Looks as if the CEO of CAF has already established himself in South Africa's realm of black empowerment. He started a company a few years ago called Sewa Coti, as per his LinkedIn: Sewa Coti is an African-focused consultancy specialising in due diligence, project management, strategy, as well as B-BBEE legislation in South Africa.

So what that tells me is that with pretty much 100% certainty we will get a deal done, established Canaf with government contracts and shouldn't have any issue diversifying. This guy is smart, he has paved the road to growing this company far beyond where it's currently at.

From CAF's last MD&A:

The Corporation also remains focused on completing a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) transaction for Southern Coal, by mid-June 2018. The B-BBEE is a form of economic empowerment initiated by the South African government with the goal to distribute wealth across as broad a spectrum of previously disadvantaged South African society as possible. A new partner has been identified and initial terms of the agreement, which will remain much the same as the previously agreed transaction, will most probably be announced by the end of April 2018. The Corporation remains confident that it will achieve its B-BBEE goals during the current fiscal year and we remain optimistic of the opportunities that will arise from such a transaction.

MD&A Highlights

Revenues for the six months were $8,698,426 (2017 - $6,482,459) a 34% increase, and the Corporation continues to be profitable with gross profits of $703,169 (2017 - $684,905) a 2.7% increase and net income for six month period ended April 30, 2018 of $449,880 (2017 - $429,652) a $20,288, 4.7% increase. While revenues and gross margin have grown, increased cost of sales produced smaller gross margin percentages, 2018 8.1% (2017 10.6%).

The reduction in the gross margin is mainly due to a major maintenance project during the period. The Corporation expects to continue to operate profitably into Q3 and Q4, however Revenue is expected to drop, due to a reduction in demand caused primarily by one of Southern Coals main customers’ internal coke breeze coming back online.

The outlook and profitability of the Corporation remains strong and the Corporation expects to continue to generate positive free cash flow during the fiscal year-end 2018 and, as it accumulates cash and reduces its gearing and increases its efficiencies, will continue to look at investment in related business opportunities in South Africa and neighbouring countries.

The Corporation’s B-BBEE transaction for the sale of 30% of Quantum’s shares in Southern Coal remains on track to be completed during the current fiscal year. Following the termination of the initial agreement announced on 20 February 2018, a new B-BBEE partner has been identified and initial terms of the agreement, which will remain much the same as the previously agreed transaction, are expected to be announced during Q3.

Sales from the Corporation’s South African coal processing business are substantially derived from two customers and as a result, the Corporation is economically dependent on these customers. The Corporation’s exposure to credit risk is limited to the carrying value of its accounts receivable. As at April 30, 2018, trade receivables of $3,604,555 (October 31, 2017, $1,314,828) were due from these customers and were collected subsequent to period-end.

The bank loan bears interest at 10.25% per annum, matures on January 7, 2019, and is secured by the Corporation’s furnace acquired with the proceeds from the loan. The bank loan is repayable in blended monthly payments of Rand 391,624 ($32,359.89 translated at April 30, 2018 exchange rate)). During the six month period ended April 30, 2018, the Corporation incurred interest expense totaling $19,909 (April 30, 2017 – $29,658).

Expenses for the six months were $304,980 (2017 - $237,288) an increase of $67,692, 29%, primarily due to increased costs relating to the B-BBEE program

General administrative and finance expenses for the six month period were $285,071 (April 30, 2017 - $207,630) an unfavourable variance of $77,441, primarily due to increased involvement in South Africa’s B-BBEE program and increased activity resulting in higher management fees and office expenses. Additional detail of general and admin expenses can be found in the table below.

What You Must Know About Canaf Investments Inc’s (CVE:CAF) Financial Strength
Armando Maloney July 13, 2018
Canaf Investments Inc (CVE:CAF) is a small-cap stock with a market capitalization of US$4.98m. While investors primarily focus on the growth potential and competitive landscape of the small-cap companies, they end up ignoring a key aspect, which could be the biggest threat to its existence: its financial health. Why is it important? Evaluating financial health as part of your investment thesis is crucial, as mismanagement of capital can lead to bankruptcies, which occur at a higher rate for small-caps. I believe these basic checks tell most of the story you need to know. Nevertheless, this commentary is still very high-level, so I recommend you dig deeper yourself into CAF here.

Does CAF produce enough cash relative to debt?
CAF’s debt levels have fallen from US$566.85k to US$271.61k over the last 12 months , which comprises of short- and long-term debt. With this debt payback, the current cash and short-term investment levels stands at US$315.41k , ready to deploy into the business. Moreover, CAF has generated cash from operations of US$536.73k during the same period of time, leading to an operating cash to total debt ratio of 197.61%, indicating that CAF’s debt is appropriately covered by operating cash. This ratio can also be a sign of operational efficiency as an alternative to return on assets. In CAF’s case, it is able to generate 1.98x cash from its debt capital.

Does CAF’s liquid assets cover its short-term commitments?
At the current liabilities level of US$2.72m liabilities, the company has been able to meet these obligations given the level of current assets of US$4.36m, with a current ratio of 1.61x. Usually, for Metals and Mining companies, this is a suitable ratio since there is a bit of a cash buffer without leaving too much capital in a low-return environment.

TSXV:CAF Historical Debt July 12th 18
TSXV:CAF Historical Debt July 12th 18
Is CAF’s debt level acceptable?
CAF’s level of debt is appropriate relative to its total equity, at 10.45%. CAF is not taking on too much debt commitment, which can be restrictive and risky for equity-holders. We can check to see whether CAF is able to meet its debt obligations by looking at the net interest coverage ratio. A company generating earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) at least three times its net interest payments is considered financially sound. In CAF’s, case, the ratio of 32.89x suggests that interest is comfortably covered, which means that lenders may be inclined to lend more money to the company, as it is seen as safe in terms of payback.

China to invest $15 billion in South African economy

China to invest $15 billion in South African economy

Beijing has pledged to bankroll $14.7 billion in South Africa and provide the country’s power utility and logistics corporation with loans. The South African rand firmed by more than one percent on news of the investment.
The announcement followed a meeting between the two countries’ leaders President Cyril Ramaphosa and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Pretoria. Xi’s state visit took place ahead of the 10th BRICS summit, scheduled for July 25-27. South Africa's biggest city of Johannesburg is set to welcome the heads of Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

“China is ready to invest and work with South Africa in various sectors, such as infrastructure development, ocean economy, green economy, science and technology, agriculture, environment and finance,” Ramaphosa told journalists following the meeting.

“We also recognized that, although trade figures have grown steadily over the past few years, bilateral trade has not reached its potential. We have thus explored avenues for increasing trade, identifying sectors for future investment and promoting tourism.”

The parties reportedly signed three major agreements aimed at strengthening mutual trade and identifying sectors for future investment. The presidents also announced plans to relax travel restrictions and loosen visa requirements.
The rand grew 1.04 percent to 13.3200 per dollar at 11:45 GMT, its firmest since Thursday.

“The rand is firming because our president is making it rain,” Wichard Cilliers, a trader at Pretoria-based Treasuryone told Bloomberg. “He has just secured another big investment, this time from China. That means new FDI inflows.”

Chinese investors plan $10-billion metallurgical complex in South Africa
South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said at a joint news conference with Xi on Tuesday that China had committed to invest $14.7 billion in the South African economy, but neither leader mentioned the $10-billion complexREUTERS | July 27, 2018, 17:31 IST
NewsletterA A

inShare
JOHANNESBURG: Chinese investors signed agreements to build a $10-billion metallurgical complex in South Africa during President Xi Jinping's state visit this week and hope to start construction next year, an executive involved in the project and a provincial official told Reuters.

South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said at a joint news conference with Xi on Tuesday that China had committed to invest $14.7 billion in the South African economy, but neither leader mentioned the $10 billion complex.

Ramaphosa is on a mission to kickstart economic growth after a decade of stagnation and is targeting $100 billion in new investment over five years.

The complex, which is still in the planning stage and envisages building a stainless steel plant, a ferrochrome plant and a silicomanganese plant, is a much-needed vote of confidence in the sputtering South African economy.

Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said on Tuesday that China was considering a metallurgical project in a special economic zone (SEZ), but he did not reveal the scale of the project or timeframe.

The executive involved in the project, who did not wish to be named because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said memoranda on the complex were signed before Xi and Ramaphosa gave news conference on Tuesday.

"The investors for the SEZ project were in the room when Ramaphosa and Xi spoke to the press," the executive said.

Richard Zitha, a project executive at the Musina-Makhado SEZ where the complex will be based, said the project was being led by Chinese state-owned companies, but he declined to name them.

He said the Chinese investors would look for Black Economic Empowerment partners to comply with South African rules designed to address racial disparities more than two decades after the end of apartheid.

The investors were open to investors from other countries joining at a later stage, he said.

"The investors have been in South Africa for around a week and have visited mines to look for inputs for the project," Zitha said.

The Musina-Makhado SEZ is in Limpopo province close to South Africa's borders with Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

The SEZ plans to house plants with a capacity of 3 million tonnes per annum of stainless steel, 3 million tonnes per annum of ferrochrome and 500,000 tonnes per annum of silicomanganese. Those capacity targets are subject to change and will be finalised by the end of the year, the executive said.

A coal-fired power plant, coking plant and coal washery will be built alongside the metallurgical plants, a presentation prepared for investors showed.

Some of the steel output for the complex has been earmarked for export to China, while other products would be sold to countries in southern Africa, the executive said.

South Africa is already a major exporter of metal alloys to China.

Investors are hoping to receive the necessary environmental approvals by the end of March and would then start construction, Zitha said.

Canaf Investments has added $737,808USD ($959,150CAD @ 1.30 Exchange) in net income over the last 8 quarters, established new business relationships with the acquisition of their BBEEE certificate that took a long time to receive, are diversifying the company as per the MD&A below, yet the price is still where it was two years ago, thus the price/earnings ratio is also very low. It says below in the MD&A that shareholders equity was pegged at $4.6 million CAD, which is today’s current market cap value. Almost all companies on the TSX/TSXV/CSE trade far beyond this value, thus giving Canaf an even bigger discount for no reason. Read all MD&A information below as there are numerous things happening with the company in 2019. There were also one time expenses such as BBEEE and company name change that increased expenses just for 2018.

MD&A Highlights (Management Discussion)

The Corporation reports another strong year of sales and earnings with revenues for the twelve months of $14,673,658 (2017: $10,699,117) a 37.1% increase, and gross profits of $1,171,328 (2017: $1,223,110) a 4.1% decrease. Net income for the year increased 15.1% to $623,884 (2017: $541,808).

An important achievement of the Corporation during the year was the sale of 30% of Quantum’s shares in Southern Coal for 18 million Rand, which enabled, and contributed, to Southern Coal achieving a Level 4 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) rating. Achieving this rating will enable Southern Coal to engage in long-term supply contracts with its customers. The Corporation can confirm that long-term (24 month) contracts with both its existing main customers should be renewed during Q2 and Q3, 2019.

During Q1 2019, the Corporation is pleased to confirm that a trial load of its calcined product was delivered to a new potential and significant customer. Trials will be ongoing into Q2 2019, and should this convert to an ongoing supply, the Corporation feels that there is potential to return to the revenue levels of the year ended October 31, 2018.

The Corporation expects to continue to operate profitably into 2019, however management expects revenues to be significantly reduced in comparison to the year ended October 31, 2018, mostly due to global pressure on the steel and manganese markets, which subsequently filters back to demand for Southern Coal’s product.

While revenues and net income have grown, gross margin suffered as Southern Coal experienced increased costs of production primarily due to increased cost of its anthracite feedstock material. The Corporation expects its gross margins to remain squeezed into next year. In addition to pressure from suppliers, the Corporation carried out major essential maintenance and re-commissioning during the year on one of its old calcining plants.

During Q1 2019, Southern Coal made its final payment for the 14 million Rand loan from ABSA bank, which was drawn down in February 2015. Repayment of this loan now releases Southern Coal from monthly installments of approximately 392,000 Rand (approx. C$37,000 or US$28,000), which the Corporation plans to allocate to future diversification or expansion projects. As of January 2019, the Corporation has zero long-term liabilities.

Whilst the Corporation reports another profitable and financially positive year, the board can confirm that it is actively looking for new opportunities that will offer long-term growth potential for shareholders, be it related to its existing anthracite calcining operation in South Africa or another new, and un-related, sector. With zero long-term debt, a strong balance sheet, and a cash flow positive business in South Africa, the Corporation believes it is in a good position to do so. In the meantime, the Corporation will continue to grow its shareholder’s equity, which as of October 31, 2018, stands at approximately $3.5 million (C$4.6 million).

MD&A Highlights

Whilst the Corporation reports another profitable and financially positive quarter, the board can confirm that it is actively looking for new opportunities that will offer long-term growth potential and stability of sales for shareholders, be it related to its existing anthracite calcining operation in South Africa or another new, and unrelated, sector.
With zero long-term debt, a strong balance sheet, and a cash flow positive business in South Africa, the Corporation believes it is in a good position to do so.

Sales for the first quarter of 2019 were low compared to the previous quarter in 2018 at $2,419,633 (2018: $3,273,213), a 26% decline, however gross profits grew to $329,519, compared with $248,562 in the same quarter in 2018, a 33% increase. Net income for the quarter remained static at $187,367 (2018: $187,126), but increased from $108,996 the previous quarter. Despite sales reducing during the quarter, gross profit margin increased due to discounted feed material being purchased during the period as well as savings made through acquisition of machinery, which subsequently reduced rental costs for the Corporation. The Corporation expects profit margins to reduce next quarter, and remain squeezed throughout the rest of the year, as Southern Coal continues to manage increased input costs.

The Corporation expects revenues to be reduced in comparison to the year ended October 31, 2018, mostly due to global pressure on the steel and manganese markets, which subsequently filters back to demand for Southern Coal’s product. During Q1 2019, the Corporation is pleased to confirm that a trial load of its calcined product was delivered to a new potential, and significant, customer. The Corporation hopes to finalise a second trial during Q2 and Q3, and should this convert to an ongoing supply, the Corporation feels that there is potential to return to the revenue levels of the year ended October 31, 2018.

During Q1 2019, Southern Coal made its final payment for the 14 million Rand loan from ABSA bank, which was drawn down in February 2015. Repayment of this loan now releases Southern Coal from monthly installments of approximately 392,000 Rand (approx. C$37,000 or US$28,000). As of January 2019, the Corporation has zero long-term liabilities.

As part of Southern Coal’s B-BBEE transformation program, Amandla Amakhulu (Pty) Ltd, (“AAM”), a 100% black, privately owned, and ringfenced, company incorporated in South Africa, acquired 30% of the issued shares of Southern Coal, from Canaf’s wholly owned subsidiary, Quantum, for the value of 18 million Rand. The financial effective date for the transaction is 01 August 2018.

Quantum in return received cumulative, redeemable preference shares in AAM in the amount of the purchase price. These preference shares shall provide preferential dividends, until redeemed by AAM. These dividends will be secured by an irrevocable direction from AAM to Southern Coal to pay Quantum such dividends from any distribution to AAM. Dividends were declared during the first quarter of $135,441.52

Expenses for the quarter were $119,276 (2018: $167,892) a reduction of $48,616, 41%, although not separately reported in Q1 of 2018 there are a significant amount of increased costs in relation to BBEEE compared to Q1 ofthis financial year.

Canaf Investments registers South African subsidiaries

2019-04-15 10:50 MT - News Release

Mr. Christopher Way reports

CANAF ANNOUNCES NEW SOUTH AFRICAN SUBSIDIARIES

Canaf Investments Inc. has registered new South African subsidiaries as part of its growth and diversification strategy.

Canaf has registered a new wholly owned South African subsidiary, Canaf Investments Pty. Ltd., which wholly owns Canaf Estate Holdings Pty. Ltd.

The new subsidiaries have been registered as part of the corporation's strategy plans, with the intention of creating a diverse corporation focused on sustainable and long-term growth sectors within South Africa. Canaf Investments Pty. will be used to act as a holding company for new South African investment companies.

CEH will be used to invest in properties primarily within the suburbs of the old Johannesburg CBD; an area that is currently benefiting from significant investment and regeneration projects. The corporation sees investment in real estate in these suburban areas as an opportunity to acquire properties that should experience significant capital growth, whilst yielding healthy rental returns. Examples of major projects close to CEH's target area include Jewel City, Maboneng and Victoria Yards, and one of the major funds to invest in the area is Divercity, http://divercity.co.za.

The vision for CEH is to acquire, redevelop and hold properties targeting the student and affordable housing market, with the goal to purchase enough critical mass to uplift the entire area, thereby growing the capital value of the properties in the area.

The Corporation can also confirm the acquisition of CEH's first investment of approximately $150,000, which is expected to yield a 20-per-cent return when fully occupied. Funding is sourced organically through existing cash reserves and local lenders. Canaf plans to develop further opportunities using similar sources of capital.

About Canaf Investments Inc.
