Chile is making a renewed push for battery technology investment in return for access to its lithium deposits, piquing interest from China, Japan and Europe as global firms look to tie up supply of the metal vital for the shift to electric vehicles. The South American country, the world's No. 2 lithium producer, has held global road shows ahead of a second lithium-for-investment tender, according to officials and Chilean government documents seen by Reuters.
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded Tianqi Lithium Corporation's corporate family rating and the senior unsecured rating on the bonds issued by Tianqi Finco Co., Ltd and guaranteed by Tianqi Lithium to Ba3 from Ba2. "The downgrades reflect Moody's expectation that Tianqi Lithium's capital structure will remain weak and its leverage will stay elevated over the next 12 months, because of weaker operating performance," says Gerwin Ho, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Ba2 corporate family rating to Tianqi Lithium Corporation and has withdrawn the company's Baa3 issuer rating. At the same time, Moody's has downgraded the senior unsecured rating on the bonds issued by Tianqi Finco Co., Ltd and guaranteed by Tianqi Lithium to Ba2 from Baa3.
Moody's Investors Service has placed on review for downgrade the Baa3 issuer rating of Tianqi Lithium Corporation, and the Baa3 senior unsecured rating on the bonds issued by Tianqi Finco Co., Ltd and guaranteed by Tianqi Lithium. "The review for downgrade reflects Tianqi Lithium's slower than expected deleveraging, due to delays in executing its equity financing plan and a weaker operating performance amid volatility in lithium chemical prices," says Gerwin Ho, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer. Tianqi Lithium's elevated financial leverage following its acquisition of a 23.8% stake in Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile S.A. (SQM, Baa1 stable) has weakened the company's capital structure and financial flexibility.
Moody's Investors Service says that Tianqi Lithium Corporation's (Baa3 negative) proposed rights issue -- once it completes -- is credit positive, but will have no immediate impact either on its Baa3 issuer rating or the Baa3 senior unsecured rating on the bonds issued by Tianqi Finco Co., Ltd and guaranteed by Tianqi Lithium. "The proposed rights issue, if completed, is credit positive for Tianqi Lithium because it provides equity funding to lower the company's debt level," says Gerwin Ho, a Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer. On 23 April 2019, Tianqi Lithium received approvals from its shareholders on a rights issue that could raise proceeds of up to RMB7 billion.

China's Tianqi Lithium Corp said on Wednesday it would nominate two Chileans and a U.S. businessman to the board of lithium miner SQM, candidates seen as 'safe choices' for the world's No. 2 lithium producer as it faces booming demand. Tianqi last year paid $4.1 billion for a near-quarter stake in SQM, as Chinese companies scoured the globe for the ultralight battery metal needed to ramp up Chinese production of electric vehicles. Tianqi's U.S. nominee, businessman Robert Zatta, worked as a chief financial officer until 2015 for Rockwood Holdings, a top competitor of SQM in Chile's Salar de Atacama, before it was purchased by the U.S.-based Albemarle, now the world's top lithium producer.

Chilean lithium miner SQM on Thursday received environmental approval to expand its lithium carbonate production plant, the local environmental regulator told Reuters, marking a milestone as the company seeks to boost output of the coveted ultralight battery metal. The $400 million plant expansion, once complete, would allow the Chinese-backed SQM to eventually produce as much as 180,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate a year from its Atacama salt flat operations in Chile. Water has become a key sticking point for the expansion plans of both SQM and top competitor Albemarle, both of which operate in the Atacama desert, the world's driest.

The court's president said an "extraordinary session" would decide whether to hear in full a complaint by SQM's majority shareholder that the country's antitrust court failed to follow due process in approving a settlement between Tianqi and Chilean regulators. The agreement cleared the way for the Chinese miner to purchase a 24 percent stake in SQM , the world's No. 2 producer of lithium.
A rebound in mining mergers and acquisitions is set to continue into 2019, led by companies from top metals consumer China, as a dearth of exploration spending leaves the industry in need of fresh investment, delegates told a conference on Thursday. Sector M&A in mining powerhouse Canada had its best quarter in more than seven years in July-September, spurred by Barrick Gold Corp's planned $6.5 billion acquisition of Randgold and Chinese firm Zijin Mining's C$1.86 billion ($1.43 billion) deal to buy Nevsun Resources . "We think that this year and next year will be the years of consolidation," Keith Spence, president of Canada-based Global Mining Capital Corp, told the China Mining conference in Tianjin.
