Thompson Creek Metals Company Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. (NYSE: TC) (TSX: TCM) (the "Company" or "Thompson Creek"), a growing, diversified North American mining company, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2013, prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("US GAAP"). All dollar amounts are in United States ("US") dollars unless otherwise indicated. References to C$ refer to Canadian dollars.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights (compared to the same period in 2012, unless noted)

Operational:

  • Molybdenum production increased 74% to 7.7 million pounds, from 4.4 million pounds
  • Average cash costs of molybdenum produced decreased 54% to $5.91 per pound, compared to $12.95 per pound
  • Total sales of molybdenum increased 18.5% to 8.8 million pounds, compared to 7.4 million pounds

Financial:

  • Operating income was $17.0 million, a $33.5 million improvement from an operating loss of $16.5 million in the prior year, despite lower revenue
  • Consolidated revenue was $108.7 million, compared to $113.6 million
  • Cash flow from operations was $15.3 million, compared to $3.1 million
  • Net income totaled $0.9 million, or nil per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share

Mt. Milligan:

  • Another safety milestone was reached at Mt. Milligan with approximately 4.0 million work hours without a lost time incident
  • Advanced construction progress at Mt. Milligan to overall completion of approximately 89%
  • Maintained construction schedule with anticipated commissioning and start-up in August of 2013
  • Approximately 95% of capital expenditures spent or contractually committed since inception of the Mt. Milligan project

Kevin Loughrey, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to report continued improvement of operational performance at both our Thompson Creek and Endako Mines, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. We achieved lower cash costs per pound produced and increased sales compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. Metallurgical recovery at our Endako Mine has also continued to improve. The Company's first quarter operational performance was significantly improved from a year earlier, with increased production and sales, and significantly decreased costs. We are also pleased to report that construction of the Mt. Milligan Mine remains on schedule. We currently anticipate commissioning and start-up in August of 2013, and commercial production of copper and gold in the fourth quarter of 2013."

At the Thompson Creek Mine, molybdenum production for the first quarter of 2013 was 5.9 million pounds at a cash cost of $4.18 per pound produced, compared to 3.4 million pounds at a cash cost of $10.34 per pound produced for the first quarter of 2012. These improvements were primarily the result of the planned mine pit sequencing and mining in a higher grade section of the mine during the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012, together with the suspension of waste stripping activity associated with the next phase of production, which began in October of 2012.

At the Endako Mine, the Company's 75% share of molybdenum production for the first quarter of 2013 was 1.8 million pounds at a cash cost of $11.75 per pound produced, compared to 1.0 million pounds at a cash cost of $21.87 per pound produced for the first quarter of 2012. These improvements were primarily the result of the suspension of waste stripping activities and processing of stockpiled ore beginning in the third quarter of 2012, together with lower production in the first quarter of 2012 related to the start-up of the new mill. Although production from the Endako Mine was significantly improved in the first quarter of 2013 from a year ago, production was negatively impacted due to the previously disclosed winter tailings pond management issues. The Company has completed initial remediation work and instituted tailings management procedures to address these issues to ensure sufficient water supply to the mill for future winter seasons beyond 2013.

Sales of molybdenum for the first quarter of 2013 were 8.8 million pounds, at an average realized sales price of $11.87 per pound, compared to 7.4 million pounds, at an average realized sales price of $14.74 per pound for the first quarter of 2012. 

"We remain focused on completing and successfully starting up Mt. Milligan, continuing the operational improvements at Endako, maximizing the value of the Thompson Creek Mine during this time of continued weakness in the molybdenum market, and meeting our previously announced production and cash cost guidance," added Mr. Loughrey.

Mt. Milligan Copper-Gold Project

During the first quarter of 2013, the Company made cash and financing capital expenditures of C$154.3 ($153.0) million for the Mt. Milligan copper-gold project. Capitalized interest and debt issuance costs were C$25.4 ($24.6) million for the first quarter of 2013. Capital expenditures were primarily related to the ongoing construction of buildings and facilities (concentrator, truck shop, administration building, tailings storage facility, and primary and pebble crushers), continued development of the mine and expenses for mining equipment. The Company incurred C$1,294.2 million in cash spend since the inception of the project through March 31, 2013.

The Company is currently estimating an aggregate of approximately C$1.5 billion to construct and develop Mt. Milligan, of which approximately C$240.0 million of expenditures remain to be spent, plus an additional C$40.0 million to C$50.0 million of aggregate capital expenditures for a permanent operations residence (of which C$1.5 ($1.4) million has been spent on capital expenditures and C$6.6 ($6.5) million has been prepaid to one vendor in the first quarter of 2013. The permanent operations residence is expected to be completed in 2014.

As of March 31, 2013, overall project completion is estimated to be at 89%. The Mt. Milligan project remains on schedule, with commissioning and start-up expected to commence in August of 2013, and commercial production of copper and gold expected in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Guidance

Mt. Milligan average annual production is expected to be higher during the first full six years of production (approximately 89 million pounds of copper and 262,000 ounces of gold, both in concentrate), compared to annual life-of-mine production (approximately 81 million pounds of copper and 194,500 ounces of gold, both in concentrate). Production and cash cost guidance for 2014 will be provided once Mt. Milligan is fully operational.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with US GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's financial performance for the reasons described further below. The presentation of these measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or as superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP, and the presentation of these measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the results of operations as determined in accordance with US GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share--Basic and Diluted
Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per basic and diluted share are considered key measures by management in evaluating the Company's operating performance on a quarterly and annual basis. Management uses these measures in evaluating the Company's performance as they represent profitability measures that are not impacted by changes in the market price of our previously outstanding warrants or significant non-cash items, such as asset impairments, that are considered non-recurring in nature. These measures do not have standard meanings prescribed by US GAAP and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information to investors in order that they may evaluate the Company's performance using the same measures as those used by management and, as a result, the investor is afforded greater transparency in assessing our financial performance.

Adjusted net income represents net income prepared in accordance with US GAAP, adjusted for significant non-cash items. For the first quarter of 2013, there were no significant non-cash items. For the first quarter of 2012, the significant non-cash items were non-cash losses on the fair value adjustment related to certain warrants that were outstanding until June 30, 2012.

In connection with the Company's acquisition of Terrane Metals Corp. in 2010, the Company agreed to pay holders of common stock purchase warrants issued by Terrane certain share and cash consideration. Per guidance issued by the Emerging Issues Task Force, common stock purchase warrants with a strike price denominated in a currency other than the entity's reporting currency are not considered linked to equity and, therefore, are to be accounted for as derivatives. The Company thus accounted for the Terrane warrants as derivatives. The Company recorded a cumulative adjustment to retained earnings upon its acquisition of Terrane, and subsequent changes to the fair value of the Terrane Warrants were recorded to the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive (Loss) Income at each quarter-end.

As a cash payment was not required by the Company at settlement of the Terrane warrants, management does not consider gains or losses on these warrants in its evaluation of our financial performance and believes that presentation of the Company's adjusted net income excluding these gains or losses provides useful information to its investors regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations.

Adjusted net income per basic and diluted share is calculated using adjusted net income, as defined above, divided by the weighted-average basic and weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the period as determined in accordance with US GAAP.

The following table reconciles net income presented in accordance with US GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income and adjusted net income per basic and diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2012. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, net income and net income per basic and diluted share represented in accordance with US GAAP equals the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income and adjusted net income per basic and diluted share. All figures within the tables are unaudited and are presented in US$ in millions, except shares and per share amounts.

Cash Cost per Pound Produced, Weighted-Average Cash Cost per Pound Produced and Average Realized Sales Price per Pound Sold

Cash cost per pound produced, weighted-average cash cost per pound produced and average realized sales price per pound sold are considered key measures by management in evaluating the Company's operating performance. Cash cost per pound produced, weighted-average cash cost per pound produced and average realized sales price per pound sold are not measures of financial performance, nor do they have a standardized meaning prescribed by US GAAP and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management uses these measures to evaluate the operating performance at each of its mines, as well as on a consolidated basis, as measures of profitability and efficiency. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information to investors in order that they may evaluate the Company's performance using the same measures as those used by management and, as a result, the investor is afforded greater transparency in assessing the Company's financial performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

Cash cost per pound produced represents the mining (including all stripping costs), milling, mine site administration, roasting and packaging costs for molybdenum oxide and HPM produced at each mine in the period. Stripping costs represent the costs associated with the activity of removing overburden and other mine waste materials in the production phase of a mining operation. Stripping costs that provide access to mineral reserves that will be produced in future periods are expensed under US GAAP as incurred. Cash cost per pound produced excludes the effects of purchase price adjustments, the effects of changes in inventory; corporate allocations; stock-based compensation; other non-cash employee benefits and depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion. Cash cost for the Thompson Creek Mine, which only produces molybdenum sulfide and HPM on site, includes an estimated molybdenum loss (sulfide to oxide), an allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth Facility and transportation costs from the Thompson Creek Mine to the Langeloth Facility. The cash cost for the Endako Mine in 2013 includes an allocation of roasting and packaging costs from the Langeloth Facility and transportation costs from the Endako Mine to the Langeloth Facility. The weighted-average cash cost per pound produced represents the cumulative total of the cash costs for the Thompson Creek Mine and the Endako Mine divided by the cumulative total production from the Thompson Creek Mine and the Endako Mine.

The average realized sales price per pound sold represents molybdenum sales revenue divided by the pounds sold.
The following table provides a reconciliation of cash costs and cash cost per pound produced, by mine, and operating expenses included in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive (Loss) Income in the determination of net income. All figures within the tables are unaudited and are presented in US$ in millions, except shares and per share amounts.
