Codelco Reports Earnings and Production Results for the Nine Months Ended September 2015; Provides Production Guidance for 2016
Nov 28 15
Codelco reported earnings and production results for the nine months ended September 2015. For the period, the company reported its profit plunged by 47% in January to September 2015 from the same period a year before because of tumbling prices for the metal. The company earned $1.2 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the same period a year ago. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization decreased 27.9% year-on-year, to $3 billion. The results were heavily affected by the 18% decrease in copper prices in the first nine months of 2015 from a year earlier, as well as by the 40% drop in the molybdenum prices in the same comparison. Falling prices were partially offset by Codelco's efforts to reduce costs, which also involved the lay-off of management positions and the decision to reformulate Andina's expansion project.
For the period, the company's production rose by 2.3% to 1.26 million metric tons despite falling ore grades.
The company expects production in 2016 to remain around the same levels as 2015, but the company signaled that production cuts could take place if copper prices ‘fall significantly’.
