Company Overview

Business Description:
Resource Generation Limited (RES) is an energy resource company dual listed on the Australian and Johannesburg Stock Exchange. RES has coal interests in South Africa as well as uranium prospects in Cameroon. Currently, RES is focused on the development of its Boikarabelo mine in the Waterberg region of South Africa.

Strategy Analysis:
The strategy is to develop high grade ‚Äėenergy‚Äô related resources into viable and competitive mining operations. The portfolio of resources already accumulated includes low overburden, inexpensive to mine coal deposits in SA and Australia as well as potentially very low cost uranium deposits in Cameroon. Exploration programs are underway and, in addition in the case of South Africa, mine approval processes that can lead to the commencement of cash flow positive mining operations in as short a timeframe as possible. Resource Generation reported a net loss $760,000 for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $758,000, down 29% from the same period last year. Diluted EPS was (0.29) cents compared to (0.29) cents last year. The net operating cash outflow was $485,000 compared to an outflow of $791,000 in the pcp. No dividend was declared.
