Goldcorp Increases Offer For Osisko To C$7.65 Per Share In Cash And Goldcorp Shares

Stocks in this article: G GG

VANCOUVER, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - GOLDCORP INC. (TSX: G) (NYSE: GG) today announced that it intends to increase its previously-announced offer to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Osisko Mining Corporation ("Osisko") (TSX: OSK, Deutsche Boerse: EWX) to C$7.65 per Osisko share for a total consideration of approximately C$3.6 billion (the "Offer").

Osisko shareholders who tender to the offer will be entitled to receive 0.17 of a Goldcorp common share plus an increase in the cash portion of the Offer to a total of C$2.92 for each Osisko common share.   The Offer represents a premium to the closing price of Osisko on April 9, 2014 and a superior alternative to the other proposal.

"The recent completion of our due diligence process has confirmed the technical and financial merits of our decision to acquire Osisko," said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We also remain excited about the opportunity to significantly expand our presence in Quebec.  Goldcorp's increased offer represents straightforward and superior value for Osisko shareholders, while ensuring accretion on key per-share metrics for Goldcorp shareholders.  Osisko shareholders will retain continued exposure to a consolidated and unencumbered interest in the Canadian Malartic gold mine and will participate in Goldcorp's growing portfolio of world-class assets.  The choice is clear for Osisko's shareholders."

The Offer will be modified such that the minimum tender condition will be satisfied if 50.1% or more of the outstanding Osisko common shares (on a fully diluted basis) have been validly deposited prior to the expiry of the Offer, which will be extended to 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 22, 2014. Goldcorp expects to be in position to take up and pay at the expiration of the Offer.

The Offer is being made by means of, and subject to, the terms and conditions set out in the Offer and Circular filed on January 14, 2014, as amended by the Notice of Extension and Variation that will be filed with Canadian provincial regulators and sent by Goldcorp to Osisko shareholders. The full details of Goldcorp's offer for Osisko are set out in the takeover bid circular (the "Circular") and related documents that were filed by Goldcorp with the Canadian provincial securities regulators and are available for review on Goldcorp's website at www.goldcorp.com and on SEDAR under Osisko's profile at www.sedar.com.

Goldcorp encourages securityholders of Osisko to read the full details of the offer set forth in the Circular, which contains the full terms and conditions of the offer and other important information, as well as detailed instructions on how Osisko shareholders can tender their Osisko shares to the offer. For assistance in depositing Osisko shares to the offer, Osisko shareholders should contact the Depositary, CST Trust Company, who can be contacted at 1-800-387-0825 toll free in North America or at 416-682-3860 outside of North America or by e-mail at inquiries@canstockta.com; or the Information Agent, D.F.
