Third Avenue Management Comments on DST Systems Inc. - Dec 10, 2015

DST Systems Inc. (NYSE:DST)

DST is the largest information processor for mutual funds in the US, and also offers software, securities processing and other services to financial services companies, insurance companies and third party administrators. DST’s offerings are high margin and high barrier to entry services that lower cost and increase service quality to its customers. DST has grown its book value at a 5-yearCAGR of over 14% and we think this growth will continue as DST continues to penetrate the “in-house” serviced mutual funds, still about 50% of the industry, and also as it grows into health care and insurance claims processing.

We have followed DST for many years, and were able to initiate a position on the heels of a choppy second quarter earnings report at a 20% discount to NAV, where the market became concerned about higher security and compliance investments and the risk of a large customer, Cigna, transitioning away a portion of its processing business. These short term concerns pressured the shares, and overlooked the positives of i) abating mutual fund sub account conversion activity, winding down by year-end 2015, ii) the continued monetization of non-core investments, including State Street shares, pacing at approximately $100 million per quarter and iii) robust share repurchase activity. Moreover, since his appointment in August 2014, CEO Steve Hooley has been undertaking a review of all business units, to drive margin expansion, exit non-core units including record keeping and UK accounting and strategically investing to leverage the emerging demand for data analytics from DST customers. We believe this quality franchise will see increasing demand for its services and increased margin leverage from internal initiatives that should drive double digit equity compounding over the foreseeable future.

Dundee Sustainable Technologies' Cyanide-Free Gold Extraction Process Receives Canadian Environmental Technology Certification by ETV Verification Program

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2016) - Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST" or the "Corporation") (CSE:DST) is pleased to announce that it has received, from Environment Canada, through the Canadian Environmental Technology Verification Program ("ETV"), an independent certification of the performances of its cyanide-free gold extraction process (the "DST Gold Process"). The certification confirms that the DST Gold Process successfully extracted an average of 81%, with a maximum of 90%, of the gold content from a refractory gold bearing pyrite concentrate, while the cyanide extraction process achieved an average of 71% on the same material. This material is from a jurisdiction which has restricted the use of cyanide within its territory. This refractory concentrate was chosen due to the difficulty of extracting its gold using conventional processes, hence demonstrating the effectiveness of the DST Gold Process. Throughout the ETV program, a total of 170 tonnes of gold bearing refractory pyrite concentrate were processed. The performance test sampling was conducted at DST's demonstration plant according to the test protocol developed by STS Canada Inc. and under its supervision. Samples were submitted for analysis to SGS Canada - Mineral Services - Lakefield, an accredited laboratory. All solid residues met environmental norms and DST's chlorination circuit delivered the anticipated gold recoveries which were higher on average than cyanide yields on same samples. In addition, the process successfully demonstrated its closed circuit operation with the recycling and regeneration of the reagents. John W. Mercer, President and CEO of DST stated: "We consider this an important endorsement of the DST Gold Process; demonstrating its potential as an interesting alternative to cyanide". DST is currently working on projects for the commercialization of its technologies in Canada, Argentina, Bulgaria, Chile, Ireland, Namibia and Peru. About Canadian Environmental Technology Verification Environmental Technology Verification ("ETV") provides an independent evaluation of new technologies with a view to validate environmental claims so that users, developers, regulators, and other parties can make informed decisions about purchasing, applying and regulating innovative technologies. Verification builds vendor credibility and buyer confidence by providing assurance that environmental performance claims are valid, credible and supported by high quality, independent test data and information. ETV was introduced in Canada in 1997 to support the implementation of innovative environmental technologies. ETV is delivered by GLOBE Performance Solutions under a license agreement from Environment Canada. About Dundee Sustainable Technologies, a company controlled by Dundee Corporation The Corporation is engaged in the development of environment-friendly technologies for the treatment of materials in the mining industry. Through the development of patented, proprietary processes, DST extracts precious and base metals from ores, concentrates and tailings, while stabilizing contaminants such as arsenic, which could not otherwise be extracted or stabilized with conventional processes because of metallurgical issues or environmental considerations. At present, DST most advanced proprietary processes are associated to the extraction of precious metals using a chlorination process which provides a cyanide-free alternative for the exploitation of gold deposits. The primary benefits of this innovative technology are shorter processing times, a closed-loop operation eliminating the need for costly tailings pond, and a reduced environmental footprint related to the inert and stable characteristics of the cyanide free tailings. The chlorination process developed by DST is a recognized "green technology" for which it was awarded a $5 million grant from the Government of Canada to assist in the construction and operation of a demonstration plant. The plant will serve as a demonstration platform for the chlorination process on an industrial scale and under continuous operating conditions. In addition to this chlorination process, DST operates a pilot plant designed to demonstrate its arsenic stabilization process which is designed for the sequestration of arsenic in a stable glass form. This process is becoming an attractive solution to segregate the arsenic and is therefore opening opportunities for materials considered to contain too much of this toxic material to be exploited or stabilized using conventional approaches. DST has filed, published and was granted patents for these processes in several countries.

Dundee Sustainable Technologies Proceeds to Demonstration Phase With ENAMI Concentrate

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST" or the "Corporation") (CSE:DST) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Empresa Nacional de Minería, Chile ("ENAMI") for the purchase of 125 tonnes of gold concentrate (the "Concentrate") to be processed using DST's gold extraction technology (the "Demonstration Phase"). This is part of a phased approach established between DST and ENAMI with the objective of implementing a commercial processing facility, utilizing DST's patented technology, in Chile. The Concentrate contains an estimated 115 g/tonne of gold, 9.0% copper and mercury content in excess of 600 g/tonne. This complex material is difficult to process using conventional processing methods without the associated environmental liabilities and metallurgical challenges. The Corporation was able, during its piloting campaign (Refer to September 23, 2015 and March 1, 2016 press releases), to removed 99.7% of the sulphide and 99.6% of the mercury content. The calcine material was then submitted to acid and water leaching where 99% of the copper was recovered as copper sulphate. DST's chlorination process that followed achieved a gold recovery of 98.8% and a final gold deposition over silica recovery of 99.8%. This is yet another step forward for the Corporation in its strategy for the commercialization of its technologies worldwide. About ENAMI, a Chilean state-owned company ENAMI's mission is to promote the small and medium size private mining sector in Chile, by supplying technical, financial, metallurgical, production and trading services to small and medium size miners. ENAMI's assets include one smelter, five processing plants and a network of technical support and facilities.

Dundee Sustainable Technologies Achieves Gold Extraction Yields 14% Higher than Cyanide in its Demonstration Program

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) - Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. ("DST" or the "Corporation") (CSE:DST) is proud to announce that it has successfully completed its demonstration program on a pyrite concentrate (the "Program") at its Thetford Mines demonstration plant (the "Plant") (refer to November 9, 2015 press release). This Program was initiated in July 2013 when the Corporation began the engineering and then the construction of the demonstration plant in order to demonstrate at an industrial scale its cyanide-free process for gold extraction. By achieving this important milestone, the Corporation is fulfilling another step of its strategy for the commercialisation of the technology. Throughout this Program, DST processed a total of 170 Tonnes of a gold and copper bearing refractory pyrite concentrate from a region where the use of cyanide is restricted. The Program demonstrated that the DST process had an average extraction yield 14% higher than cyanidation, with results up to 90% gold recovery. The Corporation submitted these results to the Environmental Technology Validation ("ETV") program of the federal government, for an independent review and validation. This examination process is underway and the report is expected in the coming weeks. The Program also allowed DST to confirm the efficiencies of the components of the Plant which responded well and according to expectations. In that regard, the oxidation circuit successfully removed 99% of the sulfide content while keeping full control over the gases to produce on-spec sulfuric acid that was shipped to DST's client. The chlorination circuit also delivered the anticipated copper and gold recoveries that were higher on average than cyanide yields on the same samples. Finally, the process successfully demonstrated its closed circuit operation with the recycling and regeneration of the reagents and all solid residues met environmental norms. With the Program completed, the Corporation will now proceed with the next step of its strategy to commercialize the technology. To that effect, the Plant will be used in 2016 to process gold concentrates from selected sites in order to produce technical-economic studies that will evaluate the operating expenses and capital expenditures of an industrial implementation of DST chlorination process.
About Dundee Sustainable Technologies, a company controlled by Dundee Corporation
The Corporation is engaged in the development of environment-friendly technologies for the treatment of materials in the mining industry. Through the development of patented, proprietary processes, DST extracts precious and base metals from ores, concentrates and tailing, while stabilizing contaminants such as arsenic, which could not otherwise be extracted or stabilized with conventional processes because of metallurgical issues or environmental considerations.
At present, DST most advanced proprietary processes are associated to the extraction of precious metals using a chlorination process which provides a cyanide-free alternative for the exploitation of gold deposits. The primary benefits of this innovative technology are shorter processing times, a closed-loop operation eliminating the need for costly tailings pond, and a reduced environmental footprint related to the inert and stable characteristics of the cyanide free tailings.
The chlorination process developed by DST is a recognized "green technology" for which it was awarded a $5 million grant by the Government of Canada for the construction and operation of a demonstration plant. The plant will serve as a demonstration platform for the chlorination process on an industrial scale and under continuous operating conditions.
In addition to this chlorination process, DST completed the construction of a pilot plant designed to demonstrate its arsenic stabilization process which is designed for the sequestration of arsenic in a stable glass form. This process is becoming an attractive technique to segregate the arsenic and is therefore opening opportunities for materials considered to contain too much of this toxic material to be exploited or stabilized using conventional approaches.
DST has filed, published and was granted patents for these processes in several countries.
