COIL : 2018 FIRST-HALF REVENUES
2018 FIRST-HALF REVENUES

Brussels, July 19, 2018 (5:45 pm) - COIL, the world leader for aluminium anodising, is reporting its revenues for the first half of 2018.

The first half of this year was marked by unprecedented aluminium price volatility. In December 2017, aluminium prices increased by 14% in just two weeks, but had returned to their previous levels by the end of March, only to rebound by 32% during the first half of April. They are currently 8% higher than their December 2017 prices.

In general, this price volatility does not directly affect COIL's results because it does not buy or sell the metal that it treats for its subcontracting business. In its project business, metal purchases are fully hedged when an order is taken. This situation has not had any effect on the Company's prices.

In addition, this volatility has a limited impact on underlying demand for aluminium, since end-users continue to purchase metal to satisfy end-market demand and competing materials (with the exception of steel) are significantly more expensive

However, high price volatility impacts the profitability of industrial aluminium users and significantly influences their purchasing and hedging strategies in the short term, particularly for metal distributors. For the first half of 2018, this situation was reflected in a destocking trend, concentrated primarily in the first quarter, with distributors needing to build their stock levels back up again from the second quarter faced with positive trends for underlying demand for continuous anodising.

In this environment, COIL recorded €12.1m of revenues for the first half of 2018, down 15.5% from the first half of 2017, with the first quarter accounting for all of this contraction. Sales of anodising services (€11.0m at June 30, 2018) are down 13.7% from the first half of 2017, but were stable in the second quarter of 2018.

Aluminium price volatility has also had a short-term effect on the project business. Sales of packaged offers (anodising with metal included) came to €1.1m, down compared with a high first half of 2017; they represent 9.2% of revenues at June 30, 2018, compared with 11.2% one year earlier. However, there was a strong resurgence in the level of enquiries in the second quarter.

From an industrial perspective, COIL has supported the start-up of its two new production lines in Belgium and Germany, which is expected to be reflected in certain related costs. The new automated batch anodising line, based on the new Aloxide® process, was opened in Belgium at the start of the year. The new Line 6 for continuous anodising in Germany is gradually taking on production from Line 3 in Belgium with a view to being fully operational by the end of September.

Given the current level of order intake, COIL expects the business to return to normal demand patterns in the second half of the year. With the new Aloxide® business coming on stream and the benefits of its Line 6 investment, the outlook for COIL's business is still excellent.

Next date: 2018 first-half earnings on October 2, 2018 (after close of trading).

COIL is the world's largest architectural and industrial anodiser.

Nemaska Lithium Inc. (TSX: NMX, OTCQX:NMKEF, FRANKFURT:N0T): is Positioned to Become a Fully-Integrated Lithium Producer
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Nemaska Lithium Inc. (TSX:NMX, OTCQX:NMKEF, FRANKFURT:N0T) is a pure play lithium investment, solely focused on developing its Whabouchi lithium project, in Quebec, into a viable lithium mine and electrochemical plant and becoming a leading supplier of lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate to the emerging lithium battery market, as well as other applications. Nemaska Lithium plans to be one of the world's largest producers of lithium hydroxide, vertically integrated, from spodumene mining to the commercialization of high-purity lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate. The Whabouchi mine is one of the richest lithium spodumene deposits in the world, both in volume and grade. We learned from Wanda Cutler, Investor Relations Manager for Nemaska Lithium, that close to 70% of the Company’s future production is spoken for, via off-take or right of first offer, with several large end-users. Nemaska just closed the $1.1 billion Canadian financing and is now fully financed to build both the mine as well as the electrochemical plant in Shawinigan that will utilize the company's patented process to transform spodumene concentrate directly into high purity lithium hydroxide. This technology gives Nemaska a considerable cost advantage over its competition, coming in as the lowest cost producer of lithium hydroxide in a high growth market.

Fission Uranium Corp (TSX: FCU, OTCQX: FCUUF) owns the award-winning Patterson Lake South uranium property, host to the near-surface, high-grade Triple R deposit, part of the largest mineralized trend in the Athabasca Basin region. We learned from Ross McElroy, who is President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Geologist of Fission Uranium, that what makes the Triple R deposit unique, within the Athabasca Basin, is that it is very shallow with high-grade mineralization starting at 50 meters, and with the whole bulk of the resource (around 140 million pounds total) located between 50-meter depth to about 350. Large size, shallow depth and high-grade make this prospect an open-pittable deposit. We learned from Mr. McElroy, that the high-grade domain in the deposit averages around 18 to 23% U3O8, with the entire deposit being at average grade of 1.8 to 1.82% U3O8, which is in the order of magnitude of 10 to 20 times the average grade of most uranium deposits around the world. Plans for 2018 include completing pre-feasibility study, followed by full bankable feasibility by 2019, 2020. Beyond those milestones, the company can start looking towards production. The long-term plan is to be in production by 2025.
