Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (the “Corporation” or “Osisko” – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/osisko-gold-royalties-ltd/) (OR: TSX & NYSE) today announced its consolidated financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

Deconsolidation of Osisko Development Corp. (“Osisko Development”) as of September 30, 2022 and presentation of its results as discontinued operations on the statements of loss and the statements of cash flows;

23,850 GEOs1 earned (Q3 2021 – 20,032 GEOs);

Revenues of $53.7 million (Q3 2021 – $50.0 million);        

Cash flows generated by operating activities from continuing operations of $51.1 million (Q3 2021 – $44.1 million);

Cash margin2 of $49.3 million or 92% (Q3 2021 – 93%);

Sandeep Singh, President and CEO of Osisko commented: “The business case for Osisko has never been stronger. As outlined in our Q3 preliminary deliveries release, we experienced another quarter of record deliveries, revenues and cash margin as we continue to anticipate further increases from our core assets. We are also seeing an increasingly receptive market for royalty and streaming transactions and are well positioned having kept a strong balance sheet for this part of the cycle. We will, however, remain disciplined in capital allocation, finding the right balance between growth and returning capital to investors. The deconsolidation of Osisko Development is a further meaningful step in the strategic realignment of Osisko as a pure-play royalty and streaming business.”
