Eldorado Gold Completes Acquisition of QMX Gold
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eldorado Gold Corporation (TSX: ELD; NYSE: EGO) (“Eldorado” or “the Company”) and QMX Gold Corporation (TSX-V: QMX) (“QMX”) are
pleased to announce the successful acquisition by Eldorado of all of the outstanding common shares (the “QMX Shares”) in the capital of QMX not already owned by Eldorado, by way of a statutory plan
of arrangement under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “Arrangement”). The Arrangement became effective at 12:01 a.m. (Eastern Time) on April 7, 2021 (the
“Effective Time”) resulting in QMX becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eldorado.
“We are very pleased to complete the acquisition of QMX, which significantly increases Eldorado’s position in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt and is consistent with our strategy to invest in world-class mining jurisdictions. Eldorado is a committed partner for mining in Quebec, with exploration and operational success across our Lamaque operations. The addition of QMX to our portfolio opens a range of opportunities to expand our activities in the region and to leverage our existing infrastructure and Eldorado’s strong operational, exploration and stakeholder expertise,” said George Burns, Eldorado’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
Completion of the Arrangement
Under the terms of the Arrangement, each holder of QMX Shares is entitled to receive, for each QMX Share held immediately prior to the Effective Time, (i) C$0.075 in cash and (ii) 0.01523 of a common share (the “Eldorado Shares”) in the capital of Eldorado (together, the “Arrangement Consideration”), for total consideration of C$0.30 per QMX Share (based on the closing price of the Eldorado Shares on January 20, 2021).
With QMX now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Eldorado intends to de-list the QMX Shares from the TSX Venture Exchange as soon as practicable. Eldorado also intends to submit an application to the applicable securities regulators to have QMX cease to be a reporting issuer and terminate its public reporting obligations. Prior to the completion of the Arrangement, Eldorado owned, directly or indirectly, or exercised control or direction over, 68,125,000 QMX Shares representing approximately 15.55% of the issued and outstanding QMX Shares prior to the completion of the Arrangement.
