Operating Revenues

During 3Q15, net sales were US$200.1 million, a 35% decrease compared to the US$306.7 million reported in 3Q14. This was mainly explained by the decrease in gold, silver and copper prices as well as lower gold and copper volume sold.

Royalty income decreased 9%, to US$8.7 million in 3Q15 compared to the US$9.5 reported in 3Q14. This was due to lower revenues at Yanacocha (13% lower QoQ).

YANACOCHA

At Yanacocha (43.65% owned by Buenaventura), during 3Q15, gold production w as 242,454 ounces of gold, 3% lower than 3Q14 production (249,429 ounces). For the nine-month 2015 period, gold production was 706,433 ounces, 9% higher than 647,635 ounces in 9M14.

Gold production guidance at Yanacocha for 2015 is 880k – 920k ounces.

In 3Q15, Yanacocha reported net income of US$18.2 million compared to US$60.3 million reported in 3Q14. CAS in 3Q15 was US$630/oz, 20% higher than the US$526/oz reported in 3Q14 mainly due to a higher inventory write-down (US$19.9 million in 3Q15 compared to US$9.2 million in 3Q14) and higher workers participation.

Capital expenditures at Yanacocha were US$25.5 million in 3Q15, while for 9M15 was US$58.9 million.

Yanacocha still has a strong pipeline of growth projects: Quecher Main (prefeasibility), Chaquicocha Sulphides and Yanacocha Verde (scoping) and Maqui Maqui (exploration).

CERRO VERDE

At Cerro Verde (19.58% owned by Buenaventura), during 3Q15 copper production was 55,811 MT (10,928 MT attributable to Buenaventura), a 5% increase compared to 3Q14 (53,268 MT and 10,430 MT attributable to Buenaventura). For 9M15, copper production was 151,354 MT (29,635 MT attributable to Buenaventura).

During 3Q15, Cerro Verde reported a net profit of US$6.7 million compared to US$85.3 million in 3Q14. This was mainly due to lower sales explained by the decline in copper price (US$2.14/lb in 3Q15 vs US$2.98/lb in 3Q14), despite of the 12% increase in volume sold. For 9M15, net income was US$46.5 million (compared to US$321.7 million in 9M14).

Capital expenditures at Cerro Verde were US$385.1 million in 3Q15, and US$1,321.5 million in 9M15.

Cerro Verde’s plant expansion was 360K TPD, in-line with schedule and budget (more than 95% complete). In September 2015, one of the primary crushers and two mills started operations, resulting in the first production of copper concentrate coming from the new plant.

As of September 30, 2015, accumulated CAPEX of the expansion project was US$4.2 billion (out of US$4.6 billion budget). Full plant capacity is expected to be reached in 1Q16 and will become the largest concentration facility in the world.

Note:

EBITDA (Buenaventura Direct Operations) consists of earnings before net interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, share in associated companies, net, loss on currency exchange difference, other, net, provision for workers’ profit sharing and provision for long-term officers’ compensation.

EBITDA (including associated companies) consists of EBITDA (Buenaventura Direct Operations), plus (1) Buenaventura’s equity share of EBITDA (Yanacocha) (2) Buenaventura’s equity share of EBITDA (Cerro Verde), plus (3) Buenaventura’s equity share of EBITDA (Coimolache). All EBITDA mentioned were similarly calculated using financial information provided to Buenaventura by the associated companies.

Buenaventura presents EBITDA (Buenaventura Direct Operations) and EBITDA (including affiliates) to provide further information with respect to its operating performance and the operating performance of its equity investees, the affiliates. EBITDA (Buenaventura Direct Operations) and EBITDA (including affiliates) are not a measure of financial performance under IFRS, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. You should not consider EBITDA (Buenaventura Direct Operations) and EBITDA (including affiliates) as alternatives to operating income or net income determined in accordance with IFRS, as an indicator of Buenaventura’s, affiliates operating performance, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities, determined in accordance with IFRS, as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity.

APPENDIX 4: COST APPLICABLE TO SALES RECONCILIATION

Reconciliation of Costs Applicable to Sales and Cost Applicable to Sales per Unit Sold

Cost applicable to sales consists of cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization, plus Selling expenses. Cost applicable to sales per unit sold for each mine consists of cost applicable to sales for a particular metal produced at a given mine divided by the volume of such metal produced at such mine in the specified period. We note that cost applicable to sales is not directly comparable to the cash operating cost figures disclosed in previously furnished earnings releases.

Cost applicable to sales and Cost applicable to sales per unit of mineral sold are not measures of financial performance under IFRS, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. We consider Cost applicable to sales and Cost applicable to sales per unit of mineral sold to be key measures in managing and evaluating our operating performance. These measures are widely reported in the precious metals industry as a benchmark for performance, but do not have standardized meanings. You should not consider Cost applicable to sales or Cost applicable to sales per unit of mineral sold as alternatives to cost of sales determined in accordance with IFRS, as indicators of our operating performance. Cost applicable to sales and Cost applicable to sales per unit of mineral sold are calculated without adjusting for by-product revenue amounts.

The tables below set forth (i) a reconciliation of consolidated Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization to consolidated Cost applicable to sales, (ii) reconciliations of the components of Cost applicable to sales (by mine and mineral) to the corresponding consolidated line items set forth on our consolidated statements of profit or loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2015, and (iii) reconciliations of Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization to Cost applicable to sales for each of our mining units. The amounts set forth in Cost applicable to sales and Cost applicable to sales per unit sold for each mine and mineral indicated in the tables below can be reconciled to the amounts set forth on our consolidated statements of profit or loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2015 by reference to the reconciliations of Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization (by mine and mineral), Selling Expenses (by mine and metal) expenses and Exploration in units in operations (by mine and mineral) to consolidated Cost of sales, excluding depreciation and amortization, consolidated Selling Expenses and consolidated Exploration in units in operations expenses, respectively, set forth below.
