Primero Mining announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Cerro Resources whereby Primero will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Cerro by way of a scheme of arrangement under the Australian Corporations Act 2001. Under the terms of the Arrangement, each Cerro shareholder will receive 0.023 of a Primero common share for each Cerro common share held. Additionally Cerro shareholders will receive 80.01% of the common shares of a newly incorporated company. Spinco will assume Cerro's interests in the Namiquipa, Espiritu Santo, Mt Philp and Kalman projects, shares in Syndicated Metals Limited and approximately $4M in cash. Primero will purchase a 19.99% interest in Spinco with anti-dilution rights for two years. Primero will also be entitled to appoint a director to the Spinco board of directors. Excluding the value of the Spinco exploration assets, the offer represents an implied 62% premium to Cerro's 20-day volume weighted average price and a 77% premium to the spot closing price at December 12. Upon completion of the Arrangement, existing Primero shareholders and Cerro shareholders will own approximately 85% and 15%, respectively, of the issued common shares of Primero. The total transaction value is approximately $119M.
