Luxembourg, November 28, 2014 – Northland Resources SE (OSE: NAUR, Frankfurt: NPK, Nasdaq OMX/First North: NAURo – together with its subsidiaries “Northland”, “NRSE” or the “Company”) today announces its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Net sales for the quarter were USD 47.3 million (USD 31.1 million in the second quarter), with a gross loss of USD 28.0 million (USD 24.2 million) and a net loss of USD 932.7 million (USD 250.1 million), and EBITDA of USD 11.9 million negative (USD 8.2 million negative). The net loss in third quarter of 2014 includes impairment charges of USD 838.4 million from the continued operations and USD 12 million for discontinued operations. The total concentrate produced in the quarter was approximately 421,000 dry metric tonnes.

With this year’s dramatic decline in iron ore prices in mind and taking into account the current outlook of iron ore prices, the Company decided to adopt a more conservative view regarding iron ore prices in the longer term. As a result, the Kaunisvaara project assets for continued operations were revalued significantly downwards, affecting the quarterly results in accordance with above.

The Management’s Discussion and Analysis and Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, today have been posted on the Company’s website:
