 Franco-Nevada Reports Record Results for 2017
   Wednesday, March 07, 2018 5:00:00 PM ET

(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

"I am pleased that Franco-Nevada’s 10th full year since its IPO was its best year ever" stated David Harquail, CEO. "We achieved record results that were at the high end of our guidance for 2017. We are now looking forward to another phase of growth through 2022 with the ramp-up of Cobre Panama over 2019-2022, the first phase expansion of Tasiast later this year and the second phase in 2020, the expansion or start-up of a number of smaller mines over 2018 and 2019 and the 50% expansion of Stillwater by 2021. The on-going full-field development of our U.S. oil & gas royalties is tracking ahead of our original expectations. On top of that, our business development team has been very active adding new investments in precious metals, oil & gas and other minerals. Franco-Nevada remains debt free and is well positioned for another 10 years of success."

Corporate Updates

-- Cobre Panama: In September 2017, Franco-Nevada agreed to terms with First Quantum to purchase an additional precious metals stream on the Cobre Panama project for $178.0 million. This agreement was expanded to $356.0 million on January 22, 2018 to also include a precious metals stream on the 10% indirect interest held by Korea Resources Corp. The purchase price will be paid as a one-time advance payment expected to be made before the end of March, 2018. Franco-Nevada now has exposure to the precious metals produced from 100% of the ownership of the Cobre Panama project.

-- Delaware Oil & Gas Royalties: Franco-Nevada finalized the purchase of a royalty portfolio in the Delaware Basin, which represents the western portion of the larger Permian Basin in Texas for $101.3 million on February 20, 2018. The royalties are derived principally from mineral title which provides a perpetual interest in royalty lands. The transaction has an effective date of October 1, 2017.

2018 Guidance

In 2018, Franco-Nevada expects attributable royalty and stream production to total 460,000 to 490,000 GEOs from its mineral assets and revenue of $50 million to $60 million from its oil & gas assets. Of the royalty and stream production, 310,000 to 330,000 GEOs are expected from Franco-Nevada’s various stream agreements with no GEOs assumed from Cobre Panama in 2018. For 2018 guidance, silver, platinum and palladium metals have been converted to GEOs using assumed commodity prices of $1,300/oz Au, $17.00/oz Ag, $950/oz Pt and $1,050/oz Pd. The WTI oil price is assumed to average $55 per barrel with a $4.80 per barrel price differential between the Edmonton Light and realized prices for Canadian oil. The Company estimates depletion expense of $250 million to $280 million. 2018 guidance and 5-year outlook below is based on public forecasts and other disclosures by the third-party owners and operators of our assets or our assessment thereof.

5-Year Outlook

Our outlook to 2022 assumes that the Cobre Panama project will be fully ramped-up by 2022. From 2019-2021, scheduled fixed ounce payments from Midas/Fire Creek, Karma and Sabodala are expected to step down to longer-term royalty payments or stream deliveries. Using the same commodity price assumptions as were used for our 2018 guidance (see above) and assuming no other acquisitions, Franco-Nevada expects its existing portfolio to generate between 565,000 to 595,000 GEOs by 2022. Oil & gas revenues at the same $55 per barrel WTI oil price assumption are expected to range between $80 million and $90 million.

Q4/2017 Portfolio Updates

-- Precious Metals -- Latin America: GEOs from Latin American precious metals assets were consistent year-over-year. Precious metal GEOs earned from Latin America were 60,568 GEOs compared with 60,808 GEOs in Q4/2016.

-- Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) - During Q4/2017, Franco-Nevada contributed $89.4 million of its share of construction capital for the Cobre Panama project. Franco-Nevada at year-end has contributed $726.6 million of its total $1 billion commitment for the construction of Cobre Panama. Franco-Nevada expects to fund between $230 and $250 million in 2018 towards the $1 billion deposit. Recently, First Quantum announced expansion plans for the Cobre Panama throughput capacity to 85 million tonnes per annum and potential to accommodate a further increase to 100 million tonnes per annum after 2022.

-- South Arturo (4-9% royalty) - Joint Venture operators Barrick and Premier Gold announced a significant increase to Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources for the South Arturo operation. Phase 2 mining was completed in 2017 and the Joint Venture now expects to start development of the Phase 1 open pit in mid-2018.

-- Precious Metals -- Canada: GEOs from Canadian precious metals assets decreased by approximately 31.6% to 14,262 GEOs compared with Q4/2016 mainly due to reduced NPI payments from Hemlo and Musselwhite.

-- Brucejack (1.2% royalty) - Brucejack poured first gold on June 20, 2017, declared commercial production on July 3, 2017 and produced a total of 152,484 ounces of gold in 2017. Franco-Nevada’s royalty begins after approximately 500,000 ounces have been produced. Pretium submitted an application to increase production from 2,700 tonnes per day to 3,800 tonnes per day with a decision expected before the end of 2018.

-- Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) - Barrick had another successful exploration campaign at Hemlo in 2017 and added 397,000 ounces of Mineral Reserves (before mining depletion). Barrick has indicated that exploration will focus on the expansion potential of the underground operation.

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.

-- 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 Q4/2017, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,274 gold (2016 - $1,218), $16.70 silver (2016 - $17.18), $920 platinum (2016 - $944) and $993 palladium (2016 - $684). For 2017, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,257 gold (2016 - $1,248), $17.05 silver (2016 - $17.20), $948 platinum (2016 - $987) and $870 palladium (2016 - $613).

-- 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; 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; and foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses.

-- 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"): 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.
