Altius Renewable Royalties Reports Q3 Expected Attributable Royalty Revenue(1) of $1.6 Million, Increases Guidance
Altius Renewable Royalties Corp. (TSX: ARR) (OTCQX: ATRWF) (“ARR”, the “Company”, or the “Corporation”), expects to report Q3 2022 attributable royalty revenue of $1.6 million, which compares to $0.03 million of attributable royalty revenue recorded in Q3 2021 and $0.6 million in Q2 2022. Revenue in the third quarter exceeded the total revenue for the first half of the year, driven primarily by strong summer merchant power prices. As a result, the 50% owned Great Bay Renewables (“GBR”) joint venture has increased its 2022 annual royalty revenue guidance to $6.5 – $7.0 million from the $4.5 – $5.5 million previously provided.
Frank Getman, CEO of GBR, commented, “We are pleased with the performance of our growing portfolio of diversified renewable energy royalties. We are benefitting from partial exposure in our royalty portfolio to higher than anticipated merchant power prices, particularly in Texas.” Getman added, “Three additional projects with a total capacity of 975 megawatts are expected to hit commercial operations over the next six months, thus adding to the revenue growth in 2023. In addition, with a significant portfolio of advancing development stage projects, we believe we are well positioned for continued revenue growth for the foreseeable future.”
