anglo american platinum ltd (AMS) Key Developments

Anglo American Platinum Limited Reports Production Results for the Fourth Quarter Ended December 31, 2014

Anglo American Platinum Limited reported production results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total equivalent refined platinum production increased by 14% to 594 koz, compared to 520 koz in fourth quarter of 2013. Rustenburg delivered 106 koz, 36% higher compared with fourth quarter of 2013, Union rose 23% to 43 koz from 35 koz and Amandelbult mines increased 41% to 103 koz from 73 koz. The increase in production was also due to lower production in fourth quarter of 2013 which saw 44 koz of production lost as a result of the two week industrial action. Mogalakwena production increased 11% to 98 koz due to increased concentrator throughput, supported by the mining productivity improvement programmes. Production on-mine increased 9% or 8 koz to 93 koz while toll concentrating activities at the Lonmin Baobab concentrator yielded 5 koz, a 51% increase due to higher throughput. Production from the Joint Venture and Associate operations decreased by 2% to 194 koz compared to 198 koz in fourth quarter of 2013. Bokoni performed particularly well and showed an improvement of 11% and Kroondal also improved with production up 2%. BRPM production was lower by 6% at 51 koz due to the S54 stoppages following fatalities in October 2014 while Mototolo delivered 30 koz, a 10% reduction due to concentrator operational challenges in the quarter which have now been resolved. Mototolo mine had 260 k tonnes of ore stock available for milling at the end of the quarter which will be milled in 2015. Refined platinum production decreased 17% to 574 koz. Refined production in fourth quarter of 2014 was lower than normal due to the build-up in pipeline inventory following the drawdown on inventories during the industrial action in the first half of 2014 and the planned Polokwane Smelter re-build which was completed ahead of schedule during the quarter and is operating at steady-state. In comparison, fourth quarter of 2013 refined production was higher than normal due to the release of pipeline inventory to refined inventory ahead of the anticipated industrial action.

Anglo American Platinum Limited Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year Ended 31 December 2014

Anglo American Platinum Limited provided earnings guidance for the year ended 31 December 2014. The company advised that headline earnings and headline earnings per share for the period are likely to decrease to be between ZAR 650 million and ZAR 875 million and 250 cents and 335 cents per share respectively (or decrease between 55% and 40%). This compares to headline earnings and HEPS of ZAR 1,451 million and 556 cents per share respectively reported for the twelve months ended 31 December 2013. The decrease in headline earnings and HEPS is primarily due to the impact of the five month industrial action which impacted on operational performance. Basic earnings and basic earnings per share for the period however, are likely to increase to be between ZAR 495 million and ZAR 705 million and 190 cents and 270 cents per share respectively. Basic earnings and EPS reported for the comparative period for the twelve months ended 31 December 2013 were a loss of ZAR 1,370 million and 525 cents per share respectively (or increase between 136% and 151%). Basic earnings for the period include a gain of ZAR 243 million (equivalent to 93 cents per share) arising on the final phase of the refinancing transaction with Atlatsa Resources Corporation, an impairment of an investment in an unlisted associate of ZAR 168 million (equivalent to 64 cents per share) and the scrapping of assets of ZAR 294 million, after tax and minority interest, (equivalent to 113 cents per share) following the closure of the loss-making Union Mine south decline section. Basic earnings reported for the twelve months ended 31 December 2013 included the scrapping of assets of ZAR 2,026 million, after tax, (equivalent to 776 cents per share) and ZAR 833 million loss (equivalent to 319 cents per share) arising from the acquisition of properties as part of the refinancing transaction with Atlatsa Resources Corporation.
