The consolidated statements of profits or loss of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"). The consolidated statements of profits or loss have been derived from and should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 to be contained in the Company's annual report on Form 20-F to be filed with the Commission on or prior to April 30, 2014.

Mr. Li Feilie, the Company's Chairman, commented on the results: "China Natural Resources recorded total revenues of CNY41.36 million (US$6.83 million) in 2013, up by 180.83% from a year earlier. The rise in revenues was mainly attributable to an increase in the production volume of iron concentrates, partly offset by a decrease in the average selling price of iron concentrates and a decrease in the sales of both zinc concentrates and micaceous iron oxide-grey. In January 2014, the Company completed the spin-off (the "Spin-Off") and listing on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited of its shares in the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Feishang Anthracite Resources Limited, which operated the Company's coal mining businesses prior to the Spin-Off. Following the Spin-Off, we intend to continue to identify potential projects that will enhance the Company's value."

For the convenience of the reader, amounts in Chinese Yuan ("CNY") have been translated into United States dollars ("US$") at the rate of US$1.00=CNY6.0543 quoted by Bloomberg Finance L.P. on December 31, 2013.  The CNY is not freely convertible into foreign currencies and no representation is made that the CNY amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US$ at that rate, or at all.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
