Jonathan Goodman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dundee Corporation, commented:

“Dundee is pleased to show positive investment results in the first quarter of 2022, as we continue to make progress against all three of our strategic pillars: doing more mining deals, rationalizing our legacy portfolio of non-core assets, and streamlining our cost structure. During the period, Dundee was rewarded for its focus on deep-dive due-diligence, with its portfolio investments delivering a solid performance against a backdrop of global financial weakness.”

“I am pleased with the way our entire Dundee investment team remained active in identifying, de-risking and investing in mining companies with solid value propositions. During the first quarter, we increased positions in high-quality, well-run mining companies such as Reunion Gold, Centaurus Metals, and Ausgold among others. Subsequent to quarter end, Dundee was extremely pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Aura Minerals to develop and participate in future cash flows from the Borborema Gold Project.”

“With recent geopolitical events and a global pandemic exposing the fragility of global supply chains and financial systems, we hold to our strong conviction that the need for high quality and sustainably sourced mining assets has never been greater. We remain focused on investing in the long-term and working with our investee companies as advisors and partners to maximize asset value and realize their full potential.”

Mr. Goodman continued, “We continued to make progress in reducing our corporate GA run rate in the first quarter of 2022. We see a clear path to additional GA improvements in leasehold costs, IT costs, insurance costs and other items. We remain laser-focused on reducing run-rate GA as well as funding to subsidiaries.”

Mr. Goodman concluded, “The entire team at Dundee continues to work hard to execute on all aspects of our transformation strategy. I am encouraged by our ability to sustain and grow our momentum in the first quarter of 2022. Our team remains committed to growing the core business and setting Dundee up to deliver long-term, sustainable value for our stakeholders, shareholders and partners. I would like to thank the entire team for their efforts in managing through a period of incredible change.”


Operating results during the first quarter of 2022 reflect a $44.8 million market appreciation (2021 – $11.5 million market depreciation) in certain of the Corporation’s investments that are carried in the consolidated financial statements at fair value through profit or loss. In addition, net income from investments during the first quarter of 2022 includes $1.8 million (2021 – $0.7 million) dividend and interest income distributed from its portfolio investments.
