(Franco-Nevada, 8.Nov.2023) — Franco-Nevada announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of US$0.34 per share. The dividend will be paid on 21 Dec. 2023, to shareholders of record on 7 Dec. 2023 (the “Record Date”).
The dividend has been declared in U.S. dollars and the Canadian dollar equivalent will be determined based on the daily average rate posted by the Bank of Canada on the Record Date. Under Canadian tax legislation, Canadian resident individuals who receive “eligible dividends” are entitled to an enhanced gross-up and dividend tax credit on such dividends.
The company has a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”) which allows shareholders of Franco-Nevada to reinvest dividends to purchase additional common shares at the Average Market Price, as defined in the DRIP, subject to a discount from the Average Market Price in the case of treasury acquisitions. Pursuant to the terms of the DRIP, the company has changed the discount applicable to the Average Market Price from 3% to 1%, effective from the dividend payable on 30 Mar. 2023. The company may, from time to time, in its discretion, further change or eliminate the discount applicable to treasury acquisitions or direct that such common shares be purchased in market acquisitions at the prevailing market price, any of which would be publicly announced. Participation in the DRIP is optional. The DRIP and enrollment forms are available on the company’s website at www.franco-nevada.com. Canadian and U.S. registered shareholders may also enroll in the DRIP online through the plan agent’s self-service web portal at www.investorcentre.com/franco-nevada. Canadian and U.S. beneficial shareholders should contact their financial intermediary to arrange enrollment. Non-Canadian and non-U.S. shareholders may potentially participate in the DRIP, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. Non-Canadian and non-U.S. shareholders should contact the company to determine whether they satisfy the necessary conditions to participate in the DRIP.
