Pan American Silver reports third quarter 2022 results

Press Release

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 9, 2022– Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ: PAAS) (TSX: PAAS) (“Pan American” or the “Company”) today reported unaudited results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 (“Q3 2022”).

“Our Q3 results reflect the industry-wide challenge of softening precious metal prices combined with inflationary cost pressures,” said Michael Steinmann, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Added Mr. Steinmann: “On November 4, 2022, we announced a proposed acquisition of Yamana Gold by Pan American and Agnico Eagle. This accretive and transformational transaction would increase our silver production by approximately 50% and double our gold production through the addition of long-life, low-cost assets in Latin America, our core operating region. These assets generate strong cash flow, which would further strengthen our financial position and help establish an exciting future for growth and value creation for our stakeholders.”

Consolidated Q3 2022 Highlights:

  • Silver production of 4.5 million ounces and gold production of 128.8 thousand ounces.
  • Revenue of $338.9 million, inclusive of a negative $4.8 million adjustment on open concentrate shipments, largely related to the decline in metal prices towards the end of Q3 2022.
  • Net loss of $71.2 million ($0.34 basic loss per share), impacted by: $15.1 million in net realizable value (“NRV”) inventory adjustments, primarily at Dolores; $12.6 million in investment losses on our short-term investments; and mine closure severance provisions of $9.4 million recorded for Manantial Espejo.
  • Adjusted loss of $2.8 million ($0.01 basic adjusted loss per share) excludes the impact from the NRV inventory adjustments related to the Dolores heap inventory, investment losses and the Manantial Espejo severance provisions, among other adjustments.
  • Operations generated $54.4 million of cash flow, net of $20.4 million in tax payments.
  • Silver Segment Cash Costs and All-in Sustaining Costs (“AISC”) per silver ounce were $14.62 and $17.97, respectively. Excluding NRV inventory adjustments, Silver Segment AISC was $18.46 per ounce.
  • Gold Segment Cash Costs and AISC per gold ounce were $1,184 and $1,614, respectively. Excluding NRV inventory adjustments, Gold Segment AISC was $1,482 per ounce.
  • As at September 30, 2022, Pan American’s financial position remains strong with working capital of $422.1 million, inclusive of cash and short-term investment balances of $187.2 million; a long-term investment in Maverix Metals Inc. (“Maverix”) with a fair value of $87.0 million; and $500.0 million available under our sustainability-linked credit facility. Total debt of $68.5 million was related to lease liabilities and construction loans.
  • A cash dividend of $0.10 per common share has been declared, payable on or about December 2, 2022, to holders of record of Pan American’s common shares as of the close on November 21, 2022. The dividends are eligible dividends for Canadian income tax purposes.
  • Management is revising its estimate for full-year 2022 silver production to be between 18.0 and 18.5 million ounces from the 19.0 to 20.5 million ounces provided in the 2022 Original Operating Outlook. We expect the estimate for Silver Segment Cash Costs and AISC could be marginally above the high-end of the range in our 2022 Original Operating Outlook. Management reaffirms the 2022 Original Operating Outlook for gold production, and reaffirms the revised estimates for Gold Segment AISC provided in the Company’s MD&A for the period ended June 30, 2022. Gold Segment Cash Costs are now expected to be above the high end of the of the 2022 Original Operating Outlook. Please see the “2022 Guidance” section of this news release for further details.
  • The ILO 169 consultation process for the Escobal mine continues to progress with two meetings completed in October 2022. At this time, no date has been set for a potential restart of operations at Escobal.
  • At the La Colorada Skarn project, we updated our estimate for the mineral resource, with 95.9 million tonnes now in the indicated category containing 94.4 million ounces of silver, 2.7 million tonnes of zinc and 1.2 million tonnes of lead. In addition, the estimated inferred mineral resource totals 147.8 million tonnes containing 132.9 million ounces of silver, 3.4 million tonnes of zinc and 1.5 million tonnes of lead. This mineral resource estimate does not include drill results released on November 1, 2022 and July 21, 2022 that indicate a high-grade silver zone of mineralisation.

SUBSEQUENT EVENT:  PAN AMERICAN AND AGNICO EAGLE ARRANGEMENT AGREEMENT WITH YAMANA

On November 4, 2022, Pan American and Agnico Eagle Limited (“Agnico Eagle”) announced that they had delivered a definitive binding offer to the board of directors of Yamana Gold Inc. (“Yamana”) pursuant to which Pan American would acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Yamana and Yamana would sell certain subsidiaries and partnerships which hold Yamana’s interests in its Canadian assets to Agnico Eagle, including the Canadian Malartic mine (the “Proposed Transaction”).

On November 8, 2022, Pan American and Agnico Eagle further announced that the arrangement agreement among Pan American, Agnico Eagle, and Yamana (the “Pan American – Agnico Arrangement Agreement”) became effective upon the termination by Gold Fields Limited (“Gold Fields”) of the arrangement agreement between Yamana and Gold Fields entered into on May 31, 2022 (the “Gold Fields Arrangement Agreement”). The Pan American-Agnico Arrangement Agreement and terms of the Proposed Transaction remain the same as previously announced by Pan American and Agnico Eagle on November 8, 2022, and on November 4, 2022. Copies of the previously issued press releases are available under the SEDAR profiles (www.sedar.com) of Pan American and Agnico Eagle.

The previously scheduled special meeting of Yamana shareholders for November 21, 2022 in connection with the Gold Fields Arrangement Agreement has been cancelled, and Yamana will pay a termination fee of $300 million to Gold Fields in accordance with the terms of the Gold Fields Arrangement Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Pan American-Agnico Arrangement Agreement, Pan American will fund $150 million in cash to Yamana to pay a portion of such termination fee.

The Pan American – Agnico Proposed Transaction would, if completed, increase Pan American’s portfolio to 12 operating mines and is estimated to increase silver production by approximately 50% and gold production by approximately 100%. Pan American has 28 years of proven expertise and experience building and operating mines in Latin America, making it well suited to realize more value from Yamana’s mines in this region, and offer an enlarged pipeline of potential growth projects within Latin America. The Pan American – Agnico Proposed Transaction would also be expected to enhance the Company’s overall financial position and improve its ability to internally fund its growth projects, and presents multiple opportunities for operational and administrative synergies, particularly between Pan American’s and Yamana’s corporate offices in Canada.

2022 GUIDANCE

Based on YTD results and the expected results for the remainder of the year, Management reaffirms the 2022 Original Operating Outlook for gold production, as provided in the Company’s 2021 MD&A dated February 23, 2022. Management is revising its estimate for full-year 2022 silver production to be between 18.0 and 18.5 million ounces from the 19.0 to 20.5 million ounces provided in the 2022 Original Operating Outlook. The revision is largely due to lower production at Dolores and mine sequencing at La Colorada during the second half of 2022 into lower silver grade ore zones. Reestablishing mining from the higher grade ores affected by the ventilation constraints previously reported has proven more challenging than expected. During Q3 2022, the Company deployed additional resources with two development contractors to accelerate accesses to the higher grade ores in the deeper portions of the eastern Candelaria deposit, and the Company now expects to reestablish near reserve grade ore mine sequencing towards the end of 2022.

Based on YTD 2022 results, Management reaffirms the 2022 Original Operating Outlook for Silver Segment Cash Costs and AISC. However, we are continuing to assess the adverse impact supply chain disruptions and market distortions are having on the Company’s input costs, which could result in Silver Segment costs being marginally above the high-end of the range in our 2022 Original Operating Outlook.

Based on YTD 2022 Cash Costs and the Inflationary and Supply Chain Cost Increases impacting the price of the Company’s input costs, we now expect Gold Segment Cash Costs to be above the high-end of the 2022 Original Operating Outlook of between $970 to $1,070 per ounce. Management reaffirms the August 2022 Revised Operating Outlook for Gold Segment AISC of between $1,450 to $1,550 per ounce, which had incorporated Inflationary and Supply Chain Cost Increases and the added capital spending in Shahuindo and La Arena due to timing of cash outflows.

These estimates are forward-looking statements and information that are subject to the cautionary note associated with forward-looking statements and information at the end of this news release.

The following tables provide Management’s 2022 Guidance forecasts, as at November 9, 2022.
