Steppe Gold Announces 2021 Annual Financial Results and Refiling of its Restated Annual Financial Statements

Steppe Gold Announces 2021 Annual Financial Results and Refiling of its Restated Annual Financial Statements

Steppe Gold Limited (TSX: STGO) (OTCMKTS: STPGF) (FRA: 2J9) (" Steppe Gold " or the " Company ") announces its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2021, as well as the filing of its restated annual financial statements for the periods ended December 31, 2020 (the " Restated Financial Statements ") and provides a corporate update. The Restated Financial Statements were prepared following a continuous disclosure review by Staff of the Ontario Securities Commission (the " OSC ") of the Company's disclosure records.

HIGHLIGHTS

Financial Results for the year ended December 31, 2021

  • Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $24,050 on sales of 12,899 gold ounces and 28,622 silver ounces with average realized prices per ounce of $1,837 and $24 respectively.
  • Operating income from mine operations, before depreciation and depletion was $12,435.
  • Consolidated Group Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $4,909.
  • As at December 31, 2021 cash and restricted cash amounted to $71,817; total bank and other debt was $77,920 for net debt of $6,103.

In conjunction with preparation of the Company's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 and as part of a continuous disclosure review by Staff of the OSC in relation to the accounting for the Streaming Agreement, dated August 11, 2017 between the Company and Triple Flag Mine Finance Bermuda, Steppe Gold identified an error in how the arrangement has been reflected in the previously issued financial statements. The Company previously determined that the stream obligation was in substance a debt instrument (carried at amortized cost) with embedded derivatives (recognized at $nil value) linked to gold and silver commodity prices.

Upon further review of the arrangement the Company has determined that the arrangement should be accounted for in its entirety as a derivative measured at fair value through profit and losses. The Restated Financial Statements resulted in changes to revenue, the stream liability and fair value gains/losses related to the liability. The adjustments did not impact the overall net cash flows of the Company. The Company evaluated the significance of the corrections and determined the adjustments were material to the consolidated financial statements for December 31, 2021.

Steppe Gold has therefore restated its annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, as well as the associated management's discussion and analysis. Comparative figures for 2021 interim periods will also be restated in 2022 interim reports.

The Company's consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2021 have been filed on SEDAR. The full version of the condensed interim consolidated financial statements and associated management's discussion & analysis can be viewed on the Company's website at www.steppegold.com or under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com .

All amounts are expressed in United States dollars unless otherwise noted.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Smashes Through US$2,400, What's Going On?

It was another record-breaking week for gold, which surged past US$2,400 per ounce for the first time ever.

Some market watchers are pointing to safe-haven demand as the reason for the surge as tensions rise in the Middle East — concerns that Iran will launch an attack on Israel have been described as "credible" and "viable."

Other experts think there are less obvious factors at play — activity in the options market and Comex net managed money are a couple that have been mentioned. But many are suggesting that we just don't know what's happening yet.

5 Biggest Gold ETFs in 2024

Gold exchange-traded funds, or gold ETFs, have risen in popularity among investors who want precious metals exposure.

ETFs are similar to mutual funds in that they track assets such as stocks, bonds, currencies or commodities; a key difference is that ETFs can be bought and sold on exchanges, making them widely accessible. They provide considerable flexibility in implementing various investment strategies and in building investment portfolios.

Gold ETFs are fairly common today, and are a good choice for investors who want to invest in precious metals without trading gold futures or owning physical gold, such as gold coins or bars.
