The company's revenue was down 13 per cent year-to-year, falling to $161.3-million from $185.2-million – mostly as a result of lower prices for silver.

Silver Wheaton's expenses also went up, with the average cash cost rising four cents an ounce to $4.16.

The company declared a dividend of seven cents per share – about 20 per cent of the cash generated by operations during the quarter.
