Franco-Nevada Announces 2013 Year-End Results, Increases Dividend and Provides Outlook

TORONTO, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Franco-Nevada Corporation (TSX: FNV); (NYSE: FNV) today reported 2013 year end results realizing 241,402 Gold Equivalent Ounces(3) and $67.0 million in revenue for its oil & gas assets. Net income was $11.7 million, or $0.08 per share, which included after-tax impairment charges of $114.0 million. Adjusted Net Income(1) was $138.3 million, or $0.94 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $322.5 million, or $2.20 per share. For the fourth quarter of 2013, Franco-Nevada realized a net loss of $80.6 million, or $0.55 per share, which included after-tax impairment charges of $108.1 million. Adjusted Net Income(1) for the quarter was $30.5 million, or $0.21 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $77.3 million, or $0.53 per share.

An impairment charge of $107.9 million was recorded on our McCreedy precious metal stream located in Sudbury as KGHM International Ltd. announced that it would cease production of contact nickel ores as its off-take contract has been cancelled. In addition, an impairment of $24.2 million was recorded on our interest in Falcondo, a ferronickel operation located in the Dominican Republic, as Glencore Xstrata has put the operation on care and maintenance. Neither of these impairments impacted guidance, revenue or Adjusted EBITDA.

"In 2013, Franco-Nevada's portfolio performed very well despite lower gold prices," said David Harquail, President and CEO of Franco-Nevada. "We exceeded guidance for both our projected GEOs and oil & gas revenues. We expect our existing portfolio will continue to generate a growing number of ounces over the next five years. Franco-Nevada remains financially strong and debt-free and we expect to continue to grow with further investments."

"This is our sixth year of financial results since Franco-Nevada was reborn as a public company in late 2007. Over those six years, our business model has created real shareholder value with our share price outperforming both gold and gold equity benchmarks. In 2013, Franco-Nevada paid over $100 million in dividends to shareholders. We're pleased to continue the tradition of increasing dividends with an 11% increase to our dividend starting in the second quarter of 2014. We are proud to continue to differentiate Franco-Nevada as the gold investment that works."

Financial Results

For the fourth quarter of 2013, Gold Equivalent Ounces(3) ("GEOs") were 69,741 representing a 17.5% increase over the same period of 2012. Despite a 26.0% lower average gold price and a 12.9% lower average platinum price for the quarter, the Company saw growth in its GEOs from higher production levels from International and Canadian gold assets and PGM assets, partially offset by lower production from U.S. gold assets. In addition, our oil & gas assets generated $12.6 million in revenues during the quarter. Revenue was earned 83% from precious metals (69% gold and 14% PGMs) and 83% from North America and Australia (39% Canada, 14% U.S., 24% Mexico and 6% Australia).

The breakdown of revenue and GEOs(3) is as follows:

Corporate Updates

  • Cerro Moro: In January 2014, Franco-Nevada entered into an agreement with AngloGold Ashanti Limited to acquire an existing 2.0% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on Yamana's Gold Inc.'s Cerro Moro project located in Argentina for the Argentine peso equivalent of $23.5 million (at the official Argentine peso exchange rate) in cash.  The transaction is expected to close during H1 2014.

  • Klondex Gold: On February 11, 2014, Franco-Nevada entered into gold purchase and royalty agreements with Klondex Mines Ltd. ("Klondex") which provided for the pre-paid purchase of 38,250 ounces of gold and a 2.5% NSR on Klondex's Fire Creek and Midas properties, both of which are located in Nevada, U.S., for total consideration of $35.0 million in cash. Under the terms of the gold purchase agreement, the prepaid gold deliveries will be made at the end of each month with the first delivery due on June 30, 2014 and the last delivery due on December 31, 2018.  The annualized delivery schedule is: 6,750 ounces in 2014, 7,500 ounces in 2015 and 8,000 ounces in each of 2016, 2017 and 2018.  The NSR royalties will become payable following completion of the pre-paid deliveries.

  • Sabodala: On December 12, 2013, Franco-Nevada acquired a 6% gold stream on Teranga Gold Corporation's Sabodala gold project located in Senegal, Africa. Under the terms of the gold stream agreement, the Company funded a $135.0 million deposit in exchange for 22,500 ounces of gold per year, payable monthly, for the first six years of the agreement, after which the Company will purchase 6% of the gold produced from Sabodala. The Company will pay 20% of the market price of gold for each ounce delivered under the agreement.

  • On March 19, 2014, the Company extended its credit facility for an additional two years with the amended expiry being March 19, 2019.  As at December 31, 2013, Franco-Nevada had working capital(4) of $861.2 million, no debt with an undrawn $500.0 million unsecured five-year revolving credit facility.

2014 Guidance

For 2014, the Company expects attributable royalty and stream production to total 245,000 to 265,000 GEOs(3) from its mineral assets and revenue of $60 million to $70 million from its oil & gas assets. For the 2014 guidance, platinum and palladium metals have been converted to GEOs using assumed commodity prices of $1,300/oz Au, $1,400/oz Pt and $725/oz Pd. The WTI oil price is assumed to average $95 per barrel with higher discounts for Canadian oil than experienced in 2013.

Five Year Outlook (2018)

Our five year outlook is based upon the respective operators' public projections for each asset. Using the same commodity price assumptions as for 2014 and assuming no other acquisitions, the Company expects its existing portfolio to generate by 2018 between 300,000 to 325,000 gold equivalent ounces and $65 to $75 million in oil & gas revenues.  This outlook is also based on the following assumptions:

  • Cobre Panama: The outlook assumes a successful commissioning of the Cobre Panama project with operations performing at 50% capacity in 2018 of the annualized production levels projected by First Quantum.
  • Detour Gold:  The outlook assumes the successful ramp-up to full production of the Detour Lake mine to produce on average 657,000 ounces per year over the life of mine. No further expansion has been assumed within the next five years.

  • Tasiast:  The outlook assumes no material expansion within the five year period. Production levels in 2018 are assumed to be comparable to current production levels.

  • New mines:  The outlook assumes new mines will be contributing to the portfolio at levels close to the current operator's projections at Rosemont (owned by Augusta Resource), Phoenix (owned by Rubicon Minerals), Agi Dagi (owned by Alamos Gold), Duketon (comprising Rosemont and Erlistoun and owned by Regis Resources) and Peculiar Knob (owned by Arrium Limited). Increased production is expected by 2018 at Subika (operated by Newmont Mining) and Holt (operated by St Andrews).  Lower production is expected by 2018 at Palmarejo and Goldstrike. 

  • Oil & gas:  The outlook assumes the ongoing enhanced oil recovery capital program at Weyburn and Canadian oil price differentials returning to historic norms.

Portfolio Update

  • Gold - U.S.: Capital spending associated with Barrick Gold Corporation's ("Barrick") ongoing thiosulphate project at Goldstrike and a lower average gold price continued to impact the Company's net profit interest ("NPI") royalty which resulted in lower GEOs and revenue for the quarter. In addition, Barrick reported a reduction in the ore tons processed through the autoclave due to the construction activities. The thiosulfate project is expected to bring forward production which is expected to benefit Franco-Nevada in future periods. For 2014, the Company expects to earn slightly higher GEOs than 2013 levels. At Gold Quarry, where the royalty has minimum provisions, the Company expects to receive 11,250 ounces. GEOs from Marigold, Bald Mountain and Mesquite are expected to be lower in 2014 but will be more than offset by GEOs from the newly acquired Fire Creek asset. Overall GEOs from U.S gold assets are expected to be higher in 2014 than 2013.

  • Gold - Canada: GEOs from Canadian gold assets are expected to benefit from higher production from Detour Gold Corporation's Detour Lake mine and the Kirkland Lake royalty which was acquired in October 2013. In addition, Lake Shore Gold Corp. announced the completion of its mill expansion during the third quarter of 2013 which will benefit Franco-Nevada's royalty on the Timmins West property. Pretium Resources Inc. announced results from its bulk sampling program and filed a technical report which included a Mineral Resource estimate for its Brucejack project. The Government of Canada has announced that it will not issue the federal authorizations necessary for the development of the New Prosperity project, as a result the New Prosperity project continues to be excluded from Franco-Nevada's long term projections.  GEOs earned from Canadian gold assets in 2014 are expected to be in-line with 2013 levels.

  • Gold - Australia: Regis Resources Ltd. ("Regis") announced the completion of construction and the commencement of commissioning of its Rosemont Gold project, which comprises part of the Duketon project. In February 2014, Regis also announced a 4-6 week suspension of open pit mining at Garden Well and Rosemont due to flooding. Alacer Gold Corp. sold its South Kalgoorlie operations on which Franco-Nevada has a royalty, to a subsidiary of Metals X Limited, an Australian publicly-listed company. GEOs from Australian gold assets are expected to be slightly higher in 2014 than 2013.

  • Gold - Rest of World: First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ("First Quantum") announced the results of its review of the Cobre Panama project which included a larger project with installed capacity approximately 17% higher than the original plan and a revised development timeframe with first concentrate production expected in the fourth quarter of 2017. Franco-Nevada expects to fund approximately $200.0 million in 2014 under its precious metals stream agreement on the Cobre Panama project. Coeur Mining, Inc. reported annual production of 116,536 ounces of gold from Palmarejo and provided 2014 guidance of 87,000-95,000 ounces of gold. The Company holds a 50% gold stream over Palmarejo which includes an annual minimum of 50,000 ounces, payable monthly.  Overall Rest of World gold assets are expected to generate higher GEOs in 2014.

  • PGM Assets: Stillwater Mining Company has announced its 2014 guidance of between 520,000-535,000 ounces of palladium and platinum which is in-line with 2013 production levels. Production from KGHM International Ltd.'s ("KGHM") Morrison mine is expected to be in-line with 2013 levels. KGHM announced plans to reduce mining at its McCreedy mine due to the cancellation of a nickel processing contract. While mining of the contact nickel ore at McCreedy was not attributable to the Franco-Nevada's stream, the reduction in the labor force resulted in Franco-Nevada recording an impairment charge on this asset.

  • Oil & gas: Q4 revenues were lower than Q3 due to lower oil prices, higher differentials and pipeline apportionments. For 2014, revenues are expected to be comparable to 2013 with slightly lower volumes and price discounts offset by reduced capital spending.

Dividend Information

Franco-Nevada is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has decided to raise its dividend and move to quarterly dividend payments, both effective for the second quarter of 2014. The dividend will increase to $0.20 per share per quarter, an increase of two cents per share per quarter, resulting in an effective annual dividend of $0.80 per share compared to $0.72 per share paid in 2013.  The Board of Directors plans on formally declaring the second quarter dividend of $0.20 per share in May 2014 with payment by the end of June 2014. Moving to a quarterly dividend should reduce the foreign exchange exposure shareholders have been assuming with our monthly declarations.

NON-IFRS MEASURES:  Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Working Capital 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.

(1) Adjusted Net Income is defined by the Company as net income (loss) excluding foreign exchange gains/losses, gains/losses on the sale of investments, impairment charges related to royalties, streams, working interests and investments, unusual non-recurring items, and the impact of taxes on all these items.
(2) Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income (loss) excluding income tax expense/recovery, finance income and costs, foreign exchange gains/losses, gains/losses on the sale of investments, income/losses from equity investments, depletion and depreciation and impairment charges related to royalties, streams, working interests and investments.
(3)  GEOs include our gold, 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 and other minerals were converted to GEOs by dividing associated revenue by the average gold price for the period. For Q4 2013, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,272/oz gold (2012 - $1,719/oz); $1,397/oz platinum (2012 - $1,603/oz) and $726/oz palladium (2012 - $654/oz). For 2013, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,411/oz gold (2012 - $1,669/oz); $1,487/oz platinum (2012 - $1,552/oz) and $725/oz palladium (2012 - $645/oz).
(4)   Working capital is defined by the Company as current assets less current liabilities.
