Renergen, the small-cap that packs a big punch!


Renergen Limited (REN)

Whoever said that a small-cap can't change the world? This emerging helium and domestic gas producer are putting themselves out there and doing just that, one step at a time. 

The recent investment case webinar on the dual-listed small-cap stock Renergen Limited (REN. JSE) and (RLT. AX) in Australia showed the exceptional potential the company holds moving forward.

The investment case showed not only does Renergen Limited (REN) hold the rights to fertile natural gas fields filled with an exceptional high helium concentrate, it is poised to become a global role player. The graph shows global helium resources compared to Renergen’s find, which illustrates the magnitude of their resource compared to other role players. The red dots show the helium concentration of the reserves by country and Renergen’s concentration at unprecedented levels.    


In case you missed it, Renergen’s Tetra4 (Virginia Gas project) holds the only onshore petroleum production rights in South Africa. This is one of the key metrics as these rights will give Renergen a 5 to 8-year advantage over its competitors for getting gas out of the ground.

Renergen Limited (REN) share overview:

  • Sector: Oil and Gas exploration
  • Market Cap of R1.6 billion.
  • Dividend Yield: N/A
  • Price/Earnings: 29.17x
  • 52 Week Range low of R7.50 and R17.98 per share high.

South Africa’s energy crises have also seen the demand for LNG rise, and with Renergen’s agreement with Total South Africa, this need will be addressed at Total service station countrywide. This could be a vital distribution network for Renergen to establish its brand across the country. 

Small-cap stocks

Companies with small capitalizations are usually overlooked and forgotten without understanding the potential value the company could hold. Although these stocks are volatile, which attracts short term investors companies like Renergen and Purple Group do hold long term value.

Exchanges like Australia and Canada have seen the immense value small-caps can have on the economy, especially in targeting unemployment. Think about it; a million-rand investment can go a very long way in a small-cap compared to a large-cap stock.

Informed decisions

Helium is not just used in balloons for party tricks people! Helium, which Renergen has a lot of is used from bar code scanners, cooling nuclear reactors, deep-sea diving to medical applications. Everything we use in our everyday lives uses helium, and there is no substitute for the natural gas, which makes it sought after.

The demand for helium and LNG is enormous, which has seen helium prices soar over 450% over the last decade as demand for the gas picked up significantly. Renergen might be a small-cap stock today, but it certainly won't remain in the little leagues for very much longer.
