SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT
Forward-Looking Statements: This presentation includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of U.S. federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are any statements other than statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results may differ materially from these statements. Forward-looking statements are often identified by words like “will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “forecast,” “potential,” “intend,” “continue,” “project,” or negatives of these words or similar expressions. Forward-looking statements include, among others, the following: statements about operators’ expected operating and financial performance, including production, deliveries, mine plans, reserves and resources, development and expansion plans, timing of feasibility studies and records of decisions, mine life, cash flows, capital expenditures and growth potential; our business model and focus on shareholder returns; the exposure we provide to resource growth and metal price optionality with reduced risks; our providing higher leverage to gold, predictable and sustainable cash flows, reduced exposure to inflation, organic revenue growth from producing and development assets, and enhanced returns; stability of our costs; our commitment to a growing dividend and supporting ESG practices; our financing, capital allocation and acquisition strategies; the benefits of recent acquisitions; the timing of future royalty payments; gold as a hedge against risk, currency depreciation and inflation; tailoring our investments to the needs of the operating partner; alignment of executive compensation with the factors that drive and measure total shareholder return; and the usefulness of non-GAAP financial measures.
Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates and assumptions that involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. The risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward looking statements include, without limitation: a lower-price environment for gold, silver, copper, nickel or other metals; operating activities or financial performance of properties on which we hold stream or royalty interests, including variations between actual and forecasted performance, operators’ ability to complete projects on schedule and as planned, changes to mine plans and reserves, liquidity needs, mining and environmental hazards, labor disputes, distribution and supply chain disruptions, permitting and licensing issues, contractual issues involving our stream or royalty agreements, or operational disruptions; risks associated with doing business in foreign countries; increased competition for stream and royalty interests; availability of other forms of financing for operating parties; adverse economic and market conditions; changes in laws or regulations governing us, operators or operating properties; inflation; changes in interest rates; changes in management and key employees; inability to access sufficient experienced and trained personnel; environmental risks, including those caused by climate change; potential cyber-attacks, including ransomware; our ability to identify, finance, value and complete acquisitions; the risk of litigation related to an acquisition; the diversion of management time from ongoing business operations due to acquisition-related issues; public health crises, such as pandemics and epidemics, and any related government policies and actions; and other risks described in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Form 10 K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (“2022 Form 10-K”), available on our website at royalgold.com and on the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) at http://www.sec.gov. Other unpredictable or unknown factors not discussed in this presentation could also have material adverse effects on forward looking statements. Most of these factors are beyond our ability to predict or control. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made. We disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
Third-party Information: The disclosures herein relating to properties and operations on the properties in which we hold stream or royalty interests are based primarily on information publicly disclosed by the operators of these properties and information available in the public domain as at the date hereof. We do not independently prepare or verify this information and, as the holder of the stream or royalty interest, we do not have access to the properties or operations or to sufficient data to do so. Additionally, we may from time to time receive information from the operators of the properties that is not publicly disclosed by the operators and that we are not permitted ourselves to disclose to the public. We are dependent on the operators of the properties to provide information to us. There can be no assurance that such third-party information is complete or accurate.
Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources: Our stream or royalty interests often cover only a portion of the publicly reported mineral reserves, mineral resources, and production of a property or operation and information publicly reported by operators may relate to a larger property or operation than the area covered by our stream or royalty interest. There are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimates of mineral reserves, mineral resources and production, many of which are outside the operators’ control. As a result, estimates of mineral reserves, mineral resources, and production are subjective and necessarily depend upon a number of assumptions, including, among others, reliability of historical data, geologic and mining conditions, metallurgical recovery, metal prices, operating costs, capital expenditures, development and reclamation costs, mining technology improvements, and the effects of government regulation. Mineral resources are subject to future exploration and development and associated risks and may never convert to mineral reserves. If any of the assumptions that operators make in connection with estimates of mineral reserves, mineral resources, or production are incorrect, actual production could be significantly lower than estimated, which could adversely affect our future revenue and the value of our investments. In addition, if operators’ estimates with respect to the timing of production are incorrect, we may experience variances in expected revenue from period to period. See our 2022 Form 10-K (available on our website at royalgold.com and on the website of the SEC) for more information about estimates of the mineral resources and mineral reserves on the properties that generate our stream and royalty interests.
References to Years: All references in this presentation to years are to the twelve months ended or ending December 31 of the referenced year, unless otherwise noted.
Information Regarding Khoemacau: Information in this presentation concerning the Khoemacau Copper Project was provided to us by Cupric Canyon Capital L.P., the privately held owner and developer of Khoemacau. Such information may not have been prepared in accordance with applicable laws, stock exchange rules or international standards governing preparation and public disclosure of technical data and information relating to mineral properties. We have not verified, and are not in a position to verify, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or fairness of this third-party information, and investors are cautioned not to rely upon this information.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures: We refer to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Net Debt, Cash G&A and other Non-GAAP financial measures that our management believes are a useful tool to assess our operating results. For a definition of these terms and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, see “Non-GAAP Measures” at the end of this slide presentation.
