Franco-Nevada Reports Strong Q3 Results

(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

New Precious Metals and Oil & Gas Investments Added

TORONTO, Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - "Franco-Nevada's diversified portfolio continues to perform very well" commented David Harquail, CEO. "We are seeing organic growth at some of our key precious metals assets such as Tasiast, Stillwater and Subika. We are also having good success at adding new investments. During the quarter, we closed the purchase of an oil royalty on the Orion Thermal Project in Alberta for C$92.5 million. We also announced an agreement to acquire an additional precious metals stream at Cobre Panama for approximately $119 million. Subsequent to quarter end, we entered into an agreement to acquire for approximately $110 million a new package of oil & gas royalties on the Delaware portion of the Permian Basin in Texas. Franco-Nevada will now have royalties on the top three most active shale basins in the U.S. On-top of its ongoing funding for the Cobre Panama project, Franco-Nevada has made over $500 million in new commitments in the past year to grow its portfolio and remains debt free."

For Q3/2017, revenue was sourced 88.8% from precious metals (66.7% gold, 15.6% silver and 6.5% PGM) and 81.5% from the Americas (13.3% U.S., 18.2% Canada and 50.0% Latin America). Operating costs and expenses increased year-over-year due to higher stream GEOs sold during the quarter. Oil & gas revenue increased 50.6% year-over-year, reflecting higher prices, increased payments from Weyburn as well as the addition of the STACK, Midland and Orion royalties. Cash provided by operating activities was $116.0 million, a decrease of 4.6% compared to Q3/2016, reflecting negative changes in non-cash working capital.

Corporate Updates

  • Cobre Panama: Franco-Nevada has agreed to add to its Cobre Panama precious metals stream for a net purchase price of approximately $119 million, following the expected syndication of one-third of the agreement to CEF Holdings Limited. First Quantum Minerals Ltd. intends to use the proceeds to partially fund its previously announced acquisition of an additional 10% interest in Cobre Panama from one of its joint venture partners, LS-Nikko Copper Inc. The terms of the additional stream, other than the ongoing price and the upfront funding, mirror the existing stream on Cobre Panama.

  • Orion Oil Royalty: Franco-Nevada acquired a 4% gross overriding royalty interest on the Orion Thermal Project in the Cold Lake region of Alberta from Osum Oil Sands Corp. ("Osum") for C$92.5 million. Orion is currently producing 7,500 – 8,000 barrels per day of bitumen. The just completed Phase 2A is expected to add 1,500 barrels per day over the next twelve months. Osum intends to use a portion of the royalty proceeds for its Phase 2B expansion project which is expected to progressively increase production through mid-2019 by an additional 3,000 barrels per day. The project has regulatory approval for production of up to 20,000 barrels per day. The transaction has an effective date of September 1, 2017.

  • Delaware Oil & Gas Royalties: Franco-Nevada has agreed to purchase a royalty portfolio on the Delaware portion of the Permian Basin in Texas for $109.8 million. The royalties consist predominantly of mineral title which provides a perpetual interest in royalty lands. The transaction will have an effective date of October 1, 2017 and is expected to close in February 2018 following title due diligence.

Q3/2017 Portfolio Updates

  • Precious Metals — U.S.: GEOs from U.S. precious metals assets decreased by 12.5% year-over-year with decreases at Goldstrike and South Arturo partially offset by an increase at Stillwater. In addition, a portion of ounces delivered from Fire Creek/Midas had not been sold as at quarter-end. 16,549 GEOs were earned from U.S. precious metal assets.


    • Stillwater (5% royalty) – In May, Sibanye Gold successfully acquired Stillwater Mining. First production at the Blitz project occurred in September which is expected to reach full production by late 2021 or early 2022. Blitz is anticipated to increase total PGM production from Stillwater by more than 50% to approximately 850,000 ounces per year.

    • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – Premier Gold stated that mining from the current phase has been extended into Q3/2017 and processing at Goldstrike could continue to early 2018. A further phase of open pit mining is under detailed review for which development could begin in early 2019. Drilling of the El Nino underground deposit is expected to begin later this year.

    • Marigold (0.5-5% royalty) – SSR Mining is currently evaluating an equipment replacement trade-off which is expected to be finalized by mid-2018. Under one scenario, production could increase to over 300,000 ounces per year if additional shovels and trucks are added.

    • Castle Mountain (2.65% royalty) – NewCastle provided a new Mineral Resource estimate which includes total in-pit resources of 4.0 million ounces in the Measured & Indicated categories, a 9% increase versus the previous estimate.

    • Hollister (3-5% royalty) – Klondex began processing Hollister ore at the Midas mill which included the commissioning of a new CIL circuit in order to optimize recovery.

    • Bald Mountain (0.875-5% royalty) – Kinross expects production at Bald Mountain to be higher in the second half of the year with overall 2017 production to be double the 130,000 ounces produced in 2016.

    • Rosemont (1.5% royalty) – Hudbay released results of a feasibility study for the Rosemont project which outlined a 19 year mine life with annual copper production over the first 10 years of 127,000 tonnes. The final Record of Decision was received from the U.S. Forest Service in June 2017. Franco-Nevada's 1.5% royalty covers all commodities.

  • Precious Metals — Canada: GEOs from Canadian precious metals assets decreased by approximately 34.7% to 11,586 GEOs compared with Q3/2016, primarily due to reduced production from the Sudbury assets as well as an adjustment to the Q2/2017 accrual for the Hemlo NPI.


    • Brucejack (1.2% royalty) – Brucejack poured first gold on June 20, 2017, declared commercial production on July 3, 2017 and produced 82,203 ounces of gold in Q3/2017. Franco-Nevada's royalty begins after approximately 500,000 ounces have been produced.

    • Detour (2% royalty) – Permitting of the West Detour project will remain under the provincial environment assessment permitting process. While the provincial process is typically faster than the federal process, Detour has stated that it does not intend to change the overall timing for the development of West Detour which is scheduled to commence in 2025.

    • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Barrick filed a technical report for Hemlo outlining the life-of-mine plan and providing additional detail of the increased reserves previously announced.

    • Hardrock (3% royalty) – Joint venture operators Centerra Gold and Premier Gold submitted an Environmental Impact Statement / Environmental Assessment to initiate the formal environmental review process for the Hardrock project.

  • Precious Metals — Latin America: GEOs from Latin American precious metals assets increased 4.4% year-over-year, with 66,740 precious metal GEOs earned in Q3/2017, benefitting from increased deliveries from Candelaria and Guadalupe which were slightly offset by decreases from Antapaccay and Antamina.


    • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – Candelaria delivered 24,961 GEOs, compared to 16,807 GEOs in Q3/2016. Lundin Mining provided a Mineral Reserve update for the project which included a net increase to both Proven & Probable and Measured & Indicated estimates despite mining depletion. The substantial increase to the underground estimate could allow Lundin to optimize the mine plan as well as extend the mine life at Candelaria.

    • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – Antapaccay delivered 19,370 GEOs in Q3/2017, a decrease of 12.7% year-over-year, in line with the 2017 life-of-mine plan.

    • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – 12,575 GEOs from Antamina were sold during the quarter, a decrease compared to 19,975 GEOs in Q3/2016. The year-over-year decrease was expected, as 2016 was an exceptionally strong year of silver production for Antamina.

    • Guadalupe/Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – Guadalupe delivered 9,400 GEOs in Q3/2017, compared to 4,326 GEOs in Q3/2016 due to higher mining rates. Under the Guadalupe agreement, Franco-Nevada pays an ongoing cost of $800 per gold ounce received versus the inflation adjusted cost of $400 per gold ounce under the prior Palmarejo agreement.

    • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – During the quarter, Franco-Nevada contributed $72.4 million of its share of construction capital for the Cobre Panama project, or $175.0 million year to date, for a cumulative total contribution of $637.2 million of its maximum $1 billion commitment as of the end of Q3/2017. First Quantum reports that the project has advanced to 63% completion. Franco-Nevada expects to contribute a total of $240-$260 million of the original $1 billion commitment to the project in 2017.

    • Cerro Moro (2% royalty) – Yamana reports that the mine construction is proceeding on schedule with production expected in 2018.

  • Precious Metals — Rest of World: 23,581 GEOs from Rest of World precious metals assets were earned during the quarter, an increase of 12.4% year-over-year, primarily due to an increase in deliveries from MWS.

    • Tasiast (2% royalty) – Kinross announced plans to proceed with the Phase Two expansion at Tasiast. Phase Two is expected to increase mill capacity to 30,000 tonnes per day and produce an average of approximately 812,000 gold ounces per year for the first five years. The Phase One expansion remains on schedule for full production in Q2/2018 with Phase Two commercial production expected in Q3/2020.

    • Subika (2% royalty) – Newmont has begun underground mining at Subika with commercial production expected in the second half of 2018. The Ahafo mill expansion is expected to be in commercial production in the second half of 2019. Together, the Ahafo expansion projects (Subika underground and mill expansion) will increase Ahafo's production to 550 - 650,000 ounces per year for the first five full years of production (2020–2024). Franco-Nevada estimates that the majority of underground reserves are covered by its royalty.

    • Sabodala (fixed gold deliveries and stream) – Teranga Gold announced that, as at June 30, 2017, Sabodala has increased its Mineral Reserve to 2.7 million ounces of gold representing an increase of more than 400,000 ounces.

    • Karma (fixed gold deliveries and stream) – 4,453 GEOs were sold in the quarter, a decrease compared to 5,000 GEOs in Q3/2016, which included an additional month of deliveries.

    • Agi Dagi (2% royalty) – Alamos Gold has tabled a positive feasibility report for the project projecting annual production of 177,600 ounces of gold over five years. A positive preliminary economic assessment was also completed for the neighbouring Camyurt project on which Franco-Nevada also holds a royalty.

    • Duketon (2% royalty) – Gloster and Erlistoun, two satellite deposits at Duketon, commenced operations to provide additional mill feed. Regis Resources continues to actively explore the extensive land package.

    • At Sissingue (0.5% royalty), Perseus Mining reports that construction remains on schedule and first gold is expected in early 2018. At Ity (1.5% royalty), Endeavour Mining has reported an additional 1 million ounces of Measured & Indicated resource compared to the year-end 2016 estimate and a construction start on the CIL project.

  • Oil & Gas: Revenue from Oil & Gas assets increased to $12.5 million in Q3/2017 compared to $8.3 million in Q3/2016, reflecting higher prices and higher production levels year-over-year on the Company's Canadian assets, as well as the addition of the STACK, Midland and Orion royalties. The contribution from the new U.S. royalty assets is expected to become more significant after 2017.

However, there can be no assurance that forward looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Investors are cautioned that forward looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Franco-Nevada cannot assure investors that actual results will be consistent with these forward looking statements and investors should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements due to the inherent uncertainty therein.

NON-IFRS MEASURES: Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA 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 mineral 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 Q3/2017, the average commodity prices per ounce were as follows: $1,278 gold (Q3/2016 - $1,335), $16.83 silver (Q3/2016 - $19.62), $953 platinum (Q3/2016 - $1,084) and $901 palladium (Q3/2016 - $676). For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,251 gold (YTD/2016 - $1,258), $17.17 silver (YTD/2016 - $17.20), $958 platinum (YTD/2016 - $1,001) and $829 palladium (YTD/2016 - $590).

  2. 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; foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses and unusual non-recurring items.

  3. 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.
