“Net income in the first quarter reached US$207.5, 8% lower than the figure reported in 1Q11 (US$224.8 million). EBITDA from Buenaventura’s Direct Operations was US$171.1 million, 17% lower than the figure reported in 1Q11 (US$207.0 million), while EBITDA including Yanacocha and Cerro Verde increased 2%, from US$396.6 million in 1Q11 to US$403.1 million in 1Q12.

The Company reported higher operating costs and expenses in 1Q12, while sales remained flat, which led to lower than expected results.
