Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors – The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits U.S. mining companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. We use certain terms in this presentation, such as “measured,” “indicated,” “inferred”, and “resources” that are recognized by Canadian regulations, but that SEC guidelines generally prohibit U.S. registered companies from including in their filings with the SEC. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our most recent Form 10-K and Form 10-Q which may be obtained from us, or from the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.
Non-U.S. GAAP Measures – From time to time we supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) with certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including cash operating costs, , adjusted net income (loss), costs applicable to sales per silver equivalent ounce, all-in sustaining costs and EBITDA. We believe that these adjusted measures provide meaningful information to assist management, investors and analysts in understanding our financial results and assessing our prospects for future performance. We believe these adjusted financial measures are important indicators of our recurring operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to our core operating results, and provide a better baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. We believe cash operating costs, adjusted net income (loss), costs applicable to sales per silver equivalent ounce, all-in sustaining costs and EBITDA are important measures in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance.
