14.11.2023  |  CNW

VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2023 - Gold Royalty Corp. ("Gold Royalty" or the "Company") (NYSE American: GROY) is pleased to announce the filing of its operating and financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2023. The Company will be hosting an Investor Webcast to discuss these results on Wednesday, November 15 at 11:00 AM ET. All amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.

David Garofalo, Chairman and CEO of Gold Royalty, commented: "I am very encouraged by our team's progress in Q3 2023, having achieved a 48% increase in quarterly Total Revenue and Land Agreement Proceeds* in addition to a 50% decrease in quarterly Cash Operating Expenses* year over year. Our business is currently on track to deliver on our 2023 guidance and poised to break into positive free cash flow in 2024. The recently announced acquisitions of the Cozamin royalty and the SOQUEM royalty portfolio supplement what we believe is one of the strongest organic growth pipelines in the sector. Odyssey, Côté and REN have had positive advancements during the quarter with initial production from Côté expected by its operator in early 2024."

Highlights for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, include:

  • Continued decrease in Cash Operating Expenses* for the quarter as a result of the Company's efforts to reduce costs. Cash Operating Expenses* in the quarter decreased by 50% to $1.6 million from $3.3 million in the comparative period. For the same period total expenses decreased to $2.2 million from $3.7 million.
  • Total Revenue and Land Agreement Proceeds* for the quarter increased by 48% to $1.4 million, from $0.9 million in the comparative period. Revenue, under IFRS, was essentially unchanged at $0.8 million in the current quarter. Full year Total Revenue and Land Agreement Proceeds* guidance of $5.5 million to $6.5 million is maintained.
  • Adjusted Net Loss Per Share* for the third quarter of 2023 improved to $0.01 per share from $0.03 per share in the comparative period. For the same period net loss per share improved to $0.01 per share from $0.03 per share.
  • Cash used in operating activities before movements in working capital improved by 67% to $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2023 from $2.7 million in the comparative period due to higher Total Revenue and Land Agreement Proceeds* and lower Cash Operating Expenses*.
  • On August 30, 2023, the Company completed an acquisition of a 1.0% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on portions of the producing Cozamin copper-silver mine in Mexico ("Cozamin") operated by Capstone Copper Corp. ("Capstone") for a cash consideration of $7.5 million from Endeavour Silver Corp. and its subsidiary.

Outlook

Management currently believes the Company is on track to meet its previously disclosed forecast of $5.5 million and $6.5 million in Total Revenue and Land Agreement Proceeds in 2023 based on the production guidance published to date by the operators of the properties underlying the Company's interests, a forecasted gold price ranging from $1,700 to $2,000 per ounce and expected payments from land agreements. The Company expects to incur $7.0 to $8.0 million in recurring Cash Operating Expenses in 2023 (forecasted cash operating expenses, excluding transaction-related and other non-recurring expenses) which remains unchanged as well. The Company currently expects that it will generate positive net operating cash flow in 2024 (forecasted operating cash flow before movement in non-cash working capital adjusted for land agreement proceed credited against mineral properties) when select key growth projects are expected to ramp up in production, including the long-life cornerstone mines at Côté and Odyssey.

The foregoing projected outlook constitutes ''forward-looking information" and "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable Canadian and U.S. securities laws and is intended to provide information about management's current expectations for the Company's 2023 fiscal year. Although considered reasonable as of the date hereof, such outlook and the underlying assumptions may prove to be inaccurate. Accordingly, actual results could differ materially from the Company's expectations as set forth herein.

In preparing the above outlook, management assumed, among other things, that the operators of the projects underlying the Company's royalties will meet expected production milestones and forecasts for the applicable period and that operators of land agreements will elect to make all expected payments over the period. See "Forward-Looking Statements".

  • Odyssey Project (3.0% NSR over the northern portion of the project): On October 25, 2023, Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. ("Agnico Eagle") issued a news release reporting strong quarterly gold production and provided an update on the Odyssey Project.

  • Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share

Adjusted Net Loss is calculated by adding land agreement proceeds credited against mineral properties, adding the pre-acquisition royalty revenue credited against the Cozamin purchase price and deducting the following from net income: Transaction related and non-recurring general administrative expenses[1], share of (income)/loss and dilution income in associate, impairment, changes in fair value of derivative liabilities and short-term investments, loss on loan modification, foreign exchange gain/(loss), other income/(expense) and land agreement proceeds credited against mineral properties. Adjusted Net Loss Per Share, basic and diluted have been determined by dividing the Adjusted Net Loss by the weighted average number of common shares for the applicable period. The Company included this information as management believes that they are useful measures of performance as they adjust for items which are not always reflective of the underlying operating performance of our business and/or are not necessarily indicative of future operating results.
