The Notice of Sale and Offer indicates that B2Gold and Rupert have entered into a letter agreement in respect of the Offer whereby, as consideration for the Ownership Interest, Rupert will issue to B2Gold 28,644,111 common shares of Rupert, implying a total value of C$102.8 million (based upon the market price of such shares as of March 8, 2024), in exchange for B2Gold’s 70% interest in the JV Company.  The transaction is conditional upon execution of a definitive agreement and investor rights agreement, completion of mutual due diligence and applicable regulatory approvals.
