Franco-Nevada is the leading gold-focused royalty and streaming company globally with the largest and most diversified portfolio of royalties and streams by commodity, geography, revenue type and stage of project.

Franco-Nevada’s shares are listed on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol FNV. An investment in Franco-Nevada’s shares is expected to provide investors with yield and exposure to commodity price and exploration optionality while limiting exposure to cost inflation and other operating risks.

Our aspiration is to make Franco-Nevada the “go to” gold stock for the generalist investor. We believe that our emphasis on minimizing risk, paying dividends and maintaining a strong balance sheet along with high environmental, social and governance standards is attractive to generalist investors.

  1. Starting in Q4 2021, revenue from Franco-Nevada’s Energy assets are included in the calculation of Gold Equivalent Ounces (“GEOs”). GEOs for comparative periods have been recalculated to conform with the current presentation. GEOs include Franco-Nevada’s attributable share of production from our Mining and Energy assets, after applicable recovery and payability factors. GEOs are estimated on a gross basis for NSR royalties and, in the case of stream ounces, before the payment of the per ounce contractual price paid by the Company. For NPI royalties, GEOs are calculated taking into account the NPI economics. Silver, platinum, palladium, iron ore, oil, gas and other commodities are converted to GEOs by dividing associated revenue, which includes settlement adjustments, by the relevant gold price. The price used in the computation of GEOs earned from a particular asset varies depending on the royalty or stream agreement, which may make reference to the market price realized by the operator, or the average price for the month, quarter, or year in which the commodity was produced or sold.

Environment, Social and Governance

Our commitment to ESG starts with our Board and carries through our organization and all aspects of our business. We are committed to diversity and inclusion and have a diversity goal of 40% diverse representation at the Board and top leadership levels by 2025. We are committed to responsible mining and energy extraction. We recognize our role as a capital allocator. ESG is a critical factor when we make investment decisions. Climate change is a significant risk to society and we recognize the need to reduce carbon intensive activities. As part of our ESG due diligence for our capital allocation decisions, we consider climate-related risks and the carbon footprint of the operation. We have played an active role through the World Gold Council developing the Responsible Gold Mining Principles and proactively engage with operators regarding adopting these or similar standards for responsible mining when negotiating our investments. We are committed to contributing to our communities, both through personal philanthropy and by actively engaging with our operators to make contributions in the communities in which our royalty and stream assets are located.
