"On completing the integration of acquisitions from 2006, we now have a stronger platform to continue to grow the business", said Joseph Conway, President and CEO. "We also enhanced our management team with the addition of key senior personnel with international experience and proven track records in the industry. I am very pleased with the achievement of meeting production and cost targets at a time when many other in the industry have had less success. While we were disappointed with the loss for the year, we delivered a record operating cash flow and we have made significant progress at our operations and most of our development projects. We will continue to focus on progressing our development and exploration projects, meeting production and cost targets and improving our share price performance."

FINANCIAL RESULTS AND POSITION

Adjusted net earnings for 2007 were $57.6 million or $0.20 per share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $74.1 million or $0.39 per share for 2006. Including impairment charges, the net loss for the year was $42.1 million or $0.14 per share compared to net earnings of $72.5 million or $0.39 per share for 2006. During 2007 impairment charges of $93.7 million and $5.9 million were recorded related to the Mupane mine and the Doyon division respectively. The value of our Mupane mine was recognized as a result of the decline in the cash flows expected to be generated over the life of the mine. Adjusted net earnings before impairment charges is a non-GAAP measure. Please refer to the supplemental information attached to the MD&A for the summarized calculation and reconciliation to GAAP.

Adjusted net earnings for 2007 were below 2006 as a result of cost pressures and the impact of acquisition purchase accounting. In 2007, the Company successfully completed the transition from non-operator to operator and created the necessary infrastructure to support its multi-national operations. Exploration expenditures increased as a result of the significant opportunities identified within the Company's portfolio.

Adjusted net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $14.4 million or $0.05 per share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $10.7 million or $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter of 2006. The Company's depreciation expense increased by $3.5 million or $0.01 per share during the quarter due to the finalization of the Cambior purchase equation. The Company was also required to fair value its tax assets and liabilities which resulted in an $7.3 million or $0.02 per share non-cash future tax expense being recorded during the quarter.

Net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $8.5 million or $0.03 per share, compared to net earnings of $9.4 million or $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter of 2006. An impairment charge of $5.9 million or $0.02 per share was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2007 related to resource development costs at the Doyon division.

Cash flow from operating activities for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $56.6 million compared to cash flows used in operating activities of $4.7 million for the same period in 2006. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2007 is a result of higher revenues following the acquisitions and gold price increases. This was partially offset by higher operating costs of $40.8 million, higher corporate and exploration expenses by $2.8 million and $1.7 million respectively, and a positive change in non-cash working capital of $19.2 million. Niobec revenues for the fourth quarter of 2007 were $30.1 million and $107.8 million for the year. The Niobec contribution to operating cash flow was $16.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2007 and $48.9 million for the year. Cash flow from operating activities for the complete year in 2007 were $117.1 million compared to $75.2 million in 2006.

IAMGOLD's policy has been to hold gold bullion to increase shareholder value through the appreciation of gold. During 2007, the Company's gold bullion holdings increased by 6,250 ounces to 154,954 ounces. The year over year appreciation of the value of these ounces price equated to approximately $0.12 per share. The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet. Cash and cash equivalents, short-term deposits and gold bullion position totaled $242.5 million as at December 31, 2007 with gold bullion valued at market compared to $218.3 million at the end of 2006. For accounting purposes, gold bullion is valued at cost in the Company's consolidated balance sheet.

MINING COSTS AND PRODUCTION

The annual production of 965,000 ounces was in line with the August revised guidance of 970,000 ounces for the year but lower than the original guidance of 1,000,000 ounces. The primary reasons for the slight shortfall were the heavier than normal rainfall levels in Mali and Ghana lowering recovery and total tonnage processed at the Sadiola mine, and fewer tonnes stacked and processed at Tarkwa, and equipment availability at the Mupane mine. This was partially offset by gains at the Rosebel, Yatela and Sleeping Giant mines.

In 2007, the gold mining industry experienced a challenging year facing cost pressures related to higher labour, fuel and maintenance costs. According to the GFMS's 2007 Gold Survey (a precious metal consultant), worldwide average cash costs have increased 24% over the first nine months of 2007, and reached over $400 per ounce in the third quarter of 2007.

Consolidated gold production cash costs were $423 per ounce in 2007, compared to $321 per ounce in 2006. This was in line with our mid-year guidance for 2007 of $420 per ounce. The year over year increase was mainly due to higher costs associated with royalties, supplies, fuel and labour used in production. The increase in gold price was favorable in terms of higher revenues reported, but the gold price also increased royalty expenses by $13 per ounce which are included in mining costs. The weakening of the US dollar compared to Canadian dollar also increased cash costs for Canadian based operations by approximately $7 per ounce.

Production and cash costs for the fourth quarter of 2007 were 253,000 ounces at $427 per ounce compared to 221,000 ounces and $367 per ounce for the fourth quarter in 2006.

COSTS REDUCTION INITIATIVES

The Company has implemented numerous cost reduction initiatives throughout the organization, including the following:

- Mill optimization and expansion programs at Rosebel

- New copper flotation circuit at Doyon

- Renegotiation of the mining contract and installation of a new mill motor and oxygen plant at Mupane

- Installation of a gravity concentrator at Sadiola

- Process improvements to increase metallurgical recovery at Niobec

Unit costs are a primary focus for the Company and other continuous improvement initiatives at all levels are also being implemented.

RECENT EVENTS

On October 9, 2007, an option agreement has been signed with Cadiscor Resources Inc. ("Cadiscor"), granting them the right to purchase the Sleeping Giant mine after the completion of mining and processing for total consideration of up to C$7.0 million.

On January 31, 2008, the Government of France announced that it would not grant the permits necessary to commence construction of the Camp Caiman project. This was despite the fact that the Company had fulfilled all of the technical, environmental and legal requirements. On March 13, 2008, IAMGOLD met the President of France. The President agreed to further dialogue regarding the Company's interests in the region and to consider all reasonable alternatives for mining projects which the Company may propose in the future. All existing exploration permits remain in effect. The Company continues to explore all development opportunities as well as available remedies.

On February 6, 2008, the Company announced an $18.4 million investment to expand the Rosebel mill. This expansion, in conjunction with the mill optimization investment announced in 2007, allows for an increase in the annual life of mine production from approximately 275,000 ounces per year to 300,000 -305,000 ounces per year and a reduction in direct cash costs of approximately $35 per ounce over the life of mine. This is expected to increase the annual mill throughput from 8.0 million tonnes of ore to 8.9 million tonnes while adding sufficient operational flexibility to increase throughput by a further 15% to 25% should mine site and economic conditions support the use of the excess capacity. The mill expansion eliminates the need for stockpiles, and through the installation of extra leach tanks to increase residence time, will boost metallurgical recovery from 94% to 95%. Rosebel management are continuing with the review of a mine fleet expansion to effectively utilize the excess mill capacity. The investment planned in 2008 will improve production and lower cash costs in 2009.

In March 2008, the Company issued 928,962 flow-through shares to finance the Westwood project totaling C$8.5 million which will have to be spent in 2008.

In February 2008, a joint venture interest related to the Nyakafuru project in Tanzania was sold for $6.0 million. In addition, a royalty of $10 per ounce is payable for each additional gold resource ounce discovered above the current resource base, up to a maximum royalty payment of $3.75 million.

OUTLOOK

IAMGOLD's attributable share of gold production in 2008 from the actual operating mines is expected to be 920,000 ounces of gold at a cash cost between $455 and $470 per ounce, including royalties based on a forecast gold price of $700 per ounce, a $90 per barrel of oil and a Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of 1.05.

Changes in these assumptions may have a material impact on cash costs, financial position, and overall results of operations. The sensitivity to a $100 per ounce rise in the gold price would increase royalty expenses included in cash costs by approximately $10 per ounce. Fuel is a key cost driver as it is used in production during extraction and processing of ore, and, to generate electric power for some operations. A $10 per barrel change in oil prices could cause a change in cash costs of approximately $6 per ounce. The Company operates three gold mines in Canada and therefore a change in the Canadian/US exchange rate by 10% would have an impact on cash costs of approximately $8 per ounce.

In the Company's niobium mine, demand for ferroniobium, a strengthening element used in the manufacturing of specialty steel alloys, continues to increase, supported by growth in China, high demand for pipeline steels, and favourable economic conditions. Demand is expected to remain strong for at least the next two years. Ferroniobium prices have increased to record levels during 2007 and continue to rise.

The Company will continue to focus on increasing reserves and production organically and through acquisitions, as well as focusing on containing and reducing cash costs at existing operations.

Acquisitions opportunities will focus on economic returns, including the ability to decrease the Company's long-term cost structure. The investment criteria will be to increase production by at least 75,000 to 100,000 ounces per annum, have demonstrated exploration potential, and a geographic fit with the Company's existing profile.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION TO THE MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

NON-GAAP PERFORMANCE MEASURES

ADJUSTED NET EARNINGS

Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures and represents net earnings (loss) before impairment charges. Management believes that these measures better reflect the Company's performance for the current period and are a better indication of its expected performance in future periods. Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share are intended to provide additional information, but do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These measures are not necessarily indicative of net earnings (loss) or cash flows as determined under GAAP. The following table provides a reconciliation of adjusted net earnings to net earnings (loss) as per the consolidated statement of earnings.

CASH COSTS

The Company's MD&A often refers to cash costs per ounce, a non-GAAP performance measure in order to provide investors with information about the measure used by management to monitor performance. This information is used to assess how well the producing gold mines are performing compared to plan and prior period, and also to assess the overall effectiveness and efficiency of gold mining operations. "Cash cost" figures are calculated in accordance with a standard developed by The Gold Institute, which was a worldwide association of suppliers of gold and gold products and included leading North American gold producers. The Gold Institute ceased operations in 2002, but the standard is still an accepted standard of reporting cash costs of gold production in North America. Adoption of the standard is voluntary and the cost measures presented herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Costs include mine site operating costs such as mining, processing, administration, royalties and production taxes, but are exclusive of amortization, reclamation, capital, development and exploration costs. These costs are then divided by ounces of gold produced to arrive at the total cash costs per ounce. The measure, along with sales, is considered to be a key indicator of a company's ability to generate operating earnings and cash flow from its mining operations.

These gold cash costs differ from measures determined in accordance with GAAP. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These measures are not necessarily indicative of net earnings or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP.

The following table provides a reconciliation of total cash costs per ounce produced for gold mines to the mining costs, excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization as per the consolidated statement of earnings.
