Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Investigation Of Kinross Gold Corporation

NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross" or the "Company") (NYSE: KGC).

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO)

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) the drilling results from the Kinross Tasiast property yielded mostly low-grade ores; (2) because of Kinross' low-grade yields from Tasiast, the Company would need to modify its mining processes so as to minimize operating costs and maximize profitability; (3) because of the situation described above, applicable accounting standards required the Company to record an impairment in the value of goodwill that Kinross attributed to the Tasiast property; and (4) the Company's financial statements were not fairly presented in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards and were materially false and misleading.

On January 16, 2012, Kinross issued a press release announcing its preliminary 2011 results and 2012 outlook. The press release noted that the Company's three major growth projects at Tasiast, Fruta del Norte and Lobo-Marte would require significant capital expenditures. Moreover, as drilling results were coming in for the Tasiast project, Kinross had elected to conduct a comprehensive capital and project optimization process with the aim of efficiently advancing development of the project and generating enhanced returns on capital. The press release also disclosed that "[i]n view of the Company's evolving understanding of Tasiast project parameters, and market conditions, including industry-wide increases in capital and operating costs, the Company expects to record a material non-cash accounting charge, primarily relating to the goodwill recorded for the Tasiast mine," which totaled $4.6 billion in September 30, 2011. In response to the Company's extremely disappointing announcement, the price of Kinross' common stock plunged nearly 19%, from $12.65 per share on January 13, 2012 to $10.27 on January 17, 2012.
