SSR Mining (SSRM) Tops Q2 Earnings and Revenue Estimates​

b95cfdd8768bc3c4620e666dbcb0b248

SR Mining (SSRM) came out with quarterly earnings of $0.46 per share, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.38 per share. This compares to loss of $0.02 per share a year ago. These figures are adjusted for non-recurring items.

This quarterly report represents an earnings surprise of 21.05%. A quarter ago, it was expected that this precious metals mining company would post earnings of $0.40 per share when it actually produced earnings of $0.47, delivering a surprise of 17.50%.

Over the last four quarters, the company has surpassed consensus EPS estimates three times.


SSR Mining, which belongs to the Zacks Mining - Miscellaneous industry, posted revenues of $376.95 million for the quarter ended June 2021, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 1.10%. This compares to year-ago revenues of $92.49 million. The company has topped consensus revenue estimates two times over the last four quarters.

The sustainability of the stock's immediate price movement based on the recently-released numbers and future earnings expectations will mostly depend on management's commentary on the earnings call.

SSR Mining shares have lost about 18.3% since the beginning of the year versus the S&P 500's gain of 17.8%.

What's Next for SSR Mining?

While SSR Mining has underperformed the market so far this year, the question that comes to investors' minds is: what's next for the stock?

There are no easy answers to this key question, but one reliable measure that can help investors address this is the company's earnings outlook. Not only does this include current consensus earnings expectations for the coming quarter(s), but also how these expectations have changed lately.
Empirical research shows a strong correlation between near-term stock movements and trends in earnings estimate revisions. Investors can track such revisions by themselves or rely on a tried-and-tested rating tool like the Zacks Rank, which has an impressive track record of harnessing the power of earnings estimate revisions.
Ahead of this earnings release, the estimate revisions trend for SSR Mining was mixed. While the magnitude and direction of estimate revisions could change following the company's just-released earnings report, the current status translates into a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) for the stock. So, the shares are expected to perform in line with the market in the near future. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
It will be interesting to see how estimates for the coming quarters and current fiscal year change in the days ahead. The current consensus EPS estimate is $0.41 on $363.28 million in revenues for the coming quarter and $1.67 on $1.47 billion in revenues for the current fiscal year.
Investors should be mindful of the fact that the outlook for the industry can have a material impact on the performance of the stock as well. In terms of the Zacks Industry Rank, Mining - Miscellaneous is currently in the bottom 24% of the 250 plus Zacks industries. Our research shows that the top 50% of the Zacks-ranked industries outperform the bottom 50% by a factor of more than 2 to 1.

SSR Mining Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results Continuing Its Exceptional Track Record of Operational and Financial Delivery​


Wed, August 4, 2021, 6:00 AM


ADJUSTED ATTRIBUTABLE EPS OF $0.46 PER SHARE AND FREE CASH FLOW OF $100 MILLION
DENVER, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - SSR Mining Inc. (NASDAQ: SSRM) (TSX: SSRM) (ASX: SSR) ("SSR Mining" or "the Company") reports consolidated financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. In addition, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of US$0.05 per common share, payable on September 13, 2021 to holders of record at the close of business on August 16, 2021. This dividend qualifies as an 'eligible dividend' for Canadian tax purposes.
Rod Antal, President and CEO said, "The second quarter of 2021 continued the strong operational and financial track record that built the reputation of SSR Mining. The Company delivered quarterly production of 199,673 gold equivalent ounces and first half production of 395,750 gold equivalent ounces, including record production from Seabee and Puna, record tonnes mined at Marigold and the continued outperformance of our flagship operation at Çöpler.

In addition to the solid production, SSR Mining delivered quarterly AISC of $961 per gold equivalent ounce. The strong margins further demonstrated our peer leading free cash flow yield as the Company generated $100 million of free cash flow in the quarter. That strong free cash flow supports our robust capital returns program, as we aggressively followed through on the share buyback program we announced in April, cumulatively returning approximately $125 million dollars overall to shareholders year-to-date. We continue to see opportunity for our shares to re-rate to a premium valuation that properly reflects our delivery of consistent operating performance, strong free cash flow, low capital intensity organic growth profile and sizeable capital returns.
We remain at the top of our peer group with respect to balance sheet strength, and in addition to the year-to-date capital returns we are well positioned to fund our large portfolio of organic growth opportunities across Turkey, the US and Canada. At Çöpler, the flotation plant construction was substantially completed during the second quarter and commissioning remains on track for Q3. A steady flow of updates are expected in the second half of the year detailing positive progress at development and exploration targets across Çöpler, Marigold and Seabee."

The dividend payment applies to holders of SSR Mining's common shares, which trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq under the symbol SSRM, and to holders of its CHESS Depositary Interests ("CDIs"), which trade on the Australian Securities Exchange under the symbol SSR.

Cautionary Note Regarding Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources Estimates
This news release includes Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources classification terms that comply with reporting standards in Canada and the Mineral Reserves and the Mineral Resources estimates are made in accordance with NI 43-101. NI 43-101 is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the SEC set out in the SEC's rules that are applicable to domestic United States reporting companies. Consequently, Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources information included in this news release may not be comparable to similar information that would generally be disclosed by domestic U.S. reporting companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC. Accordingly, information concerning mineral deposits set forth herein may not be comparable with information made public by companies that report in accordance with U.S. standards.
Cautionary Note Regarding Non-GAAP Measures
This news release includes certain terms or performance measures commonly used in the mining industry that are not defined under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), including free cash flow, cash costs and AISC per payable ounce of gold and silver sold, realized metal prices, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted attributable net income, adjusted basic attributable earnings per share, consolidated cash and consolidated net cash. Non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and, therefore, they may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other companies. The Company believe that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance. The data presented is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Readers should refer to the endnotes in this news release for further information regarding how the Company calculates certain of these measures. Readers should also refer to the Company's management's discussion and analysis, available under the Company's corporate profile at www.sedar.com or on the Company's website at www.ssrmining.com, under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a more detailed discussion of how the Company calculates such measures and a reconciliation of certain measures to GAAP terms.
