Reserves shown for Goldcorp as of June 30, 2018. Reserves shown for Newmont as of December 31, 2018. References to reserves herein represent gold reserves only. Newmont’s reserves were prepared in compliance with Industry Guide 7 published by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). For more information, see Newmont’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 21, 2019 for the “Proven and Probable Reserve” table prepared in compliance with the SEC’s Industry Guide 7, which is available at www.sec.gov or on Newmont’s website. Newmont has not been involved in the preparation of Goldcorp’s reserve estimates. Accordingly, Newmont assumes no responsibility for such estimates. The Goldcorp reserve figures herein are as of June 30, 2018 and are sourced from Goldcorp’s public information. Goldcorp’s reserves were prepared in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) pursuant to the requirements of the Canadian securities laws, which differ from the requirements of United States securities laws. The definitions used in NI 43-101 are incorporated by reference from the CIM Definition Standards adopted by CIM Council on May 10, 2014 (the “CIM Definition Standards”). U.S. reporting requirements are governed by the SEC Industry Guide 7, as followed by Newmont. These reporting standards have similar goals in terms of conveying an appropriate level of confidence in the disclosures being reported, but embody different approaches and definitions. Under Industry Guide 7 standards, a “final” or “bankable” feasibility study is typically required to report reserves or cash flow analysis to designate reserves. A breakdown of Newmont and Goldcorp’s reserves and resources are provided below:
Statements relating to Newmont’s proposed acquisition of Goldcorp and related expectations or estimates of future results are considered “forward-looking statements.” The transaction remains subject to receipt of required shareholder and regulatory approvals and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions. No assurances can be provided that the transaction will close. Forward-looking information representing post-closing expectations is inherently uncertain. Estimates such as expected future production, free cash flow, divestitures, accretion, development capital, internal rate of return, synergies, full potential results, upside, net asset value, net present value creation, and asset sales following closing are preliminary in nature and subject to change. There can be no assurance that the proposed Newmont Goldcorp transaction will close or that the forward-looking information will prove to be accurate. See cautionary statement regarding forward-looking statements below. Similarly, the proposed NV joint venture also remains subject to closing, receipt of governmental approvals, if required, and satisfaction of the conditions of the implementation agreement between Barrick and Newmont. No assurances can be provided that the NV joint venture will close or that the related forward-looking information will prove to be accurate.
- Internal rates of return (IRR) targets on projects are calculated using an assumed $1,200 gold price.
Anticipated annualized dividends represents management’s current expectations. Management’s expectations with respect to future dividends or annualized dividends “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which are intended to be covered by the safe harbor created by such sections and other applicable laws. 2019 dividends beyond Q1 2019 have not yet been approved or declared by the Board of Directors. Investors are cautioned that such statements with respect to future dividends are non-binding. The declaration and payment of future dividends remain at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will be determined based on Newmont’s financial results, balance sheet strength, cash and liquidity requirements, future prospects, gold and commodity prices, and other factors deemed relevant by the Board. The Board of Directors reserves all powers related to the declaration and payment of dividends. Consequently, in determining the dividend to be declared and paid on the common stock of the Company, the Board of Directors may revise or terminate the payment level at any time without prior notice. As a result, investors should not place undue reliance on such statements.
Net Present Value creation as used in this website is a management estimate provided for illustrative purposes, and should not be considered a GAAP or non-GAAP financial measure. Net Present Value creation represents management’s combined estimate of pre-tax synergies, supply chain efficiencies and Full Potential improvements, as a result of the proposed transaction that have been monetized and projected over a twenty year period for purposes of the estimation, applying a discount rate of 5 percent. Such estimates are necessarily imprecise and are based on numerous judgments and assumptions. Expected Net Present Value creation is a “forward-looking statement” subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual value creation to differ from expected value creation.
