Preliminary cost of sales, excluding depletion2 for the three month period was $5.3 million resulting in cash operating margins1 of approximately $1,590 per attributable gold equivalent ounce1 ($4.1 million and $1,569 per attributable gold equivalent ounce for the comparable period in 2021, respectively).
Sandstorm Gold Royalties has included certain performance measures in this press release that do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) including (i) attributable gold equivalent ounces and (ii) cash operating margin. 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. Other companies may calculate these non-IFRS measures differently. Note these figures have not been audited and are subject to change. (i) As the Company’s operations are primarily focused on precious metals, the Company presents attributable gold equivalent ounces as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other mining companies in the precious metals mining industry who present results on a similar basis. Attributable Gold Equivalent ounces is a non-IFRS financial ratio that uses Total Sales, Royalties, and Income from Other Interests as a component. Total Sales, Royalties and Income from Other Interests is a non-IFRS financial measure and is calculated by taking total revenue which includes Sales and Royalty Revenue, and adding contractual income relating to royalties, streams and other interests excluding gains and losses on dispositions. Attributable Gold Equivalent ounces is calculated by dividing the Company’s Total Sales, Royalties, and Income from other interests for the period by the average realized gold price per ounce from the Company’s Gold streams for the same respective period ($36.0 million/$1,866 average realized gold price for the current period and $32.3 million/$1,796 average realized gold price for the prior period) and may be subject to change. (ii) The Company presents cash operating margin as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other companies in the precious metals mining industry who present results on a similar basis. Cash operating margin is a non-IFRS financial ratio that uses Total Sales, Royalties, and Income from Other Interests and Attributable Gold Equivalent ounces as components (described further in item i above). Cash operating margin is calculated by subtracting cost of sales, excluding depletion from Total Sales, Royalties, and Income from other interests and dividing this figure by attributable gold equivalent ounces sold ([$36.0 million – $5.3 million]/19,200 attributable gold equivalent ounces for the current period and [$32.3 million – $4.1 million]/18,004 attributable gold equivalent ounces for the prior period).
