VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endeavour Silver Corp. (“Endeavour” or the “Company”) (NYSE: EXK; TSX: EDR) is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. All dollar amounts are in US dollars (US$).

“Our first quarter performance was strong, putting us on track to achieve our 2022 production guidance,” stated Dan Dickson, CEO of Endeavour Silver. “High-grade ore at Guanacevi was a driving force and is expected to continue throughout the balance of the year, while production at Bolanitos remains solid. Industry-wide inflation is a growing challenge and we continue to look for ways to mitigate its negative impact.”

Added Mr. Dickson, “Looking ahead to the second quarter, we are targeting two major milestones: securing debt financing for Terronera and closing the Pitarrilla transaction. This acquisition, which is fully financed, is expected to close this quarter following receipt of approval from the Mexican Federal Economics Competition Commission. After the deal closes, drilling will commence to verify Pitarrilla’s historical data and update the historical resource. This will become a key focus for us for the balance of 2022.”

Q1 2022 Highlights

  • Strong Production: 1,314,955 ounces (oz) of silver and 8,695 oz of gold for 2.0 million oz silver equivalent (AgEq)(1).

  • Significant Growth in Net Revenue: Net revenue of $57.7 million from the sale of 1,717,768 oz of silver and 8,381 oz of gold at average realized prices of $24.38 per oz silver and $1,970 per oz gold.

  • Slight Decline in Net Earnings: Net earnings of $11.7 million, or $0.07 per share, down from net earnings of $12.2 million, or $0.08 per share in Q1 2021. Mine operating earnings of $20.3 million, up from mine operating earnings of $5.7 million in Q1 2021.

  • Improved Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation & Amortization (EBITDA)(2): $25.6 million, an increase of 7% from Q1 2021.

  • Increased Cash Flow: $20.6 million in operating cash flow before working capital changes(2), an increase of 293%. Mine operating cash flow before taxes(2) increased 101% to $26.7 million.

  • Higher Costs Due to Industry-Wide Inflation: Cash costs(2) of $10.21 per oz payable silver and all-in sustaining costs(2) of $20.90 per oz payable silver, net of gold credits. Cash costs(2) were slightly above guidance due to increased labour, power and consumables costs.

  • Healthy Balance Sheet: Cash position of $151.0 million and working capital(2) $168.4 million as at March 31, 2022.

  • Guanacevi Continued to Outperform: Production exceeded plan driven by higher grades.

  • Bolañitos Remained Steady: Strong silver production, higher silver grades and increased throughput were offset by lower than anticipated gold production and lower gold grades.

  • Reduced Metal Inventories: Sold 1,717,768 oz silver and 8,381 oz gold during the quarter. Management significantly reduced silver inventory and slightly increased gold inventory during the quarter and carried metal inventory at quarter end totaling 608,788 oz silver and 1,911 oz gold of bullion inventory and 59,594 oz silver and 1,931 oz gold in concentrate inventory.

  • Advanced the Terronera Project: The Terronera project continued to progress as work continued on final detailed engineering, early earth works, critical contracts and the procurement of long lead items. The Company intends to make a formal construction decision subject to completion of a financing package and receipt of additional amended permits in the coming months.

  • Announced Definitive Agreement to Acquire the Pitarrilla Project: Endeavour’s acquisition of Pitarrilla, one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world, is expected to close in Q2 2022.

  • Completed $46.0 Million Bought Deal Financing: On March 22, 2022 Endeavour completed a prospectus offering for the issuance of 9,293,150 common shares at a price of $4.95 per common share for gross proceeds of $46.0 million. The Company plans to use the net proceeds to pay the $35 million cash consideration payable to SSR Mining Inc. on completion of the Company’s acquisition of the Pitarrilla project and for the Company’s general corporate purposes and working capital.

(1) Silver equivalent (AgEq) is calculated using an 80:1 silver:gold ratio.

(2) These are non-IFRS financial measures and ratios. Further details on these non-IFRS financial measures and ratios are provided at the end of this press release and in the MD&A accompanying the Company’s financial statements, which can be viewed on the Company’s website, on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, net revenue, net of $0.7 million of smelting and refining costs, increased by 67% to $57.7 million (Q1 2021: $34.5 million).

Gross sales of $58.4 million in Q1 2022 represented a 66% increase over the $35.1 million in Q1 2021. Silver oz sold increased by 176%, due to both increased silver production and the sale of the larger finished goods inventory held at December 31, 2021. There was a 10% decrease in the realized silver price, resulting in a 148% increase in proceeds from silver sales. Gold oz sold decreased by 21% with a 16% increase in the realized gold price, resulting in a 9% decrease in proceeds from gold sales. During the period, the Company sold 1,717,768 oz silver and 8,381 oz gold for realized prices of $24.38 and $1,970 per oz, respectively, compared to Q1 2021 sales of 623,379 oz silver and 10,663 oz gold for realized prices of $27.17 and $1,703 per oz, respectively. In Q1 2022, London spot prices for silver and gold averaged $24.01 and $1,877, respectively.

The Company significantly decreased its finished goods silver inventory and slightly increased its finished goods gold inventory to 668,382 oz and 3,841 oz, respectively, at March 31, 2022 compared to 1,082,610 oz silver and 3,674 oz gold at December 31, 2021. The cost allocated to these finished goods was $13.5 million at March 31, 2022 compared to $15.6 million at December 31, 2021. At March 31, 2022, the finished goods inventory fair market value was $24.1 million, compared to $31.7 million at December 31, 2021. Earnings and other financial metrics, including mine operating cash flow(2), operating cash flow(2) and EBITDA(2) were impacted by the sale during Q1 2022 of the increased bullion inventory held at year end.

After cost of sales of $37.4 million (Q1 2021 - $28.8 million), an increase of 30%, mine operating earnings were $20.3 million (Q1 2021 - $5.7 million). The increase in cost of sales was impacted by both an increase in the quantity of silver ounces sold during the period, increased production and increased labour, power and consumables costs with significantly higher royalty costs, partially offset by improved productivity at the Guanaceví and Bolañitos operations. Royalties increased 75% to $4.3 million primarily due to the increase in silver ounces sold during the period.

The Company had operating earnings of $12.6 million (Q1 2021: $14.3 million) after exploration and evaluation costs of $3.2 million (Q1 2021: $4.1 million), general and administrative costs of $4.3 million (Q1 2021: $3.5 million), and care and maintenance cost of $0.2 million (Q1 2021: $0.5 million). Operating earnings in Q1 2021 were also positively impacted by an impairment reversal of $16.8 million as a result of the valuation assessment done for El Cubo mine and related assets upon classification as held for sale.

Earnings before income taxes were $18.9 million (Q1 2021: $16.0 million) after finance costs of $0.3 million (Q1 2021: $0.3 million), a foreign exchange gain of $0.8 million (Q1 2021: loss of $0.7 million), and investment and other income of $5.8 million (Q1 2021: $2.7 million). The investment and other income during Q1 2022 primarily resulted from an unrealized gain on marketable securities and warrants of $5.4 million (Q1 2021: $2.5 million).

The Company realized net earnings for the period of $11.7 million (Q1 2021: $12.2 million) after an income tax expense of $7.2 million (Q1 2021: $3.8 million). Current income tax expense increased to $1.0 million (Q1 2021 - $0.7 million) due to increased profitability impacting the special mining duty, while deferred income tax expense of $6.2 million is primarily due to the estimated use of loss carryforwards to reduce taxable income generated at both Guanacevi and Bolanitos (Q1 2021 – $3.1 million).

Direct operating costs(2) on a per tonne basis increased to $122.86, up 9% compared with Q1 2021 due to higher operating costs at Guanaceví and Bolañitos. Guanaceví and Bolañitos have seen increased labour, power and consumables costs and at Guanaceví, increased third party ore purchased and operating development have increased compared to the prior year.

Consolidated cash costs per oz, net of by-product credits, increased to $10.21 primarily due to the higher direct costs per tonne and lower gold credit driven by lower gold production compared to Q1 2021. AISC increased by 5% on a per oz basis compared to Q1 2021 as a result of higher cash costs, increased capital expenditures at Guanaceví, increased allocated general and administrative costs, offset by increased production.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States private securities litigation reform act of 1995 and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. Such forward-looking statements and information herein include but are not limited to statements regarding Endeavour’s anticipated performance in 2022 including changes in mining operations and forecasts of production levels, anticipated production costs and all-in sustaining costs, the timing and results of various activities and the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on operations. The Company does not intend to and does not assume any obligation to update such forward-looking statements or information, other than as required by applicable law.

Forward-looking statements or information involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, production levels, performance or achievements of Endeavour and its operations to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements. Such factors include but are not limited to the ultimate impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on operations and results, changes in production and costs guidance, national and local governments, legislation, taxation, controls, regulations and political or economic developments in Canada and Mexico; financial risks due to precious metals prices, operating or technical difficulties in mineral exploration, development and mining activities; risks and hazards of mineral exploration, development and mining; the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development, risks in obtaining necessary licenses and permits, and challenges to the Company’s title to properties; as well as those factors described in the section “risk factors” contained in the Company’s most recent form 40F/Annual Information Form filed with the S.E.C. and Canadian securities regulatory authorities.

Forward-looking statements are based on assumptions management believes to be reasonable, including but not limited to: the continued operation of the Company’s mining operations, no material adverse change in the market price of commodities, mining operations will operate and the mining products will be completed in accordance with management’s expectations and achieve their stated production outcomes, and such other assumptions and factors as set out herein. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements or information, there may be other factors that cause results to be materially different from those anticipated, described, estimated, assessed or intended. There can be no assurance that any forward-looking statements or information will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements or information. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements or information.
