(1) Adjusted earnings, mine operating cash flow, EBITDA and cash costs are non-IFRS measures. Please refer to the definitions in the Company's Management Discussion & Analysis.

Endeavour CEO Bradford Cooke stated: "We delivered another record year of silver and gold production and revenue in 2013. In spite of achieving higher throughput, grades and recoveries at all three mines, our earnings were hit by lower metal prices and reduced carrying values at El Cubo and Guanacevi plus a deferred tax liability related to the new mining taxes in Mexico.

"Nonetheless, significant progress was made in 2013, particularly in the El Cubo mine performance and operating costs. The single digit cash costs are what management originally modelled long term for El Cubo when it acquired the mine in 2012. The operating turn-around at El Cubo still has two quarters to completion but the transformation thus far has been very satisfying."

Financial Results (Consolidated Statement of Operations appended below)

For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company generated revenue totaling $276.8 million (2012 - $208.1 million). During the year, the Company sold 7,151,963 oz silver and 81,119 oz gold at realized prices of $23.10 and $1,375 per oz respectively, compared to sales of 4,815,073 oz silver and 35,167 oz gold at realized prices of $30.99 and $1,674 per oz respectively in 2012.

After cost of sales of $219.9 million (2012 - $130.1 million), mine operating earnings amounted to $56.9 million (2012 - $78.0 million) from mining and milling operations in Mexico.

Excluding depreciation and depletion of $53.6 million (2012 - $29.7 million), stock-based compensation of $0.5 million (2012- $0.5 million), and a write-down of inventory of $5.9 million (2012 - $6.2), mine operating cash flow before taxes was $116.9 million (2012 - $114.4 million) in 2013. Operating loss was $102.9 million (2012 - earnings of $53.6 million) driven by impairment charges of $95.8 million on the Guanacevi and El Cubo mines and a $39.2 million impairment of El Cubo goodwill.

At December 31, 2013, the Company determined there were several indicators of potential impairment of its producing mineral properties which include the sustained decline in precious metal prices, the Mexican tax reform and a reduction of the Guanacevi estimated reserves and resources. The net after-tax impairment totaled $104.3 million. As a result, net earnings fell from $42.1 million to a loss of $89.5 million in 2013.

Net earnings also included a mark-to-market derivative liabilities gain related to share purchase warrants issued in 2009 denominated in Canadian dollars, while the Company's functional currency is the US dollar. Under IFRS, these warrants are classified and accounted for as financial liability at fair market value with adjustments recognized through net earnings. The appreciation of these warrants resulted in a derivative liability gain of $3.8 million (2012 - loss of $1.9 million).

Excluding the net impairment charges and the mark-to market derivative liabilities gain, adjusted earnings were $11.1 million ($0.11 per share) compared to $40.2 million ($0.43 per share) in 2012. The drop in precious metal prices was the primary reason for the decrease in the Company's earnings year over year.

In December 2013, the Mexican President passed tax reform legislation that took effect January 1, 2014. The tax reform includes, among other items, an increase of the Mexican corporate tax rate from 28% to 30%, removal of the flat tax regime, a Special Mining Duty of 7.5% on taxable mine revenue, less allowable deductions excluding interest and capital depreciation, and an 0.5% Environmental Tax on gold and silver revenue. The tax reform is expected to have a material impact on the Company's future earnings and cash flow.

Consolidated operating costs increased 5% to $97 per tonne due to rising wage pressures, significant restructuring costs, additional use of contractors and higher refining costs, partly offset by the additional economies of scale with the higher output. Cash cost per ounce, net of by-product credits, which is a non- IFRS measure and a standard of the Silver Institute, rose 8% to $7.92 per ounce of payable silver compared to $7.33 per ounce in 2012. The lower by-product credit because of the lower gold price was the primary contributor to the higher cash costs, offset by higher consolidated grades and recoveries. All- in sustaining costs fell 21% as mine development and exploration expenditures were curtailed in response to falling precious metal prices and these costs were allocated over more ounces of silver production.

The Company invested a total of $88.6 million in property, plant and equipment during 2013. Of this, $48.5 million was invested at El Cubo, $21.4 million at Bolanitos, and $15.9 million at Guanacevi. The El Cubo plant refurbishment was completed on time and budget, while the 10.6 kilometres of accelerated mine development should allow the El Cubo mine output to rise to the 1,550 tonnes per day plant capacity by year-end. The Guanacevi and Bolanitos capital investments continued to focus primarily on sustaining mine development and tailings dam expansions.

2014 Outlook

Endeavour plans to hold silver production relatively steady in the range of 6.5-6.9 million oz in 2014 compared to the 6.8 million oz silver produced in 2013. Gold production is expected to be in the 65,000-69,000 oz range and silver equivalent production is anticipated to be 10.4-11.0 million oz (at a silver:gold ratio of 60:1) as shown in the table below.


                                                 Ag Eq. Prod.     Tonnes/Day
Mine            Ag Prod. (M oz) Au Prod. (K oz)        (K oz)          (tpd)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Guanacevi               2.6-2.7         7.0-8.0       3.0-3.2    1,200-1,300
Bolanitos               2.2-2.4       36.0-38.0       4.4-4.7    1,450-1,600
El Cubo                 1.7-1.8       22.0-23.0       3.0-3.1    1,200-1,550
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 2014, Bolanitos production will pull back to the 1,600 tpd plant capacity as management has elected not to continue extra mine production for processing at the El Cubo plant as it did in 2013. At Bolanitos, production will continue primarily from the Daniela, Karina, Lana and Bolanitos veins and mine development will open up the La Luz- Asuncion deposit.

In 2013, El Cubo production will expand to fill the 1,550 tpd plant to capacity through a steady ramp-up of mine output as mine development opens up the new Villalpando-Asuncion deposit. At El Cubo, the remaining 2014 production will continue to come primarily from the Dolores, Villalpando, San Nicolas and Santa Cecilia veins.

Bolanitos and El Cubo are both producing silver-gold concentrates for sale under one year contracts to smelters because their attractive terms offer lower costs and higher profit margins compared to producing dore bars from the El Cubo leach plant at the current low metal prices.

At Guanacevi, production will continue primarily from the Porvenir Norte, Porvenir Cuatro and Santa Cruz veins. Underground development of the new Milache discovery is awaiting permitting for development to start in 2014 and production to start in 2015.

Operating Costs

Direct operating costs are forecast at $95 per tonne, and consolidated by-product cash costs of silver production (net of gold credits) are anticipated to be in the $9-$10 per oz range in 2014. The increase from 2013 is primarily driven by the lower gold price and reduced gold production. Consolidated co- product cash costs of silver and gold production are anticipated to be around $13-14 and $800-850 per oz respectively.

All-in by-product sustaining costs of production (including sustaining capex, exploration and G&A costs) are forecasted to be approximately $19 per oz of silver produced.

Capital Budget

Endeavour plans to invest $43.9 million on capital projects in 2014, including $34.6 million on mine development, infrastructure, equipment and exploration plus $9.3 million on plant upgrades, infrastructure, equipment and buildings. The Company has budgeted $20.9 million at El Cubo, $9.9 million at Bolanitos, $11.7 million at Guanacevi and $1.4 million for general capital, all of which should be funded by the Company's anticipated 2014 operating cash flow.

Because of Endeavour's reserve depletion last year, management will look for opportunities to allocate additional funds for accelerated mine development to convert measured and indicated resources into proven and probable reserves in 2014.

Exploration Expenditures

In 2014, Endeavour plans to spend $10.7 million on exploration. A total of 54,000 metres of drilling in about 120 holes are budgeted to test multiple exploration targets in addition to the underground mine exploration drilling. As in previous years, management will look for opportunities to stretch and also augment this budget in order to fuel accelerated resource expansion.

The Company will focus on brownfields exploration around the three operating mines in order to replenish reserves and grow resources and mine lives, as well as expanding and permitting the emerging new high grade silver-gold discovery in the Terronera vein on the San Sebastian property in Jalisco State.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals.

Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
