Lydian International Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - Lydian International Limited (TSX:LYD) ('Lydian' or 'the Company') announced today its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2016. All dollar amounts referenced in this news release are, unless otherwise indicated, United States dollars.

First Quarter 2016 Highlights

Lydian continues preparatory activities necessary to move Amulsar toward development and commencement of construction. To this end, a number of important achievements have been completed since December 31, 2015, including:

  • Closing of a $28.8 million public offering of subscription receipts;
  • Entering into private placement subscription agreements for a total of $80 million;
  • Advancing toward approval of the amended Mining Right by the Republic of Armenia, including approval of the EIA and mine design during April 2016;
  • Drafting amendments to the ESIA and preparing for disclosure and public consultation during Q2 2016;
  • Substantial completion of Phases 1 and 2 of the land acquisition program, and initiation of Phases 3 and 4;
  • Beginning the process of changing land status from agricultural to industrial use;
  • Planning for a detailed drilling program to commence this summer at Amulsar;
  • Continuation of ongoing environmental and social programs, along with planning for 2016 field work;
  • Planning and scoping for basic engineering, initially focusing on the heap leach facility, access and haul roads, and infrastructure; and
  • Other pre-construction work activities required before full-scale construction can commence this summer.

The Company completed a number of important financing-related milestones since announcing the $325 million financing transactions in December 2015. Importantly, the Company closed a $28.8 million offering of subscription receipts and entered into private placements for an additional $80 million during March 2016. These proceeds are expected to be released from escrow to the Company following receipt of a favorable vote from existing Shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting scheduled for May 18, 2016 and upon satisfaction of certain additional escrow release conditions. Of note, Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services are recommending shareholders vote FOR the resolution to approve the private placements. Management is targeting receipt of funds from the public offering and private placements during Q2 2016.

The approval process for the amended Mining Right, EIA and other documents that required alignment with the Company's value engineering is progressing as planned. In April, the EIA was approved by the Ministry of Nature Protection and the Amulsar mine design Technical Safety Program was approved by the Ministry of Emergency Situations. The application has now reverted to the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources for final review and approval of the Mining Right. Similarly, amendments to the ESIA are being made to align this document with the value engineering. Management expects to complete the amended ESIA draft and initiate the required disclosure and public consultation later in Q2 2016.

Land acquisition for private land parcels within the footprint of the heap leach facility and other plant facilities (Phases 1 and 2) is 98% complete; four remaining parcels are subject to customary expropriation procedures. Activities to acquire additional land parcels along the overland conveyor corridor and mine access roads (Phases 3 and 4) have started. Also, Management has commenced the process to convert acquired lands from their present designation for agricultural use to industrial use.

Planning was completed for a drilling program to be carried out at Amulsar this summer. The objectives of the program will be to target conversion of inferred mineral resources within the currently designed pit boundaries and increase drill density for mine planning purposes.

Basic engineering packages have been formulated and quoted; awards will be made in Q2 2016. Initiating construction is expected this summer once key milestones of the preceding pre-construction related work programs have been completed. Prior to starting facilities construction, Management will also focus on a number of pre-construction activities such as temporary facilities, infrastructure, and site access. Pre-construction activities to relocate an irrigation pipeline from the heap leach facility commenced in April.

Financial Results

The net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $1.5 million, a decrease of $0.3 million compared with a net loss of $1.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The reduction in net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 is due primarily to lower share-based compensation expense in 2016 and a foreign currency gain in 2016 versus a loss in 2015.

The Company's cash balance at March 31, 2016 was $25.0 million, reflecting net expenditures during the quarter ended March 31, 2016 of $3.6 million. Cash used in operations was $1.2 million, which was used primarily for corporate expense. Cash used in investing activities was $1.7 million. These expenditures were for exploration and evaluation costs at Amulsar as the Company transitions to project planning activities directed at initiating project development. Cash used in financing activities was $0.6 million, primarily related to expenditures associated with arranging the Amulsar project financing.

A complete set of the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the related Management's Discussion and Analysis are posted on the Company's website at www.lydianinternational.co.uk and available at www.sedar.com.
