Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. (LUX:CSE)

Newlox Gold Ventures Corp. has announced its first sale of gold and its successful contaminant recovery since commissioning its tailings remediation program.
Newlox reports first revenue of C$40,020 has been received along with recovery of meaningful amounts of mercury. This achievement has validated the company’s business model and paves the way for ramping up of processing operations.
In addition to the revenue, the company is successfully remediating mercury contamination, which is a strong validation of the company’s environmental business model and a meaningful social benefit to local stakeholders.
Newlox has a comprehensive plan to incrementally increase gold doré output toward its stated objectives and plans to frequently update its shareholders as it progresses.
QIS Capital: Newlox has been slower than expected to the starting line but the company is now producing revenues. While we are still in the early phases, management is working on ramping up both throughput and production. This is not the typical mining company which has been stuck in the cellar for three years because of limited capital for exploration. Newlox is generating cash flow and expects to be generating significant earnings later this year. With a market capitalization of only $2.3 million, Newlox now has assets and improving financials in place to improve shareholder value going forward.

During the first quarter of 2015, NTG Clarity collected a significant amount of receivables (over $5.5 million or 49% of the $11,297,839 receivable value at December 31, 2014. Subsequent to quarter end, the corporation has collected an additional $2.9 million.
Looking towards the future, NTG Clarity remains committed to its growth strategy and continues to focus on growing organic operations, expanding its marketing reach geographically and enhancing the company’s product offerings. Management is also looking to increase NTG’s reach through acquisitions and/or partnerships with global system integrators.
In an unrelated matter, the Company announced the following management will have share options issued; Kristine Lewis; 100,000 options; M. Adel Zaghloul; 100,000 options; and Ashraf Zaghloul; 100,000 options. Each option will be exercisable at a price of $0.30 per share and will vest upon issuance.
QIS Capital: Q1 results were significantly higher than management’s outlook provided a month ago. All measures showed substantial improvement during the quarter including revenues, earnings, shareholders’ equity, accounts receivable, and cash balance. Without the writedowns in Q4, NTG Clarity’s trailing 12 month earnings would be over $0.08 per share on a fully taxed basis. $0.08 eps is also consistent with annualized Q1 results although financial results can differ on a quarter to quarter basis. Assuming $0.08 eps, NTG Clarity would be trading at just 5 times earnings ignoring the fact that the company has no long-term debt and positive working capital of $0.19 per share. Adjusted for working capital, NTG Clarity would be trading at only 2.6X earnings.
