(1)  Cash-flow per share is a non-GAAP financial performance measure with no
     standard definition under IFRS. It is therefore possible that this
     measure could not be comparable with a similar measure of another
     Corporation. The Company uses this non-GAAP measure which can also be
     helpful to investors as it provides a result which can be compared with
     the Company market share price.

Results from operations:

During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Corporation increased its net shareholder equity by 42.6% from $22.3 M in 2012 to $31.8 M in 2013. This increase results from the internal growth generated by the ore processing activities which delivered in 2013 all-time record results.

During 2013, the Huanca plant ran at an average rate of 228 tpd, since its capacity was raised at 230 tpd and then 240 tpd during the third and fourth quarter of 2013. This gave way to another record financial and production year.

The Corporation recorded a net income of $9.1M ($0.25 per share) compared to $7.7M and $0.22 per share in 2012.

During the year, the Corporation produced 76,883 ounces of gold compared to 61,264 in 2012 a 25.5% increase. The increase in gold production compared to 2012 is explained by a higher tonnage and higher gold content of ore processed. During the year the grades of ore processed averaged 1.04oz/DMT (32.36 g/t Au) compared 0.9 oz/DMT (28.00 g/t Au) in 2012.

Total sales for the year amounted to $112.1M (77,266 ounces of gold sold) compared to $105.0M (59,910 ounces sold) in 2012, an increase of 6.8% over 2012. Variation is explained by increased gold production of 25.5% which were offset by a decrease in gold selling price of 15.6%. The average selling price of gold was $1,412 per ounce in 2013 compared to $1,674 in 2012.

Silver production was down from 157,862 ounces in 2012 to 131,685 ounces in 2013 mainly due to lower silver content in the ore processed.

The gross operating margin for the period amounted to $20.5 M (18.3%) compared to $17.8 M (17.0%), an increase of 14.8% over 2012. This increase is explained by higher tonnage processed, higher grades of ore processed and lower depreciation expense as tailing pond was completely depreciated before the end of the year.

The gold cash gross operating margin per ounce was at $264 in 2013 compared to $295 in 2012, a 10.5% decrease over the period, mainly due to a decrease in the price of gold.

(1)  EBITDA: "Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
     amortization, revaluation of warrants and impairment" is a non-GAAP
     financial performance measure with no standard definition under IFRS.
     It is therefore possible that this measure could not be comparable with
     a similar measure of another Corporation. The Corporation uses this
     non-GAAP measure as an indicator of the cash generated by the
     operations and allows investor to compare the profitability of the
     Corporation with others by canceling effects of different assets bases,
     effects due to different tax structures as well as the effects of
     different capital structures.

CASH FLOW FROM OPERATING, INVESTING AND FINANCING ACTIVITIES AND WORKING CAPITAL

Operating Activities

During the year the cash flow from operations before changes in working capital items amounted to $10.3 M ($0.29 per share) compared to $9.2M ($0.26 per share) in 2012. Total cash generated from operating activities amounted to $12.5 M compared to $3.9 M in 2012. Changes in working capital items amounted to $2.2M (-$5.3M in 2012) resulting mainly from a decrease of $6.2 M in inventory, an increase of $4.3M in trade and other receivables since the Corporation had accumulated six months of recoverable Peruvian sales tax credits, for which major part was recovered subsequent to year-end. At December 31, 2013 ore inventory represented 19 days of production compared to 24 at year-end 2012.

Investing Activities

During the year the Corporation invested $3.7M ($1.6 M in 2012) for the acquisition of property, plant and equipment to be used at the current Huanca plant, including an additional $0.8 M for the extension of the tailing pond and for pre-construction expenditure at Chala. Investment to date for Chala amounts to $2.0 M and includes: environmental, hydrogeological water and tailings studies, permitting expenses, consultant fees, equipment purchases, construction of workers camp, water well, a communication tower and a power line that will connect the site to the national grid.

Additions to exploration and evaluation assets during the year amounted to $2.3 M ($0.8M in 2012) as the Corporation ran its planned exploration program at Tumipampa and for which excellent results were published in 2013 and 2014.

Financing activities

During 2013, the Corporation did not complete any share issue financing (nil in 2012). A total of 345,944 options were exercised for proceeds of $0.1M (300,000 options for gross proceeds of $0.1M in 2012).

The Corporation became debt-free following the payment of the second quarter interest and reimbursement in June of the outstanding long term debt which had matured.

Liquidity and working capital

The delay in obtaining the construction permit for the Chala plant led to an increase in the Corporation's cash balance in 2013. The Corporation's working capital amounted to $17.4M of which $8.5M was in cash ($13.3M of which $3.3M in cash at December 31, 2012).

As of December 31, 2013, the Corporation had no financial commitment besides those disclosed in the section Long Term Liabilities and Contractual Obligations and has no restrictions in transferring funds from Peruvian subsidiaries to the parent Corporation.

2014- Ore processing outlook

During the first quarter of 2014, the Corporation's gold ore processing operations were slowed down due to energetic and unprecedented measures taken by the Peruvian Authorities to combat illegal gold mining and illegal gold exports from Peru. Consequently and despite the fact that the Corporation is solely purchasing ore from registered miners, it faced delays, due to general increased measures at customs, in exporting its gold dore production. This situation led to a temporary stoppage of ore purchases and a production slow-down. This situation has temporally affected the Corporation and accordingly its Q1-2014 financial results. The Corporation has now resumed its gold ore processing operations and gold exports and expects the operations to run at full capacity in the upcoming weeks.

Exploration outlook

Following the excellent exploration results obtained in 2013 from the cross cut and underground drilling of the Manto Dorado and the three other high grade veins Dynacor is planning to intensify its exploration of Tumipampa in 2014 and into 2015 with an expected program of approximately $4.5M.
