Harmony Gold Mining Company Limited HMY posted adjusted loss of 10 cents per share in fiscal 2020 (ended Jun 30, 2020) against adjusted earnings of 14 cents recorded a year ago.

Revenues and Costs

In fiscal 2020, revenues fell 1.6% to $1,867 million from $1,898 million registered a year ago. Average gold prices received during the fiscal rose roughly 14% year over year to $1,461 per oz.  

Gold production was 1,217,323 ounces (oz) in the fiscal, down around 15% year over year.

Cash operating costs per ounce rose around 14% to $1,099. All-in-sustaining costs (AISC) rose around 7% year over year to $1,293 per oz.

Financial Overview

At the end of fiscal 2020, cash and cash equivalents rose more than five-folds year over year to $367 million. Cash flow from operating activities fell 9.1% year over year to $300 million in the fiscal.

Net debt was $79 million at the end of fiscal 2020.

Outlook

Harmony Gold plans to produce 1.25-1.3 million oz of gold in fiscal 2021.

The company stated that it is well-positioned to gain from the expected strength of the gold price. In addition to its Tier 1 projects such as Wafi-Golpu and a pipeline of organic projects in South Africa, the company is expected to benefit from the newly-acquired assets that will boost production as conditions improve.

Price Performance

Shares of Harmony have rallied 86.2% in the past year compared with the industry’s 55.9% rise.

Last year, it generated $24 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $77.6 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
