TORONTO , April 22, 2019 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. ("Largo" or the "Company") (TSX: LGO) (OTCQX: LGORF) announces that its Q1 2019 financial results will be significantly impacted by the decline in the price of vanadium pentoxide ("V2O5") since the start of 2019 and the impact of the remeasurement of trade receivables under the Glencore off-take agreement during the quarter, as previously discussed in its fourth quarter and full year 2018 production results press release on March 26, 2019 and in the Company's annual filings.
Under the terms of the Company's off-take agreement, vanadium prices are provisionally set at the time revenue is recognized based upon market V2O5 prices. Revenue, and a trade receivable, is recognized at the time of shipment. Changes in the measurement of the trade receivable, which is remeasured once the date that final selling prices will be determined has been set by the Company's off-take partner, Glencore International AG, are also recognized as a component of revenues in the period in which the final price is determined. Variations can occur between the price recorded on the date of revenue recognition and the actual final price under the terms of the contract due to changes in market V2O5 prices. The Company anticipates that the remeasurement adjustment will range from CDN$55 million to CDN$60 million . Consequently, the Company anticipates that its net income (loss) for the quarter will be in approximately breakeven range.
The Company will release its first quarter 2019 financial results on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 after the close of market trading and will host a conference call the following day on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. EST .
