Vision and strategy

Petmin is focused on the steel value chain and commodities required for urbanisation and infrastructure development.

Petmin’s vision
Petmin’s vision is to develop into a geographically-diversified multi-commodity mining company which delivers sustained and superior returns to shareholders through capital growth and payment of dividends; and to make a positive impact on the communities in which it operates.

Petmin’s strategy
Petmin’s strategy is to grow through expansion of its cash producing assets, and acquisition and development of high potential projects into profitable operations, while retaining the option to dispose of assets at the maximum point of return. Due to the current state of the commodities market, cash preservation is critical and, despite a strong balance sheet, Petmin will in the short-term focus on projects that are cash generating and in the bottom quartile of the cost curve.

Petmin is focused on the steel value chain and commodities required for urbanisation and infrastructure development. The company continues to diversify geographically and by commodity. A mix of quality cash-producing assets and phased investment in high potential projects enables Petmin to reduce its risk and retain a high degree of optionality.

The executive team at the Petmin corporate office executes strategies approved by the Board and sets the tone for the business. The executive team allocates capital and deploys skills and experienced teams to projects and operations.

Operational management is decentralised with a high degree of independence and decision making by disciplined, innovative and entrepreneurial teams. Members of the executive team are all significant shareholders in Petmin.
