Yamana Gold's Brio Gold files preliminary prospectus relating to purchase rights

Yamana Gold announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Brio Gold, has filed a preliminary prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada in connection with qualifying a secondary offering of Brio Gold common shares held by Yamana, which will be transferred to purchasers through and subject to the exercise of purchase rights. Yamana intends to distribute the Purchase Rights to its shareholders as a dividend in-kind. The Purchase Rights shall provide Yamana Shareholders with an opportunity to purchase from Yamana a portion of its Brio Shares. The exercise price will be determined in the context of the market prior to the filing of a final prospectus. The effect of the Offering will be to spin-off Brio Gold as a standalone public company on the closing of the Offering. The Spin-Off is being undertaken for the benefit of Yamana Shareholders and is the final stage of a plan that the Company implemented beginning in 2014 to surface value from certain non-core properties in Brazil. Completion of the Spin-Off will also enable Yamana to better focus on its portfolio of six, soon to be seven, producing mines in top mining jurisdictions and on its organic growth pipeline. In particular, Yamana will be better positioned to focus on recent exploration success, optimization initiatives, and on advancing Canadian exploration and near-term development opportunities. Yamana will maintain exposure to Brio Gold through a retained equity interest following completion of the Spin-Off. The Purchase Rights allow Yamana Shareholders who choose to exercise their Purchase Rights to have more direct exposure to Brio Gold, while allowing those Yamana Shareholders that do not exercise their Purchase Rights to benefit through the sale of the Purchase Rights and through exposure to Brio Gold via Yamana's retained interest.
