This website contains numerous forward-looking statements relating to Coeur’s silver and gold mining business, including estimated production data, expected production and operating schedules, results of operations, reserves and resources, expected capital costs, mine plans, mine lives, other expected operating data, permitting and other regulatory approvals. Such forward-looking statements are identified by the use of words such as “believes,” “intends,” “expects,” “hopes,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “plan,” “projected,” “contemplates,” “anticipates” or similar words. Actual production, operating schedules, results of operations, reserves and resources, capital costs, mine plans, mine lives, permitting and regulatory approvals could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. The factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include: the risk factors set forth in Coeur’s reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q; the risk that anticipated production, cost and expense levels are not attained; the risks and hazards inherent in the mining business (including risks inherent in developing large-scale mining projects, environmental hazards, industrial accidents, weather or geologically-related conditions); changes in the market prices of gold and silver and a sustained lower price or higher treatment and refining charge environment; the uncertainties inherent in Coeur’s production, exploratory and developmental activities, including risks relating to permitting and regulatory delays (including the impact of government shutdowns); ground conditions; grade and recovery variability; any future labor disputes or work stoppages (involving the Company and its subsidiaries or third parties); the uncertainties inherent in the estimation of mineral reserves; changes that could result from Coeur’s future acquisition of new mining properties or businesses; the loss of access or insolvency of any third-party refiner or smelter to whom Coeur markets its production; the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including impacts to workforce, materials and equipment availability, inflationary pressures, continued access to financing sources, government orders that may require temporary suspension of operations at one or more of our sites and effects on our suppliers or the refiners and smelters to whom the Company markets its production and on the communities where we operate; the effects of
environmental and other governmental regulations and government shutdowns; the risks inherent in the ownership or operation of or investment in mining properties or businesses in foreign countries; and Coeur’s ability to raise additional financing necessary to conduct its business, make payments or refinance its debt. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Coeur disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
The scientific and technical information concerning our mineral projects in this website have been reviewed and approved by a “qualified person” under Item 1300 of Regulation S-K, namely our Director, Technical Services, Christopher Pascoe. For a description of the key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate mineral reserves and mineral resources included in this news release, as well as data verification procedures and a general discussion of the extent to which the estimates may be affected by many known environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant factors, please review the Technical Report Summaries for each of the Company’s material properties which are available at www.sec.gov.
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 EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, adjusted net income (loss), operating cash flow before changes in working capital and adjusted costs applicable to sales per ounce (gold and silver) or pound (zinc or lead). 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 EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted costs applicable to sales per ounce (gold and silver) and pound (zinc and lead) are important measures in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance. For additional explanation regarding our use of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, please refer to 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.
