Record Revenues and High Margins

(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

 “Franco-Nevada’s diversified portfolio outperformed in the first quarter generating record revenues and an 85% Adjusted EBITDA Margin,” stated Paul Brink President and CEO. “Antamina, Cobre Panama, and Hemlo made strong contributions along with our Energy assets that benefitted from a recovery in prices. We were delighted, post quarter-end, to acquire the Vale Royalty Debentures that, along with our Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Company investment, add to our base of low-risk long-life cash flow. The transaction adds to the diversity of our portfolio while it remains more than 80% precious metals focused. Following the acquisition, we have revised our guidance and outlook and now expect 25% growth in revenue over the next five years. Our primary focus is on adding further precious metal assets to the portfolio.”

At today’s annual meeting, the Hon. David R. Peterson stepped down as the Chair of the Compensation and ESG Committee and, after more than 13 years, as a Director of Franco-Nevada. The Board thanked Mr. Peterson for his outstanding leadership, consensus-building contributions and many years of service.

For Q1/2021, revenue was sourced 85.4% from gold and gold equivalents (61.6% gold, 15.4% silver, 6.3% PGM and 2.1% other mining assets). Geographically, revenue was sourced 90.4% from the Americas (28.8% South America , 22.1% Central America & Mexico , 21.5% U.S. and 18.0% Canada ).

Portfolio Additions

  • Vale Royalty Debentures: As previously announced, on April 16, 2021 , the Company acquired 57 million of Vale S.A.’s (“Vale”) outstanding participating debentures (“Royalty Debentures”) for $538 million . Royalty payments are made on a semi-annual basis on March 31st and September 30th of each year reflecting sales in the preceding half calendar year period. The first payment for H1/2021 will be payable to Franco-Nevada on September 30, 2021 , reflecting a net sales royalty for the period January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 .
  • Investment in Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation: As previously announced, Franco-Nevada has accumulated a 9.9% equity investment in Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation (“LIORC”). LIORC normally pays cash dividends from net income derived from Iron Ore Company of Canada to the maximum extent possible, while maintaining appropriate levels of working capital.
  • Séguéla Royalty: On March 30, 2021 , the Company acquired a 1.2% NSR on Roxgold Inc.’s (“Roxgold”) Séguéla gold project in Côte d’Ivoire for $15.2 million ( A$20.0 million ). The royalty agreement is subject to a buy-back at the option of Roxgold of up to 50% of the royalty at a pro rata portion of the purchase price for a period of up to three years after closing. In April 2021 , Fortuna Silver Mines agreed to acquire Roxgold.

Revised 2021 Guidance and 5-Year Outlook

As previously announced, reflecting the acquisition of the Vale Royalty Debentures, Franco-Nevada now expects attributable royalty and stream sales in 2021 to total 580,000 to 615,000 GEOs from our Mining assets, an increase from 555,000 to 585,000 GEOs previously and additional revenue of $115 to $135 million from our Energy assets. For 2021 guidance, silver, platinum, palladium and iron ore prices have been converted to GEOs using commodity prices of $1,750 /oz Au, $25.00 /oz Ag, $1,100 /oz Pt, $2,200 /oz Pd, and $150 /t Fe 65%. The WTI oil price and Henry Hub natural gas price are assumed to average $55 per barrel and $2.50 per mcf. We estimate depletion expense to be $265 to $300 million .

For its 5-year outlook, Franco-Nevada now expects its attributable GEO sales to be between 630,000 and 660,000 GEOs by 2025, an increase from 600,000 to 630,000 GEOs stated previously and additional revenue of $150 to $170 million from our Energy assets. The commodity price assumptions (excluding Fe 65% at $89 /t) are the same as those used for our 2021 guidance and we assumed no other acquisitions other than the Condestable stream, Séguéla royalty and Royalty Debentures.

Please see our annual MD&A for more details on our guidance.

Q1/2021 Portfolio Updates

Gold Equivalent Ounces Sold: GEOs sold for the quarter were 149,575, an increase of 10.8% from the 134,941 sold in Q1/2020. Higher contributions from Antamina, Hemlo , Cobre Panama and the recently acquired Condestable stream were partly offset by lower contributions from Sudbury and Guadalupe-Palmarejo.

South America :

  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were higher in Q1/2021, reflecting an increase in ounces sold and higher silver prices than one year earlier.
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were higher in Q1/2021 than one year earlier due to variations in the copper concentrate shipments.
  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold in Q1/2021 were relatively consistent with Q1/2020. Production at Candeleria was higher this quarter than in the previous year due to higher mill throughput, but deliveries to Franco-Nevada remained flat due to timing of concentrate shipments. Precious metal production is expected at higher rates later in the year as the mine plan accesses higher grade ore.
  • Condestable (gold and silver stream) – Franco-Nevada received its first deliveries from the recently acquired stream, with the asset contributing an incremental 3,255 GEOs in the quarter.
  • Cerro Moro (2% royalty) – Yamana reported that Cerro Moro returned to a more normalized activity level during the quarter following COVID-19 challenges in the prior year, and expects further improvements as the vaccination program ramps up in Argentina .
  • Taca Taca (1% royalty) – In November 2020 , First Quantum declared a maiden Mineral Reserve of over 7.7 million tonnes of contained copper and, in March 2021 , filed an updated technical report. First Quantum is continuing with pre-development and feasibility activities.

Central America & Mexico :

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were higher in Q1/2021 than one year earlier, as the mine continues its ramp-up. First Quantum reported record production at the mine in Q1/2021. 19.6 Mt of ore was processed in the quarter. Mining is expected to transition to softer ore later in the year and First Quantum is targeting 85 Mtpa of throughput for 2021.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – Sales from Guadalupe-Palmarejo were lower than in the same quarter in 2020. GEOs sold in the prior year period benefitted from higher feed grades and included 1,695 GEOs held in inventory at December 31, 2019 .

U.S.:

  • Stillwater (5% royalty) – GEOs from Stillwater increased from one year earlier, reflecting higher PGM production and strong platinum and palladium prices during the quarter.
  • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – In April 2021 , i-80 Gold announced positive results from its drill programs at El Niño, Phase 1 open pit and Phase 3 project. At El Niño, development of a ramp to access the deeper mineralization is under way and is expected to be completed in Q1 2023.
  • Castle Mountain (2.65% royalty) – In March 2021 , Equinox Gold announced a positive feasibility study for the Phase 2 expansion. The Phase 2 project will expand run-of-mine heap leaching and incorporate milling of higher-grade ore, increasing production to an average of 218,000 ounces per year for 14 years followed by leach pad rinsing to recover residual gold. Life-of-mine production is estimated at 3.4 million ounces of gold.
  • Marigold (1.75-5% royalties) : In March 2021 , SSR Mining announced updated Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources as at December 31, 2020 . Including pad inventory, Mineral Reserves of 3.69 million gold ounces were reported, with M&I Resources inclusive of Reserves of 5.38 million gold ounces and Inferred Resources of 334,000 gold ounces.
  • Rosemont (1.5% royalty) : As Hudbay evaluates its next steps for the Rosemont project, drilling activities advance at the Copper World deposits which are largely on private land and covered by Franco-Nevada’s royalty. Hudbay believes Copper World has the potential to host at least four economic deposits with a relatively low strip ratio and may prove to be a viable open-pit operation that is either separate from or additive to the Rosemont project.

Canada :

  • Sudbury (50% gold and PGM stream) : In February 2021 , KGHM approved an updated life of mine plan which extends mining operations at the McCreedy West mine for another 5 years.
  • Detour Lake (2% royalty) – In March 2021 , Kirkland Lake Gold filed a technical report which included a new life of mine plan under which production is expected to average 680,000 to 720,000 ounces from 2021 to 2024, before increasing to 800,000 ounces in 2025 and reaching over 900,000 ounces in 2032. Kirkland Lake Gold also reported continued exploration success, including intersections in the Central Saddle Zone containing exceptional grades and widths.
  • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Revenue from Hemlo increased significantly relative to the same quarter in 2020 as the 50% NPI on Interlake benefitted from higher gold prices and increased production from grounds where Franco-Nevada has royalty interests. In addition, the Company recorded royalties of $8 million related to prior periods during the quarter.
  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI) Kirkland Lake Gold reported that the Macassa #4 Shaft remains ahead of schedule with shaft sinking reaching the 5,000-foot level at the end of the quarter.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – In March 2021 , Agnico Eagle and Yamana filed an updated technical report. Development of the Barnat pit extension was completed in 2020 and mining will gradually transition from the Canadian Malartic pit to the Barnat pit. Based on current Mineral Reserves, the open-pit life of mine extends to 2028 after which mining will gradually transition from the open pit to underground. The Odyssey underground project is expected to extend the life of the complex to at least 2039.
  • Hardrock (3% royalty) – In April 2021 , Equinox Gold completed its acquisition of Premier Gold and the acquisition of an additional 10% interest in Hardrock, increasing its stake to 60%. Orion will hold the remaining 40% interest in the project.
  • Red Lake ( Bateman ) (2% royalty) – In March 2021 , Evolution Mining agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Battle North. The acquisition is expected to create synergies between the Bateman project and Evolution’s existing operations in the region.
  • Valentine Lake (2% royalty) – In March 2021 , Marathon Gold completed a feasibility study that outlines a 13-year mine life with an average production profile of 173,000 ounces of gold per year between 2024 and 2033 and 56,000 ounces of gold per year between 2034 and 2036 from the processing of low-grade stockpiles. Marathon Gold also reported a maiden Inferred Mineral Resource estimate for the new Berry Deposit of 638,700 ounces.

Rest of World:

  • Aği Daği (2% royalty) – In April 2021 , Alamos announced its filing of an investment treaty claim against the Republic of Turkey for failing to grant routine renewals of key licenses and permits for Alamos’ Kirazli gold mine. Though Franco-Nevada does not have a royalty on the Kirazli mine, cessation of development activities at Kirazli are expected to negatively impact the advancement of the Aği Daği project.

Energy: Revenue from the Energy assets increased to $45.1 million in Q1/2021 compared to $26.5 million in Q1/2020. Revenues were positively impacted by higher oil and gas prices and the addition of royalty interests in the Haynesville shale play.

U.S.:

  • Haynesville (various royalty rates) – The recently acquired portfolio of assets contributed $7.2 million of incremental revenue in Q1/2021.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Revenue from Franco-Nevada’s interests in the Permian Basin increased compared to the same quarter in the prior year due to incremental volumes from new wells and higher realized commodity prices.
  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – The royalty contributed $7.6 million to revenue in Q1/2021, an increase from Q1/2020, reflecting higher realized prices.
  • SCOOP/STACK ( various royalty rates) – Royalties from SCOOP/STACK were relatively flat compared to Q1/2020 with higher realized pricing being offset by reduced drilling by the operators on royalty lands.

Canada :

  • Weyburn (NRI, ORR, WI) – Revenue from Weyburn contributed $9.1 million in Q1/2021 compared to $4.2 million in Q1/2020, reflecting the NRI royalty’s leverage to increasing oil prices.
  • Orion (4% GORR) – Revenue from Orion increased compared to Q1/2020 due to higher realized prices and despite slightly lower production levels for the quarter.

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 Franco-Nevada’s attributable share of production from our Mining assets, after applicable recovery and payability factors, 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 Q1/2021, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,794 gold (Q1/2020 – $1,583 ), $26.26 silver (Q1/2020 – $16.90 ), $1,161 platinum (Q1/2020 – $903 ) and $2,405 palladium (Q1/2020 – $2,284 ).
  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. 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.
  4. Margin is a non-IFRS financial measure which is defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue.
