The Regis Resources Ltd (ASX: RRL) share price is falling today, down 6% in late morning trade. At the time of writing, the share price has recovered slightly, trading at $3.14, down 5.14%.

We take a look at the ASX miner’s financial results for the half-year ending 31 December (H1 FY21).

What results did Regis Resources report for H1 FY21?

The Regis Resources share price is dropping after the company reported a net profit after tax (NPAT) of $84.8 million. Down 9.2% from the $93.4 NPAT reported in H1 FY20.

The company sold 72,990 ounces of gold at an average price of $2,317 per ounce, reporting revenue for the half-year of $401.0 million. That’s up 8% from the $371.4 million of revenue in the previous corresponding period (pcp).

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) came in at $198.6 million, up 7% year-on-year.

Regis reported a strong balance sheet with $147.8 million in cash flows from its operating activities. Additionally, it reported cash and bullion of $220.0 million as at 31 December (and using that date for the gold price).

The company produced 172,977 ounces of gold during the half-year at an all-in sustaining cost (AISC) of $1,356 per ounce.

Management Commentary

Commenting on the results, Regis managing director, Jim Beyer, said:

Regis has again delivered another solid profit result with a half-year profit after tax of approximately $84.8 million and operating cash flows of $147.8 million. A net profit margin of 21% and robust operating cash flows for the half-year continue to point to the strength of the Duketon operations.

During the half-year, the board approved the development of the Garden Well underground mine. This will become the second underground mine at the Duketon operations. Indeed, it will be a welcome addition to Regis’ production profile once developed.

Regis will pay an interim dividend of 4 cents per share (cps), fully franked, with an ex-dividend date of 10 March and payable on 25 March.
