COMMENTARY

OVERVIEW

The first half of 2022 was characterised by uncertainty and geopolitical tensions as Russia invaded Ukraine. This led to the palladium price reaching a record high in the first quarter of the year, however, PGM prices have since come down as Russia continues to supply palladium to the market. The war in Ukraine has affected global supply chains resulting in inflationary cost pressures impacting profit margins and raising fears of a global recession. The Covid-19 lockdown in China further exacerbated existing supply chain challenges.

After more than two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, all indications show it is now under control. Our dedication towards health and wellness in order to maintain a safe work environment has resulted in 94% of our employees being fully vaccinated. This resulted in limited exposure to the impact of the 5th wave of Covid-19. Although all Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted we still encourage our employees to continue taking the necessary safety precautions as we move towards returning to normality.
