Largo has a long and successful history as one of the world’s preferred vanadium companies through the supply of its VPURE™ and VPURE+™ products, which are sourced from one of the world’s highest-grade vanadium deposits at the Company’s Maracás Menchen Mine in Brazil. Aiming to enhance value creation at Largo, the Company is in the process of implementing a titanium dioxide pigment plant using feedstock sourced from its existing operations in addition to advancing its U.S.-based clean energy division with its VCHARGE vanadium batteries. Largo’s VCHARGE vanadium batteries contain a variety of innovations, enabling an efficient, safe and ESG-aligned long duration solution that is fully recyclable at the end of its 25+ year lifespan. Producing some of the world’s highest quality vanadium, Largo’s strategic business plan is based on two pillars: 1.) leading vanadium supplier with an outlined growth plan and 2.) U.S.-based energy storage business support a low carbon future.

Volumes are down due to an accident and technical delays. However, management reports improved October results. Vanadium prices remain an issue, but the decline shows signs of abating. Management reports that input costs such as sodium carbonate are beginning to ease and that the company is actively working to lower costs at the mine and at Largo Clean Energy (LCE). 

Financial results remain depressed. The company has made several investments to improve operations including completing an infill drilling program. Completion of Largo’s Ilmenite plant and an initial shipment should not only improve profitability but also diversify sales. The company’s cash position remains adequate at $39.6 million to fund future operations. We would note that Largo’s debt position increased by $50 million year over year but was unchanged from June 30, 2023 levels.
