Australian stockmarket analyst Citi Investment Research (CIR) have provided some guidance to the mining companies Oxiana and Zinifex. Both Oxiana have the potential to fill the void left by the disappearance of MIM and WMR. However, combining the two fills the void in one step. The combined enterprise value of the companies is ~$11bn and with a potential EBITDA of $2bn in FY09e, the current EV equates to an EV/EBITDA multiple of ~5.5x. Merging the two companies would result in production of ~750kt Zn, ~200kt Cu, 375koz Au, 80kt Pb and 10Moz of Silver by FY10e. This would make the company comparable to the old WMR and only a coal business away from being a Teck Cominco. EBITDA would be ~$2bn in FY09e with NPAT of ~$1.3bn. However, once CIR’s long-term prices kick in, prospective NPAT drops to ~$500m. Post the smelter spin-out, the cash position of a merged entity would be ~$4.4bn by the end of FY08e, with minimal debt. With ZFX still to appoint a new CEO, this could be the opportunity for OXR to show their wares. A beauty parade potentially awaits. Interestingly, Xstrata doubled in size with the $4.9bn takeover of MIM in 2003. Merging ZFX/OXR would essentially result in a similar size company, with enough cash to keep on growing through further deals. However, mine life still missing, the key risk would be the same risk currently experienced by both companies - the shortage of long mine-life assets. However, a cash balance of $4.4bn could go a long way to solving that problem. Given the temptations of a highly leveraged business and bank full of cash, OXR will not be the only company interested in ZFX post smelter spin out.
