Franco-Nevada Delivers Strong Growth and Record Results

Initial contributions from Cobre Panama and Marcellus
(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - "Franco-Nevada's diversified portfolio performed very well in the third quarter," stated David Harquail, CEO.  "Record results were achieved across all our important production and financial metrics.  This strong growth has been driven by the start of precious metals deliveries from Cobre Panama and the addition of a new energy royalty in the Marcellus.  We expect further growth to come as Cobre Panama continues to ramp-up and our energy assets are further developed.  We are also very encouraged by the increased exploration and development activity by many of the operators on our royalty properties. For 2019, Franco-Nevada expects to be close to the high end of its previously announced guidance ranges.  Franco-Nevada continues to be the gold investment that works."

For Q3/2019, revenue was sourced 84.1% from gold and gold equivalents (64.1% gold, 10.1% silver, 7.3% PGM and 2.6% other mining assets) and 15.9% from energy (oil, gas and NGLs). The portfolio's objective is to maintain a focus on precious metals (gold, silver and PGM) with a target of no more than 20% from energy. Geographically, revenue was sourced 84.7% from the Americas (47.4% Latin America, 20.3% U.S. and 17.0% Canada).

Corporate Updates

  • Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG"): In September, Franco-Nevada announced its commitment to the Responsible Gold Mining Principles established by the World Gold Council (the "WGC"). Franco-Nevada has played an active role in the WGC, including the establishment of the principles. Franco-Nevada has also achieved top rankings from two separate ESG rating agencies. Sustainalytics currently ranks Franco-Nevada 1 out of 104 companies in the Precious Metals (Industry Group) and 1 out of 74 companies in the Gold (Subindustry Group). In 2019, Franco-Nevada received an MSCI ESG Rating of "AA".

  • Succession Announcements: At the May 6, 2020 AGM, the board of Franco-Nevada intends to appoint David Harquail as the non-executive Chair of the board of directors, Pierre Lassonde as Chair Emeritus, and Paul Brink as President and Chief Executive Officer and to nominate Mr. Brink for election as a director of Franco-Nevada. On September 9, 2019, Franco-Nevada announced that Elliott Pew joined the board as a new director.

  • At-the-Market Equity Program & Debt: In Q3/2019, the Corporation issued 884,000 shares under its at-the-market program for net proceeds of $83.0 million. Some of the proceeds were used to pay down debt, such that the outstanding balance was $245 million as of September 30, 2019, and is $180 million as of today's date.

  • Marcellus: On July 22, 2019, Franco-Nevada acquired from Range Resources Corporation a 1% overriding royalty interest on approximately 350,000 acres in the Marcellus for a gross purchase price of $300 million. The royalty applies to existing production and future development from the Marcellus formation as well as future potential development from the Utica and Upper Devonian formations. The effective date for the transaction was March 1, 2019.

    New Royalties: On September 25, 2019, Franco-Nevada acquired two royalties for $6.0 million including a 2% NSR on a property owned by Newmont Goldcorp adjoining the Musselwhite Mine and a 1.5% NSR on Nevada Gold Mines' Rain/Emigrant and Saddle properties located at the south end of the Carlin Trend.


Q3/2019 Portfolio Updates

Gold Equivalent Ounces:  GEOs sold for the quarter were 133,219, an increase of 11.0% from the 120,021 sold in Q3/2018.  Cobre Panama, Stillwater, Hemlo, and Brucejack contributed to the year-over-year increase which was slightly offset by lower contributions from Antamina and Fire Creek/Midas.

Latin America:

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – Cobre Panama declared commercial production effective as of September 1, 2019, one month ahead of schedule. First Quantum reiterated its guidance of 140,000 – 175,000 tonnes of copper for 2019. Franco-Nevada expects deliveries in 2019 to be closer to the top end of the prior guidance of 20,000 – 40,000 GEOs in 2019 with further growth expected in 2020 as the operation continues its ramp-up.
  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – Candelaria has resumed normal operations and production from the mine increased year-over-year. However, GEOs sold from Candelaria in the quarter were slightly lower year-over-year due to timing of deliveries and sales. Production is expected to be higher next quarter as ore is sourced directly from the open pit and less from the low grade stockpile and may benefit from the Candelaria Underground South Sector which is now operational.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – Deliveries from Guadalupe-Palmarejo increased year-over-year, but GEOs sold were lower as 2,390 ounces received in Q3/2019 were sold subsequent to quarter end. Production at the La Nación deposit, located between the Independencia and Guadalupe mines and predominantly on stream lands, started during the quarter and is expected to ramp-up through the end of 2019.
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs earned from Antapaccay were slightly lower year-over-year as anticipated from the life of mine plan.
  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs earned from Antamina were lower year-over-year as anticipated from the life of mine plan. Due to the higher gold prices, the number of silver ounces converted to GEOs also negatively impacted results.


U.S.:

  • Stillwater (5% royalty)Stillwater benefitted from a strong quarter as volumes increased due to the continued ramp-up of the Blitz project as well as higher palladium prices. The Blitz project is anticipated to increase total PGM production from Stillwater to approximately 850,000 ounces per year by late 2021 or early 2022 from the 592,608 ounces produced in 2018.
  • Goldstrike (2-4% royalty & 2.4-6% NPI); Gold Quarry (7.29% royalty) – The Nevada Gold Mines joint venture between Barrick and Newmont Goldcorp may reprioritize ore sources to various processing plants. Synergies could positively impact the NPI at Goldstrike.
  • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – Joint venture operators Nevada Gold Mines and Premier Gold announced that commercial production at the El Nino underground has been achieved. Overall gold production in 2019 from El Nino is anticipated to surpass original expectations of 12,500 – 25,000 ounces (100% basis) and development of the Phase 1 open pit is ongoing.
  • Castle Mountain (2.65% royalty) – Phase 1 production is targeted by the operator for 2020 which anticipates production of 45,000 ounces per year for 3 years. Phase 2 anticipates production increasing to approximately 200,000 ounces per year. Franco-Nevada's royalty covers the entire project and includes a 10-mile area of interest.
  • Rosemont (1.5% royalty) – In August 2019, the U.S. District Court of Arizona overturned the issuance of the Final Record of Decision from 2017 and, as a result, Hudbay may not proceed with construction at this time.


Canada:

  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI)Kirkland Lake continues to advance the construction of the #4 Shaft at the Macassa mine with the goal of increasing production to over 400,000 ounces per year from the 240,126 ounces produced in 2018. Underground drilling continues to expand the South Mine Complex which may benefit Franco-Nevada's other royalties on the project.
  • Dublin Gulch (Eagle) (1-1.5% royalty) – Victoria Gold announced the first gold pour at the Eagle Gold Mine. Franco-Nevada's royalty covers the entire deposit.
  • Hardrock (3% royalty) – An updated Mineral Resource estimate was announced for the Hardrock project which increased the Measured and Indicated Resource to 7.1 million ounces (147.5 million tonnes grading 1.50 grams per tonne), an 11% increase from the 2016 estimate.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – Exploration programs continue to evaluate several deposits to the east of the Canadian Malartic open pit which have the potential to provide new sources of ore for the Canadian Malartic mill. These are mostly underground zones, some of which are partially covered by Franco-Nevada's royalty.


Rest of World:

  • Tasiast (2% royalty) Kinross announced that it is proceeding with the Tasiast 24k project, which is expected to increase throughput capacity at Tasiast to 24,000 tpd from the current capacity of 12,000 tpd.
  • Subika (2% royalty) – Newmont Goldcorp declared commercial production at the Ahafo Mill Expansion during the quarter, following the successful completion of the Subika Underground in Q4/2018.  The two projects are expected to increase annual gold production to between 550,000 - 650,000 ounces per year through 2024, compared to 436,000 ounces produced in 2018.


Energy:  Revenue from the energy assets increased to $37.5 million in Q3/2019 compared to $26.2 million in Q3/2018, reflecting contributions from new investments in the Marcellus and in the SCOOP/STACK by the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental but offset by lower commodity prices compared to Q3/2018.


U.S.:

  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – The newly acquired royalty contributed $13.1 million to revenue in Q3/2019, which included revenue from the effective date of March 1, 2019.
  • SCOOP/STACK (various royalty rates) – The SCOOP/STACK assets generated $6.8 million in revenue in Q3/2019 versus $5.3 million in Q3/2018 with the increase due to additional contribution from the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental. In Q3/2019, Franco-Nevada contributed $19.6 million to the Royalty Acquisition Venture and its remaining commitment through December 31, 2021 is $152.1 million.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Franco-Nevada's interests in the Permian Basin earned revenue of $5.3 million in Q3/2019 versus $6.9 million in Q3/2018, reflecting lower lease bonus revenue, a decline in some high-royalty interest wells, and a decrease in realized prices.


Canada:

  • Weyburn (NRI, ORR, WI)Weyburn contributed $7.9 million in revenue in Q3/2019 versus $10.6 million in Q3/2018. Lower revenues were primarily a result of lower realized commodity prices in the quarter.
  • Orion (4% GORR) – Orion generated $2.7 million in revenue in Q3/2019 versus $1.4 million in Q3/2018. Revenues were significantly higher as a result of increased production volumes from the asset and a recovery in price differentials for heavy oil.


Dividend Declaration

Franco-Nevada is pleased to announce that its board of directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share.  The dividend will be paid on December 19, 2019 to shareholders of record on December 5, 2019 (the "Record Date").  The Canadian dollar equivalent is to be determined based on the daily average rate posted by the Bank of Canada on the Record Date.  Under Canadian tax legislation, Canadian resident individuals who receive "eligible dividends" are entitled to an enhanced gross-up and dividend tax credit on such dividends.

NON-IFRS MEASURES:  Cash Costs, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Net Income are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.  These measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS.  Other companies may calculate these measures differently. For a reconciliation of these measures to various IFRS measures, please see below or the Company's current MD&A disclosure found on the Company's website, on SEDAR and on EDGAR. Comparative information has been recalculated to conform to current presentation.

  1. GEOs include our gold, silver, platinum, palladium and other mining assets. GEOs are estimated on a gross basis for NSR royalties and, in the case of stream ounces, before the payment of the per ounce contractual price paid by the Company. For NPI royalties, GEOs are calculated taking into account the NPI economics. Platinum, palladium, silver and other minerals are converted to GEOs by dividing associated revenue, which includes settlement adjustments, by the relevant gold price. The gold price used in the computation of GEOs earned from a particular asset varies depending on the royalty or stream agreement, which may make reference to the market price realized by the operator, or the average for the month, quarter, or year in which the mineral was produced or sold. For Q3/2019, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,474 gold (2018 - $1,213), $17.02 silver (2018 - $14.99), $883 platinum (2018 - $814) and $1,533 palladium (2018 - $953). For YTD/2019, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,363 gold (YTD/2018 - $1,318), $15.83 silver (YTD/2018 - $16.65), $849 platinum (YTD/2018 - $941) and $1,452 palladium (YTD/2018 - $1,008).
  2. Cash Costs attributable to GEO production and Cash Costs per GEO are non-IFRS financial measures. Cash Costs attributable to GEO production is calculated by starting with total costs of sales and excluding depletion and depreciation, costs not attributable to GEO production such as our Energy operating costs, and other non-cash costs of sales such as costs related to our prepaid gold purchase agreement. Cash Costs is then divided by GEOs sold, excluding prepaid ounces, to arrive at Cash Costs per GEO.
  3. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and earnings per share ("EPS"): income tax expense/recovery; finance expenses; finance income; depletion and depreciation; non-cash costs of sales; impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on sale of royalty interests; gains/losses on investments; and foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses.
  4. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and EPS: foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses; impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on sale of royalty interests; gains/losses on investments; unusual non-recurring items; and the impact of income taxes on these items.
