Record earnings margin and strong organic growth

Franco-Nevada delivered record revenue, EBITDA and net earnings in the third quarter with all material Mining assets having returned to normal operations through the quarter. The Company continued to lead its royalty and streaming peers with the highest EBITDA margins and, in particular, with a record earnings margin of 55% in the quarter. “It is exciting for the future to see the level of organic growth across our portfolio of producing, advanced and exploration assets,” stated Paul Brink CEO. During the third quarter, 25 new royalties were added to the portfolio bringing the number of mining related assets to 316. The Company’s Energy assets also benefitted from a rebound in oil and gas prices. Franco- Nevada expects to be near the high end of its previously announced guidance ranges for 2020, assuming that the recent strike action at Candelaria is resolved and operations resume in the near term.

Corporate Updates

  • Amendment of Sabodala Gold Stream Agreement: On September 25, 2020 , Franco-Nevada amended its existing Sabodala gold purchase and sale agreement with Teranga Gold to compensate the Company for displacement from the processing of Massawa ore through the Sabodala processing facilities and to provide for certain protocols for the commingling of Sabodala and Massawa ores.
  • Alpala Royalty Interest: On September 11, 2020 , the Company completed its previously announced transaction to acquire a 1% NSR with reference to all minerals produced from the Alpala copper-gold-silver project in northern Ecuador for $100.0 million .
  • Freeport Royalty Portfolio Interests: On September 1, 2020 , the Company acquired a portfolio of 24 royalties from Freeport-McMoRan for $30.6 million in cash. The portfolio includes prospective royalties over Wallbridge Mining’s Fenelon (1% royalty), Martiniere (2% royalty) and Northway-Noyon (1% royalty) projects. It also includes producing royalties on Peñoles’ Milpillas copper mine in Sonora , Mexico ( $0.04 /lb copper), and on Ormat Technologies’ Neal Hot Springs geothermal operation in Oregon (2-3% royalty).
  • Rio Baker (Salares Norte) Royalty Interest: On September 23, 2020 , the Company acquired a 2% NSR on all mineral production from Gold Fields’ Rio Baker concessions in Chile for $5.0 million cash with contingent payments of up to $8.0 million . The Rio Baker claims cover the North-West extension of the Salares Norte deposit and the royalty acquisition now provides Franco-Nevada with exposure to 100% of the Salares Norte project.
  • At-the-Market Equity Program (“ATM Program”): In Q3/2020, the Company issued 144,900 shares under its ATM Program for net proceeds of $21.4 million .

2020 Guidance

Franco- Nevada expects attributable royalty and stream sales from its Mining assets to be near the high end of the previously provided 475,000 to 505,000 GEOs guidance, assuming that Candelaria operations resume in near term.  Revenue from Energy assets is expected to be near the high end of our previously provided guidance of $60 to $75 million . The Company expects depletion expense to approximate $225 million $245 million for 2020. For this guidance, silver, platinum and palladium metals have been converted to GEOs using assumed commodity prices of $1,800 /oz Au, $20.00 /oz Ag, $900 /oz Pt and $2,200 /oz Pd. The WTI oil price and Henry Hub natural gas price are assumed to average $40 per barrel and $2.00 per mcf, respectively. The 2020 guidance is based on public forecasts and other disclosures by the third-party owners and operators of our assets or our assessment thereof.

COVID-19 Updates

Franco- Nevada supports measures to address the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no known cases in the Company. The Company continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its portfolio of assets. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, temporarily reduced or curtailed production was announced in early 2020 by a number of operators of our Mining assets; however, all operations with the exception of Golden Highway have since resumed operations. Franco- Nevada has expanded its social commitments during the COVID-19 pandemic, with new programs to support mental health at the communities around Candelaria and water infrastructure for communities around Palmarejo-Guadalupe.

Q3/2020 Portfolio Updates

Gold Equivalent Ounces Sold: GEOs sold for the quarter were 134,817 an increase of 1.2% from the 133,219 sold in Q3/2019. Higher contributions from Hemlo and Candelaria were partly offset by lower contributions from Cobre Panama and Sabodala.

Latin America :

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – On October 28, 2020 , First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (“First Quantum”) reported that Cobre Panama was back into full production well ahead of schedule. Production guidance for 2020 has been updated by First Quantum. Copper production guidance for 2020 has been increased to 190,000 – 205,000 tonnes. Gold production guidance for 2020 has been increased to 75,000 – 85,000 ounces. Franco- Nevada sold 16,350 GEOs from the asset in Q3/2020.
  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – Franco-Nevada sold 20,204 GEOs from the asset in Q3/2020. On October 28, 2020 , Lundin Mining reported the temporary suspension of operations at Candelaria due to labour strikes by the Candelaria AOS Union and the Candelaria Mine Workers Union are currently on strike. Candelaria guidance was withdrawn by Lundin Mining on October 18, 2020 .
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were lower quarter-over-quarter due to anticipated lower grades based on the life of mine plan.
  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were lower quarter-over-quarter due to lower copper grades. On October 27, 2020 , Teck reported that Antamina operations performed at full production rates during Q3/2020 following a temporary shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – Sales from Guadalupe-Palmarejo were higher quarter-over-quarter. On October 28, 2020 , Coeur Mining reported strong quarterly production and improved operational performance at Palmarejo.
  • Cerro Moro (2% royalty) – Operations at Cerro Moro are back to the standard throughput expectation of 1,000 tpd following a COVID-19 curtailment, with productivity trending higher. Increasing production from the Zoe underground higher-grade mine in the fourth quarter is expected to position Cerro Moro for its highest gold production quarter of the year.

U.S.:

  • Stillwater (5% royalty) Stillwater benefited from strong palladium prices during the quarter. On August 27, 2020 , Sibanye-Stillwater announced that the U.S. PGM operations continued to operate largely uninterrupted.
  • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – Very positive drill results from expansion drilling at the El Nino underground mine were reported on September 21, 2020 .
  • Castle Mountain (2.65% royalty) – On October 15, 2020 , Equinox reported that first gold was poured from the Castle Mountain mine. The Phase 1 operation is expected to produce on average 45,000 ounces of gold annually with a feasibility study for the Phase 2 expansion targeted for completion in Q4/2020. Annual average production of 200,000 ounces is expected for Phase 2.
  • Mesquite (0.5-2% royalty) – On October 8, 2020 , Equinox announced that it had increased mineral reserves by 28% and measured and indicated mineral resources by 94% at its Mesquite mine in California .

On October 28, 2020 , Midas Gold reported that the comment period on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement had been completed.

Canada :

  • Detour Lake (2% royalty) – Production from the Detour Lake mine totaled 140,067 ounces in Q3/2020, a 6% increase compared to the previous quarter due to an increase in mining rates as well as a higher average grade. During the quarter Kirkland Lake announced additional high-grade intersections at the Detour Lake Saddle Zone. The new holes form part of the recently announced 250,000 metres exploration program. Kirkland Lake plans completion of the program by the end of 2021 to collect information for updated, and potentially expanded resource and reserve estimates.
  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI) – Production at Macassa totaled 38,028 ounces in Q3/2020. Mine production was affected by limited operating development being completed during reduced operations due to COVID-19 and by unscheduled downtime in the mill. On October 19, 2020 , Kirkland Lake reported that it had intersected exceptional gold grades from underground exploration drilling at Macassa near the contact of the South Mine Complex and Amalgamated Break.
  • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Revenue from Hemlo increased significantly quarter-over-quarter as the 50% NPI on Interlake benefitted from higher gold prices and increased production. In addition, the Company recorded NPI royalties of $13 million related to prior periods during the quarter. Q3/2020 production from Hemlo totaled 55,000 ounces. Barrick reported that it plans to extend the life of the Hemlo gold mine by transitioning it to a purely underground operation, as open pit mining at the mine starts winding down. Franco- Nevada’s royalties relate only to the downdip of the orebody accessed through the underground mine.
  • Golden Highway (Holt, Holloway and Taylor mines) (various royalty rates) – Golden Highway operations remain on suspension while Kirkland Lake continues to assess options for the future of the assets. On August 17, 2020 , Kirkland Lake announced it had entered into a strategic alliance with Newmont Canada with respect to exploration and development opportunities around the Golden Highway operations.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – Production at Canadian Malartic totaled 76,398 ounces in Q3/2020 and was above plan due to increased throughput. During the quarter Agnico Eagle announced 10 drill rigs are currently targeting the East Gouldie Zone and the exploration budget for 2020 has been increased to 107,000 metres. A resource upate is expected by year-end.
  • Island Gold (0.62% royalty) – On October 28, 2020 , Alamos Gold reported record quarterly production of 39,600 ounces from Island Gold. Positive results of its Phase III expansion study on Island Gold is expected to drive a 72% increase in average annual production to 236,000 ounces. During the quarter Alamos announced drill holes at Island East that extended high-grade gold mineralization up to 100 metres down-plunge from the nearest inferred resource block over significantly greater widths.
  • Valentine Lake (2% royalty) In September 2020 , Marathon Gold filed its Environmental Impact Statement for the Valentine Lake Project and on October 21, 2020 released further drill results for the Berry Zone. Marathon Gold is planning an initial mineral resource estimate at Berry by the first quarter of next year. The Berry Zone is located in the 6km long Sprite Corridor between the Marathon and Leprechaun deposits.
  • Red Lake ( Bateman ) (2% royalty) – On October 21, 2020 , Battle North Gold announced the feasibility study results for the Bateman Gold Project. The base case study outlines life of mine payable gold production of 602,987 ounces, averaging 73,835 ounces per year for 8.2 years from initial production.

Rest of World:

  • MWS (gold stream) Harmony Gold completed its acquisition of MWS from AngloGold Ashanti on September 30, 2020 .
  • Sabodala (gold stream) – Teranga Gold announced on August 21, 2020 the results of the pre-feasibility study for its Sabodala-Massawa gold complex. The pre-feasibility study supports the combined mineral reserve estimates and mine plan of Sabodala and the Massawa Project and includes a mine plan for the combined assets with average production for the first five years of 384,000 ounces of gold per year.
  • Duketon (2% royalty) – Production at Duketon totaled 81,567 ounces in its most recent quarter. On October 23, 2020 Regis Resources announced that the Rosemont underground continued to increase its production levels and that the drilling completed at the Garden Well Underground Project confirmed a wide, robust high-grade mineralised zone beneath the pit. Work on the Garden Well PFS is expected to be completed in the December quarter.

Energy: Revenue from the Energy assets decreased to $22.8 million in Q3/2020 compared to $37.5 million in Q3/2019. Revenues were negatively impacted by lower realized commodity prices and lower volumes associated with a reduction in drilling by operators.

U.S.:

  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – The royalty contributed $4.8 million to revenue in Q3/2020 reflecting consistent production volume and a NYMEX gas price of $2.14 /mcf.
  • SCOOP/STACK ( various royalty rates) – Royalties from SCOOP/STACK decreased quarter-over-quarter due to lower realized commodity prices and lower volumes due to reduced drilling by the operators within the play and on royalty lands. These factors offset contributions from additional royalties acquired under the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental, where the pace of acquisition has slowed in 2020.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Revenue from Franco-Nevada’s interests in the Permian Basin decreased quarter-over-quarter due to lower realized prices.

Canada :

  • Weyburn (NRI, ORR, WI) – Revenue from Weyburn contributed $7.2 million in Q3/2020 compared to $7.9 million in Q3/2019 due mostly to lower contribution from the Working Interest as a result of lower realized prices.
  • Orion (4% GORR) – Revenue from Orion decreased quarter-over-quarter due to lower realized prices. Production levels at the asset are now consistently ~20,000 bbls/day after a drop in the spring owing to low commodity prices.

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 production from our Mining assets and do not include Energy 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. Silver, platinum, palladium and other mining commodities are converted to GEOs by dividing associated revenue, which includes settlement adjustments, by the relevant gold price. The 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 price for the month, quarter, or year in which the mining commodity was produced or sold. For Q3/2020, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,911 gold (Q3/2019 – $1,474 ), $24.39 silver (Q3/2019 – $17.02 ), $903 platinum (Q3/2019 – $883 ) and $2,170 palladium (Q3/2019 – $1,533 ).
  2. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and earnings per share (“EPS”): impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on the sale of royalty, stream and working interests and investments; foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses; unusual non-recurring items; and the impact of income taxes on these items.
  3. Cash Costs attributable to GEOs sold and Cash Costs per GEO sold are non-IFRS financial measures. Cash Costs attributable to GEOs sold is calculated by starting with total costs of sales and excluding depletion and depreciation, and costs not attributable to GEO sales such as our Energy operating costs. Cash Costs is then divided by GEOs sold, excluding prepaid ounces, to arrive at Cash Costs per GEO sold.
  4. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and EPS: income tax expense/recovery; finance expenses and finance income; depletion and depreciation; non-cash costs of sales; impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on the sale of royalty, stream and working interests and investments; foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses; and unusual non-recurring items.
