TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2022 / Vox Royalty Corp. (TSXV:VOX) (OTCQX:VOXCF) ('Vox' or the 'Company'), a returns focused precious metals royalty company, is pleased to announce its operating and financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. All amounts are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated.
Kyle Floyd, Chief Executive Officer stated: 'The first quarter of 2022 was incredibly productive for Vox, with record quarterly revenues and gross profit, significant organic growth in development stage assets and the progression of an initial application to list on The Nasdaq Stock Market. I am excited about the next chapter of the Company's corporate development - a period of expanded investor awareness and rapid organic growth from 5 to 10 producing assets by late 2023. During these uncertain inflationary and macroeconomic times, Vox continues to deliver sector leading returns on deployed capital through its differentiated and disciplined royalty strategy and presents as a strong outlet for investors to counter many inflationary pressures.'
