(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

Growing free cash flow and strong outlook

TORONTO, March 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - "I am pleased that Franco-Nevada is reporting its best results ever," stated David Harquail, CEO. "Record quarterly and annual results were achieved across all our important sales and financial metrics. Results benefited from the start of precious metals deliveries from Cobre Panama, strong production at other key assets and higher precious metals prices. Thanks to our diversified portfolio, we expect good overall growth in 2020 mostly driven by the continued Cobre Panama ramp-up despite a more conservative outlook for our energy assets.  Franco-Nevada is generating substantial free cash flow and, post year-end, is now debt free.  Franco-Nevada continues to be the gold investment that works."

For Q4/2019, revenue was sourced 88.4% from gold and gold equivalents (67.7% gold, 8.9% silver, 9.5% PGM and 2.3% other mining assets) and 11.6% 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% in revenue from energy. Geographically, revenue was sourced 84.9% from the Americas (47.1% Latin America, 19.3% U.S. and 18.5% Canada).

Corporate Updates

  • At-the-Market Equity Program ("ATM Program") & Debt: In Q4/2019, the Company issued 549,400 shares under its ATM Program for net proceeds of $53.0 million. Proceeds from the ATM Program were used to pay down debt such that the outstanding balance was $80 million as at December 31, 2019. This balance was subsequently repaid after year-end and Franco-Nevada is now debt-free.
  • Eagle's Nest & Noront Loan: On December 23, 2019, Franco-Nevada acquired a 1% royalty on Noront Resources' Eagle's Nest nickel, copper and PGM deposit in the Ring of Fire mining district of Ontario for $3.8 million. Franco-Nevada also extended the term of its $25 million loan to Noront to September 30, 2022.
  • Project 81: On November 22, 2019, Franco-Nevada acquired a 2% royalty on Noble Mineral's 55,000 hectare patented land package known as Project 81 near Timmins, Ontario, in exchange for Franco-Nevada agreeing to waive certain rights on Project 81. The royalty also covers the Crawford Nickel-Sulphide Project, which was recently spun out to Canada Nickel Company Inc.
  • Succession Plans: As previously announced, 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, Paul Brink as President & Chief Executive Officer and to nominate Paul Brink for election as a director.

2020 Guidance

In 2020, Franco-Nevada expects attributable royalty and stream sales to total 550,000 to 580,000 GEOs from its mining assets and revenue of $80 to $95 million from its energy assets. Of the royalty and stream sales from mining assets, 375,000 to 405,000 GEOs are expected from Franco-Nevada's various stream agreements. For 2020 guidance, silver, platinum and palladium metals have been converted to GEOs using assumed commodity prices of $1,500/oz Au, $17.00/oz Ag, $900/oz Pt and $2,000/oz Pd. The WTI oil price and Henry Hub natural gas price are assumed to average $45 per barrel and $2.00 per mcf, respectively. The Company estimates depletion expense of $260 to $290 million.  2020 guidance and 5‑year outlook below are based on public forecasts and other disclosure by the third-party owners and operators of our assets or our assessment thereof.

5-Year Outlook

Our outlook to 2024 assumes that the Cobre Panama project will have expanded its mill throughput capacity to 100 million tonnes per year starting in 2023. Using the same commodity price assumptions as were used for our 2020 guidance (see above) and assuming no other acquisitions, Franco-Nevada expects its existing portfolio to produce between 580,000 to 610,000 GEOs by 2024. Energy revenues are expected to range between $115 to $135 million, and assumes the remaining committed capital for the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental is funded.

Q4/2019 Portfolio Updates

Gold Equivalent Ounces Sold:  GEOs sold for the quarter were 153,396, an increase of 46.3% from the 104,877 sold in Q4/2018.  Cobre Panama, Candelaria, and Guadalupe-Palmarejo, Sudbury and Stillwater contributed to the quarter-over-quarter increase which was slightly offset by lower contributions from Antamina and the Goldstrike NPI.

Latin America:

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – First Quantum reported that Cobre Panama produced 147,480 tonnes of copper in 2019. For 2020, First Quantum expects Cobre Panama to produce between 285,000 - 310,000 tonnes of copper as it continues to ramp up. Franco-Nevada sold 43,554 GEOs from the mine in 2019 and in 2020, expects sales to be between 90,000 - 110,000 GEOs.
  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – Production at Candelaria increased quarter-over-quarter as the majority of the mill feed was higher grade ore sourced directly from the open pit. With the Underground South Sector now operational, underground production ramped up to 13,500 tpd, approaching the 14,000 tpd permitted. Lundin also reported that its mill optimization project is on track for completion in Q1/2020. In 2020, Franco-Nevada expects sales from its Candelaria stream to be between 70,000 - 80,000 GEOs.
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs sold from Antapaccay were slightly lower quarter-over-quarter due to anticipated lower grades based on the life of mine plan. In 2020, Franco-Nevada expects sales from its Antapaccay stream to be between 60,000 - 70,000 GEOs.
  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs sold from Antamina were lower quarter-over-quarter, reflecting lower copper grades, in-line with the life of mine plan. Due to a higher gold-to-silver ratio, the conversion of silver ounces to GEOs was also negatively impacted. In 2020, Franco-Nevada anticipates silver ounces sales from its Antamina stream to be at the mid-point of our long-term expected annual range of 2.8 million - 3.2 million ounces.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – Sales from Guadalupe-Palmarejo increased quarter-over-quarter, not including 1,695 ounces sold subsequent to year-end.
  • Cerro Moro (2% royalty) – We benefited from a first full year of royalties from Cerro Moro in 2019. Yamana has reported good exploration success at Cerro Moro and anticipates the mine to be one of the main catalysts for its production levels in 2022.

U.S.:

  • Goldstrike (2-4% royalty & 2.4-6% NPI) – Barrick reported reserve additions of 1.5 million ounces due to changes in the cut-off grade and mine design.
  • Stillwater (5% royalty)Stillwater benefited from strong palladium prices and the continued ramp-up of the Blitz project. Sibanye-Stillwater expects PGM production to increase to between 660,000 - 700,000 ounces in 2020, from 594,000 ounces in 2019.
  • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – Joint venture operators Nevada Gold Mines and Premier Gold announced that commercial production at the El Nino underground was achieved in October 2019.
  • Castle Mountain (2.65% royalty) – Phase 1 production is targeted by Equinox for Q3/2020 which anticipates production of 45,000 ounces per year for 3 years. Feasibility and permitting for Phase 2 is underway, which anticipates production increasing to approximately 200,000 ounces per year.

Canada:

  • Detour Lake (2% royalty) – On January 31, 2020, Kirkland Lake Gold acquired Detour Gold Corporation and intends to invest aggressively in exploration drilling at Detour Lake.
  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI)Kirkland Lake continues to advance the construction of the #4 Shaft with the expectation of increasing production at the Macassa mine to over 400,000 ounces per year from the 241,297 ounces produced in 2019.
  • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Royalties from Hemlo increased significantly quarter-over-quarter as the operation was modernized and refocused in 2019.
  • Dublin Gulch (Eagle) (1-1.5% royalty) – First gold at the Eagle Gold Mine was poured in September 2019. A full year of production is expected in 2020.
  • Hardrock (3% royalty) – An updated Mineral Resource estimate was announced in October 2019 for the Hardrock project which increased the Measured and Indicated Resource to 7.1 million ounces.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – Exploration programs continue to evaluate several deposits to the east of the Canadian Malartic open pit that are partly covered by Franco-Nevada's royalties.

Rest of World:

  • Tasiast (2% royalty) Kinross reported that Tasiast produced record annual production in 2019 of 391,097 ounces due to the Phase One expansion. The Tasiast 24k project is proceeding on schedule and on budget and is expected to double capacity.
  • Subika (2% royalty) – Newmont declared commercial production at the Ahafo Mill Expansion in October 2019. Annual gold production is expected to reach between 550,000 - 650,000 ounces per year through 2024.

Energy:  Revenue from the energy assets increased to $30.0 million in Q4/2019 compared to $18.2 million in Q4/2018, 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 Q4/2018.

U.S.:

  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – The recently acquired royalty contributed $4.9 million to revenue in Q4/2019 and the asset will benefit from its first full year of revenue in 2020.
  • SCOOP/STACK (various royalty rates) – Royalties from SCOOP/STACK increased quarter-over-quarter due to additional contributions from the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental. In Q4/2019, Franco-Nevada recorded contributions of $8.3 million to the Royalty Acquisition Venture and its remaining commitment through December 31, 2021 is $143.8 million.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Despite an increase in drilling activity on royalty lands, 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 almost doubled quarter-over-quarter due to higher realized prices and lower capital and operating costs in the quarter.
  • Orion (4% GORR) – Revenue from Orion was higher as a result of increased production volumes from the asset and a recovery in price differentials for heavy oil compared to the prior year period.

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 Q4/2019, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,480 gold (2018 - $1,228), $17.31 silver (2018 - $14.55), $907 platinum (2018 - $822) and $1,800 palladium (2018 - $1,157). For 2019, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,392 gold (2018 - $1,268), $16.20 silver (2018 - $15.71), $863 platinum (2018 - $881) and $1,539 palladium (2018 - $1,028).
  2. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and 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, costs not attributable to GEO sales 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 sold.
  4. 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 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.
