Avocet Mining's Profit Soars In 2011 - Quick Facts

Avocet Mining Plc (AVM.L) reported a surge in full-year pre-tax profit to $115.1 million from last year's $33.5 million, with profit attributable to equity shareholders of the parent company jumping to $103.42 million from $14.63 million in 2010.

The 2011 pre-tax profit figure included exceptional items including gains on disposal of the Group's non-core South East Asian assets totaling $92.5 million, a gain on disposal of shares held in Avion Gold Corp of $9.0 million, the $39.8 million cost of restructuring Inata's hedge position in July 2011, and the $3.1 million cost of listing on the Main Board of the London Stock Exchange, the company added.

Excluding exceptional items, pre-tax profit was $56.4 million, higher than $33.4 million reported in the prior year, mainly reflecting higher gold prices and the increase in production at Inata.

On a per share basis, earnings for the full year were 51.99 cents, significantly higher than 7.39 cents in the year-ago period.

Group revenue for the year amounted to $280.6 million compared with $254.6 million a year earlier. The company said 2010 results included a full year of revenue from the Company's South East Asian mines, which were sold in June 2011.
