Nordgold Reports Q3 and 9m 2016 Unaudited Financial and Operating Results

London, United Kingdom, 14 November 2016 - Nord Gold SE (“Nordgold” or the “Company”, LSE: NORD), the internationally diversified gold producer, announces an 11% increase in EBITDA to US$131.8 million in Q3 2016 compared with Q2 2016.


  • EBITDA (1) up 11% quarter-on-quarter (“QoQ”) and 40% year-on-year (“YoY”) to US$131.8 million in Q3 2016. EBITDA was US$370.0 million in 9m 2016.
  • Net profit up 4% QoQ and 19% YoY to US$55.0 million in Q3 2016. Net profit was US$149.2 million in 9m 2016.
  • Operating cash flow up 36% QoQ and 40% YoY to US$109.0 million in Q3 2016.
  • Total debt down to US$871.3 million and net debt (1) down to US$559.7 million.
  • All-in sustaining costs (1) (“AISC”) of US$955/oz in Q3 2016 and US$904/oz in 9m 2016.
  • 2016 production guidance reduced slightly to 840-880 thousand gold equivalent ounces (“koz”) from 880-930 koz due to discontinuation of production at Aprelkovo, and limited access in Q4 2016 to flooded higher grade ore blocks in Africa after an unusually long wet season.
  • 2016 full year AISC guidance increased to US$900/oz — US$950/oz from US$800/oz — US$850/oz due to decreased production guidance for 2016 and temporary higher capitalised stripping activities at West African and Berezitovy mines in Russia in order to facilitate pits cutbacks for ore supply in 2017.
  • In October 2016, Nordgold sold its 50% stake in silver exploration project Prognoz in Russia for US$30 million in cash and royalty rights over future production revenue for a total amount of up to US$40 million. The US$30 million proceeds from the deal will be included in Nordgold’s Q4 Financial Results.

“We have delivered a robust financial performance in the quarter with EBITDA up sharply both on the same quarter last year and on the previous quarter this year, boosted by a higher gold price, but also a more resilient quarter’s production. This more positive gold price environment, combined with the considerable progress we have made on our development pipeline including the launch of our new Bouly mine in Burkina Faso, gives us confidence in a strong performance in 2017. We have guided the market towards higher AISC for the full year as we invest more in particular at our West African mines in order to access higher grade ores — we believe this investment will pay dividends in 2017 and expect AISC to reduce during the course of next year, as we continue to implement further cost saving measures. We remain a consistent Free Cash Flow generator committed to maintaining a low cost base and reiterate our full year capex guidance, despite the on-going investment into our portfolio of de-risked, low capital intensive development opportunities.” Nikolai ZelenskiChief Executive Officer of Nordgold
