Great Panther Reports 4Q Loss On Lower Output, Prices

Friday March 1, 2019 08:20

Great Panther Silver Ltd. (TSX: GPR; NYSE American: GPL) reports a fourth-quarter loss as output and metals prices fell. The company lists a fourth-quarter net loss of $3.6 million, or 2 cents a share, compared to a year-ago loss of $1.9 million, or a penny. The average realized silver price fell to $14.80 an ounce from $16.86. Against this backdrop, revenue fell to $13.6 million from $17.4 million. Great Panther produced 951,784 silver-equivalent ounces in the fourth quarter, down from 1,065,773 in the year-ago quarter. The full-year loss was $10 million after a $1.3 million profit in 2017, while full-year 2018 output was 4,170,966, up from 3,978,731. The silver price for all of 2018 fell, however, to $15.56 from $17.11. "2018 was a year of significant strategic advancement for Great Panther against the backdrop of a challenging metal price environment," says James Bannantine, president and chief executive officer. "Significantly lower silver prices and higher costs driven by geology at our Guanajuato Mine in the third quarter reduced mine operating earnings year-over-year. Furthermore, we continued to fully expense the advancement of our Coricancha project in Peru. These factors were the primary contributors to our loss this year. With regard to our costs in Mexico, we took quick action to implement cost reduction and restructuring measures and started to realize cost reductions in the fourth quarter.” For 2019, the company expects production to be in the range of 3.7 million to 4 million silver-equivalent ounces. Great Panther expects to close the acquisition of Beadell in early March.  On Jan. 29, Beadell issued 2019 production guidance of 145,000 to 155,000 gold ounces. Great Panther says it will review Beadell's guidance and expects to provide an update with the Company's reporting for the first quarter of 2019.
