SWEF TERRAWINDS RESOURCES CORP. Files Annual Financial Results

TORONTO, April 29 /CNW/ - SWEF TERRAWINDS RESOURCES CORP. (the "Company") announces it has filed with Canadian securities regulators its annual financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") for the year ended December 31, 2010.  These documents will be available at www.sedar.com and www.sweflp.com.

On January 16, 2008, March 10, 2008, April 29, 2008, August 29, 2008, November 13, 2008, December 1, 2008, March 26, 2009 and July 24, 2009 management provided instructions to shareholders regarding the process for submitting tax indemnity claims and the status of the claims process.  Distributions of the funds held in trust by the Agent have commenced as the relevant taxation authorities have begun providing individual reassessments for the 2005 tax year allowing shareholders to make their tax indemnity claims.

Results of Operations

Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $7.2 million compared to a net loss of $3.4 million for the same period in fiscal 2009.  The decrease in net loss of $3.8 million is due primarily to $8.9 million of tax indemnity payment expenses that occurred in 2010 compared to $4.4 million in 2009. The effect of this increase is partially offset by an increase in future income taxes recoverable and lower administrative expenses for the Company as its operations reduce in size.

Interest income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $0.05 million compared to $0.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. The decrease of $0.05 million is due to persistent low interest rates through much of 2010 and less cash on hand to invest during fiscal 2010 compared to the same period in fiscal 2009.

Administrative costs for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $0.5 million compared to $0.9 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. The decrease of $0.4 million is attributable to higher professional fees, director fees, and an accrual for a claim related to the Interwind restructuring in 2009.

Future income tax recovery for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $2.1 million, compared to a recovery of $1.7 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. The future income tax recovery for the year ended December 31, 2010 arises due to the tax indemnity claims made in the period. The recovery position in 2010 increased by $0.4 million due to the higher number of claims made in 2010 when compared to 2009.
