Jack Lifton with Neo Performance’s Constantine Karayannopoulos on the state of the rare earths market

In this InvestorIntel interview, Jack Lifton speaks with Constantine Karayannopoulos, President, CEO & Director of Neo Performance Materials Inc. (TSX: NEO). Jack asks Constantine where Neo’s future expansion will come from, what non-Chinese competitors they face and whether he thinks there will be any Canadian rare earth mines operational within this decade.

In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Jack is of the opinion that no one has the range of product specialization as Neo and that they are the “go-to company for rare earth products” outside of China. Neo Performance recently announced strong Q1 financial results with revenue higher by 44.3% YoY and EBITDA higher by 132.6% YoY. With demand, volumes, and margins return to robust, pre-COVID levels across most of Neo’s businesses, Constantine said, the company has “bounced back very handsomely”. With “Europe in the driver’s seat in terms of EV supply chain”, Constantine called Europe as the high growth market for Neo and commented on the potential opportunity for Neo if Foxconn enters into the electric car assembly business.

    “…the election cycle…”

    Thanks to the CEO of Neo for being the first person I have heard from a RE company to publically mention this specific issue as having a potential influence on the RE sector in the US. Again, I think it will be a near-term driving force for future US critical metals movements, but it is understandably a taboo issue for RE company management to get into.

    Thanks for doing the interview.
