May 3 13
Nickel Asia Corporation reported unaudited consolidated financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. For the quarter, the company reported an attributable net income (net of minority interests) of PHP 100.3 million as compared to PHP 286.0 million reported during the same period last year. The weaker earnings was mainly the result of lower prices for ore products sold on the basis of prices quoted in the London Metal Exchange (LME), a stronger peso and higher depreciation expenses. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to PHP 629.8 million compared to PHP 932.4 million in the prior year. Total revenues during the comparable first quarter periods decreased from PHP 1.75 billion in 2012 to PHP 1.40 billion in 2013. Basic and diluted earnings per share were PHP 0.05, compared to PHP 0.14 for the last year. Income before income tax was PHP 321.106 million, compared to PHP 694.878 million for the last year.

The corresponding figures for 2012 were 223,000 WMT, 655,000 WMT and 942,000 WMT, respectively. Shipments during the first quarter were primarily from the company's Rio Tuba and Taganito mines, as operations at the Taganaan and Cagdianao mines typically commence in the second quarter following the rainy season. The Rio Tuba mine shipped and delivered 477,000 WMT of saprolite ore and one million WMT of limonite ore, while the Taganito mine shipped a total of 197,000 WMT of saprolite ore.
