Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2019 Results

Net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Newmont stockholders for the full year was $2,877 million or $3.91 per diluted share, up $2,597 million from the prior year, primarily due to the $2,390 million gain recognized on the formation of NGM, as well as higher production from the acquired Goldcorp assets and higher average realized gold prices. Net income from continuing operations attributable to Newmont stockholders for the quarter was $537 million or $0.66 per diluted share, an increase of $540 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to higher production from acquired assets and higher realized gold prices.

Adjusted net income was $970 million or $1.32 per diluted share for the full year,compared to $718 million or $1.34 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted net income for the quarter was $410, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $214 or $0.40 in the prior year quarter. Primary adjustments to fourth quarter net income include $(0.11) related to changes in the fair value of investments, ($0.10) related to valuation allowances and tax effects of adjustments, and $0.05 related to other charges including reclamation and remediation charges, integration costs and restructuring.

Revenue increased 34 percent to $9,740 million for the full year and 45 percent to $2,967 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year. These increases were primarily due to new production from the acquired Goldcorp assets and higher average realized gold prices.

Average realized gold price 5 was 11 percent higher for the full year at $1,399 per ounce and 20 percent higher for the quarter at $1,478 per ounce compared to prior year. The average realized price for copper was four percent lower for the full year at $2.63 per pound, and five percent higher for the quarter at $2.76 per pound, compared to the prior year. For the full year, the average realized price for silver, lead and zinc were $15.79 per ounce, $0.79 per pound and $0.80 per pound, respectively. For the quarter, the average realized price for silver, lead and zinc were $15.49 per ounce, $0.77 per pound and $0.78 per pound, respectively.

Gold CAS increased 19 percent to $4,663 million for the full year and 19 percent to $1,251 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to additional costs from the acquired Goldcorp assets. For the quarter, Gold CAS per ounce increased five percent to $691 per ounce primarily due to higher stripping ratios at Merian and Yanacocha and higher gold price-driven royalties. For the full year, Gold CAS per ounce increased by two percent to $721 per ounce primarily due to unfavorable stripping and higher gold price driven royalties partially offset by higher gold ounces sold and lower stockpile and leach pad inventory adjustments.

Gold AISC increased six percent to $966 per ounce for the full year and increased 12 percent to $946 per ounce for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher gold CAS per ounce and higher sustaining capital spend.

Attributable gold production 6 increased 23 percent to 6.29 million ounces for the full year and 27 percent to 1.83 million ounces for the quarter, compared to prior year, primarily due to new production from the Goldcorp assets and higher grade and throughput from the Subika Underground and Ahafo Mill Expansion projects, partially offset by lower production from KCGM.

Attributable gold equivalent ounce (GEO) production from other metals increasedto 624 thousand ounces for the full year and 229 thousand ounces for the quarter, compared to prior year, primarily due to new silver, lead and zinc production from Peñasquito, partially offset by the classification of Phoenix copper as a by-product following the formation of NGM. CAS from other metals totaled $532 million for the full year and $208 million for the quarter. CAS per GEO increased 10 percent to $858 per ounce for the full year, primarily due to high unit costs at Peñasquito. CAS per GEO decreased 4 percent to $791 per ounce for the quarter, primarily due to higher gold equivalent ounces of other metals sold and a favorable Australian dollar foreign currency exchange. AISC per GEO increased 31 percent to $1,222 per ounce for the full year and 21 percent to $1,171 per ounce for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher CAS per GEO, higher sustaining capital spend and higher treatment and refining costs.

Capital expenditures 7 increased 42 percent to $1,463 million for the full year and 60 percent to $430 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to increased sustaining capital for the Goldcorp assets and ongoing investment in growth projects, including Quecher Main, Ahafo Mill Expansion, Borden, Musselwhite Materials Handling, Tanami Expansion 2, Yanacocha Sulfides and Ahafo North.

Consolidated operating cash flow from continuing operations increased 57 percent to $2,876 million for the full year and 63 percent to $1,208 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher realized gold prices and the inclusion of sales from the Goldcorp assets. Free cash flow2alsoincreased to $1,413 million for the full year and $778 million for the quarter, compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher operating cash flow, partially offset by higher capital expenditures.

Balance sheet ended the quarter with $2.2 billion of consolidated cash and an investment-grade credit profile, issued $700 million of 2.800 percent Senior Notes due 2029 and retired $626 million of 5.125 percent Senior Notes due on October 1, 2019.

Corporate updates

  • Goldcorp transaction: On January 14, 2019, Newmont entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all outstanding common shares of Goldcorp. On April 18, 2019, Newmont closed its acquisition of Goldcorp following receipt of all regulatory approvals and approval by Newmont’s and Goldcorp’s shareholders of the resolutions at the shareholder meetings on April 11 and April 4, 2019, respectively, for total cash and non-cash consideration of $9,456 million in a primarily stock transaction. The combined company is known as Newmont Corporation, continuing to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker NEM and listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker NGT.
  • Nevada Gold Mines Joint Venture: On July 1, 2019, Newmont and Barrick Gold Corporation (Barrick) consummated the transaction establishing Nevada Gold Mines LLC (NGM). NGM is owned 38.5 percent by Newmont and owned 61.5 percent and operated by Barrick. The formation of NGM diversifies the Company’s footprint in Nevada and allows Newmont to benefit from additional efficiencies through integrated mine planning and processing. The Company accounts for its interest in NGM using the proportionate consolidation method, thereby recognizing its pro-rata share of the assets, liabilities and operations of NGM. Fourth quarter 2019 EBITDA for NGM was $267 million and for the year ended 2019 was $501 million. Attributable gold production was 366 thousand ounces with CAS of $722 per ounce and AISC of $883 per ounce for the fourth quarter 2019 and 710 thousand ounces with CAS of $712 per ounce and AISC of $901 per ounce for the year ended 2019.

Projects update

Newmont’s capital-efficient project pipeline supports stable production with improving margins and mine life. Near-term development capital projects are presented below. Funding for Tanami Expansion 2 and Musselwhite Materials Handling have been approved and the projects are in execution. Additional projects not listed below represent incremental improvements to production and cost guidance.

  • Tanami Expansion 2 (Australia) secures Tanami’s future as a long-life, low cost producer with potential to extend mine life to 2040 through the addition of a 1,460m hoisting shaft and supporting infrastructure to achieve 3.5Mt per year of production and provide a platform for future growth. The expansion is expected to increase average annual gold production by approximately 150,000 to 200,000 ounces per year for the first five years beginning in 2023, and is expected to reduce operating costs by approximately 10 percent. Capital costs for the project are estimated to be between $700 million and $800 million.
  • Musselwhite Materials Handling (North America) improves material movement from Musselwhite’s two main zones below Lake Opapimiskan. An underground shaft will hoist ore from the underground crushers, reducing haulage distances and ventilation costs. The Company expects the project to be fully operational in mid-2020.

Outlook

Newmont’s outlook reflects steady gold production and ongoing investment in its operating assets and most promising growth prospects. The Company does not include development projects that have not reached execution stage in its outlook which represents upside to guidance.

Attributable production

Attributable gold production is expected to be stable at 6.2 to 6.7 million ounces across the five year period. The 2020 outlook of 6.4 million ounces increases from 2019 with a full year of production from the acquired Goldcorp assets. Production is expected to remain between 6.2 and 6.7 million ounces per year longer-term through 2024 supported by a steady base from Boddington, Tanami, Ahafo, Peñasquito, and the Company’s equity ownership interest in the Nevada Gold Mines joint venture, which is further enhanced by solid production from the Company’s nine other operating mines and its equity ownership in Pueblo Viejo.

Sustaining capital remains steady, covering infrastructure, equipment and ongoing mine development.

Development capital includes Tanami Expansion 2 in Australia, Musselwhite Materials Handling in Canada, Subika Underground in Ghana, underground development at Cerro Negro in Argentina, expenditures related to the Company’s ownership interest in Nevada Gold Mines, and to progress studies for future projects. Yearly decreases reflect the Company’s approach to only including development projects that have reached execution stage.

Consolidated expense outlook – Interest expense is expected to be $300 million for 2020 from a full year of expense related to the acquired Goldcorp debt. Investment in exploration and advanced projects is expected to be $450 million in 2020 with a full year of spend for the acquired Goldcorp assets. The 2020 outlook for general & administrative costs is expected to be $265 million as synergies of $120 million are realized from the Goldcorp transaction and depreciation and amortization is expected to be $2,125 million.

Assumptions and sensitivities – Newmont’s outlook assumes $1,200 per ounce gold price, $16 per ounce silver price, $2.75 per pound copper price, $1.20 per pound zinc price, $0.95 per pound lead price, $0.75 USD/AUD exchange rate, $0.77 USD/CAD exchange rate, and $60 per barrel WTI oil price. Assuming a 35% incremental tax rate, $100 per ounce increase in gold price would deliver an expected $400 million improvement in attributable free cash flow.

Represents the ownership interest in the Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) joint venture. NGM is owned 38.5% by Newmont and owned 61.5% and operated by Barrick. The Company accounts for its interest in NGM using the proportionate consolidation method, thereby recognizing its pro-rata share of the assets, liabilities and operations of NGM.

e

Attributable gold production outlook includes the Company’s equity investment (40%) in Pueblo Viejo with ~375Koz in 2020; does not include the Company’s other equity investments.

f

Total sustaining capital includes ~$30 million of corporate and other spend.

g

Gold equivalent ounces (GEOs) are calculated as pounds or ounces produced multiplied by the ratio of the other metal’s price to the gold price, using Gold ($1,200/oz.), Copper ($2.75/lb.), Silver ($16/oz.), Lead ($0.95/lb.), and Zinc ($1.20/lb.) pricing.

h

The adjusted tax rate excludes certain items such as tax valuation allowance adjustments.

i

Assuming average prices of $1,400 per ounce for gold, $16 per ounce for silver, $2.75 per pound for copper, $0.95 per pound for lead, and $1.20 per pound for zinc and achievement of current production and sales volumes and cost estimates, we estimate our consolidated adjusted effective tax rate related to continuing operations for 2020 will be between 38%-42%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standard meaning prescribed by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Unless otherwise noted, we present the Non-GAAP financial measures of our continuing operations in the tables below.

Adjusted net income (loss)

Management uses Adjusted net income (loss) to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and for planning and forecasting future business operations. The Company believes the use of Adjusted net income (loss) allows investors and analysts to understand the results of the continuing operations of the Company and its direct and indirect subsidiaries relating to the sale of products, by excluding certain items that have a disproportionate impact on our results for a particular period. Adjustments to continuing operations are presented before tax and net of our partners’ noncontrolling interests, when applicable. The tax effect of adjustments is presented in the Tax effect of adjustments line and is calculated using the applicable regional tax rate. Management’s determination of the components of Adjusted net income (loss) are evaluated periodically and based, in part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by mining industry analysts. Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders is reconciled to Adjusted net income (loss) as follows:

Re-measurement due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, included in Income and mining tax benefit (expense), represents the re-measurement of our U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities from 35% to the reduced tax rate of 21%. Amount reflects the final adjustments to the provisional re-measurement expense.

(12)

Tax restructuring related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, included in Income and mining tax benefit (expense), represents changes resulting from restructuring our holding of non-U.S. operations for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

(13)

Valuation allowance and other tax adjustments, net, included in Income and mining tax benefit (expense), predominantly represent adjustments to remove the impact of our valuation allowances for items such as foreign tax credits, alternative minimum tax credits, capital losses and disallowed foreign losses. We believe that these valuation allowances cause significant fluctuations in our financial results that are not indicative of our underlying financial performance. The adjustments three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018 are due to an increase to the valuation allowance on U.S. net operating losses, credit carryovers, and other U.S. deferred tax assets of $159 and $191, respectively, other tax adjustments of $(7) and $(3), respectively, and a decrease to the valuation allowance on U.S. capital losses of $- and $(15), respectively. Amounts are presented net of income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests of $(11) and $(15), respectively.

(14)

Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share is calculated using diluted common shares, which are calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

 

Earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization and Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization

Management uses Earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA adjusted for non-core or certain items that have a disproportionate impact on our results for a particular period (“Adjusted EBITDA”) as non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to, net income (loss), operating income (loss), or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP, and do not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. Although Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements by other companies, our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily comparable to such other similarly titled captions of other companies. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. Management’s determination of the components of Adjusted EBITDA are evaluated periodically and based, in part, on a review of non-GAAP financial measures used by mining industry analysts. Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders is reconciled to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as follows:

The Company uses NGM EBITDA as a non-GAAP measure to evaluate the operating performance of its investment in Nevada Gold Mines (NGM). NGM EBITDA does not represent, and should not be considered an alternative to, Income (loss) before income and mining tax and other items, as defined by GAAP, and does not necessarily indicate whether cash distributions from NGM will be consistent with NGM EBITDA. Although the Company has the ability to exert significant influence and proportionally consolidates its 38.5% interest in NGM, it does not have direct control over the operations or resulting revenues and expenses of its investment in NGM. The Company believes that NGM EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the operating results of its investment in NGM, in the same manner as management and the Board of Directors. Income (loss) before income and mining tax and other items is reconciled to NGM EBITDA as follows:

Free Cash Flow

Management uses Free Cash Flow as a non-GAAP measure to analyze cash flows generated from operations. Free Cash Flow is Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of discontinued operations less Additions to property, plant and mine development as presented on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The Company believes Free Cash Flow is also useful as one of the bases for comparing the Company’s performance with its competitors. Although Free Cash Flow and similar measures are frequently used as measures of cash flows generated from operations by other companies, the Company’s calculation of Free Cash Flow is not necessarily comparable to such other similarly titled captions of other companies.

The presentation of non-GAAP Free Cash Flow is not meant to be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company’s performance, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity as those terms are defined by GAAP, and does not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. The Company’s definition of Free Cash Flow is limited in that it does not represent residual cash flows available for discretionary expenditures due to the fact that the measure does not deduct the payments required for debt service and other contractual obligations or payments made for business acquisitions. Therefore, the Company believes it is important to view Free Cash Flow as a measure that provides supplemental information to the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, to Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, which the Company believes to be the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow, as well as information regarding Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities and Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities.

Costs applicable to sales per ounce/gold equivalent ounce

Costs applicable to sales per ounce/gold equivalent ounce are non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are calculated by dividing the costs applicable to sales of gold and other metals by gold ounces or gold equivalent ounces sold, respectively. These measures are calculated for the periods presented on a consolidated basis. Costs applicable to sales per ounce/gold equivalent ounce statistics are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP. Other companies may calculate these measures differently.

The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures

All-In Sustaining Costs

Newmont has developed a metric that expands on GAAP measures, such as cost of goods sold, and non-GAAP measures, such as costs applicable to sales per ounce, to provide visibility into the economics of our mining operations related to expenditures, operating performance and the ability to generate cash flow from our continuing operations.

Current GAAP measures used in the mining industry, such as cost of goods sold, do not capture all of the expenditures incurred to discover, develop and sustain production. Therefore, we believe that all-in sustaining costs is a non-GAAP measure that provides additional information to management, investors and analysts that aid in the understanding of the economics of our operations and performance compared to other producers and provides investors visibility by better defining the total costs associated with production.

All-in sustaining cost (“AISC”) amounts are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under GAAP. Other companies may calculate these measures differently as a result of differences in the underlying accounting principles, policies applied and in accounting frameworks such as in International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), or by reflecting the benefit from selling non-gold metals as a reduction to AISC. Differences may also arise related to definitional differences of sustaining versus development (i.e. non-sustaining) activities based upon each company’s internal policies.

The following disclosure provides information regarding the adjustments made in determining the all-in sustaining costs measure:

Costs applicable to sales. Includes all direct and indirect costs related to current production incurred to execute the current mine plan. We exclude certain exceptional or unusual amounts from Costs applicable to sales (“CAS”), such as significant revisions to recovery amounts. CAS includes by-product credits from certain metals obtained during the process of extracting and processing the primary ore-body. CAS is accounted for on an accrual basis and excludes Depreciation and amortization and Reclamation and remediation, which is consistent with our presentation of CAS on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. In determining AISC, only the CAS associated with producing and selling an ounce of gold is included in the measure. Therefore, the amount of gold CAS included in AISC is derived from the CAS presented in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations less the amount of CAS attributable to the production of other metals at our Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines. The other metals CAS at those mine sites is disclosed in Note 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. The allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines is based upon the relative sales value of gold and other metals produced during the period.

Reclamation costs. Includes accretion expense related to reclamation liabilities and the amortization of the related Asset Retirement Cost (“ARC”) for the Company’s operating properties. Accretion related to the reclamation liabilities and the amortization of the ARC assets for reclamation does not reflect annual cash outflows but are calculated in accordance with GAAP. The accretion and amortization reflect the periodic costs of reclamation associated with current production and are therefore included in the measure. The allocation of these costs to gold and other metals is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines.

Advanced projects, research and development and exploration. Includes incurred expenses related to projects that are designed to sustain current production and exploration. We note that as current resources are depleted, exploration and advanced projects are necessary for us to replace the depleting reserves or enhance the recovery and processing of the current reserves to sustain production at existing operations. As these costs relate to sustaining our production, and are considered a continuing cost of a mining company, these costs are included in the AISC measure. These costs are derived from the Advanced projects, research and development and Exploration amounts presented in the Consolidated Statements of Operations less incurred expenses related to the development of new operations, or related to major projects at existing operations where these projects will materially benefit the operation in the future. The allocation of these costs to gold and other metals is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines.

General and administrative. Includes costs related to administrative tasks not directly related to current production, but rather related to support our corporate structure and fulfill our obligations to operate as a public company. Including these expenses in the AISC metric provides visibility of the impact that general and administrative activities have on current operations and profitability on a per ounce basis.

Other expense, net. We exclude certain exceptional or unusual expenses from Other expense, net, such as restructuring, as these are not indicative to sustaining our current operations. Furthermore, this adjustment to Other expense, net is also consistent with the nature of the adjustments made to Net income (loss) attributable to Newmont stockholders as disclosed in the Company’s non-GAAP financial measure Adjusted net income (loss). The allocation of these costs to gold and other metals is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines.

Treatment and refining costs. Includes costs paid to smelters for treatment and refining of our concentrates to produce the salable metal. These costs are presented net as a reduction of Sales on our Consolidated Statements of Operations. The allocation of these costs to gold and other metals is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines.

Sustaining capital and finance lease payments. We determined sustaining capital and finance lease payments as those capital expenditures and finance lease payments that are necessary to maintain current production and execute the current mine plan. Sustaining finance lease payments are included beginning in 2019 in connection with the adoption of ASC 842. Refer to Note 2 in the Consolidated Financial Statements for further details. We determined development (i.e. non-sustaining) capital expenditures and finance lease payments to be those payments used to develop new operations or related to projects at existing operations where those projects will materially benefit the operation. The classification of sustaining and development capital projects and finance leases is based on a systematic review of our project portfolio in light of the nature of each project. Sustaining capital and finance lease payments are relevant to the AISC metric as these are needed to maintain the Company’s current operations and provide improved transparency related to our ability to finance these expenditures from current operations. The allocation of these costs to gold and other metals is determined using the same allocation used in the allocation of CAS between gold and other metals at the Peñasquito, Boddington, and Phoenix mines.
