Franco-Nevada Reports Q2 2013 Results

17:24 EDT Wednesday, August 07, 2013

TORONTO, Aug. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Franco-Nevada Corporation (TSX: FNV; NYSE: FNV) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Highlights include:

  • Net income of $21.6 million or $0.15 per share;

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $75.2 million or $0.51 per share;

  • Three gold royalty transactions completed for $62.0 million;

  • Working capital at end of quarter of $835.8 million and no debt;

  • Tom Albanese, former CEO of Rio Tinto plc, joins the Board; and

  • Dividend reinvestment plan adopted.

"Franco-Nevada's royalty business model has proven robust despite lower gold prices. Cash-flow generation remains very strong and no material impairments have been recognized. Operations are profitable and performing in line with our expectations with no changes to our previous guidance," said David Harquail, President and CEO.  "For the second half of the year, we are looking forward to the ramp-up of production at Detour Lake and Peculiar Knob and the start of production at Duketon-Rosemont.  We are also looking forward to First Quantum's revised plans for the Cobre Panama project now expected in the fourth quarter and the possible permitting of the Augusta-Rosemont project.  We continue to add small gold assets to the portfolio and expect more investments will be closed this year.  I personally would like to welcome Tom Albanese who will add further strength to an already strong Franco-Nevada board."

Financial Results

Gold Equivalent Ounces(1) ("GEOs") earned by Franco-Nevada from its royalty and stream mineral interests for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 were 53,292 and 111,580, respectively, representing decreases of 8.7% and 2.0%, respectively, over the comparable periods in 2012. In addition, the oil & gas assets generated $18.2 million and $32.1 million, respectively, in revenues during the same periods compared to $9.0 million and $19.5 million, respectively, in 2012. Revenue was earned 77% from precious metals (67% gold and 10% PGMs) and 81% from North America and Australia (33% Canada, 21% U.S., 22% Mexico and 5% Australia).

For the second quarter, the Company earned net income of $21.6 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to $36.9 million, or $0.26 per share, in 2012.  Adjusted Net Income(2) was $31.9 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to $35.1 million, or $0.24 per share. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $57.0 million, or $0.39 per share, compared with $83.7 million, or $0.59 per share, in 2012. Adjusted Net Income(2) was $72.5 million, or $0.49 per share, compared with $78.7 million, or $0.55 per share, in 2012.

Revenue was $93.3 million (2012 - $102.7 million) and $202.1 million (2012 - $207.7 million) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013. The decreases were due to lower average gold prices and lower production from Goldstrike, Palmarejo and Bald Mountain, partially offset by higher production from Subika, Gold Quarry and Peculiar Knob and higher oil & gas revenue. Adjusted EBITDA(3) was $75.2 million (2012 - $82.5 million), or $0.51 per share (2012 - $0.57 per share), and $164.3 million (2012 - $167.9 million), or $1.12 per share (2012 - $1.18 per share), for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.

As at June 30, 2013, Franco-Nevada had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $797.0 million and working capital(4) of $835.8 million.  In addition, the Company has available an undrawn $500.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility bringing available capital to over $1.3 billion.

New Royalty Acquisitions

  • Sissingue - Rest of World: On May 29, 2013, Franco-Nevada, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, acquired a 0.5% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on certain tenements that comprise the Sissingue gold project located in Cote d'Ivoire and operated by Perseus Mining Limited. The purchase price was Australian $2.0 million in cash.

  • Brucejack - Canada: On May 13, 2013, the Company closed the previously announced acquisition of a 1.2% NSR covering Pretium Resources Inc.'s Brucejack gold project located in northwestern British Columbia for $45.0 million in cash.

  • Golden Meadows - U.S.: On May 9, 2013, the Company closed the previously announced Golden Meadows transaction whereby a wholly-owned subsidiary of Franco-Nevada acquired a new 1.7% NSR on the Golden Meadows project from Midas Gold Corp. The total consideration was $15.0 million.

Quarterly Portfolio Highlights

  • Gold - U.S.:  Gold revenue was $13.9 million, or 9,946 GEOs, during the quarter, a decrease of $12.9 million, over Q2 2012 revenue of $26.8 million, or 16,600 GEOs, which was attributable to an overall lower average gold price and lower production levels at Goldstrike and Bald Mountain partially offset by higher revenue at Gold Quarry due to an increase in the minimum royalty provision.  Barrick Gold reported lower production at Goldstrike in the quarter due to the processing of lower grade ore at the autoclave facility partially offset by increased process throughput. Barrick expects higher production at Goldstrike in the second half of 2013.

    Augusta Resource Corporation continues to advance permitting of its Rosemont Copper project and has submitted its Environmental Impact Statement to cooperating agencies for final comments.  The Hollister mine was acquired by Waterton Global Mining Company LLC through a receivership process. The mine remained in operation through receivership and continues to be subject to Franco-Nevada's royalty.

  • Gold - Canada: Canadian gold assets generated$7.9 million in revenue and 5,503 GEOs with the largest contributor being the Golden Highway assets with $2.9 million in revenue and 2,087 GEOs. Revenue from the Company's Detour NSR totaled $1.2 million, or 872 GEOs, as ramp-up activities continue with commercial production expected to be achieved in the third quarter of 2013.

    Rubicon Minerals Corporation announced positive results from its preliminary economic assessment and an increase to its indicated mineral resources for part of its Phoenix Gold Project. Franco-Nevada holds a 2% NSR on the water claims of the Phoenix gold project. Pretium Resources Inc. released a positive feasibility study on the Brucejack project. A bulk sample for the Brucejack project is expected in the third quarter.  New Prosperity, on which Franco-Nevada has a stream agreement option, has entered the final stages of public review and final decision regarding permitting is anticipated midway through Q1/2014.

  • Gold - Australia: Gold revenue from Australian assets was $2.4 million in the quarter, or 1,711 GEOs, with the Duketon NSR contributing $2.0 million and 1,461 GEOs. The Duketon project includes the Moolart Well & Garden Well gold mines and the Rosemont Gold Project, operated by Regis Resources Ltd. ("Regis"). Regis announced an increase to the resources at Garden Well and plans for a plant expansion at Rosemont which is expected to commence commissioning in late September 2013. Regis expects the plant expansion to increase long-term gold production from both Garden Well and Rosemont. Franco-Nevada holds a 2% NSR on Duketon.

    Two of Franco-Nevada's smaller Australian assets, Bronzewing and Wiluna, have been negatively impacted by the lower gold price environment with the respective operators entering creditor protection.

  • Gold - Rest of World: Gold assets in the rest of the world generated $38.5 million and 27,388 GEOs during the quarter compared with $42.7 million and 26,466 GEOs in 2012. Growth was achieved from Subika, a royalty that surpassed a production threshold in mid-2012, and Mine Waste Solutions and Tasiast, both due to higher production volumes. Revenue and GEOs were lower from Palmarejo due to lower production and average gold prices.

    Eldorado Gold Corp. announced that it will delay production start of its Perama Hill project by one year to 2016 due to the lower gold price environment.

    First Quantum Minerals Ltd. announced that its detailed review of its Cobre Panama project continued during Q2 2013 and it expects a revised capital cost estimate and project timetable in Q4 2013.

  • PGM Assets: PGM assets earned $9.6 million in revenue, or 6,752 GEOs for the three months with higher production from Stillwater partially offset by lower production from the Sudbury assets.

  • Oil & Gas and Other Assets: Oil & gas assets generated $18.2 million in revenue, an increase of 102.2%, due to the 2012 acquisitions of an additional working interest and net royalty interest in the Weyburn Unit and higher average commodity prices. In addition, Peculiar Knob, an iron-ore royalty in Australia, contributed $1.9 million to revenue in the quarter.

2013 Guidance

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, attributable royalty and stream production was in-line with the Company's expectations.  The Company expects to receive a total of 215,000 to 235,000 GEOs from its mineral assets and $55.0 to $65.0 million in revenue from its oil & gas assets in 2013. Gold equivalent royalty and stream ounces are estimated for gross ounces, and in the case of stream ounces, before the payment of approximately $400 per gold equivalent ounce paid by the Company. Platinum and palladium metals have been converted to GEOs using commodity prices of $1,300/oz Au, $1,425/oz Pt and $750/oz Pd. The WTI oil price is assumed to average $93 per barrel with similar price discounts for Canadian oil as experienced in the first half of 2013.

Board Addition

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 and on SEDAR and on EDGAR.

(1)      For Q2 2013, GEOs for royalties are calculated using commodity prices of $1,414/oz Au (2012 - $1,611/oz Au), $1,465/oz Pt (2012 - $1,500/oz Pt) and $713/oz Pd (2012 - $628/oz Pd).
(2)      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.
(3)      Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income (loss) excluding income tax expense, 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.
(4)      Working capital is defined by the Company as current assets less current liabilities.
