Osisko Gold Royalties Announces Sale of Common Shares of Osisko Mining for Gross Proceeds of C$132 Million

 

 

 

 

 

Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. (TSX:OR) (NYSE:OR) announced that it has sold 50,023,569 common shares of Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK: TSX) pursuant to a bought block trade with National Bank Financial and BMO Capital Markets for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$132,000,000.

 

Following the transaction the Corporation no longer holds any common shares of Osisko Mining. The Corporation continues to hold its 2.0 to 3.0% NSR royalty on the Windfall Gold Project and the surrounding property, held by a 50/50 joint-venture partnership between Osisko Mining and Gold Fields Limited.

 

Paul Martin, interim Chief Executive Officer of Osisko commented: “The sale of our equity position in Osisko Mining serves two important purposes. Firstly, it reaffirms Osisko’s commitment to aligning ourselves as a pure-play precious metals royalty and streaming company. Secondly, it bolsters our financial position by injecting immediate cash resources, therefore restoring our balance sheet to a strong position. We remain extremely enthusiastic about our ongoing partnership with both Osisko Mining and Gold Fields at Windfall; a fully-funded, high-grade gold project, situated in the province of Québec, one of the world’s best mining jurisdictions. Osisko maintains its exposure to Windfall through its 2.0 to 3.0% NSR royalty on the project, and the surrounding property.”

 

Early Warning Disclosure

 

Immediately prior to the transaction, Osisko owned 50,023,569 common shares of Osisko Mining, representing approximately 13.3% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Osisko Mining on a non-diluted basis. Osisko disposed of the common shares in the ordinary course of business. Osisko held its common shares for investment purposes and, following the transaction, Osisko no longer holds any common shares of Osisko Mining. Osisko disposed of the common shares at a price per share equal to C$2.63, net of any applicable commissions.

 

Osisko will file an early warning report under National Instrument 62-103 in connection with the transaction.
