Franco-Nevada Announces 2013 Year-End Results, Increases Dividend and Provides Outlook

March 19, 2014

TORONTO, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Franco-Nevada Corporation (TSX: FNV);
(NYSE: FNV) today reported 2013 year end results realizing 241,402 Gold
Equivalent Ounces((3)) and $67.0 million in revenue for its oil & gas assets. Net income was
$11.7 million, or $0.08 per share, which included after-tax impairment
charges of $114.0 million. Adjusted Net Income((1)) was $138.3 million, or $0.94 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA((2)) was $322.5 million, or $2.20 per share. For the fourth quarter of 2013,
Franco-Nevada realized a net loss of $80.6 million, or $0.55 per share,
which included after-tax impairment charges of $108.1 million. Adjusted
Net Income((1)) for the quarter was $30.5 million, or $0.21 per share, and Adjusted
EBITDA((2)) was $77.3 million, or $0.53 per share.

An impairment charge of $107.9 million was recorded on our McCreedy
precious metal stream located in Sudbury as KGHM International Ltd.
announced that it would cease production of contact nickel ores as its
off-take contract has been cancelled. In addition, an impairment of
$24.2 million was recorded on our interest in Falcondo, a ferronickel
operation located in the Dominican Republic, as Glencore Xstrata has
put the operation on care and maintenance. Neither of these impairments
impacted guidance, revenue or Adjusted EBITDA.

“In 2013, Franco-Nevada’s portfolio performed very well despite lower
gold prices,” said David Harquail, President and CEO of
Franco-Nevada. “We exceeded guidance for both our projected GEOs and
oil & gas revenues. We expect our existing portfolio will continue to
generate a growing number of ounces over the next five years.
Franco-Nevada remains financially strong and debt-free and we expect to
continue to grow with further investments.”

“This is our sixth year of financial results since Franco-Nevada was
reborn as a public company in late 2007. Over those six years, our
business model has created real shareholder value with our share price
outperforming both gold and gold equity benchmarks. In 2013,
Franco-Nevada paid over $100 million in dividends to shareholders.
We’re pleased to continue the tradition of increasing dividends with an
11% increase to our dividend starting in the second quarter of 2014. We
are proud to continue to differentiate Franco-Nevada as the gold
investment that works.”

Financial Results

For the fourth quarter of 2013, Gold Equivalent Ounces(3) (“GEOs”) were
69,741 representing a 17.5% increase over the same period of 2012.
Despite a 26.0% lower average gold price and a 12.9% lower average
platinum price for the quarter, the Company saw growth in its GEOs from
higher production levels from International and Canadian gold assets
and PGM assets, partially offset by lower production from U.S. gold
assets. In addition, our oil & gas assets generated $12.6 million in
revenues during the quarter. Revenue was earned 83% from precious
metals (69% gold and 14% PGMs) and 83% from North America and Australia
(39% Canada, 14% U.S., 24% Mexico and 6% Australia).

The breakdown of revenue and GEOs((3)) is as follows:

Corporate Updates

        --  Cerro Moro:In January 2014, Franco-Nevada entered into an
            agreement with AngloGold Ashanti Limited to acquire an existing
            2.0% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on Yamana's Gold Inc.'s
            Cerro Moro project located in Argentina for the Argentine peso
            equivalent of $23.5 million (at the official Argentine peso
            exchange rate) in cash.  The transaction is expected to close
            during H1 2014.

        --  Klondex Gold:On February 11, 2014, Franco-Nevada entered into
            gold purchase and royalty agreements with Klondex Mines Ltd.
            ("Klondex") which provided for the pre-paid purchase of 38,250
            ounces of gold and a 2.5% NSR on Klondex's Fire Creek and Midas
            properties, both of which are located in Nevada, U.S., for
            total consideration of $35.0 million in cash. Under the terms
            of the gold purchase agreement, the prepaid gold deliveries
            will be made at the end of each month with the first delivery
            due on June 30, 2014 and the last delivery due on December 31,
            2018.  The annualized delivery schedule is: 6,750 ounces in
            2014, 7,500 ounces in 2015 and 8,000 ounces in each of 2016,
            2017 and 2018.  The NSR royalties will become payable following
            completion of the pre-paid deliveries.

        --  Sabodala:On December 12, 2013, Franco-Nevada acquired a 6% gold
            stream on Teranga Gold Corporation's Sabodala gold project
            located in Senegal, Africa. Under the terms of the gold stream
            agreement, the Company funded a $135.0 million deposit in
            exchange for 22,500 ounces of gold per year, payable monthly,
            for the first six years of the agreement, after which the
            Company will purchase 6% of the gold produced from Sabodala.
            The Company will pay 20% of the market price of gold for each
            ounce delivered under the agreement.

        --  On March 19, 2014, the Company extended its credit facility for
            an additional two years with the amended expiry being March 19,
            2019.  As at December 31, 2013, Franco-Nevada had working
            capital(4) of $861.2 million, no debt with an undrawn $500.0
            million unsecured five-year revolving credit facility.

2014 Guidance

For 2014, the Company expects attributable royalty and stream production
to total 245,000 to 265,000 GEOs((3)) from its mineral assets and revenue of $60 million to $70 million from
its oil & gas assets. For the 2014 guidance, platinum and palladium
metals have been converted to GEOs using assumed commodity prices of
$1,300/oz Au, $1,400/oz Pt and $725/oz Pd. The WTI oil price is assumed
to average $95 per barrel with higher discounts for Canadian oil than
experienced in 2013.

Five Year Outlook (2018)

Our five year outlook is based upon the respective operators’ public
projections for each asset. Using the same commodity price assumptions
as for 2014 and assuming no other acquisitions, the Company expects its
existing portfolio to generate by 2018 between 300,000 to 325,000 gold
equivalent ounces and $65 to $75 million in oil & gas revenues. This
outlook is also based on the following assumptions:

        --  Cobre Panama:The outlook assumes a successful commissioning of
            the Cobre Panama project with operations performing at 50%
            capacity in 2018 of the annualized production levels projected
            by First Quantum.
        --  Detour Gold:  The outlook assumes the successful ramp-up to
            full production of the Detour Lake mine to produce on average
            657,000 ounces per year over the life of mine. No further
            expansion has been assumed within the next five years.

        --  Tasiast: The outlook assumes no material expansion within the
            five year period. Production levels in 2018 are assumed to be
            comparable to current production levels.

        --  New mines: The outlook assumes new mines will be contributing
            to the portfolio at levels close to the current operator's
            projections at Rosemont(owned by Augusta Resource), Phoenix
            (owned by Rubicon Minerals), Agi Dagi(owned by Alamos Gold),
            Duketon(comprising Rosemont and Erlistoun and owned by Regis
            Resources) and Peculiar Knob(owned by Arrium Limited).Increased
            production is expected by 2018 at Subika (operated by Newmont
            Mining) and Holt(operated by St Andrews).  Lower production is
            expected by 2018 at Palmarejoand Goldstrike. 

        --  Oil & gas: The outlook assumes the ongoing enhanced oil
            recovery capital program at Weyburn and Canadian oil price
            differentials returning to historic norms.

Portfolio Update

        --  Gold - U.S.:Capital spending associated with Barrick Gold
            Corporation's ("Barrick") ongoing thiosulphate project at
            Goldstrike and a lower average gold price continued to impact
            the Company's net profit interest ("NPI") royalty which
            resulted in lower GEOs and revenue for the quarter. In
            addition, Barrick reported a reduction in the ore tons
            processed through the autoclave due to the construction
            activities. The thiosulfate project is expected to bring
            forward production which is expected to benefit Franco-Nevada
            in future periods. For 2014, the Company expects to earn
            slightly higher GEOs than 2013 levels. At Gold Quarry, where
            the royalty has minimum provisions, the Company expects to
            receive 11,250 ounces. GEOs from Marigold, Bald Mountain and
            Mesquite are expected to be lower in 2014 but will be more than
            offset by GEOs from the newly acquired Fire Creek asset.
            Overall GEOs from U.S gold assets are expected to be higher in
            2014 than 2013.

        --  Gold - Canada:GEOs from Canadian gold assets are expected to
            benefit from higher production from Detour Gold Corporation's
            Detour Lake mine and the Kirkland Lake royalty which was
            acquired in October 2013. In addition, Lake Shore Gold Corp.
            announced the completion of its mill expansion during the third
            quarter of 2013 which will benefit Franco-Nevada's royalty on
            the Timmins West property. Pretium Resources Inc. announced
            results from its bulk sampling program and filed a technical
            report which included a Mineral Resource estimate for its
            Brucejack project. The Government of Canada has announced that
            it will not issue the federal authorizations necessary for the
            development of the New Prosperity project, as a result the New
            Prosperity project continues to be excluded from
            Franco-Nevada's long term projections.  GEOs earned from
            Canadian gold assets in 2014 are expected to be in-line with
            2013 levels.

        --  Gold - Australia:Regis Resources Ltd. ("Regis") announced the
            completion of construction and the commencement of
            commissioning of its Rosemont Gold project, which comprises
            part of the Duketon project. In February 2014, Regis also
            announced a 4-6 week suspension of open pit mining at Garden
            Well and Rosemont due to flooding. Alacer Gold Corp. sold its
            South Kalgoorlie operations on which Franco-Nevada has a
            royalty, to a subsidiary of Metals X Limited, an Australian
            publicly-listed company. GEOs from Australian gold assets are
            expected to be slightly higher in 2014 than 2013.

        --  Gold - Rest of World:First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ("First
            Quantum") announced the results of its review of the Cobre
            Panama project which included a larger project with installed
            capacity approximately 17% higher than the original plan and a
            revised development timeframe with first concentrate production
            expected in the fourth quarter of 2017. Franco-Nevada expects
            to fund approximately $200.0 million in 2014 under its precious
            metals stream agreement on the Cobre Panama project. Coeur
            Mining, Inc. reported annual production of 116,536 ounces of
            gold from Palmarejo and provided 2014 guidance of 87,000-95,000
            ounces of gold. The Company holds a 50% gold stream over
            Palmarejo which includes an annual minimum of 50,000 ounces,
            payable monthly.  Overall Rest of World gold assets are
            expected to generate higher GEOs in 2014.

        --  PGM Assets:Stillwater Mining Company has announced its 2014
            guidance of between 520,000-535,000 ounces of palladium and
            platinum which is in-line with 2013 production levels.
            Production from KGHM International Ltd.'s ("KGHM") Morrison
            mine is expected to be in-line with 2013 levels. KGHM announced
            plans to reduce mining at its McCreedy mine due to the
            cancellation of a nickel processing contract. While mining of
            the contact nickel ore at McCreedy was not attributable to the
            Franco-Nevada's stream, the reduction in the labor force
            resulted in Franco-Nevada recording an impairment charge on
            this asset.
        --
        --  Oil & gas: Q4 revenues were lower than Q3 due to lower oil
            prices, higher differentials and pipeline apportionments. For
            2014, revenues are expected to be comparable to 2013 with
            slightly lower volumes and price discounts offset by reduced
            capital spending.

Dividend Information

Franco-Nevada is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has
decided to raise its dividend and move to quarterly dividend payments,
both effective for the second quarter of 2014. The dividend will
increase to $0.20 per share per quarter, an increase of two cents per
share per quarter, resulting in an effective annual dividend of $0.80
per share compared to $0.72 per share paid in 2013. The Board of
Directors plans on formally declaring the second quarter dividend of
$0.20 per share in May 2014 with payment by the end of June 2014.
Moving to a quarterly dividend should reduce the foreign exchange
exposure shareholders have been assuming with our monthly declarations.

properties that are not yet in production; integration of acquired
assets; and the absence of any other factors that could cause actions,
events or results to differ from those anticipated, estimated or
intended. However, there can be no assurance that forward looking

NON-IFRS MEASURES: Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Working Capital are intended to
provide additional information only and do not have any standardized
meaning prescribed under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation
or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance
with IFRS. These measures are not necessarily indicative of operating
profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Other
companies may calculate these measures differently. For a
reconciliation of these measures to various IFRS measures, please see
below or the Company’s current MD&A disclosure found on the Company’s
website, on SEDAR and on EDGAR.


    (1)  Adjusted Net Income is defined by the Company as net income (loss)
         excluding foreign exchange gains/losses, gains/losses on the sale
         of investments, impairment charges related to royalties, streams,
         working interests and investments, unusual non-recurring items,
         and the impact of taxes on all these items.

    (2)  Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income (loss)
         excluding income tax expense/recovery, finance income and costs,
         foreign exchange gains/losses, gains/losses on the sale of
         investments, income/losses from equity investments, depletion and
         depreciation and impairment charges related to royalties, streams,
         working interests and investments.

    (3)  GEOs include our gold, platinum, palladium and other mineral
         assets. GEOs are estimated on a gross basis for NSR royalties and,
         in the case of stream ounces, before the payment of the per ounce
         contractual price paid by the Company. For NPI royalties, GEOs are
         calculated taking into account the NPI economics. Platinum,
         palladium and other minerals were converted to GEOs by dividing
