In this episode we have a returning guest who appeared by in May 2020 (Episode 79). Adam Davidson is the CEO Trident Resources is a diversified mining royalty and streaming company, providing investors with exposure to a mix of base and precious metals, bulk materials (excluding thermal coal) and battery metals.
Adam came through the US Marine Corps into the financial sector and worked for a few equity funds and a mine services company before joining Trident back in 2019 as their CEO and been there since. He discusses how the company grew from having 1 royalty when we last spoke in 2020 to over 20 royalties now and what they are looking to achieve in the future.
"We want to get to the point where a generalist investor… could buy a share in Trident and through that single share have got exposure to the depth and breadth of the mining sector."
"The royalty in its most basic form entitles the royalty holder to a percentage of revenue from the underlying operations."
"We see opportunities in gold royalties that maybe fly below the radar of some of our peers."
"Lowering our cost of capital is a key to this business… Ultimately, where we'd like to get to is a revolver, whereby you can draw down the facility to make an acquisition, pay it back from cash flow and repeat that process."
