Gold Royalty Announces US$30 Million Bought Deal Financing

BASE SHELF PROSPECTUS AND PRELIMINARY PROSPECTUS SUPPLEMENT ACCESSIBLE AND FINAL PROSPECTUS SUPPLEMENT TO BE ACCESSIBLE WITHIN TWO BUSINESS DAYS ON SEDAR+

Gold Royalty Corp. (‘ Gold Royalty ‘ or the ‘ Company ‘) (NYSE American: GROY) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with National Bank Financial Inc. and BMO Capital Markets Corp., as joint book-runners, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively, the ‘ Underwriters ‘), pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 17,442,000 units of the Company (the ‘ Units ‘) at a price of US$1.72 per Unit (the ‘ Offering Price ‘), for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately US$30 million (the ‘ Offering ‘).

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each a ‘ Common Share ‘) and one common share purchase warrant (each a ‘ Warrant ‘). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share of the Company for a period of thirty-six months at an exercise price of US$2.25. Subject to receipt of the necessary approvals, the Common Shares as well as the Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants will be listed on the NYSE American. The Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to list the Warrants on the NYSE American following closing of the Offering.

The Company has granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option, exercisable in whole or in part at any time at the Offering Price up to 30 days after closing of the Offering, to purchase up to an additional 15% of the number of Units issued pursuant to the Offering, for additional gross proceeds to the Company of up to approximately US$4.5 million, to acquire Units, Common Shares and/or Warrants (or any combination thereof).

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund a portion of the consideration for its acquisition (the ‘ Acquisition ‘) of a copper stream (the ‘ Stream ‘) in respect of the Vares Silver Project, operated by a subsidiary of Adriatic Metals plc and located in Bosnia and Herzegovina pursuant to a purchase and sale agreement (the ‘ PSA ‘) between the Company and OMF Fund III (Cr) Ltd., an entity managed by Orion Mine Finance Management LP (‘ Orion ‘). Under the terms of the PSA, Gold Royalty will pay US$50 million to acquire the Stream from Orion at the closing of the Acquisition, comprised of US$45 million payable in cash and US$5 million to be satisfied by the issuance of 2,906,977 Gold Royalty shares.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about May 31, 2024 (the ‘ Closing Date ‘), subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of all necessary approvals of the NYSE American in accordance with its applicable listing requirements. The closing of the Offering is not conditional upon the completion of the Acquisition. In the event that the Acquisition is not completed, the Company may reallocate the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate purposes, including to fund other acquisitions or repay outstanding indebtedness.

The Offering will be made in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, other than Quebec and Nunavut, by way of a prospectus supplement to the Company’s Canadian short form base shelf prospectus dated July 15, 2022. The Company has also filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘ SEC ‘) a registration statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-265581), containing a shelf prospectus dated July 6, 2022, which was declared effective by the SEC on July 15, 2022. The securities in the Offering are being offered only by means of a prospectus, including a prospectus supplement, forming a part of the registration statement. A preliminary prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus relating to, and describing the terms of, the Offering has been filed with the SEC. The Offering may also be made on a private placement basis in other international jurisdictions in reliance on applicable private placement exemptions. Before investing, prospective investors should read the Canadian base shelf prospectus and the prospectus supplement thereto, or the registration statement, including the U.S. base prospectus therein, and the prospectus supplement thereto, as applicable, including, in each case, the documents attached thereto or incorporated by reference therein, for more complete information about the Company and the Offering.

These documents may be accessed for free on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (‘ SEDAR+ ‘) at www.sedarplus.ca and on the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval system (‘ EDGAR ‘) at www.sec.gov . An electronic or paper copy of the base shelf prospectus, the preliminary prospectus supplement and the final prospectus supplement (when filed) as well as any amendment to the documents may be obtained in Canada, without charge, from National Bank Financial Inc. by phone at (416) 869-6534 or by email at NBF-Syndication@bnc.ca or from BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc. by phone at 905-791-3151 Ext 4312 or by email at torbramwarehouse@datagroup.ca and in the United States by contacting National Bank of Canada Financial Inc. by phone at (416) 869-6534 or by email at NBF-Syndication@bnc.ca or BMO Capital Markets Corp. by phone at 800-414-3627 or by email at bmoprospectus@bmo.com , by providing the contact with an email address or address, as applicable.

It is expected that delivery of the Units will be made against payment therefor on or about the Closing Date, which will be three business days following the date of the prospectus supplement (this settlement cycle being referred to as ‘T+3’). Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market are generally required to settle in one business day (this settlement cycle being referred to as ‘T+1’), unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers who wish to trade their Common Shares, Warrants or Common Shares underlying the Warrants issuable upon exercise thereof prior to the Closing Date will be required, by virtue of the fact that the Units will not settle in T+1, to specify an alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement. Purchasers of Units who wish to trade their Common Shares, Warrants or Common Shares underlying the Warrants issuable upon exercise thereof prior to the Closing Date should consult their own advisors. Furthermore, the Company has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to list the Warrants on the NYSE American. Listing will be subject to fulfilling all listing requirements of the NYSE American. As a result, the Warrants will not be immediately tradeable over the facilities of the NYSE American on the Closing Date.
