Investment summary

On 12 August Gemfields announced exceptional results from an online auction of commercial quality emeralds from Kagem which set new all-time records for a commercial quality emerald auction both in terms of total revenue of US$23.1m and also average revenue per carat of US$6.61/ct. Production at both Kagem and MRM resumed in March 2021 and has ramped up rapidly.

Industry outlook

Gemfields’ online mini-auction process (as customers cannot travel internationally to auctions as usual, stones have been shown in Tel Aviv, Dubai and Jaipur followed by online auctions) has been a resounding success. The US$23.1m from the latest commercial quality auction adds to the US$90.3m generated from a high quality ruby and a high quality emerald auction in H121. Not only does this shore up Gemfields’ balance sheet but the success of the auctions is also a very clear indication of the strength of market demand for the company’s emerald and ruby production.
