Newmont announces conditional special dividend
March 25, 2019

Newmont Mining Corp. announced that its board of directors declared a one-time special dividend of US88 cents per share of common stock, conditional upon approval of the Goldcorp Inc. transaction. The dividend will be paid to Newmont shareholders of record as of April 17, 2019 (the record date), which is prior to closing of the proposed Newmont Goldcorp combination. The special dividend is conditional upon the approval by both Newmont’s and Goldcorp’s shareholders of the resolutions to be considered at their shareholder meetings on April 4 and April 11, 2019, respectively, in connection with the proposed transaction. The special dividend will be paid, subject to satisfaction of the conditions, on May 1, 2019. Closing of the Newmont Goldcorp transaction is expected shortly after the two shareholder special meetings if shareholders of both companies approve the resolutions.

The special dividend delivers value to existing Newmont shareholders with an immediate cash payment for a portion of the synergy potential arising from the Nevada joint venture announced with Barrick Gold Corp. on March 11, 2019. The dividend will be paid to the holders of Newmont’s currently outstanding shares as of the record date, and not in respect of shares to be issued in connection with the proposed Newmont Goldcorp transaction.

“We are pleased to make this special dividend payable to Newmont’s current shareholders in recognition of the potential synergy value of the Nevada joint venture agreement,” said Gary Goldberg, chief executive officer. “We have continued to engage with, and have listened carefully to, our shareholders, and we are pleased that several of our largest shareholders have expressed their support for the combination with Goldcorp.”

Newmont also announced today that Mexico’s Competition Commission approved the combination of Newmont and Goldcorp without conditions. This follows clearance from the Canadian Competition Bureau and the Korea Fair Trade Commission in February. Newmont and Goldcorp continue cooperating with other regulatory agencies to secure the remaining approvals that are conditions to closing.

The proposed combination with Goldcorp represents a significant value creation opportunity for Newmont’s shareholders, providing the combined company’s shareholders with an unmatched portfolio of world class operations, projects, exploration opportunities, Reserves and talent. Newmont’s Board of Directors continues to unanimously support the transaction with Goldcorp.
