AABB – Asia Metals Achieves Strong 2nd Quarter Gold Production And On Track To Exceed $12 Million Annual Gross Profit July 21, 2020 Stock Day Media 63 Views aabb, Asia, asiametals, grossprofit, metals LAS VEGAS, July 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Asia Broadband Inc. (OTC : AABB), through its wholly owned subsidiary Asia Metals Inc., announced today that the financial results for the 2nd quarter ending June 30, 2020, will be published in the coming weeks confirming the Company’s second highest quarterly gross profit to date, despite the imposed temporary shutdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Gold production more than doubled in the 1st quarter of 2020, in comparison to the 4th quarter of 2019, due to the higher daily throughput levels and metals extraction efficiencies achieved with the new production facilities that began the operational phase-in process early this year. Additionally, the economies of scale from higher productions levels and lower energy prices both reduced production costs and added to the bottom-line gross profits for the 1st and 2nd quarters. Fortunately, the ramp-up of production near the end of the 1st quarter could not be completed and booked by March 31st and was carried over to the 2nd quarter results, significantly counteracting the financial impact of the mandated government shutdown in April and May. Prior to the repercussions of the pandemic, the Company expected to have its highest production and gross profit to date in the 2nd quarter. Management is now expecting this to be achievable in the 3rd quarter. Based on the preliminary results being finalized for the 2nd quarter of 2020, AABB is updating its annual gross profit budget and is projecting it to exceed $12 million in 2020.
