The Metals Company Provides Third Quarter 2021 Corporate Update

2021-11-11 14:20:48

NEW YORK / Nov 11, 2021 / Business Wire / The Metals Company (Nasdaq: TMC) (“TMC” or “the Company”), an explorer of lower-impact battery metals from seafloor polymetallic nodules, today provided financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2021 and announced a corporate update.

Q3 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Raised gross proceeds of $137.6 million in cash prior to transaction fees
  • Total cash and cash equivalents of approximately $112.6 million, at September 30, 2021
  • Existing cash balance expected to be sufficient to fund TMC’s operations through the third quarter of 2023 when the Company intends to submit its application to the International Seabed Authority (ISA) for an exploitation contract for its NORI-D area
  • Net loss of $36.7 million and loss per share of $0.18 for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, with a large component thereof attributable to accrued expenses related to the amended Pilot Mining Test System (PMTS) agreement with Allseas Group S.A. (Allseas) and higher cost of increased offshore campaign activity during the quarter.

“At COP26, the world’s governments are committing to a rapid transformation of energy and transport. What’s catching people by surprise is that this transition starts and ends with metals,” said Gerard Barron, Chairman and CEO of The Metals Company. “To hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today. If you take nickel —essential for electric vehicle and storage batteries — nickel inputs would need to grow 19 times, with much of this growth set to come from beneath rainforests, our critical carbon sinks. With the capital that we’ve raised in the third quarter and with TMC now a public company, we can play a key role in making sure minerals are an enabler, not a bottleneck for the energy transition by supplying lower-carbon and lower-impact battery metals like nickel and copper from the planet’s largest estimated source.”

Q3 2021 Operational Highlights

  • As part of the pilot plant program, TMC has successfully processed nodules into manganese silicate product and a nickel-copper-cobalt intermediate at XPS Solutions facilities in Canada and announced the commencement of the final phase of the program to refine nickel-copper-cobalt intermediate into copper cathode, nickel sulfate and cobalt sulfate at SGS facilities in Canada.
  • TMC successfully concluded Environmental Expedition 5C, the latest work package in its $75 million multi-year deep-sea research program to establish a rigorous environmental baseline and to characterize the potential impacts of its proposed nodule collection operations. In collaboration with Maersk Supply Service and researchers from the University of Hawaii, Texas A&M University and the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), TMC achieved a world first by successfully sampling pelagic biota at depths of 4,000 meters, marking what we believe to be the first deep MOCNESS net tow in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean. This is the fourth offshore expedition this year, bringing the total number of days at sea to 148 days.
  • TMC co-hosted an event with our strategic partner and shareholder Allseas in Rotterdam, Netherlands entitled “Engineering the Future with Allseas”. At the event, stakeholders were given the opportunity to preview TMC’s polymetallic nodule collection vessel, the Hidden Gem, currently undergoing conversion in Rotterdam and expected to become the world’s first ship classified as a subsea mining vessel by the American Bureau of Shipping. Stakeholders also visited the fabrication facility in Hejningen where a pilot nodule collector robot is being assembled ahead of the wet test in the North Sea and full pilot collection system test in NORI-D in the Pacific Ocean next year. The Environmental Impact Statement for the pilot test in NORI-D was submitted to the ISA in July.
  • TMC appointed Amelia Kinahoi Siamomua, a Tongan national, to its Board of Directors as an independent Director, bringing female representation on the Board to 38% of its members.

Industry Update

  • The International Seabed Authority (ISA) continues to work to a two-year timeline to complete regulations for the exploitation of seabed minerals by July 9, 2023, pursuant to the Republic of Nauru exercising its sovereign rights under Section 1, paragraph 15 of the 1994 Agreement relating to the Implementation of Part XI of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (“UNCLOS”). This notice by the Republic of Nauru obliges the ISA to complete the adoption of exploitation regulations within two years of the request made by the member state. An in-person ISA Council & Assembly meeting in Kingston, Jamaica has been scheduled for December 6 – 15, 2021.
  • The International Energy Agency released a new report in May 2021 warning of a ‘looming mismatch’ between increased climate ambition and the availability of critical minerals needed to realize these ambitions. In particular, the report highlighted that up to a sixfold increase in mineral production is needed through 2040 to meet climate ambitions.
  • In June 2021, the Biden Administration published the findings of its 100-day review of U.S. supply chain vulnerabilities, in which it elevated nickel to critical status singling it out as one of three battery metals deemed ‘most critical’ to US interests — alongside cobalt and lithium — and flagged the establishment of domestic nickel refining capacity as the administration’s number one priority.
  • An Executive Order signed by President Biden in August 2021 set an ambitious target of making half of all new vehicles sold in the U.S. zero emissions vehicles by 2030 and was followed by several industry announcements to build new gigafactories in the US, bringing planned battery cell manufacturing capacity to 650GWh by 2030. The Executive Order follows increasingly near-term bans on the sale of new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in the United Kingdom, China, Norway, California and elsewhere.
  • A declaration at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow seeks to phase out all sales of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040 and no later than 2035 in “leading markets.” The signatories included General Motors, Ford, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz. According to industry analyst Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, if all cars and vans sold in 2040 were electric, it would represent almost 8,400 GWh of lithium-ion battery demand and would require over 5 million tons of nickel sulfate, 19 times more than nickel sulfate production in 2021.
  • Commodity prices for battery metals like lithium, nickel and copper have reached multi-year highs. As a result, after many years of consistent reduction, battery cell prices per KWh are rising for the first time since the beginning of the gigafactory era, according to industry analyst Benchmark Mineral Intelligence.
  • In October 2021, a key U.S. non-partisan policy forum, The Wilson Center released ‘The Mosaic Approach: A Multidimensional Strategy for Strengthening America’s Critical Mineral Supply Chains’. The report acknowledges the significant domestic opportunity to onshore supplies of nickel, cobalt and manganese from polymetallic nodules in the Clarion Clipperton Zone.
  • As part of the ‘France 2030’ reindustrialization strategy, French President Macron recently committed €2 billion in research funding for seafloor and space exploration and acknowledged that resources like polymetallic nodules can strengthen domestic critical mineral supply chains and are key to mineral independence.

Financial Results Overview

TMC reported a net loss for the third quarter of 2021 of $36.7 million, or $0.18 per share, compared to TMC’s net loss of $6.8 million, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of 2020. Exploration expenses during the third quarter of 2021 were $23.8 million compared to $4.6 million for the third quarter of 2020. General and administrative expenses were $13.3 million for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $2.2 million for the third quarter of 2020.

The increase in exploration expenses was mainly due to $12.9 million related to the first two milestone payments accrued to Allseas in 2021 under the amended PMTS agreement, $2.8 million higher cost of offshore campaigns in the 2021 period as compared to the 2020 period as a result of more campaigns undertaken in the third quarter 2021 compared to fewer campaigns in the prior year period, and $2.8 million higher stock-based compensation expense in the 2021 period as compared to the 2020 period due to the timing of recognition of expense for stock options granted in the first quarter of 2021.

The increase in general and administrative expenses were a result of increased stock-based compensation expense of $5.3 million as compared to the 2020 period due to amendments for certain stock option grants to extend their term beyond the retirement provisions, resulting in an expense of $3.9 million and timing of recognition of expense for stock options granted in the first quarter of 2021. In addition, we incurred an increase in professional fees in connection with the combination of DeepGreen Metals, Inc. and Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp., and other costs associated with being a public company of $2.4 million. Overall, our business activities increased and we incurred additional marketing costs of $2.2 million and personnel and director fees of $0.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2021 over those incurred in the same period of the prior year.

Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements

The results in this earnings release encompass the impacts of restatements of previously issued quarterly financial statements as of and for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 and as of and for the six month period ended June 30, 2021. The restatements resulted from (a) certain invoices for exploration expenses not being appropriately accrued as of June 30, 2021 and (b) expensing of options granted in the first quarter of 2021 based on the grantee’s historical start date with the Company rather than the grant date of the options on March 4, 2021. A summary of the effect of the restatements on the previously issued financial statements is included at the end of this release.

Liquidity, Capital Allocation and Key Milestones

At September 30, 2021, TMC held cash and cash equivalents of $112.6 million and held no debt. This cash position is expected to enable TMC to achieve four key milestones by the end of the third quarter of 2023:

  1. Completion of a pilot plant program to process and refine polymetallic nodules into nickel, copper, cobalt and manganese–metals that are critical to the transition to clean energy and electric vehicles;
  2. Construction and pilot trial in NORI-D of the pilot nodule collection system to lift nodules to the surface and transport them to shore, with our strategic partner Allseas;
  3. Completion of the Environmental Impact Assessment of future nodule collection operations in NORI-D, one of the most comprehensive deep-sea research programs to date, and development of the Environmental Impact Statement, a key part of the application for the ISA exploitation contract for NORI-D; and
  4. Submission of an application to the ISA for an exploitation contract for NORI-D area of the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean (“CCZ”), which is estimated to contain 356 million metric tonnes of wet nodules containing high-grades of nickel, copper, cobalt and manganese.
