Hudbay Releases Third Quarter 2015 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 5, 2015) - HudBay Minerals Inc. ("Hudbay" or the "company") (TSX:HBM)(NYSE:HBM) today released its third quarter 2015 financial results.

In the third quarter of 2015, operating cash flow before stream deposit and change in non-cash working capital increased to $79.9 million from $12.1 million in the third quarter of 2014.

The net loss and loss per share in the third quarter of 2015 were $11.8 million and $0.05, respectively, compared to net earnings and earnings per share of $46.2 million and $0.21, respectively, in the third quarter of 2014. Net loss and loss per share in the third quarter of 2015 were affected by, among other things, the following items:

Pre-tax

Foreign currency translation gain 4.0 2.9 0.01
Loss as a result of provisional pricing adjustments, net of hedging (6.5 ) (4.2 ) (0.02 )

Hudbay expects to achieve full year 2015 production and cost guidance for all of its operations.

Financial and Operating Results

Starting with its results for the period ended September 30, 2015, Hudbay has changed its reporting currency to US dollars; accordingly, amounts are in US dollars unless otherwise noted. All comparable figures have been restated in US dollars, as per Note 4 of the unaudited condensed interim financial statements.

Operating cash flows before stream deposit and changes in non-cash working capital increased 559% to $79.9 million for the three months ending September 30, 2015 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase was the result of significant growth in production and sales of most metals as the Constancia mine achieved commercial production at the end of April 2015. Metals production increases included 389% for copper, 329% for silver, 45% for gold and 7% for zinc, and cash cost per pound of copper produced, net of by-product credits, was $0.90. While operating cash flows benefitted from the significant increase in sales volumes and a low cash cost, these factors were partly offset by lower realized prices for all metals when compared to the prior year's quarter.

However, net earnings decreased by $58.0 million. This change occurred primarily as a result of a $34.5 million impairment charge associated with equipment inherited from the acquisition of Augusta. In addition, in the third quarter of 2014, Hudbay recorded net gains of $56.2 million related to the Augusta acquisition.

During the third quarter of 2015, shipments of copper concentrate from the Constancia mine to the port in Matarani were principally constrained by truck driver availability, and truck turnaround time due to road refurbishment. Due to these issues and the rapid ramp up in production, concentrate on site increased to approximately 65,000 tonnes at quarter end. With a significant increase in trucking capacity in Peru since the middle of September, considerable progress has been made in moving the excess copper concentrate from the Constancia site to port. The majority of the excess inventory is expected to be sold during the fourth quarter. Since September 30, 2015, inventory levels at the Constancia mine site have declined by approximately 30%.

As at September 30, 2015, Hudbay had total liquidity of approximately $300 million, including $114 million in cash and cash equivalents as well as commitments under its revolving credit facility. This does not include approximately $60 million in expected net cash flow from the sale of excess unsold copper concentrate inventory.

Recent Developments

As indicated, there was an impairment loss recognized of $34.5 million to reflect the orderly liquidation value of the previously purchased equipment and certain long lead equipment deposits in the Arizona business unit. This followed from the completion of a value engineering process in the second and third quarters of 2015, which deemed that certain equipment previously purchased or ordered by prior Augusta management is unsuitable to achieve the design objectives for Rosemont, and that different equipment will better meet Rosemont's objectives while observing permitting commitments. Although Hudbay's valuation assumptions in determining the Augusta purchase price allocation allowed for additional capital spending beyond Augusta's previous guidance, the purchase price allocation valued this equipment at cost based on the information available at the time.

The collective agreements with each of the seven labour unions representing employees at Hudbay's Manitoba business unit expired on December 31, 2014. All seven unions have now ratified new three-year agreements that provide enhancements to wage rates, pensions and benefits. The labour disruption experienced in the second and third quarters ended in late August.

On November 2, 2015, Hudbay completed the sale of Balmat Holding Corporation to Northern Zinc, LLC and Northern Zinc, LLC was concurrently acquired by Star Mountain Resources, Inc. ("Star Mountain"). On closing, Hudbay received 550,000 shares of Star Mountain common stock and $1 million in cash; Hudbay previously received $0.5 million in upfront deposit payments and is entitled to receive up to an additional $15.5 million in future cash payments or, at Star Mountain's election, $7 million in cash within three months of the closing date.

Peru Operations Review

During the third quarter of 2015, mining operations continued as planned and cost optimization is underway. Equipment availabilities are within design parameters and both loading and hauling efficiencies remain consistent with expectations.

Optimization of plant performance remains the primary focus, as more is understood about varying ore types. During September, copper recoveries plateaued at 80% due to a greater presence of oxide minerals than previously anticipated in the upper sequence of the mine. However, metals production targets continue to be achieved as the reduced ore recovery has been offset by higher-than-expected copper grades and ore throughput. Monthly ore throughput increased from 2 million tonnes in July to 2.6 million tonnes in September.

Commissioning of the molybdenum concentrate circuit has been delayed into the fourth quarter due to the availability of key reagents and due to ore characteristics.

Metal production and combined operating costs per tonne at Constancia are expected to be within guidance ranges for 2015.

Manitoba Operations Review

For the third quarter of 2015, ore processed was relatively consistent compared to the same period of 2014. Compared to the same quarter of the prior year, gold, zinc and copper grades were 17%, 6% and 5% higher, respectively, and silver grades were 15% lower as a result of normal mine sequencing. Combined operating costs per tonne of ore processed in the third quarter of 2015 were 34% higher, compared to the same period in 2014, primarily due to increased commercial production at the Snow Lake operations, which have higher unit costs, as well as increased unit costs at the Flin Flon operations resulting from decreased production at the 777 mine. In the fourth quarter of 2015, Hudbay expects to realize sequential improvements in metals production and unit costs per tonne of ore processed as the 777 mine is beginning to benefit from the effects of its planned mine fleet renewal.

Metal production and combined operating costs per tonne in Manitoba are expected to be within guidance ranges for 2015.

Non-IFRS Financial Performance Measures

Operating cash flow per share and cash cost per pound of copper produced are included in this news release because the company believes that, in the case of operating cash flow per share, it helps investors and management to evaluate changes in cash flow while taking into account changes in shares outstanding, and in the case of cash cost per pound of copper produced, it helps investors assess the performance the company's operations. These measures do not have a meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with IFRS and are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Other companies may calculate these measures differently.

Operating Cash Flow per Share

The following table presents Hudbay's calculation of operating cash flow per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014:

Reconciliation of Cash Cost, After By-product Credits (non-IFRS) to Cost of Sales (IFRS)

Cash cost per pound of copper produced ("cash cost") is a non-IFRS measure that management uses as a key performance indicator to assess the performance of the company's operations. Hudbay's calculation designates copper as its primary metal of production as it has been, and is expected to be, the largest component of revenues. Two changes have been made to the cash cost calculation beginning with reporting for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. First, the basis of measurement has been changed from pounds of copper sold to pounds of copper produced. This change has been made to better align the costs of production with copper produced in the same period and reduce the variation in cash cost due to inventory sales timing. Second, royalties have been removed from the cash cost. This change increases consistency between Hudbay's cash cost calculation and industry peers. The calculation is presented in two manners:

  • Cash cost, before by-product credits - This measure is gross of by-product revenues and is a function of the efforts and costs incurred to mine and process all ore mined. However, the measure divides this aggregate cost over only pounds of copper produced, Hudbay's primary metal of production. This measure is generally less volatile from period to period, as it is not affected by changes in the price received for by-product metals. It is, however, significantly affected by the relative mix of copper concentrate and finished zinc production, and an increase in production of zinc metal will tend to result in an increase in cash costs under this measure.
  • Cash cost, net of by-product credits - In order to calculate the cost to produce and sell copper, the net of by-product credits measure subtracts the revenues realized from the sale of the metals other than copper. The by-product revenues from zinc, gold, silver, and molybdenum are significant and are integral to the economics of Hudbay's operations. The economics that support Hudbay's decision to produce and sell copper would be different if the company did not receive revenues from the other significant metals being extracted and processed. This measure provides management and investors with an indication of the minimum copper price consistent with positive operating cash flows and operating margins, assuming that realized by-product metal prices are consistent with those prevailing during the reporting period. It also serves as an important operating statistic that management and investors utilize to measure Hudbay's operating performance versus that of its competitors. However, it is important to understand that if by-product metal prices decline alongside copper prices, the cash cost net of by-product credits would increase, requiring a higher copper price than that reported to maintain positive cash flows and operating margins.

Cash cost, net of by-product credits, in the third quarter of 2015 was $0.90/lb, an increase of $0.49/lb compared to the same period of 2014. Cash cost in 2014 related solely to Manitoba operations, and benefitted from unusually low operating costs and high by-product credits in that quarter. Costs in the third quarter of 2015 reflect the Constancia mine being in commercial production, and higher mine costs in Manitoba as a result of the Lalor production shaft being in commercial production. This was partially offset by increased gold and silver by-product credits and the effect of foreign exchange on Canadian dollar denominated costs in the quarter.

Year-to-date cash cost net of by-product credits was US$1.09/lb, compared to US$1.61/lb in 2014. The year-to-date variance is largely the result of higher production volume and lower cost of purchased ore and zinc concentrates, and zinc refining costs, offset partly by higher mine costs in Manitoba.

Note to United States Investors

This news release has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the securities laws in effect in Canada, which may differ materially from the requirements of United States securities laws applicable to U.S. issuers.

Information concerning Hudbay's mineral properties has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities laws, which differ in material respects from the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") set forth in Industry Guide 7. Under the SEC's Industry Guide 7, mineralization may not be classified as a "reserve" unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time of the reserve determination, and the SEC does not recognize the reporting of mineral deposits which do not meet the SEC Industry Guide 7 definition of "Reserve". In accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") of the Canadian Securities Administrators, the terms "mineral reserve", "proven mineral reserve", "probable mineral reserve", "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" are defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the "CIM") Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the CIM Council on December 11, 2005. While the terms "mineral resource", "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" are recognized and required by NI 43-101, the SEC does not recognize them. You are cautioned that, except for that portion of mineral resources classified as mineral reserves, mineral resources do not have demonstrated economic value. Inferred mineral resources have a high degree of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be economically or legally mined. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Therefore, you are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, that it can be economically or legally mined, or that it will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Likewise, you are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be upgraded into mineral reserves.
