Let us have an insight on the recent updates and the stock performance of the three companies JLG, ROG and CZL.
Johns Lyng Group Limited
FY19E Revenue and EBITDA Revised Upward: Johns Lyng Group Limited (ASX: JLG) provided a further forecast revenue and EBITDA upgrade of 7.5% and 5% respectively for the full 2019 financial year. These forecasts followed an earlier forecast upgrade of 4% to revenue and 8% to EBITDA for the full year, provided at February’s 1H19 report.
The robust performance is primarily driven by revenue from non-forecast catastrophe recovery work, predominantly relating to the hailstorm in Sydney during December and the Townsville flooding event in February. The result was also driven by the strong trading in the insurance building and restoration services division’s core business-as-usual segment. With this upward revision, FY19 revenue is expected to be $319 million (+7.5%/+$22.3 million on Feb’19 forecast). The FY19 operating EBITDA is estimated at $20.9 million (+5%/+$1 million) with total EBITDA at $25.4 million (+4.1%/+$1 million).
The CEO of the company Scott Didier stated that this result reflected both the strength of the group’s core offering and its unique capacity to respond to catastrophic events. The year remained very successful for the group, and this result is a product of the market-leading national presence that the group has worked on very hard to build.

Consolidate Zinc Limited
Increased Production at Higher Grades: Consolidate Zinc Limited (ASX: CZL) provided an update at its Plomosas zinc-lead-silver mine in Mexico.
The mining from the level seven in the semi oxidised ore stopes has resulted in increased production at higher grades. 7,088 tonnes of ore have been produced for May at 14.5 % Zinc and 6.0% Lead. The SOX ore mined was sent to Triturado y Minerales La Piedrera S.A. de CV, who operate the Aldama concentrator facility, which is located close to the Plomosas Mine while the Tres Amigos ore mined was sent to the Grupo Mexico Santa Eulalia concentrator. As the SOX is over four metres wide, the stopes allow direct access of loaders and an increase in productivity. The Tres Amigos ore mined from level 5 stopes and the sublevel 972m RL stopes continued to require scraping to draw out the ore from the stope areas. This extra step in the mining process has limited production.
May 2019 Production Statistics (Source: Company Reports)
Ore processing during the month was at both the GMSE and Aldama plants. All Tres Amigo’s ore was delivered to GMSE with 2,527 tonnes milled and the SOX material was delivered to Aldama with 966 tonnes milled.
The average Zinc to Zinc concentrate recovery was 73.6%, which reflected the ramp-up of production at Aldama and the requirement to establish steady state operating parameters while commissioning.
The stock of Consolidate Zinc Limited settled the day’s trade at $0.013, up 8.33% with a market capitalization of $14.12 million (June 17, 2019). The stock yielded a negative YTD return of 29.41% and exhibited negative returns of 42.86%, 36.84% and 14.29% over the past six months, three months and one-month period respectively. Its 52-week high price stands at $0.029 with a 52-week low price of $0.006, and an average annual volume of ~1.07 million.
