IPL – Valuation review

Incitec Pivot operates in explosive/mining services and fertilizers. The stock remains under Algo Engine sell conditions, but we continue to watch the buying momentum and the upcoming earnings result for signs of strength.

We are encouraged by the recent capital raising which has helped to strengthen the balance sheet and should help navigate any short-term COVID-19 volatility.

IPL trades on a forward yield of 2.2%.

Incitec Pivot

Incitec Pivot is under Algo Engine sell conditions.

IPL is raising A$600mn via an underwritten placement and A$75mn via a share purchase plan at a 9% discount to the closing price on 8 May.

IPL’s capital raising is likely to be a positive near-term catalyst as a result of removing the funding risk. Although, we expect downward pressure on commodities to make the near-term operating conditions difficult for both IPL and ORI.
