Elemental Altus Royalties Announces Record First Quarter Revenue

21.05.2024 | 13:00 Uhr | Newsfile

Vancouver, May 21, 2024 - Elemental Altus Royalties Corp. (TSXV: ELE) (OTCQX: ELEMF) ("Elemental Altus" or the "Company") announces its operating and financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

For complete details, please refer to the Financial Statements and associated Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended March 31, 2024, available on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca) and the Company's website (www.elementalaltus.com). All amounts are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Highlights

  • Royalty revenue of US$3.3 million and adjusted revenue1 of US$4.7 million, up 24% on Q1 2023
  • Attributable Gold Equivalent Ounces1 ("GEOs") of 2,283 ounces, up 13% on Q1 2023
  • Operating Cash Flow plus Caserones dividends of US$1.2 million, compared with a loss in Q1 2023 and expected to grow through 2024 as margins increase
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of US$3.2 million, up 42% on Q1 2023

2024 Outlook

  • Diba remains on track to be the Company's newest producing gold royalty. Allied Gold Corp (TSX: AAUC) ("Allied") have announced that mining is expected to commence in Q2 2024
  • Elemental Altus on course to meet guidance of 10,000 to 11,700 GEOs as production increases over the year. This guidance represents at its midpoint a 19% increase on 2023 and provides top-line exposure to gold and copper prices
  • Repaid US$5 million debt in Q1 2024, leaving US$25 million undrawn on the credit facility and with approximately US$9 million cash on quarter end prior to Q1 royalty receipts. The Company intends to continue to reduce the amount drawn on the credit facility while maintaining financial flexibility to make new acquisitions
  • Falling G&A expenditure and significant expected cash flow generation following merger synergies and asset sales, which are also expected to generate milestone payments placing the company in a position to generate material cash flow

Frederick Bell, CEO of Elemental Altus, commented:

"With increasing revenue and expanding margins over the course of 2024, we expect to generate significant free cash flow to invest into new opportunities. The Diba royalty is on track to commence mining in Q2 and has the potential to be a material long-life royalty for the company based on the exploration potential once it is in production. We also added optionality at the other end of the spectrum post quarter with a royalty over a Rio Tinto operated lithium project in Rwanda, where we expect to see significant news flow over the course of 2024 and which will complement our existing gold exposure in Egypt with In2Metals who are actively exploring the licence package.

Elemental Altus, through its peer leading revenue-generating portfolio, continues to provide some of the best exposure to commodity prices, specifically gold and copper, both of which have performed significantly above the Company's 2024 guidance assumptions of US$2,000/oz gold and US$3.90/lb copper year to date. The start of Q2 2024 has seen both commodities hit near all-time highs which is expected to drive financial outperformance over the coming year."

Q1 2024 Financial Highlights

The following table sets forth selected financial information for the three months ended March 31, 2024. Royalty revenues are at zero cash cost.

Asset Update

Diba

Allied have announced that mining is on track to commence at Diba in Q2 2024 following construction of a haul road and declaration of a maiden Mineral Reserve of 280,000 ounces at a grade of 1.43g/t Au. The Company has an initial 3% NSR royalty at Diba that reduces to 2% after a production hurdle.

Alongside rapid progress in bringing the deposit to development, Allied's ability to expand the resource in parallel demonstrates the potential upside of the Company's royalty, which sits along strike from a Tier 1 deposit in Sadiola and has significant exploration potential.

Bonikro

Royalty attributable sales in Q1 2024 were 21,407 ounces, a significant increase from 4,471 ounces in Q1 2023 due to the majority of production being sourced from the royalty area. Allied has indicated that Bonikro production will be weighted towards the second half of the year, further improving the near-term outlook.

Laverton

Focus Minerals ("Focus") (ASX: FML) have announced increases in Resources at a number of higher grade open pit deposits at the Laverton Gold Project, including some of those covered by Elemental Altus's royalty. Focus plans to update their 2021 Stage 1 Prefeasibility Study for open pit production, reflecting increased Resources and improved gold pricing.

Corporate Update

Debt Repayment

On March 21, 2024, the Company made a repayment of $5 million of its credit facility, reducing the borrowing balance for the Company to $25 million and the unutilized amount of the credit facility to $15 million, plus another US$10 million available under certain conditions.

Share Sales

On 27 February 2024, the Company sold its initial Firefly Metals Ltd shares that it has received as part of the Ming gold stream disposal for US$2.3 million.

On March 27, 2024, the Company sold its entire shareholding interest in Canyon Resources Limited for US$1.2 million. The company received the cash payment post period end on April 4, 2024.

Royalty Acquisitions

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company also acquired a 1.25% - 1.40% NSR royalty on the HCK Lithium Project in the Republic of Rwanda, with Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Limited having the licence to operate. The royalty serves as repayment for the Company's US$0.2 million receivable balance from Aterian Plc.

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 and cash flow from operating activities

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.

Adjusted depletion, adjusted tax expense and adjusted cash flow from operating activities are non-IFRS measures which include depletion, tax and dividends from the Caserones royalty asset in line with the recognition of adjusted revenue as described above.

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.

On behalf of Elemental Altus Royalties Corp.

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.
