LABRADOR IRON ORE ROYALTY CORPORATION - RESULTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2023

TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2023 /CNW/ - Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation ("LIORC") (TSX: LIF) announced today its operation and cash flow results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

To the Holders of Common Shares of Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation 

The Directors of Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation ("LIORC" or the "Corporation") present the third quarter report for the period ended September 30, 2023.

Financial Performance

In the third quarter of 2023, LIORC's financial results were negatively affected by lower pellet prices and lower sales volumes of pellets and concentrate for sale ("CFS"). Royalty revenue for the third quarter of 2023 amounted to $47.0 million compared to $63.5 million for the third quarter of 2022. Equity earnings from Iron Ore Company of Canada ("IOC") were $23.1 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to $46.8 million in the third quarter of 2022, as a result of lower revenue and higher unit operating costs at IOC. Net income per share for the third quarter of 2023 was $0.77 per share, which was a 38% decrease over the same period in 2022. LIORC received a dividend from IOC in the amount of $30.6 million in the third quarter of 2023, compared to a dividend from IOC in the amount of $34.2 million in the third quarter of 2022. The adjusted cash flow per share for the third quarter of 2023 was $0.89 per share, which was 18% lower than in the same period in 2022, as a result of lower royalty revenues. While adjusted cash flow is not a recognized measure under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), the Directors believe that it is a useful analytical measure as it better reflects cash available for dividends to shareholders.

In the third quarter of 2023, iron ore prices for concentrate and fines were generally consistent with the prior quarter and higher than the levels experienced in the third quarter of 2022, predominantly as a result of marginally higher global steel production and increasing expectations that government stimulus will lessen concerns over China's economy and its property sector. According to The World Steel Association, global crude steel production increased 2.4% in the third quarter of 2023 over the third quarter of 2022. In China, which accounts for over 70% of all seaborne iron ore demand, crude steel production increased 2.9% in the third quarter of 2023 over the third quarter of 2022. Overall, in the first nine months of 2023 global crude steel production has been flat compared to the first nine months of 2022. Conversely, pellet prices, while consistent with the prior quarter were substantially lower than the levels experienced in the second quarter of 2022, as global economic pressures on European steel producers continued to negatively impact the demand for iron ore pellets.

IOC sells CFS based on the Platts index for 65% Fe, CFR China ("65% Fe index"). All references to tonnes and per tonne prices in this report refer to wet metric tonnes, other than references to Platts quoted pricing, which refer to dry metric tonnes. Historically, IOC's wet ore contains approximately 3% less ore per equivalent volume than dry ore. In the third quarter of 2023, the 65% Fe index averaged US$125 per tonne, an 8% increase over the average of US$115 per tonne in the third quarter of 2022, and a 1% increase over the average of US$124 in the second quarter of 2023. However, low steel production margins in China caused steel mills to continue to prefer medium-grade fines over high-grade fines. As a result, the spread of the 65% Fe index over the Platts index for 62% Fe, CFR China ("62% Fe index") narrowed further in the third quarter of 2023 to $11 per tonne from $12 per tonne in the third quarter of 2022.  The monthly Atlantic Blast Furnace 65% Fe pellet premium index as quoted by Platts (the "pellet premium") averaged US$49 per tonne in the third quarter of 2023, down 39% from an average of US$80 per tonne in the same quarter of 2022.

Based on sales as reported for the LIORC Royalty, the overall average price realized by IOC for CFS and pellets, FOB Sept-Îles, was approximately US$127 per tonne in the third quarter of 2023, compared to approximately US$146 per tonne in the third quarter of 2022 and US$125 per tonne in the second quarter of 2023. The decrease in the average realized price FOB Sept-Îles in 2023 was a result of lower pellet prices and to a lesser extent a change in product mix, as pellets represented 46% of sales in the third quarter of 2023, compared to 52% of sales in the same quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2023.

Iron Ore Company of Canada Operations

Operations

IOC concentrate production of 4.3 million tonnes in the third quarter of 2023 was 13% lower than the same quarter of 2022, mainly due to (i) an unexpected equipment failure with the thickener rake drive which is used in the dewatering process in the concentrator, and (ii) conveyor belt failures on the overland delivery system between the mine and the concentrator. Concentrate production in the quarter was 11% higher than in the second quarter of 2023, as the second quarter was negatively impacted by the forest fires affecting the rail line.

The IOC saleable production (CFS plus pellets) of 4.1 million tonnes in the third quarter of 2023 was 14% lower than the same period in 2022, as operations were impacted by extended plant downtime resulting from the equipment and conveyor belt failures, referred to above. The IOC saleable production in the third quarter of 2023 was 16% higher than the second quarter of 2023, as a result of the wildfires in the second quarter.

Pellet production in the third quarter of 2023 of 2.1 million tonnes was 19% lower than the corresponding quarter in 2022 and 32% higher than the second quarter of 2023.  Pellet production in the third quarter of 2023 was negatively impacted by an increase in the machine 3 rebuild duration and plant reliability issues. In the third quarter of 2023, CFS production of 1.9 million tonnes was 8% lower than the same quarter last year and consistent with the second quarter of 2023, due to the reduction of concentrate production for the reasons referred to above.

Sales as Reported for the LIORC Royalty

Total iron ore sales tonnage by IOC (CFS plus pellets) of 3.9 million tonnes in the third quarter of 2023 was 14% lower than the total sales tonnage for the same period in 2022 and 11% lower than the second quarter of 2023, mainly due to inventory availability and shipment timing. Pellet sales tonnage in the third quarter of 2023 was 22% lower than the same period in 2022 and 21% lower than the second quarter of 2023. CFS sales tonnage was 5% lower than the same quarter last year and consistent with the second quarter of 2023.

Outlook

Given the third quarter production performance, Rio Tinto's full year 2023 guidance for IOC's saleable production (CFS plus pellets) has been lowered to 15.8 million to 16.7 million tonnes (previous guidance was 17.0 million to 18.7 million tonnes). This revised guidance compares to 17.6 million tonnes of saleable production in 2022, and 16.6 million tonnes of saleable production in 2021.

Inflation and the resulting monetary tightening around the world have slowed global investment and consumption. This in turn has put pressure on steel demand and production.  Additionally, China's property sector, and the potential effects from the financial difficulties that major real estate developers are experiencing, continues to create significant concerns for China's economy. That being said, The World Steel Association is forecasting that China's property market will stabilise in the latter part of the year and that China's steel demand will record slight positive growth thanks to government measures.  Globally, it is forecasting that steel demand will grow by 1.8% in 2023 and 1.9% in 2024 (after falling 3.3% in 2022).

In the near term, despite the global economic challenges, iron ore prices have so far remained relatively consistent. In October 2023 the average price of the 65% Fe index was US$128 per tonne, roughly equivalent to the average of the 65% Fe index for the second and third quarter of 2023. However, the pellet premiums have come under further pressure as steel producers in Europe (significant consumers of pellets) continue to face pressure. The pellet premium for October was US$38 per tonne compared to the average of US$49 per tonne in the third quarter of 2023.

Longer term, IOC remains well positioned to benefit from the movement to produce low emission green steel. The production of steel, a key material for infrastructure and net-zero energy transition, currently contributes around 7-9% of global carbon emissions. IOC's high-quality products, including direct reduction pellets, are part of the solution to reducing GHG emissions in the steel making process, as demonstrated by IOC's recent multi-year agreement to supply high grade direct reduction pellets to H2 Green Steel ("H2GS").  H2GS will process IOC's direct reduction pellets into low-carbon hot briquetted iron and then make steel through electric arc furnaces using green hydrogen at its flagship plant in Boden, Sweden. The Boden facility, which will hold one of the world's largest electrolysis plants for the production of green hydrogen, will be one of the world's first large-scale producers of low carbon iron and steel. By using green hydrogen in electric arc furnaces instead of coal in traditional steelmaking with a blast furnace, CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 95 percent.

LIORC has no debt and at September 30, 2023 had positive net working capital (current assets less current liabilities) of $25.8 million, which included the third quarter net royalty payment received from IOC on October 25, 2023 and the LIORC dividend in the amount of $0.95 per share paid to shareholders on the next day.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Directors of the Corporation,

Management's Discussion and Analysis

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Management's Discussion and Analysis section of Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation's ("LIORC" or the "Corporation") 2022 Annual Report, and the financial statements and notes contained therein and the September 30, 2023 interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

Overview of the Business

The Corporation's revenues are entirely dependent on the operations of IOC as its principal assets relate to the operations of IOC and its principal source of revenue is the 7% royalty it receives on all sales of iron ore products by IOC. In addition to the volume of iron ore sold, the Corporation's royalty revenue is affected by the price of iron ore and the Canadian – U.S. dollar exchange rate. The first quarter sales of IOC are traditionally adversely affected by the general winter operating conditions and are usually 15% – 20% of the annual volume, with the balance spread fairly evenly throughout the other three quarters. Because of the size of individual shipments, some quarters may be affected by the timing of the loading of ships that can be delayed from one quarter to the next.

The lower revenue, net income and equity earnings achieved in the third quarter of 2023 as compared to 2022 were mainly due to lower pellet prices and lower sales volumes of pellets and concentrate for sale ("CFS"). The third quarter of 2023 sales tonnage (pellets and CFS) was lower by 14% than the third quarter of 2022 mainly due to inventory availability and shipment timing. CFS sales tonnage was 5% lower than the same quarter last year and pellet sales tonnage was 22% lower than the same period in 2022.

The lower sales tonnage, together with a decrease in the realized sales price of pellets, resulted in royalty income of $47.0 million for the quarter as compared to $63.5 million for the same period in 2022. Third quarter 2023 cash flow from operations was $65.7 million or $1.03 per share compared to $78.5 million or $1.23 per share for the same period in 2022. LIORC received an IOC dividend in the second quarter of 2023 in the amount of $30.6 million or $0.49 per share compared to $34.2 million or $0.53 per share for the same period in 2022. Equity earnings from IOC amounted to $23.1 million or $0.36 per share in the third quarter of 2023 compared to $46.8 million or $0.73 per share for the same period in 2022.

IOC sells CFS based on the 65% Fe index. In the third quarter of 2023, the 65% Fe index averaged US$125 per tonne, an 8% increase over the average of US$115 per tonne in the third quarter of 2022. Iron ore prices, which were consistent with the prior quarter, increased over the third quarter of 2022 predominantly as a result of marginally higher global steel production and increasing expectations that government stimulus will lessen concerns over China's economy and its property sector. The monthly pellet premium averaged US$49 per tonne in the third quarter of 2023, down 39% from an average of US$80 per tonne in the same quarter of 2022, as global economic pressures on steel production outside of China continued to negatively impact the demand for iron ore pellets.

Based on sales as reported for the LIORC Royalty, the overall average price realized by IOC for CFS and pellets, FOB Sept-Îles, was approximately US$127 per tonne in the third quarter of 2023, compared to approximately US$146 per tonne in the third quarter of 2022 and US$125 per tonne in the second quarter of 2023. The decrease in the average realized price FOB Sept-Îles in 2023 was a result of lower pellet prices and to a lesser extent a change in product mix, as pellets represented 46% of sales in the third quarter of 2023, compared to 52% of sales in the same quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2023.

Standardized Cash Flow and Adjusted Cash Flow

For the Corporation, standardized cash flow is the same as cash flow from operating activities as recorded in the Corporation's cash flow statements as the Corporation does not incur capital expenditures or have any restrictions on dividends. Standardized cash flow per share was $1.03 for the quarter (2022 - $1.23).

The Corporation also reports "Adjusted cash flow" which is defined as cash flow from operating activities after adjustments for changes in amounts receivable, accounts payable and income taxes recoverable and payable. It is not a recognized measure under IFRS. The Directors believe that adjusted cash flow is a useful analytical measure as it better reflects cash available for dividends to shareholders.

The following reconciles standardized cash flow from operating activities to adjusted cash flow.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Corporation had $47.6 million in cash as at September 30, 2023 (December 31, 2022 - $39.9 million) with total current assets of $95.7 million (December 31, 2022 - $83.0 million). The Corporation had working capital of $25.8 million as at September 30, 2023 (December 31, 2022 - $28.9 million). The Corporation's operating cash flow was $65.7 million and the dividend paid during the quarter was $41.6 million, resulting in cash balances increasing by $24.1 million during the third quarter of 2023. In September the Directors of the Corporation declared the third quarter dividend of $60.8 million that was paid on October 26, 2023.

Cash balances consist of deposits in Canadian dollars with a Canadian chartered bank. Amounts receivable primarily consist of royalty payments from IOC. Royalty payments are received in U.S. dollars and converted to Canadian dollars on receipt, usually 25 days after the quarter end. The Corporation does not normally attempt to hedge this short-term foreign currency exposure.

Operating cash flow of the Corporation is sourced entirely from IOC through the Corporation's 7% royalty, 10 cents commission per tonne and dividends from its 15.10% equity interest in IOC. The Corporation normally pays cash dividends from the free cash flow generated from IOC to the maximum extent possible, subject to the maintenance of appropriate levels of working capital.

The Corporation has a $30 million revolving credit facility with a term ending September 18, 2025 with provision for annual one-year extensions. No amount is currently drawn under this facility (2022 – nil) leaving $30.0 million available to provide for any capital required by IOC or requirements of the Corporation.
