2023 key highlights

Financial

  • Recommended 2023 dividend of $50.0 million or USc56.04 per share, a 3% increase compared to 2022 (USc54.31), comprising an interim dividend of USc17.50 per share (paid in October 2023) and a final dividend of USc38.54 per share (payable in May 2024)
  • Mineral product revenue of $437.1 million, a 12% decrease compared to 2022 ($498.3 million), driven by a 10% lower average price received for Kenmare's products, due to weaker markets and a 3% reduction in shipments
  • Total cash operating costs of $228.1 million, up 4% on 2022 ($218.7 million), due to increased heavy mobile equipment rental, higher fuel costs, and costs associated with a severe lightning strike in Q1 2023
  • Cash operating costs per tonne of $209, a 15% increase compared to 2022 ($182 per tonne), due to higher total cash operating costs and a 9% decrease in production of finished products
  • EBITDA of $220.3 million, representing a strong EBITDA margin of 50% (2022: 60%), despite weaker product pricing driving a 26% decrease on 2022 ($298.0 million)
  • Profit after tax of $131.0 million, down 36% on 2022 ($206.0 million)
  • Diluted earnings per share of $1.37 per share, a 35% decrease on 2022 ($2.12 per share)

Operational and corporate

  • As announced on 15 March 2024, Managing Director Michael Carvill will step down from his executive role and Board position later this year - the Nomination Committee has commenced a process to find his successor
  • Strong safety performance achieved in Q4 2023 has continued in Q1 2024, with the milestone of three million hours without a Lost Time Injury passed in late February
  • Heavy Mineral Concentrate ("HMC") production of 1,448,300 tonnes in 2023, a 9% decrease compared to 2022 (1,586,200 tonnes), due to lower ore grades and mining rates impacted by power interruptions and a severe lightning strike in Q1 2023
  • Ilmenite production of 986,300 tonnes in 2023, a 9% decrease on 2022 (1,088,300 tonnes), broadly in line with a 9% reduction in HMC processed
  • Shipments of finished products of 1,045,200 tonnes in 2023, a 3% decrease on 2022 (1,075,600 tonnes), due to weaker product markets and poor weather conditions in Q4 2023
  • Ilmenite production guidance for 2024 is 950,000 to 1,050,000 tonnes
