Syrah Resources (SYR) has announced its second major MoU for Off-take of 100-150ktpa graphite concentrate with European trader Asmet. Total MOU's for Off-take now total 180 - 250ktpa. Importantly Asmet intends to use the graphite fines from Balama as a recarburiser in foundry applications and high quality steel production. The MoU for off-take with Asmet is set at an approximate price of US$1,000/t over an initial five year period. We have increased the modelled size of the initial project from 240kt to 350ktpa as we believe this is likely to be the optimal size for the logistics chain and initial market size opportunity. Furthermore we have increased the capital cost estimate to A$150m, however we have not included any vanadium as a by-product credit or co-product stream, this continues to remain an upside risk to the valuation. We maintain our BUY rating with target increasing to A$8.40 (previously A$7.80). (VIEW LINK)
