Vox Royalty Announces Record Revenue in Q1 2021
GEORGE TOWN, May 4, 2021 - Vox Royalty Corp. (TSXV: VOX) ("Vox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has realized record preliminary revenue of C$668,600 (US$540,000)(1) for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021. All preliminary revenues were derived from royalties, not streams, as such, the cash operating margin(1) was 100% for the quarter. During the quarter, the Company recognized inaugural royalty revenue from the Koolyanobbing royalty, which is an uncapped 2% Free on Board sales value royalty from iron ore mined from the recently commissioned Altair Pit and a portion of the Deception Pit.
Quarterly revenue benefitted from increased royalty-linked production by Mineral Resources Ltd. (ASX: MIN) and record iron ore prices at Koolyanobbing, increased production by Karora Resources Inc. (TSX: KRR) from the Hidden Secret deposit at Higginsville covered by the Dry Creek royalty and rebounding quarterly diamond prices associated with the Brauna royalty.
Kyle Floyd, Chief Executive Officer stated: "Record quarterly revenue for Q1 represents the start of Vox's anticipated revenue growth through 2023 as numerous royalty assets are expected to commence production. The Company's preliminary quarterly revenue is in line with previously announced 2021 full-year revenue guidance of C$1.7M to C$2.5M. Vox's organic revenue growth is a product of the Company's stated strategy of acquiring high quality, attractively priced royalties many of which are near term production opportunities. Vox held one producing royalty in May 2020 and anticipates finishing 2021 with seven producing assets based on its current portfolio of 50 royalties."
Vox is a growth precious metals royalty and streaming company with a portfolio of 50 royalties and streams spanning nine jurisdictions. The Company was established in 2014 and has since built unique intellectual property, a technically focused transactional team and a global sourcing network which has allowed Vox to become the fastest growing company in the royalty sector. Since the beginning of 2019, Vox has announced over 20 separate transactions to acquire over 45 royalties.
