Fortescue Reports a Strong Fiscal Q2 2023, Retaining FVE of AUD 15

Jon Mills Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Jon Mills |

We retain our AUD 15 fair value estimate for no-moat Fortescue, with shares trading at a 50% premium to fair value. We think this partly reflects current iron ore prices, which remain elevated compared to the cost curve, and which have risen recently due to expectations of rising demand from China as it reopens after abandoning its zero-COVID-19 policy. We also think enthusiasm over Fortescue’s bold green energy ambitions is another driver of the premium. Yet green energy is an expensive and capital-intensive space, so we remain more circumspect. In our view, iron ore will remain the main driver of Fortescue’s earnings for the foreseeable future.

Key Statistics FMG

Company Profile FMG

Business Description

Fortescue is an Australia-based iron ore miner. It has grown from obscurity start of 2008 to become the world's fourth-largest producer. Growth was fuelled by debt, now repaid. Expansion from 55 million metric tons in fiscal 2012 to about 185 million metric tons in 2022 means Fortescue supplies nearly 10% of global seaborne iron ore. Further expansion above 200 million metric tons is likely once it completes construction of its 22 million metric tons Iron Bridge magnetite mine. However, with longer-term demand likely to decline as China's economy matures, we expect Fortescue's future margins to be below historical averages. More recently, Fortescue diversified into green energy, with ambitions to become a major supplier of green hydrogen and green ammonia. Its efforts are early stage.
