A-Share Listed Rare Metal Companies - Profiles and Financial Data
According to CRI analysis, China has the world's largest reserves of lithium, beryllium, niobium, tantalum, strontium and rubidium while zirconium, hafnium and cesium are scarce in China and rely on import to meet domestic demand. China's rare metal ores are concentrated in Sichuan, Jiangxi, Hunan, Qinghai, Tibet, Hubei, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia.
The production volume of tungsten, molybdenum, indium, bismuth, germanium, gallium and tellurium is very small, but all of these metals have special attributes, making them indispensable materials in the high-tech industry. China has abundant rare metals and is the major producer in the world. In 2016, the production volume of major rare metals is: 90,000 tons of refined nickel ore, 97,000 tons of refined tin ore, 108,000 tons of refined stibium ore, 140,000 tons of refined tungsten ore (converted to WO3 65%) and 287,000 tons of refined molybdenum ore (converted to pure molybdenum 45%). The production of these ores all accounts for over 50% of corresponding global production volume. China's rare metals have long been exported as raw materials because of weak downstream demand. This is because Chinese enterprises have not invested enough in the high end of the industry chain, including key technologies, key materials and key parts.
According to CRI analysis, the rapid development of China's high-tech industries has been driving the demand for rare metals. The Chinese government has also been issuing policies to encourage developments in the rare metal industry and downstream new material industries. In the next few years, China's rare metal industry will continue to grow.
In this report, CRI analyzes 22 rare metal mining and smelting enterprises listed in A-share market in China.
The report is composed of two parts: the first part is enterprise profiles and the second part is the operation status of these enterprises in the recent decade (presently 2006 to 2016, we will update it to the latest as time goes by).
The operation status is demonstrated from the following perspectives: (1) financial indexes, such as earnings per share, book value per share (BPS), sales per share, net cash flow per share, return on net worth and debt to asset ratio; (2) indexes on the income statement, such as revenue, operating profit, net profit and EBIT; (3) indexes on the income statement, such as revenue, operating profit, net profit and EBIT; (4) indexes on the balance sheet, such as liquid asset, fixed asset, current liability, non-current liability, capital reserve and shareholders' equity.
