ABOUT LYCOPODIUM LIMITED

Lycopodium is a leader in its field, working with clients to provide integrated engineering, construction and asset management solutions since 1992.  Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia they listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: LYL) in 2004.

Operating across the resources, infrastructure and industrial processes sectors they deliver complex, multidisciplinary projects, through the provision of feasibility studies and advisory services. More specifically: 

  • Within resources, they cover all commodities and minerals and are recognised globally for their capability in gold, copper, diamonds and battery minerals.
  • Within infrastructure, they cover predominantly rail and asset management services to private and public infrastructure.
  • Within industrial processes they cover markets such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, food and beverage, chemicals and energy, sustainability and environment. 

They operate globally primarily through the following subsidiary companies:

  • Lycopodium Minerals APAC

  • ADP – predominantly servicing Southern Africa
  • Lycopodium Process Industries – Pharmaceutical/Specialty Chemicals 
  • Lycopodium Infrastructure – Rail
  • OMC (Orway Mineral Consultants) 
  • Mondium (JV with Monadelphous)

Whilst measured in approach, they have seen steady growth and have been profitable every year of their existence. As a result, they are highly respected by their long term shareholders (and they have never looked to them for top-up capital). With a very strong balance sheet and negligible debt, the business does not rely on banks for financing and it remains their intention to maintain this approach into the future.

Measuring them against their $240 million turnover, and the vision for continued steady growth borne upon the objective to ‘be the best’, and to continue to service ‘clients who trust them’, their success is undeniable.
