Lithium Power International — Lithium price upgrade calls for higher valuation

We have raised our near-term lithium price expectations to reflect the current supply/demand cycle and upgraded our long-run (post 2031) price forecasts (from US$17,000/t to US$22,500/t LCE) to reflect lithium’s high demand growth and highly concentrated supply fundamentals. On the back of this, our valuation of Lithium Power International (LPI) has increased from A$1.24/share to A$1.42/share assuming the full project equity dilution. We have also updated our model to reflect 100% consolidation of the Maricunga project as well as LPI’s (now somewhat more dilutive) lower share price.

Business description

Lithium Power International’s main asset is its 100% interest in the Maricunga lithium brine project in Chile. Subject to securing a funding package, the first stage of the project is expected to produce 15.2ktpa of high-grade lithium carbonate, starting from 2026. It also owns two early-stage exploration lithium projects in Western Australia, which it plans to demerge in Q1 CY23.

Strong long-term lithium demand fundamentals

Lithium is a solid long-term structural growth story, reflecting its use in electric vehicle (EV) batteries and other energy storage applications linked to grid decarbonisation. We see demand growing at a 20.3% CAGR from 2022 to 2030, which is exceptionally high in commodity and chemical markets. Our estimates point to lithium demand in 2030 of approximately 3Mt, broadly in line with industry and International Energy Agency projections and 4–5x current levels. At a typical capital intensity of US$25,000/t (according to our review of public project plans), we estimate that the 2.1Mtpa of additional industry capacity by 2030 will require US$52.5bn of investment. This is both a financing and a technical challenge in this timeframe. Supply chain security and the decarbonisation of critical minerals supply chains mean a wide variety of new entrants will be needed.

Maricunga update: Water rights acquisition

LPI has recently announced that it completed an acquisition of the water rights for the Maricunga project. This replaces a long-term lease that the company held for part of its water requirements and will secure water supply for both Stage 1 (15.2ktpa lithium carbonate) and any future expansions. LPI estimates the initial stage of the project will only require eight litres/second of water compared to the 62 litres/second rights acquired by the company.

Valuation: Up on higher lithium prices

Our valuation of LPI increases from A$1.24/share to A$1.42/share on the back of the higher lithium prices, which were partly offset by the lower share price (A$0.50 vs A$0.71) and the associated higher project equity dilution. Our underlying project assumptions remain largely unchanged and are based on Maricunga’s 2022 DFS. We now assume 100% consolidation of the project ownership by LPI and have also updated our model for the latest financial results. Despite the current backdrop of slower global growth and somewhat weaker lithium prices, lithium supply/demand fundamentals remain favourable, and the sector retains its attractive long-term growth potential.

Lithium price upgrade: Structurally tight market

Edison has recently published a thematic report on the lithium sector that looks at the industry supply/demand fundamentals, brine/hard rock project economics as well as the short- and long-term lithium price dynamics. Key conclusions from our report are as follows:

We raised our long-run prices from US$17,000/t to US$22,500/t lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) to reflect the significant need for additional production capacity in the late 2020s. This is well below spot (c US$70,000/t), but we do not expect prices to move towards long-term pricing until post 2030 and also question if traditional long-term pricing methodology works well in high-growth industries. We argue that a significant premium to a traditional incentive price is required because of rapid demand growth (c 20% CAGR 2022–30, which is unusually high and probably unprecedented for a commodity industry). A multiple of traditional incentive prices is also not unprecedented in highly concentrated industries (iron ore has traded at approximately double incentive prices for large incumbent producers for the past decade and copper trades at 3–4x what were thought of as incentive prices as recently as the mid-2000s).

Our demand analysis indicated lithium demand growing at a 20% CAGR through to 2030, boosting demand to 3Mt by 2030, up 4–5x from current levels.

We raised our short-term price forecasts to reflect recent price moves, and acknowledge near-term uncertainty. We project a potential supply/demand surplus on an unrisked basis in 2023, but a more balanced market once potential risks are incorporated (including technical risks, commissioning risks and other general delays). Short-term price momentum may dominate sentiment, but the longer-term need for additional capital spending is the core theme underlying lithium for the 2020s.

Our updated lithium price deck is shown in Exhibit 1.

LPI valuation update

We have updated our valuation of LPI on the back of our higher lithium price forecasts, which was partly offset by the assumed lower share price used in our project equity dilution. As a result, our valuation of LPI has increased from A$1.24/share to A$1.42/share on a fully equity diluted basis assuming a current share price of A$0.50/share and our standard mining sector discount rate of 10%. At our previous share price assumption of A$0.71/share, our valuation of LPI would be A$1.67/share. We maintain all our underlying project assumptions bar one: we now assume that the construction of the project will start in CY24 (versus CY23 before). We note that Maricunga is at final investment decision (FID) stage and await more news from the company on the potential development routes and timelines. We have also updated our model to reflect the project’s full consolidation by LPI. Our valuation excludes the value of LPI’s West Australian hard rock lithium assets, which are early stage and which we previously valued at A$0.19/share based on an EV/resources multiple. We understand that the company is still looking to spin off these assets in Q1 CY23, which we believe should crystallise additional value for LPI shareholders.

To recap, our valuation of LPI is based on the assumption of 60/40% debt/equity split. We assume that equity (US$225m) is raised at the current share price. Our model uses underlying project assumptions from the definitive feasibility study (DFS) published in January 2022. In particular, we assume development capex of US$564m and a direct cash cost of US$3,772/tonne of LCE. We note that while the project’s capital intensity came in at a relatively high level of c US$37,000/t LCE in early 2022, the recent opex and capex pressures and a number of capital cost overruns from LPI’s peers demonstrate that the company was relatively conservative and prudent in its project cost assumptions.
