Euro Ressources Reports Earnings for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- EURO Ressources S.A. ("EURO" or the "Company") (PARIS: EUR) today announced its unaudited interim financial results prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012. These unaudited financial results were approved by the Board of Directors on November 9, 2012. All financial amounts are expressed in Euros unless otherwise specified.

Under IFRS, EURO reported a net profit of EUR 5.67 million (EUR 0.091 per share) for the third quarter of 2012 and a net profit of EUR 17.68 million (EUR 0.283 per share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2012; this compares to a net profit of EUR 5.85 million (EUR 0.094 per share) for the third quarter of 2011 and a net profit of EUR 15.60 million (EUR 0.250 per share) for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

To comply with French requirements, EURO reported revenues of EUR 10.22 million under French GAAP and IFRS for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to EUR 9.97 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of 2.6%. Further details on revenues are discussed below.

The following comments on the financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, are taken from EURO's IFRS Management's Discussion and Analysis:

Three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to three months ended September 30, 2011

The revenues are essentially attributable to the Rosebel royalty with EUR 10.16 million (2011: EUR 9.90 million) earned from Rosebel. The Rosebel gold mine produced 100,056 ounces of gold during the third quarter of 2012, which compares to 99,125 ounces of gold during the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 1%. The 2.6% increase in revenues is mainly due to the weakened euro currency for EUR 0.42 million, and to the 1% production increase for EUR 0.1 million for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the third quarter of 2011, partially offset by the decrease in the average gold price to $1,652 per ounce for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $1,702 per ounce for the third quarter in 2011 for EUR 0.3 million.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were EUR 0.26 million, a 13% increase compared to EUR 0.23 million for the third quarter of 2011; the increase is due to the weakened euro currency for EUR 0.03 million.

The 13% increase in amortization expense to EUR 0.17 million for the third quarter of 2012 (2011: EUR 0.15 million), is due to the weakened euro currency for EUR 0.02 million.

EURO recorded an income tax expense of EUR 3.89 million for the third quarter of 2012 (2011: EUR 3.25 million). This increase is primarily due to the second rectifying Finance Act enacted in August 2012, which imposes a 3% (EUR 0.54 million) additional tax on all dividend distributions.

Nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to nine months ended September 30, 2011

EURO recorded revenues of EUR 30.36 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to EUR 25.34 million for the same period in 2011, with EUR 30.09 million earned from the Rosebel royalty (EUR 25.16 million during the same period in 2011). The 20% increase in revenues is substantially due to the increase in the average gold price for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to $1,652 per ounce of gold (2011: $1,534 per ounce of gold) for EUR 2.4 million, to the weakened euro currency for EUR 2.3 million, and to a 0.4% increase in gold production with 297,093 ounces of gold production for the period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 295,870 ounces produced during the same period in 2011 for EUR 0.17 million.

Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were EUR 0.70 million, a 3% reduction compared to EUR 0.73 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011; this continues to reflect the general decline in activity for EURO.

The 13% increase in amortization expense to EUR 0.49 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 (2011: EUR 0.44 million) is substantially due to the weakened euro currency.

EURO recorded an income tax expense of EUR 11.00 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 (2011: EUR 7.76 million). The increase is mainly due to the increase in revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011, the weakened euro currency, and the second rectifying Finance Act enacted in August 2012 which imposes a 3% (EUR 0.54 million) additional tax on all dividend distributions.

Liquidity and Capital resources

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2012 totaled EUR 3.55 million (December 31, 2011: EUR 5.58 million). All of the cash and cash equivalents are unrestricted. EURO expects to have sufficient cash flow to fund its on-going operational needs.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
