While Copalquin remains our flagship property, management intends to acquire producing opportunities in Mexico. Negotiations are currently underway on several fronts to achieve this goal. WHY? Benefits of being a producer opposed to exploration only: –Cash flow, Cash flow, Cash flow –Higher Resources Valuations –Valuations based on EBITDA –More participation from institutions –Research coverage recognition Short-Term Goals
Future Financing Initiatives Negotiations are currently being discussed with those active in this region and UC’s focus will be to finance through more traditional methods with Capital Partners. * Equity * Debt * Convertible Debentures * Acquisition Financing
Long Term Objectives Build a small to mid-tier producing company over the next 3-5 years, with the objective of attaining a market cap of $300mm-$500mm and with the objective of attracting a major producer for a take-over. Future funding requirements would be in the $25mm-$125mm range.
