NEWNORTH ANNOUNCES RESULTS FOR THE QUARTER ENDING MARCH 31, 2011

CALGARY, June 29, 2011 /CNW/ - NewNorth Projects Ltd. ("NewNorth") (TSXV:NNP) today announced its financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2011.

Mr. Greg Herndier, President and Chief Executive Officer of NewNorth, reports a net loss after tax of $347,000 which includes debenture interest of $139,000.

After tax loss per share, basic and diluted is $0.03.

Select information for the period:

  • Subsequent to the first quarter of 2011 and as of the date of this document, NewNorth has sold four units of the Vista Village project, a condominium project in Red Deer, Alberta.  The gross proceeds for these sales were approximately $617,000.  An additional 15 units have been conditionally sold as of the date of this document.
  • NewNorth sold its 50% interest in a rental property in Yellowknife, NWT on June 1, 2011.
  • At December 31, 2010, the Company's current ratio (current assets to current liabilities) is 15.88:1 and the adjusted debt to equity ratio is 0.48:1 which exceeds NewNorth's operating loan covenants requirements of a current ratio not to be less than 1.25:1 and an adjusted debt to equity ratio not to exceed 2:1.

Management believes that the value of the net assets of NewNorth significantly exceeds the current share value.

Two of management's goals in 2011 are to lower the cost of operating by paying out a portion of its debenture payable and to recapitalize the Company.  The above mentioned sales are the first step in the financial restructuring being undertaken by management.  These measures will allow management to refocus its efforts on key development opportunities.

NNP continues to add value to land holdings by obtaining the necessary approvals.  Having those approvals will allow NNP to begin to execute development plans.  NewNorth anticipates selling the balance of the Sheep River project this year. 

NewNorth is an integrated land and building development Corporation operating in Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
