Khan Files First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 9, 2012) - Khan Resources Inc. (TSX:KRI) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three months ended December 31, 2011 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website www.khanresources.com.

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • The Company's interim financial statements have been prepared for the first time in accordance with IFRS and in Canadian dollars. Comparative statements, previously prepared in US$ under Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), have been adjusted for changes in the functional and reporting currencies of the Company and its subsidiaries and other IFRS adjustments.
  • The net loss for the three month period ended December 31, 2011 was $932,000 or $0.02 per share compared to a net loss of $300,000 or $0.01 per share for the same period in 2010.
  • Activities related to the International Arbitration action against the Government of Mongolia were lower for the three month period ending December 31, 2011 following the hearing held in September, 2011 on scheduling and procedural matters. Activities have now resumed to a high level in this current second quarter as submissions to the Arbitration Tribunal are required in advance of the jurisdictional hearing scheduled for May, 2012. An eight binder submission in support of the Company's position on jurisdictional matters was made to the Tribunal on February 3, 2012. The Company remains confident of a favourable outcome to the arbitration action.
  • On October 31, 2011, the Company announced that it had obtained an order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice validating service on Atomredmetzoloto JSC ("ARMZ") in respect of its $300 million lawsuit against that company. ARMZ appealed the decision and the appeal was heard on January 24, 2012. The parties are now awaiting the decision of the appeal court.
  • Khan holds 15.5 million common shares of Macusani Yellowcake Inc. ("Macusani") which represents 14.4% of the 107.8 million Macusani common shares outstanding. On February 3, 2012, Macusani announced that they had entered into a merger agreement with Southern Andes Energy Inc. ("Southern Andes") pursuant to which Macusani will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Southern Andes. The proposed merger is subject to the approval of Macusani shareholders. The proposed merger will increase the number of Macusani common shares to 169.8 million, reducing Khan's interest in Macusani to 9.2%. Khan intends to vote its shareholding in Macusani against the proposed merger due to substantial dilution of its interest without clear benefits.
  • In January, 2012, the Company announced that it had received an information request from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") in respect of whether or not the Company continues to meet the listing requirements of that exchange. The Company has not yet received a formal response from the TSX but anticipates that the exchange will render a narrow interpretation of its rules and guidelines. As such, the Company has initiated detailed discussions for listing on an alternate exchange to pursue an orderly transition.

Khan Resources Inc. is a Canadian company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties. Its current activities are focused on the Dornod uranium property in north-eastern Mongolia.
