Endeavour Mining is an intermediate gold producer, with four mines in Côte d’Ivoire (Agbaou and Ity) and Burkina Faso (Houndé and Karma) and two major development projects (Ity CIL and Kalana) in the highly prospective west African Birimian greenstone belt.

Investment summary

Since new management was engaged in late-2015 and its strategy reset, Endeavour has built itself into the largest gold producer in the Côte d’Ivoire and one of the top three in Burkina Faso, offering immediate cash flow from production and near-term growth from projects, to which end it has instigated a major exploration programme, expending c US$45m pa with the aim of expanding its resources by c 10–15Moz over five years.

Industry outlook

EDV’s exploration programme holds out the possibility of maintaining and extending near-term production rates into the foreseeable future. In valuing Endeavour, we have opted to discount forecast cash flows back over four years and then to apply an ex-growth multiple to terminal cash-flows consistent with a 10% discount rate, which results in a value for EDV of c US$27.58/share currently. In the meantime, Q119 production and cost results were both better than our prior expectations and the Ity CIL project has achieved commercial production around three months ahead of schedule.
