Edison issues update on Baker Steel Resources Trust (BSRT)

Baker Steel Resources Trust (BSRT) reported an impressive NAV total return (TR) of 29.2% for 2020, visibly ahead of the EMIX Global Mining Index (22.2% TR in sterling). This largely resulted from a yearend valuation review of unlisted portfolio holdings and was driven by a combination of projects moving up the development curve, the rebound in commodity prices (CRB Commodity Index up by 21% in H220) and higher market multiples of listed peers (vs end-June). Key contributors include Cemos reaching full production capacity and Tungsten West being revalued after recent first closing of its GBP5.0m funding round. Their carrying value almost doubled, adding 8.9pp and 8.0pp to portfolio NAV TR, respectively.

In 2020 BSRT's shares traded at an average discount to NAV of c 20%, compared to its five-year average of c 25%. The discount has significantly narrowed by the year-end and turned into a slight premium (1.5%) on 30 December 2020 close, which may suggest investors already anticipated a significant NAV uplift. As such, the immediate share price response to the end-2020 NAV announcement on 14 January 2021 was only a c 10% increase compared to the 27.5% NAV uplift versus end-November, resulting in a double-digit discount to NAV (currently c 14.1%).
