Buenaventura Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

Compañia de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A. (“Buenaventura” or “the Company”) (NYSE: BVN; Lima Stock Exchange: BUE.LM), Peru’s largest, publicly-traded precious metals mining company, announced today results for the fourth quarter 2012. All figures have been prepared in accordance with IFRS and are stated in U.S. dollars (US$).

Comments from the Chief Executive Officer:

Mr. Roque Benavides, Buenaventura’s Chief Executive Officer, stated:

“Net income in the fourth quarter was US$139.1 million, 39% lower than the figure reported in 4Q11 (US$227.9 million). EBITDA from Buenaventura’s Direct Operations was US$130.2 million, 32% lower than the figure reported in 4Q11 (US$192.1 million), while EBITDA including Affiliates decreased 33%, from US$421.7 million in 4Q11 to US$281.5 million in 4Q12.

These results were mainly explained by lower volume of gold sold, higher operating costs, exploration efforts and decreased contributions from affiliates.
