Greenwood Village, CO US, November 07, 2013 /FSC/ - Molycorp, Inc (MCP - NYSE), ("Molycorp" or the "Company") ($MCP) today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter of 2013.

THIRD QUARTER 2013 RESULTS

The Company reported consolidated net revenues of $149.1 million, a 9% increase over the second quarter of 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily attributable to higher product volumes and slightly higher ASPs in the Chemicals and Oxides segment and higher product volumes for its Magnetic Materials and Alloys segment.

During the third quarter, the Company sold 3,620 mt of product at an ASP of $41.18 per kilogram, and generated a gross loss of $17.8 million. This compares to volume sales of 3,039 mt at an ASP of $45.04 per kilogram and a gross loss of $18.5 million during the second quarter of 2013.

Molycorp reported a loss attributable to common stockholders of $72.8 million, or $0.43 per share. Adjusted loss per share of $0.27 in the third quarter 2013 eliminates the effect of operational expansion items, out-of-ordinary business expenses, and certain other non-cash items.

The Company reported negative cash flows from operating activities of $90.0 million during the first nine months of 2013, and had $173.9 million in cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2013. During the quarter the company reported negative operating cash flow of $16.0 million, a 54% improvement over the prior quarter of negative $34.7 million.

During the three months ended September 30, 2013, Molycorp's capital expenditures were $69.9 million on a cash basis. For the remainder of 2013, the Company estimates that its capital expenditures will total approximately $60 million.

CONFERENCE CALL TODAY AT 4:30 P.M. EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME

Molycorp will conduct a conference call today to discuss these results at 4:30 p.m. EDT, hosted by Mr. Karayannopoulos, President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Doolan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, and Geoff Bedford, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Investors interested in participating in the live call from the U.S. should dial +1 (877) 474-9503 and reference passcode number 859736683. Those calling from outside the U.S. should dial +1 (857) 244-7556 and reference the same passcode as above.

There will also be a simultaneous live audio webcast available on the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.molycorp.com/investors. The webcast will be archived on the website. A PowerPoint presentation that will be broadcast live via webcast during the conference call will be made available on the website immediately prior to the call.

NON-GAAP ADJUSTED NET LOSS, EBITDA and ADJUSTED EBITDA

Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP measure that excludes certain non-cash items and other out-of-ordinary business expense and operational expansion items. EBITDA is also a non-GAAP measure that excludes interest, tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA excluding certain non-cash items and other out-of-ordinary business expense and operational expansion items. The Company's management believes adjusting out these items, including but not limited to purchase accounting adjustments, stock-based compensation, out-of-ordinary expenses/income, asset impairment charges and other miscellaneous charges, is useful to investors because it provides an overall understanding of the Company's historical financial performance and future prospects. Management believes adjusted net loss, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are an indication of the Company's base-line performance. Exclusion of these items permits evaluation and comparison of results for the Company's core business operations, and it is on this basis that management internally assesses the Company's performance.

1. The Resources segment includes the Company's operations at its Molycorp Mountain Pass facility where it conducts rare earth minerals extraction to produce: purified unseparated light rare earth concentrates; separated rare earth oxides, or REO, including lanthanum, cerium and neodymium/praseodymium; heavy rare earth concentrate, which includes samarium, europium, gadolinium, or SEG, terbium, dysprosium, and others; and SorbX(TM), a line of proprietary rare earth-based water treatment products.

2. The Chemicals and Oxides division includes: production of REO at the Company's operations in Sillamae, Estonia; heavy rare earth oxides other custom engineered materials from the Company's facilities in Jiangyin, Jiangsu Province, China; and production of REO, salts of rare earth elements, zirconium-based engineered materials and mixed rare earth/zirconium oxides from the Company's facilities in Zibo, Shandong Province, China. Rare earth and zirconium applications from products made in this segment include catalytic converters, computers, television display panels, optical lenses, mobile phones, electronic chips, and many others.

3. The Magnetic Materials and Alloys segment includes: the production of Neo Powders(TM) through the Company's wholly-owned manufacturing facilities in Tianjin, China, and Korat, Thailand, under the Molycorp Magnequench brand. This operating segment also includes manufacturing of neodymium and samarium magnet alloys, other specialty alloy products and rare earth metals at the Molycorp Metals and Alloys facility, located in Tolleson, Arizona. Neo Powders(TM) are used in micro motors, precision motors, sensors, and other applications requiring high levels of magnetic strength, flexibility, small size, and reduced weight.

4. The Rare Metals segment produces, reclaims, refines and markets high value niche metals and their compounds that include gallium, indium, rhenium, tantalum, and niobium. Operations in this segment include the following: Quapaw, Oklahoma; Blanding, Utah; Peterborough, Ontario; Sagard, Germany; Hyeongok Industrial Zone in South Korea; and Sillamae, Estonia. Applications from products made in this segment include wireless technologies, light-emitting diode, flat panel display, turbine, solar, catalyst, steel additive, electronics applications, and others. In July 2013, the Company committed to a plan to discontinue operations at its Napanee, Ontario - Canada facility by the end of fiscal 2013 due to a declining demand for rhenium combined with unfavorable operating costs in this particular recycling sector. Therefore, the operating results of the Napanee facility were included in discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, and the prior period presentation of financial data for the Rare Metals segment has been revised for comparative purposes.

ABOUT MOLYCORP

Molycorp is the only advanced material manufacturer in the world that both controls a world-class rare earth resource and can produce high-purity, custom engineered rare earth products to meet increasingly demanding customer specifications. A globally integrated manufacturer, the Company produces a wide variety of specialized products from 13 different rare earths (lights and heavies), five rare metals (gallium, indium, rhenium, tantalum and niobium), and the transition metals yttrium and zirconium. With 27 locations across 11 countries, Molycorp also produces rare earth magnetic materials through its Molycorp Magnequench subsidiary, including neodymium-iron-boron ("NdFeB") magnet powders, used to manufacture bonded NdFeB permanent rare earth magnets. Through its joint venture with Daido Steel and the Mitsubishi Corporation, Molycorp manufactures next-generation, sintered NdFeB permanent rare earth magnets. Through its Molycorp Advanced Water Technologies subsidiary, the Company markets and sells its proprietary, cerium-based advanced water purification technology called SorbX(TM) for use in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, recreational water, and pool and spa water treatment markets.
