Dacha Releases Q3 Financial Statements

TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Dacha Strategic Metals Inc. (TSX-V: DSM) ("Dacha") today released its unaudited financial results for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2013.  For more information, please see Dacha's condensed interim consolidated financial statements and management's discussion and analysis filed under Dacha's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.  Unless otherwise noted, dollar references below are to U.S. funds.

During the three months ended December 31, 2013, Dacha reported a net loss of $5.0 million (or $0.07 per basic share), compared to a net loss of $22.6 million (or $0.30 per basic share) during the three months ended December 31, 2012.  The net loss during the three months ended December 31, 2013 was largely as a result of pricing declines in Dacha's metals investments.

As at December 31, 2013, Dacha held 33,950 kilograms of rare earth metals with an estimated fair market value, based upon pricing reported by two independent news sources for the strategic metals industry, of $5.4 million.  The true realizable value of the rare earth metals held by Dacha may significantly differ from the prices reflected on these market websites.  Further, due to the illiquidity of rare earth metals markets and the significant volatility of prices at which Dacha's metals investments may be sold, there may be significant differences between the prices that may actually be realized in a sale of Dacha's metals and estimated values as reflected in Dacha's financial statements.

As at December 31, 2013, Dacha had net assets of $13.5 million (or $0.18 per basic share), principally comprising cash of $5.7 million, metals inventories with an estimated fair market value of $5.4 million, accounts receivable of $2.8 million, prepaid expenses and deposits of $65,377, accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $312,885, income taxes payable of $122,375 and deferred income taxes of $34,764.

Subsequent to December 31, 2013, Dacha entered into agreements to sell 9,950 kgs of Gadolinium Oxide and 10,000 kgs of Yttrium Oxide for aggregate proceeds of $179,500.  Market conditions at the time of these sales were such that these metals were sold for less than their estimated fair market value as at December 31, 2013 as reflected in Dacha's financial statements.  Dacha continues to evaluate Dacha's inventory positions and may make future sales of rare earth metals depending upon market conditions and other relevant facts.

Dacha also announced today that the term of the consulting agreement whereby Mr. Graham Warren serves as Dacha's Chief Financial Officer has been extended to December 31, 2014, subject to the continuing right of Mr. Warren or Dacha to terminate such consulting agreement upon 90 days' prior notice.  The annual fee for Mr. Warren's services under this agreement remains at Cdn. $90,000.
