Stornoway Diamond Corp reports loss from profit a year earlier

16 september 2009

Canada's Stornoway Diamond Corporation reported a loss of $682,000 for the current quarter compared with net income of $11.7 million a year earlier, according to
Even taking into account an unrealized gain from the sale of an investment, its loss was $618,000, the firm announced in an interim financial report.
Meanwhile, Stornoway's deficit during the quarter rose 34 percent to $67.5 million.
"As an exploration stage company, it is currently unable to self-finance its operations," the firm said. "The recovery of the company’s investment in its resource properties and attainment of profitable operations, and its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the discovery, development and sale of diamond reserves, the ability to joint venture or sell its resource properties and the ability to raise sufficient capital to finance its operations," according to the company's financial statement.
The company said its management plans to seek additional financing, through equity financings, the sale of non-core assets or through other means to further the exploration and development of properties and to provide sufficient working capital. However, the firm stressed, there "is no assurance the company's management will be successful in these endeavors."
Stornoway said it would need to secure "some form of additional financing to continue operations into 2010."
