Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights:

  • Management believes it has sufficient cash to operate through December 2014;
  • As of November 7th, Texas Rare Earth had approximately $6 million in cash and cash equivalents or $0.16/share based on 36.6 million shares outstanding as of November 7th;
  • As of the fiscal year ending August 31, 2012, the Company had a working capital surplus of $6.1 million and no debt;
  • For fiscal 2013, management estimates outlays of $1 million - $1.5 million for exploration efforts, primarily to third parties for metallurgical analysis as compared to $7.6 million in fiscal 2012;
  • Fiscal 2013 estimated general and administrative costs will not exceed $1.9 million, excluding noncash stock compensation to officers and directors as compared to $6.8 million in fiscal 2012;
  • Management's policy will be to not issue common stock under $2.50 per share.

Dan Gorski, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "For a company of our size and current explorative state, we believe our strong balance sheet positions our company to prosper as we head into 2013. Currently we have $6 million or $0.16 per share in cash and cash equivalents which we believe is sufficient to provide us at least two years of access to capital to continue conducting research and analyzing our asset base while exploring monetizing options. We have evaluated our current burn rate and as compared to fiscal 2012 of approximately $1 million per month we anticipate reducing that amount in fiscal 2013 to approximately $135,000 per month plus specific technical study payments, lease payments or discretionary items that may arise. We are well positioned to show the industry and capital markets the investment opportunity that Texas Rare Earth presents."
