What’s the reason behind the surge in Aurelia’s share price?

Recently, the company has shared annual general meeting results for 2022. According to ASX filing, in the financial year 2022:

  • The revenue of the company increased to AU$439 million from AU$416 million.
  • EBITDA increased to AU$166 million from AU$154 million.
  • Net cash flow from the operations grew from AU$137 million to AU$154 million.
  • During the year, the company reported a statutory net loss of AU$81.7 million and an underlying net loss of AU$1.4 million.

In the chairman’s address, three leading priorities were specified.

The first one is improving the operating performance to increase cash flows. The objective is to deliver predictable operating performance in line with the guidance of product revenue and volumes and within budget. To achieve these objectives, a team from KPMG has been brought in by Aurelia.

The second strategic priority is leadership renewal. On 18 November 2022, Dan Clifford, CEO and managing director of Aurelia, stepped down, after which the global search began. The key priority of the new CEO will be to unlock value at the Federation project.

Federation funding is the third strategic priority, under which the company is arranging and delivering funding solutions for developing the Federation project. As reported, the company is in discussion with many counterparties and is in the advanced stage of finalising the funding structure. By the first quarter of the calendar year 2023, it is expected that the funding structure will be finalised.
