ALUS/FREYR – Asymmetrical risk with zero downside until merger
Looks similar to HCCH/Fusion Fuel (now HTOO) ahead of its merger when the stock was essentially flat until two weeks ahead of the EGM, then rallied ~50% over the two weeks going into the EGM and another 35% on the day when the merger was approved. We might be in a different market, but redemption value in ALUS is $10.07/share which is where the stock closed yesterday. ALUS filed with the SEC two weeks ago and said the EGM will be held promptly once the statement is declared effective, likely in late April / early May. ALUS is merging with FREYR, a Norwegian developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production capacity. FREYR har hired executives from the oil/gas and aluminum industries (Equinor, Hydro, BP), who are experienced in running large projects. The company has received NOK 181m in support from the Norwegian government so far. While ALUS has $290m in cash on balance, the combined company has a fully-committed PIPE equity issue of $600m anchored by Koch Industries; Glencore; Fidelity FMR; and Franklin Templeton, among others. FREYR is located in a region with vast supplies of renewable energy and seabed minerals (cobalt and manganese). Commercial production will start in 1H23 and the company is currently in discussions with 40 potential customers within electrical vehicles, power production and marine electrification. The industry needs to quadruple capacity to at least 2TWh in 2030 in order to meet demand (Bloomberg). Note Sweden’s Northvolt recently won a $14bn order to supply Audi and Porsche. ALUS will likely get increased attention going into the merger, with zero downside to redemption value. Latest investor presentation:…
