TORONTO/LONDON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Gold miners look set to extend a deal spree after notching transactions worth a record $30.5 billion this year, according to data, the biggest M&A binge since bullion prices peaked nearly a decade ago. Led by top producers Newmont Goldcorp Corp and Barrick Gold Corp, miners are bulking up to replace dwindling reserves and win back investors who in recent years shunned the sector because of disappointing returns. Gold topped $1,900 per ounce in 2011 and currently trades around $1,484, after hitting a six-year high in September.

(Bloomberg) -- Cash is king and will be hard to top by a rival bidder, according to the head of Continental Gold Inc. which agreed to a C$1.37 billion ($1 billion) takeover offer from China’s largest listed producer of mined gold.Continental’s shares rose as much as 11% in Toronto on Monday after the offer from Fujian-based Zijin Mining Group Co. was announced. That’s in contrast to Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd., whose shares plunged 17% on Nov. 25 after it made an all-stock $3.7 billion takeover bid for Detour Gold Corp.“Cash bids are very rare in the gold mining space and we delivered one,” Ari Sussman, chief executive officer of Toronto-based Continental, said in a phone interview on Monday. Only a handful of gold miners would be able to pull it off, he said.The deal is the latest in a flurry of consolidation in the mining industry. Barrick Gold Corp. took over Randgold Resources Ltd. and Newmont Mining Corp. acquired Goldcorp Inc. last year and smaller miners are hurrying to keep up and stay in the game.Speculation has long-brewed that Continental was a takeover target. Sussman said he started shopping the company after Newmont’s acquisition of Goldcorp in January, figuring that Newmont, which owns 18.4% of Continental, would have its hands full with Goldcorp and be looking to get rid of non-core assets.Zijin will pay C$5.50 a share for Continental and said Newmont was supportive, according to a statement. The deal will give Zinjin control of Continental’s Buritica gold project in Colombia, which is currently being developed. Continental share were trading at C$5.36 at 1:55 p.m. in Toronto, up almost 10%.“There were obviously multiple levels of interest” for Continental, Sussman said. In terms of possible rival bid, he thinks “Anything is possible but it’s tough to beat the bid number.”The takevover by a foreign company will need Canadian government approval and relations between the two countries have been tense of late with China holding two Canadians in prison and Canada holding the CFO of Huawei Technologies Co. on an extradition order from the U.S.Last year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government blocked a proposed C$1.2 billion ($934 million) takeover of construction firm Aecon Group Inc. by a unit of China Communications Construction Co. citing security concerns associated with Chinese investment.It “would be very far-fetched” to have any pushback for this deal, Sussman said. “Maybe that question would have been more valid if our asset was in Canada,” he added. “This is more China coming to Colombia as governments are supportive of each other.”Steven Butler, an analyst at GMP Securities Ltd., said the value of the deal was less than hoped for but he doesn’t see a superior offer for Continental forthcoming “given the geopolitical risk associated with Colombia, the potential working capital-funding risk and the all-cash nature of the deal.” Sussman thinks it’s a good time to sell as risks build heading into production.“Look at the laundry list of companies which have gone into production in last five years and look at the challenges they faced,” he said. “We thought this would be the right time, for someone with deep pockets, to take over our excellent team.”To contact the reporter on this story: Aoyon Ashraf in Toronto at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at firstname.lastname@example.org, ;David Scanlan at email@example.com, Jacqueline ThorpeFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Newmont Goldcorp Corp. said Monday it has set a $1 billion stock repurchase program, to be completed in the next 12 months. Based on Friday's stock closing price of $38.40, the program implies the buyback of up to 26 million shares, or about 3.2% of the shares outstanding. The stock rose 0.3% in morning trading. The gold miner also said Monday that it expects 2020 attributable gold production of 6.7 million ounces at an all-in sustaining cost of $975 per ounce, compared with the FactSet gold production consensus of 6.98 million ounces. Gold futures were down 0.6% at $1,463.60 an ounce in early trading. Longer term, Newmont expects attributable gold production of between 6.5 million to 7.0 million ounces through 2024.

Newmont (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) (Newmont or the Company) today announced its Board of Directors has unanimously approved the authorization of a stock repurchase program for up to $1 billion of common equity to be completed in the next 12 months.1 The program will be executed at the Company’s discretion, utilizing open market repurchases to occur from time-to-time throughout the authorization period.

Newmont (NYSE: NEM, TSX: NGT) (Newmont or the Company) today announced it has entered into a contractual arrangement to support Zijin Mining Group’s bid to acquire Continental Gold Inc. (Continental) by selling its 19.9 percent equity stake and its convertible bond for $260 million.

(Bloomberg) -- Zijin Mining Group Co. agreed to buy Continental Gold Inc. in a deal worth C$1.37 billion ($1 billion), marking the second takeover in as many weeks of a Canadian gold miner.Zijin will pay C$5.50 a share in cash for Continental and said major shareholder Newmont Goldcorp Corp. was supportive, according to a statement on Monday. The offer reflects a 29% premium to the share price from the past 20 days.The company, China’s biggest listed producer of mined gold, has been making deals across the world in recent years as it looks to bolster its exposure to gold and copper. The acquisition would give Zijin control of the Buritica gold project in Colombia, which is currently being developed. Output at Zijin Mountain, China’s top gold mine which the producer is named for, is dropping because of depleting resources. The deal comes just a week after Canada’s Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. agreed to buy Detour Gold Corp. for $3.7 billion, furthering an M&A spree that’s swept the gold mining industry.There’s been constant speculation about gold mining acquisitions after huge deals rocked the industry in the last year: Newmont Mining Corp.’s acquisition of Goldcorp Inc. and Barrick Gold Corp.’s takeover of Randgold Resources Ltd. The two combinations created companies that dwarf the rest of the industry and mean that smaller miners feel the need to consolidate if they’re going to stay relevant to shareholders.To contact the reporter on this story: Thomas Biesheuvel in London at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Thomasson at email@example.com, Liezel HillFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
