MAG Silver Reports 2013 Annual Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- MAG Silver Corp. (TSX:MAG)(NYSE MKT:MVG)(NYSE Amex:MVG) ("MAG" or the "Company") announces the Company's audited consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013. For complete details of the annual financial statements and related Management's Discussion and Analysis, please see the Company's filings on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) or on EDGAR (www.sec.gov). All amounts herein are reported in United States dollars unless otherwise specified.

2013 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

At December 31, 2013, the Company had working capital of $25,970,215 (compared to $40,492,095 at December 31, 2012), including cash of $25,050,948 (compared to $40,621,158 at December 31, 2012). The Company currently has sufficient working capital to maintain all of its properties and currently planned programs extending beyond the next 12 months. The primary use of cash during the year ended December 31, 2013 was on the Juanicipio property, where the Company expended on its own account and through advances to Minera Juanicipio, S.A. de C.V. ("Minera Juanicipio") $5,166,251 (December 31, 2012: $4,577,611). The Company also incurred other exploration and evaluation expenditures on its other properties totaling $4,563,343 (December 31, 2012: $11,981,221).

The Company's net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 amounted to $29,371,353 (or $0.49 per share) as compared to $12,314,322 (or $0.22 per share) in 2012. The increased net loss in 2013 is primarily due to the write off of non-core exploration and evaluation costs during the year ended December 31, 2013 of $16,998,885 (December 31, 2012: 3,364,479). With the desire to focus on and preserve cash for its core projects, the Lagartos claims totaling $12,642,486 were written off (including $8,576,602 in the three months ended December 31, 2013), along with the 100% owned Lorena and Nuevo Mundo claims totaling $2,719,689, and the Mojina earn in option agreement was terminated and $1,636,710 written off.

During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company also recorded $3,014,711 (December 31, 2012: $3,409,001) of share based payment expense (a non-cash item) relating to stock options both granted and vesting to employees and consultants in the period. The fair value of all share-based payment compensation is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model.

In addition, during the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a non-cash deferred tax expense of $4,234,722 (December 31, 2012: tax recovery of $840,052) related to the Cinco de Mayo, Batopilas, Guigui, and Salamandra exploration projects. The Mexican government enacted a tax reform on December 11, 2013, and introduced a 7.5% mining royalty effective January 1, 2014. As a result, the Company recorded a deferred tax expense relating to the initial recognition impact of the mining royalty. The deferred tax expense is a non-cash item, and will only be realized once these exploration properties are developed and in production. The Company also recorded its 44% share of the equivalent deferred tax expense applicable to Minera Juanicipio as an Equity Pick Up from Associate, amounting to $1,534,769.

Shareholders may receive, upon request and free of charge, a hard copy of the Audited Financial Statements. The Company's 40-F has also been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

Project Updates

At Minera Juanicipio, the proposed 2014 development budget is $11.4 million (MAG's 44% share is $5 million), and is designated primarily for the ramp advancement and some detailed engineering. Subsequent to year end, in mid-March, the contractor hired by Fresnillo to construct the ramp decline on behalf of Minera Juanicipio received its full explosives permit from the Mexican Ministry of Defense. Development of the Juanicipio ramp decline is now advancing with conventional drill and blast cycles as well as with the continuous miner. In addition to the Juanicipio development, exploration work is also planned to seek new veins and trace structures and veins in neighbouring parts of the district onto the Minera Juanicipio joint venture ground. The proposed 2014 exploration budget for Minera Juanicipio is US$3.6 million (MAG's 44% share is US$1.6 million).

No active exploration is currently being undertaken on the Cinco de Mayo property, as the Company remains in the process of negotiating a renewed surface access agreement with the local Ejido. The overall timeline to successful resolution and renewed surface access is not determinable at this time, and will depend upon various factors including but not limited to: the ability of the Company to arrive at a settlement agreement that would be fully supported by the majority of the Ejido; and, the ability of the Ejido to conduct a properly constituted Assembly meeting, with quorum, and favourable outcome.

At Salamadra, where the Company has an option to earn up to 70% of property, the system remains open in all directions and the drilling program is currently operating with two diamond drill rigs. The Company continues to delineate the system, while fleshing out the best intercepts from the initial drill program.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
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.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
