B2Gold's Q2'19 profit swells 82.2% YOY on record gold production

B2Gold Corp. said Aug. 6 that second-quarter net profit grew 82.2% to US$37.9 million, or 4 U.S. cents per share, from US$20.8 million, or 2 cents per share, a year earlier, as the company achieved record gold production of 246,020 ounces.

Adjusted net income for the period totaled US$52 million, up from US$46 million a year ago.

The Toronto-listed miner said production at the Fekola mine in Mali, the Masbate mine in the Philippines, the Otjikoto mine in Namibia and the La Libertad mine in Nicaragua exceeded targets during the quarter, and output from El Limon in Nicaragua was in line with budget.

Gold revenues during the quarter totaled US$267.2 million, increasing 10.3% from US$242.3 million in the prior year. Consolidated gold sales in the period were 236,282 ounces.

Quarterly operating income totaled US$79.0 million, down 0.7% from US$79.6 million in the year-ago period.

For the first half, attributable net income fell to US$60.2 million, or 6 cents per share, from US$77.3 million, or 6 cents per share. Gold revenue totaled US$531.2 million, a decrease from US$540.5 million. Consolidated sales for the half totaled 468,358 ounces.
