Great Panther Reports Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

TSX: GPR  |  NYSE American: GPL

VANCOUVER, July 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - GREAT PANTHER MINING LIMITED (TSX: GPR; NYSE American: GPL) ("Great Panther", the "Company") today reported financial results for the Company's three and six months ended June 30, 2019.  The full version of the Company's unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") can be viewed on the Company's website at www.greatpanther.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.  All financial information is prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), except as noted in the Non-GAAP Measures section of the MD&A.  All dollar amounts are expressed in US dollars ("USD"), unless otherwise noted.

"Our results for the second quarter reflect the first full quarter of Tucano Gold Mine operations under our ownership," stated James Bannantine, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Tucano achieved our production guidance for the second quarter and drove a 165% increase in revenue and a 187% increase in mine operating earnings before non-cash items over the second quarter of last year.  More importantly, Tucano started to show additional meaningful improvement in grade and recovery after the commissioning of the supplemental oxygen system at the end of April.  This key improvement in processing, combined with increasing productivity and a higher-grade mining sequence commencing in August, are expected to lead to an improvement in earnings for the balance of the year.  For July month to date, Tucano is tracking to our third quarter guidance."

SUMMARY REVIEW OF FINANCIAL RESULTS OF THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2019

The financial results for the second quarter of 2019 reflect the first full quarter of results for the Tucano Gold Mine acquired on March 5, 2019.  As a result, revenue for the quarter of $45.3 million reflected an increase of 165% over the second quarter of 2018, and mine operating earnings before non-cash items increased 187% to $11.8 million ($0.04 per share).

Mine operating earnings (inclusive of amortization and other non-cash charges) showed a small decrease to $2.7 million despite the impact of the acquisition of Tucano.  In this regard, Tucano was limited to processing lower grade oxide ore in the month of April until the commissioning of the supplemental oxygen system, which resulted in both lower average feed grades and recoveries for the month.  Tucano also finished the quarter with high doré and refined gold inventory of approximately 7,300 Au oz, most of which was either with the refiner or in transit.  As compared to the second quarter of 2018, mine operating earnings were lower at the Company's Mexican operations due to planned lower output at the Guanajuato Mine Complex ("GMC") while the Company continued with the exploration program at the Guanajuato Mine.  Mine operating earnings at Topia were impacted by higher smelting and refining charges, a number of non-recurring costs, and general cost increases (refer to the following discussions of cash cost and AISC for further details).

Net loss for the quarter was $5.6 million or $0.02 per share reflecting exploration, evaluation and development expenditure ("EE&D") of $4.5 million, and general and administrative ("G&A") expenditures of $3.2 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $3.1 million.

EE&D reflected $3.0 million of Coricancha expenditures, including $2.0 million for the Bulk Sample Program ("BSP") which was completed in the second quarter.  Expenditures for Coricancha are expected to decrease to lower levels of project care and maintenance costs in the third and fourth quarter.

G&A for the second quarter reflected approximately $1.1 million of Tucano G&A expenditures primarily related to the Australia head office of the acquired company.  G&A expenses related to Australia will decrease to approximately $0.5 million in each of the third and fourth quarters, and then be substantially eliminated in the first half of 2020. 

Operating cash flow before changes in non-cash net working capital was $1.6 million ($0.01 per share) in the second quarter of 2019, compared to negative $0.5 million ($0.00 per share) in the second quarter of 2018.  The improvement largely reflects an increase in mine operating earnings before non-cash items of $7.7 million and an increase in net realized foreign exchange gains of $1.4 million.  These factors were partly offset by an increase in interest paid of $2.3 million, an increase in G&A cash expenses of $1.6 million, and an increase in EE&D cash expenses of $1.8 million.

Refer to the Company's MD&A for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 for more details of the financial results.

The Company has included an additional non-GAAP measure, adjusted net working capital, to exclude the remaining conversion rights on the loan owed to MACA  Limited of $3,510, as MACA Limited exercised these conversion rights subsequent to June 30, 2019.

 

CHANGE IN COST REPORTING MEASURES

As a result of the acquisition of the Tucano Gold Mine through the acquisition of Beadell Resources Limited ("Beadell") on March 5, 2019 (the "Acquisition"), the Company's primary metal production by value is now gold as even prior to the Acquisition, Great Panther's Mexican silver mines produced a significant component of gold.  As a result, the Company has changed to primary reporting of cash cost and AISC cost metrics on a per ounce of gold sold basis, net of by-product credits (refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section in the Company's MD&A for definitions and reconciliations of these measures to the Company's reported financial results).  Cash cost and AISC measures on a payable silver ounce basis (net of by-product credits) continue to be provided for the Company's Mexican operating mines as these remain primary silver producing mines by value.

CASH COST AND ALL-IN SUSTAINING COSTS

The consolidated operating results, cash cost and AISC for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflect the Tucano operation from the date of the completion of the Acquisition on March 5, 2019, and a comparison to those of prior periods is not meaningful.  Readers are asked to refer to the discussion of operating and cost metrics for the individual mines in the Company's MD&A for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

Consolidated AISC per Au oz sold for the second quarter of 2019 of $1,154 is higher than consolidated annual cost guidance of $1,030 - $1,130 per Au oz (excluding corporate G&A expenses) for the following reasons (Refer to Outlook section for discussion of 2019 production and cost guidance):

  • Tucano's AISC was impacted by the processing factors noted until the end of April. Tucano also has a seasonal mine plan with higher productivity in the second half of the year. Tucano's AISC is therefore expected to decline in the third and fourth quarters to achieve the annual guidance.
  • Topia's AISC per Ag payable oz was affected by higher than normal cash cost per Ag payable oz, including non-recurring factors, such as a one-time adjustment for electricity charges, and maintenance costs related to the preparation of the processing plant expansion, which together increased cash cost by $2.72 per Ag payable oz. There were also general cost increases, such as higher mining contractor rates and production bonuses, increases in personnel and general maintenance costs, which collectively increased by $5.63 per Ag payable oz.
  • GMC's AISC per Ag payable oz was higher than plan due to lower sales volume which increased cash cost on a per unit basis.
  • Adoption of the new accounting standard IFRS 16 – Leases.


Further discussion of these factors can be found in the Company's MD&A for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.  For the purposes of consolidated cash cost and AISC per Au payable ounce, GMC and Topia are incorporated on the basis of Au production and sales, and other metals produced are treated as by-products.  See the Non-GAAP Measures section of the Company's MD&A for detailed reconciliations and computation of these measures.

CASH, SHORT-TERM DEPOSITS AND WORKING CAPITAL AT JUNE 30, 2019

At June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and short-term deposits of $9.9 million, compared to $50.6 million at December 31, 2018.

Cash and short-term deposits decreased by $40.6 million in the first half of 2019 primarily due to $20.2 million of net repayment of Tucano borrowings, largely in connection with change of control provisions or negotiated settlements with creditors of the acquired parent company of Tucano.  $13.5 million of cash was used in operating activities, reflecting working capital needs of Tucano and the funding of the Coricancha BSP.  Lease liability repayments amounted to $2.4 million and capital investments drew $10.4 million in additions to plant and equipment, including $6.7 million of capitalized stripping and $0.7 million of capitalized exploration expenditures at Tucano, and $2.0 million on the Topia plant expansion project.  These were partly offset by $2.7 million of partial repayment on the loan advanced to Beadell prior to the Acquisition, $1.4 million of cash received upon the Acquisition, $0.5 million in proceeds from the exercise of stock options, and $0.4 million in net cash recovery of the Coricancha environmental bond.

Adjusted net working capital reflects net working capital excluding the remaining conversion rights on a loan owed to a former contractor of Tucano of $3.5 million.  The contractor exercised these conversion rights subsequent to June 30, 2019.  Adjusted net working capital was $4.0 million as at June 30, 2019, a decrease of $57.9 million from the start of the year.  The decrease was mainly due to the $20.2 million of net cash repayments of Tucano's long-term borrowings, $10.4 million additions to mineral property, plant and equipment, and $5.2 million of lease liabilities recognized upon the adoption of IFRS 16 - Leases.  The Company's current borrowings reflect $14.9 million of unsecured revolving credit facilities of its Brazilian subsidiary, and $10.6 million of unsecured debt with MACA Limited, to be repaid in cash.

Adjusted net working capital at June 30, 2019 also reflected a high level of inventory of approximately 7,300 Au eq oz of doré and refined gold, and concentrates with approximately 102,000 of contained Ag eq oz.  As these inventories are carried at cost, the margin of the contained metals is not reflected in net working capital (approximately $2.6 million at prevailing metal prices on June 30, 2019).

Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Company entered into an ATM Facility under which it can sell common shares of the Company for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $25.0 million.  The Company is also actively reviewing and considering other financing options, including external debt and equity issuances to fund its current business plan and refinance debt repaid during the past quarter in connection with the Acquisition.  With the completion of the Coricancha BSP, improved processing at Tucano since the commissioning of the supplemental oxygen system at the end of April, and Tucano's mining operations entering the higher productivity dry season, capital needs will not be as significant in the third and fourth quarters.

OUTLOOK 

Great Panther's focus for the second half of 2019 will continue to be the optimization of Tucano including identifying and implementing cost saving and efficiency measures to improve profitability and reduce cash cost and AISC.  With the successful commissioning of the supplemental oxygen system at the end of April 2019 and the upcoming anticipated dry season which has a lower strip ratio and higher material movement, Tucano's production output and mine operating earnings are expected to increase.  In addition, the Company is continuing to work on realizing cost synergies by rationalizing G&A costs of the Australian head office of the acquired company, expected to be substantially eliminated by the end of the first quarter of 2020.

Great Panther is also advancing an exploration program focused on near mine exploration targets at Tucano, and is also developing a program aimed at capitalizing on Tucano's significant longer-term exploration potential.

Great Panther continues to evaluate its head office resources and needed skills and competencies to facilitate the integration of Tucano and ongoing oversight and management of all Great Panther's operations and projects.  In this regard, during the second quarter of 2019, the Company added a Vice President, Projects and Technical Services and a Director of Exploration, Brazil.

At GMC, the Company is continuing its multi-mine optimization strategy under which production is being sourced entirely from the San Ignacio Mine, while the exploration program at Guanajuato will continue in the third quarter with the objective of identifying in-situ blocks of higher-grade mineralization in order to bring the Guanajuato Mine back into production in 2020.  The Company is planning to complete and announce an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate for GMC based on this year's exploration program by the first quarter of 2020.

At Topia, the project to increase plant capacity has been delayed as structural engineering analysis recently determined the need for engineered rehabilitation of the foundation of the plant.  As a result, the completion date for the plant expansion has been revised to 2020.

The Company is maintaining its 2019 production guidance, however due to the above noted delay at Topia, the Mexican operations (GMC & Topia combined) are anticipated to produce at the lower end of the guidance.

Cash cost per gold ounce sold, AISC per gold ounce sold excluding corporate G&A expenditures, and AISC per gold ounce sold are non-GAAP measures.  Refer to the Non-GAAP Measures section of the Company's MD&A for an explanation of these measures and reconciliation to the Company's reported financial results in accordance with IFRS.  As these are not standardized measures, they may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures used by others. 

 

Tucano's production profile is significantly weighted to the second half of the year due to the dry season which enables higher rates of mining productivity and lower strip ratios in the open pits.  The quarterly production profile for the remaining quarters of the fiscal year remains unchanged and is expected to be as follows:

It is cautioned that cash cost and AISC are very sensitive to the MXN and BRL foreign exchange rates, and metal prices through the computation of by-product credits.  To manage the Company's exposure to changes in the BRL and MXN exchange rates, the Company may enter into forward contracts for these foreign currencies against USD at various rates and maturity dates.

The Company is revising its guidance for non-sustaining capital expenditures and EE&D expenses for the year ended December 31, 2019:

The above noted guidance has been revised due to a reclassification of Tucano near mine exploration activities as non-sustaining capital expenditure (as this work is expected to identify new reserves), the delay in the plant expansion program at Topia, as well as the previously noted revised timing on the anticipated restart of Coricancha to 2020, which is subject to securing funding for the initial capital costs on favourable terms, and the ongoing successful optimization of the Tucano Gold Mine including the achievement of the mine's production guidance for the second half of the year.
