Iofina’s trading update confirms it is executing well on its dual iodine/CBD strategy, with construction of the IO#8 iodine plant and its organic hemp seed manufacturing facility progressing well, alongside encouraging progress from its CBD extraction research. Iodine volume growth into a strengthening market together with the emergence of potential high-margin CBD opportunities sets Iofina up for another record year in 2020. Management is also confident of achieving a debt restructuring solution in H1 2020. We estimate Iofina is trading at 6.4x 2021e EV/EBITDA, which we view as undemanding given the scope for iodine price/CBD related earnings upgrades over that time frame.
