Forward-looking information is based on certain assumptions and other important factors that have been made by Sandstorm as at the date of such information and is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of Sandstorm to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including but not limited to: the impact of general business and economic conditions; the mines underlying Sandstorm’s streaming and royalty portfolio, the future price of gold, silver and other commodity prices, the timing of development of mines underlying the company’s streams and royalties, the expected cost profile of mining partners and their underlying assets, and the timing and amount of estimated future production, absence of control over mining operations from which Sandstorm will purchase gold and other commodities and risks related to those mining operations, including risks related to international operations, government and environmental regulation, actual results of current exploration activities, conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; problems inherent to the marketability of minerals; industry conditions, including fluctuations in the price of metals, fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and fluctuations in interest rates; government entities interpreting existing tax legislation or enacting new tax legislation in a way which adversely affects Sandstorm; stock market volatility; competition; as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled “Risks to Sandstorm” herein and those risks discussed in the section entitled “Risks to Sandstorm” in Sandstorm’s annual report for the financial year ended December 31, 2019 and the Company’s annual information form dated March 30, 2020 available at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov and incorporated by reference herein.
Forward-looking information in this website includes, among other things, disclosure regarding Sandstorm’s existing gold streams and royalties as well as its future outlook, and the Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource estimates for each and any of royalties and commodity streams in Sandstorm’s portfolio and the respective underlying mines therein. Forward-looking information is based upon certain assumptions and other important factors that, if untrue, could cause the actual results, performances, or achievements of Sandstorm to be materially different from future results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by such statements.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources
This website may use the terms "Measured", "Indicated" and "Inferred" Resources.

United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

Sandstorm has included certain performance measures on the website that do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) including average cash cost per attributable gold equivalent ounce, average realized gold price per attributable ounce, cash operating margin, cash flows from operating activities excluding changes in non-cash working capital, and all-in sustaining cost per gold ounce on a co-product basis. Average cash cost per attributable gold equivalent ounce is calculated by dividing the Company’s cost of sales, excluding depletion by the number of attributable gold equivalent ounces sold. The Company presents average cash cost per ounce as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other streaming companies in the precious metals mining industry who present results on a similar basis. Average realized gold price per attributable ounce is calculated by dividing the Company’s revenue by the number of Attributable Gold Equivalent ounces sold. The Company presents average realized gold price per attributable ounce as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other streaming companies in the precious metals mining industry that present results on a similar basis. Cash operating margin is calculated by subtracting the average cash cost per attributable gold equivalent ounce from the average realized selling price per attributable gold equivalent ounce. The Company presents cash operating margin as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other companies in the precious metals mining industry who present results on a similar basis. The Company has also used the non-IFRS measure of cash flows from operating activities excluding changes in non-cash working capital. This measure is calculated by adding back the decrease or subtracting the increase in changes in non-cash working capital to or from cash provided by (used in) operating activities. The Company presents cash flows from operating activities excluding changes in non-cash working capital as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other streaming companies in the precious metals mining industry that present results on a similar basis. With respect to the Hod Maden project, the Company presents all-in sustaining cost per gold ounce on a co-product basis and all-in sustaining cost per gold ounces on a by-product basis, as it believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance in comparison to other companies in the precious metals mining industry that present results on a similar basis. All-in sustaining cost per gold ounce on a co-product basis is calculated by removing the impact of other metals that are produced as a result of gold production and apportions the costs (operating costs, royalties, treatment and refining costs and sustaining capital) to each commodity produced on a percentage of revenue basis. These gold apportioned costs are then divided by the payable gold ounces produced. [(Operating Costs ($557.6 million) + Royalties ($131.4 million) + Treatment & Refining Costs ($164.9 million) + Sustaining Capital ($114.2 million)) x Gold Revenue ($2,586.4 million)/Total Revenue ($3,360.8 million)] / Payable Gold Ounces (1,990,000 oz) = $374 all in sustaining cost per ounce]. All-in sustaining cost per gold ounce on a by-product basis is calculated by deducting copper and silver revenue from the summation of certain costs (operating costs, royalties, treatment and refining costs and sustaining capital). The resulting figure is then divided by the payable gold ounces produced. [(Operating Costs ($557.6m) + Royalties ($131.4m) + Treatment & Refining Costs ($164.9m) + Sustaining Capital ($114.2m) – Copper Revenue ($771.8m) - Silver Revenue ($2.5m)] / Payable Gold Ounces (1,990k oz) = $97/oz Au. Sandstorm has included attributable gold equivalent ounces as a performance measure in this press release which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).The Company’s royalty and other commodity stream revenue is converted to an attributable gold equivalent ounce basis by dividing the royalty and other commodity stream revenue for that period by the average realized gold price per ounce from the Company’s gold streams for the same respective period. These attributable gold equivalent ounces when combined with the gold ounces sold from the Company’s gold streams equal total attributable gold equivalent ounces sold and may be subject to change. The presentation of this non-IFRS measure is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate these non-IFRS measures differently. Note these figures have not been audited and are subject to change.
