From Coeur's President & Chief Executive Officer, Mitchell J. Krebs

"We achieved a number of significant milestones during the third quarter despite lower production relative to the second quarter. Our quarterly earnings more than doubled, free cash flow increased 20% quarter-over-quarter and LTM adjusted EBITDA has now risen above $200 million - up from $96 million just 15 months ago. Importantly, we are well-positioned for a strong fourth quarter at each of our five operations," said Mitchell J. Krebs, Coeur's President and Chief Executive Officer.

"We made great progress repositioning our balance sheet to be conservative, flexible and supportive of the Company's future growth initiatives. Our total debt declined by 21% since the end of June, interest expense dropped by 26%, and our total debt to LTM adjusted EBITDA ratio has now dropped to 2.0x - down 65% from 5.7x just fifteen months ago. With cash and equivalents of over $220 million and rising due to our positive free cash flow and the expected completion of our ongoing ATM stock offering, we anticipate further balance sheet strengthening to take place during the remainder of this year.

"We increased our full-year 2016 production guidance earlier this month and are now reducing our full-year 2016 cost guidance, which reflects the significant operational improvements we have made over the last several years. As we focus on longer-term growth in production and cash flow, we are excited about the high-grade exploration results we are generating from several of our existing operations and our revitalized earlier-stage exploration initiatives. In addition, we look forward to conducting confirmation drilling in early 2017 with the goal of assessing a lower capex, higher grade, lower tonnage development and operating plan for our La Preciosa project in Mexico."
