Deutsche Bank downgraded Silver Standard Resources (NASDAQ: SSRI) from Hold to Sell and cuts its price target from C$7.50 to C$4.50. The firm sees an inability to fund 14m oz p.a. Pitarrilla development without issuing equity.

"We estimate that the company will post negative EBITDA in 2014-17, while existing net cash position turns into a $1bn net debt by the time the mine comes on-line in 2017 thanks in large part to the project's $741m capital budget," the analyst notes. "Phased development is another option and a plan to bring in a joint-venture partner is openly contemplated, however, the latter would reduce attributable EBITDA to Silver Standard shareholders. We note that the currently proposed Mexico’s 8% EBITDA precious miner tax, if passed, would materially impact Pitarrilla's economics possible delaying its start or necessitating a phased development."
