Proforma FCF yield of 26.2% is imminent - rising to 67.1% in 2027.
NKL is a producer of battery metals with royalty/streaming exposure focusing
on nickel and cobalt. Its three primary assets are interests in world class
nickel-cobalt projects. Ramu in Papua New Guinea (8.56% shareholding) is
already in “steady-state” production. Dumont (1.75% NSR) and Turnagain
(2.0% NSR) benefit from Canadian jurisdiction, solid environmental credentials
and Dumont is “shovel ready”. Management and shareholders interests are
aligned with the former owning 19.0%.
