Cautionary Notes

Rio Alto has included certain non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") financial measures in this press release, including WGC adjusted operating costs, WGC all-in sustaining costs, and WGC all-in costs. Rio Alto has prepared and presented these non-GAAP measures with comparative periods restated accordingly. These measures are prepared on the basis of ounces of gold sold. Under the WGC guidance, all-in sustaining costs include total production cash costs incurred at mining operations, sustaining capital expenditures, corporate administrative expense, stock-based compensation expense, exploration and evaluation costs, and reclamation cost accretion. In addition, the WGC guidance for all-in costs includes non-sustaining capital, non-cash costs and other expenditures not necessary to sustain current activities. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These non-GAAP measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Although the WGC has published its definitions, other companies may prepare these measures differently. For a more detailed discussion of these Non-GAAP measures, please refer to the Company's Annual Management Discussion & Analysis.
