Stockholm, 10 November 2023. Orior Capital (“Orior”) has initiated coverage of Northgold AB (Nasdaq First North Growth Market: “NG”, or “Northgold” or the “Company”). Orior’s experienced research analyst, Simon Francis, has reviewed available public information and issued a detailed research initiation report titled, “The best risk-reward in gold.” The initiation report reviews many aspects of the Company and stock, including valuation considerations and a conceptual development scenario for the Company’s flagship Kopsa copper-gold project in central Finland. The report is attached to this release, and will be available on the Company’s website, under: Investors. The analysis is a so-called commissioned research where Northgold has signed an agreement with Orior for research coverage. The intention is to increase Northgold's visibility on the capital market and enable both investors and other stakeholders to form a better and more informed opinion of the Company's operations. The analyses are produced against customary fixed remuneration.
- The research report underpins a prospective Northgold valuation of SEK17.15/sh, based on the average enterprise value (“EV”) per resource ounce (“oz”) for Orior’s selected comparable peer group, applied to Northgold’s mineral resources.
- Report also includes an alternative valuation using a Discounted Cash Flow (“DCF”) analysis applied to a conceptual Kopsa production scenario, which suggests an even higher prospective Northgold valuation of SEK 35.73/sh, based on a post-tax NPV multiple of 0.4x for Kopsa’s production potential, and a peer group average EV/oz applied to other projects’ resources.
