Fourth Quarter 2023 Highlights:

  • Record Q4 revenue of US$4.0 million and record adjusted revenue1 of US$5.6 million, up 101% on Q4 2022
  • Record Q4 attributable GEOs1 of 2,843 ounces, up 75% on Q4 2022

  • Maiden quarterly net profit of US$2.2 million, compared with a US$11.5 million loss in Q4 2022

2024 Outlook

  • Record guidance of 10,000 to 11,700 GEOs, representing at its midpoint a 19% increase on 2023 and top-line exposure to gold and copper prices
  • Significantly lower G&A expenditure following asset sales, which are also expected to generate milestone payments placing the company in a position to generate material cash flow
  • Repaid US$5 million debt in Q1 2024, leaving a strong balance sheet for royalty acquisitions with US$25 million undrawn on the credit facility and approximately US$10 million of cash as of April 16, 2024

Frederick Bell, CEO of Elemental Altus, commented:

"With the gold price hitting all-time highs and copper appreciating strongly, our cash-flowing royalty portfolio continues to provide investors with top-line exposure to commodity prices today. Our portfolio is leveraged approximately 70% to gold and 30% to copper where our 2024 guidance used prices of US$2,000 an ounce of gold and US$3.90 per pound of copper.

While the team continues to focus on NAV accretive deals with multiple opportunities being progressed, we are also able to improve the strength of the balance sheet and enhance the company's ability to execute on high priority transactions. As part of this strategy, we have realised US$3.5 million in cash through sales of non-core equity holdings and subsequently paid down US$5 million of debt reducing interest payments while still maintaining a strong cash balance.

With the recently announced 2024 guidance expected to result in a seventh consecutive year of revenue growth, Elemental Altus continues to deliver on key strategic milestones and we look forward to updating the market on continued progress in the near future."

Notes

1. Non-IFRS Measures

The Company has included certain performance measures which are non-IFRS and are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These non-IFRS measures do not have any standard meaning under IFRS and other companies may calculate measures differently.

Royalty revenue is received at zero cost. Distributions from associates related to Elemental Altus' effective royalty on Caserones are received net of Chilean taxes and have no other costs.

Adjusted Revenue

Adjusted revenue is a non-IFRS financial measure, which is defined as including gross royalty revenue from associated entities holding royalty interests related to Elemental Altus' effective royalty on the Caserones copper mine. Management uses adjusted revenue to evaluate the underlying operating performance of the Company for the reporting periods presented, to assist with the planning and forecasting of future operating results, and to supplement information in its financial statements. Management believes that in addition to measures prepared in accordance with IFRS such as revenue, investors may use adjusted revenue to evaluate the results of the underlying business, particularly as the adjusted revenue may not typically be included in operating results. Management believes that adjusted revenue is a useful measure of the Company performance because it adjusts for items which management believes reflect the Company's core operating results from period to period. Adjusted revenue is intended to provide additional information to investors and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. It does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Gold Equivalent Ounces

Elemental Altus' adjusted royalty, streaming, and other revenue is converted to an attributable gold equivalent ounce, or GEO, basis by dividing the royalty and other revenue from associates in a period by the average gold price for the same respective period, plus the net gold ounces received in the period from streaming investments. The presentation of this non-IFRS measure is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate these non-IFRS measures differently. The production forecast was derived using information that is available in the public domain as at the date hereof, which included guidance and estimates prepared and issued by management of the operators of the mining operations in which Elemental Altus holds an interest. The production forecast is sensitive to the performance and operating status of the underlying mines. None of the information has been independently verified by Elemental Altus and may be subject to uncertainty. There can be no assurance that such information is complete or accurate.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA excludes the effects of certain other income/expenses and unusual non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA is comprised of earnings before interest, taxes, depletion, including depletion and taxes relating to share of profit from associate, and share-based compensation. Management believes that this is a useful measure of the Company's performance because it adjusts for items which may not relate to underlying operating performance of the Company and/or are not necessarily indicative of future operating results.

Neither the TSX-V nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX-V.) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this press release.
