Barrick Gold mit Rekordverlust im 4. Quartal 2012

Barrick Gold (NYE.ABX) verkündet die Quartalszahlen für Q4 2012 und die Ergebnisse für das abgelaufene Jahr. Der größte Goldproduzent der Welt muss aufgrund von Milliardenabschreibungen, resultierend aus der überteuerten Übernahme von Kupferproduzent Equionox Minerals in 2011, einen Rekordverlust auf Quartalsbasis ausweisen. Das bereinigte Nettoergebnis (1,1 Mrd. USD) lag jedoch zumindest deutlich über den Analystenschätzungen.

  • The company reported a fourth quarter 2012 net loss of $3.06 billion ($3.06 per share), including a $4.2 billion after-tax impairment charge primarily related to our copper business unit. Adjusted net earnings were $1.11 billion ($1.11 per share)(1).
  • For the full year 2012, Barrick reported a net loss of $0.67 billion ($0.66 per share), including after-tax impairment charges of $4.4 billion. Adjusted net earnings of $3.83 billion ($3.82 per share) were the second highest in the company's history.
  • We recorded a total after-tax asset and goodwill impairment charge of $3.8 billion for the copper business unit in the fourth quarter, as the new life-of-mine model for Lumwana reflects higher operating and sustaining capital costs and reduced profitability.
