Company Overview

Business Description:
Grange Resources Ltd (GRR) owns and operates iron ore mining and pellet production business located in the northwest region of Tasmania. GRR focuses on magnetite projects in two main areas, namely, Savage River Mine Operation and Southdown Project.

Strategy Analysis:
The company has maintained its strategy of pursuing growth through acquiring smaller bolt-on acquisitions that deliver value for shareholders. GRR will continue to pursue a policy of careful capital management and will be reinvesting in plants while watching for other acquisition opportunities and maintaining the company's capability to take advantage of other significant opportunities to add value to the asset portfolio. The company is working to eliminate raw materials that are genetically modified, from the retail branded products wherever this is technically possible and will maximise cost recovery through operational efficiency and price recovery in the market place. Sustained increases in the costs of agricultural commodities are expected to ease in the future. Grange Resources reported NPAT down 83% to $35.90m for the year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $331.31m, down 19% from last year. Diluted EPS was 3.1 cents compared to 18.76 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $131.93m compared to $210.38m last year. The final dividend declared was 2 cents, taking the full year dividend to 2 cents compared with 2 cents last year.
