MONTRÉAL, May 08, 2024 -- Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. (the "Company" or "Osisko") (OR: TSX & NYSE) today announced its consolidated financial results for the first quarter of 2024. Amounts presented are in Canadian dollars, except where otherwise noted.

  • Revenues from royalties and streams of $60.8 million ($59.6 million in Q1 2023);
  • Cash flows generated by operating activities of $50.4 million ($45.5 million in Q1 2023);
  • Cost of sales of $1.8 million, resulting in a quarterly cash margin2 of 97% ($58.9 million);
  • Net earnings of $15.1 million, $0.08 per basic share ($20.8 million, $0.11 per basic share in Q1 2023);
  • Adjusted earnings2 of $29.7 million, $0.16 per basic share ($25.2 million, $0.14 per basic share in Q1 2023);
  • Repayment of $43.6 million under the revolving credit facility;
  • Cash balance of $70.6 million and debt position of $151.9 million as at March 31, 2024; and
  • Appointment of Mr. David Smith to the Board of Directors.

Subsequent to March 31, 2024

  • Additional repayments of $18.6 million on the revolving credit facility and extension of the maturity date from September 29, 2026 to April 30, 2028;
  • Publication of the fourth edition of the Company's sustainability report, Growing Responsibly and Osisko's 2024 Asset Handbook; and
  • Declaration of a quarterly dividend of $0.065 per common share payable on July 15, 2024 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on June 28, 2024, an increase of 8%.

Jason Attew, President & CEO of Osisko commented: "Osisko is off to a great start in 2024 after a solid first quarter. Strong revenues and cash flows have allowed Osisko to continue to rapidly pay down the Company's revolving credit facility. Consequently, Osisko's balance sheet remains well-positioned for the future deployment of capital towards accretive growth opportunities. In addition, the consistency and predictability of our cash flows underpinned our confidence to raise the base dividend by 8% as we embark on a phase of substantial and meaningful growth over the course of the next few years.

Catalysts continued to crystallize for Osisko during the first three months of the year, most notably South32's final investment decision at Hermosa and Alamos Gold's proposed acquisition of the Magino mine and mill, located directly adjacent to the Island Gold mine. Recently, and subsequent to quarter-end, Metals Acquisition released an updated Reserves and Resources statement for CSA which saw the mine life increased from 6 to 11 years based on Reserves only.

The Company remains on track to meet its 2024 GEO delivery guidance range. The Company also expects stronger GEO deliveries into the second half of 2024, including first GEO deliveries from the CSA Copper Stream starting on June 15th, and then also from G Mining Ventures' Tocantinzinho and Cardinal Namdini's Namdini mines relatively soon after that."

(1) Gold Equivalent Ounces

GEOs are calculated on a quarterly basis and include royalties and streams. Silver earned from royalty and stream agreements are converted to gold equivalent ounces by multiplying the silver ounces earned by the average silver price for the period and dividing by the average gold price for the period. Diamonds, other metals and cash royalties are converted into gold equivalent ounces by dividing the associated revenue earned by the average gold price for the period.

(2) Non-IFRS Measures

The Corporation has included certain performance measures in this press release that do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS Accounting Standards including (i) cash margin (in dollars and in percentage of revenues), (ii) adjusted earnings and (iii) adjusted earnings per basic share. The presentation of these non-IFRS measures 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 Accounting Standards. These measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS Accounting Standards. As Osisko's operations are primarily focused on precious metals, the Corporation presents cash margins and adjusted earnings as it believes that certain investors use this information, together with measures determined in accordance with IFRS Accounting Standards, to evaluate the Corporation's performance in comparison to other companies in the precious metals mining industry who present results on a similar basis. However, other companies may calculate these non-IFRS measures differently.

Cash Margin (in dollars and in percentage of revenues)

Cash margin (in dollars) represents revenues less cost of sales (excluding depletion). Cash margin (in percentage of revenues) represents the cash margin (in dollars) divided by revenues.
