“I am pleased that Franco-Nevada’s 10th full year since its IPO was its best year ever,” CEO David Harquail said.

He said the debt-free company was “well-positioned for another 10 years of success,” outlining expected growth through the ramp-up of First Quantum Minerals’ Cobre Panama project, Kinross Gold’s Tasiast expansions in Mauritania, smaller mine start-ups in 2018-19, the 50% expansion of Stillwater’s Blitz PGM project and the full-field development of its US oil and gas royalties tracking ahead of original expectations. 

Franco-Nevada’s oil and gas revenues rose 34.6% in the fourth quarter, reflecting higher prices and production levels, but precious metals still represented the bulk of revenue at 89.2%.

For 2018, the company expects attributable royalty and stream production to total 460,000-490,000oz AuEq and oil and gas assets to generate $50-$60 million.

Franco-Nevada’s five-year outlook, assuming no further acquisitions and Cobre Panama being fully ramped up by 2022, anticipates 565,000-595,000oz AuEq by 2022 and oil and gas revenue increasing to $80-$90 million.

Shares in the company have ranged between C$81.01-$110.19 over the past year and are down more than 9% year-to-date after closing almost 1% lower yesterday to $91.12.
