Updated Cooperation Agreement and indicative timetable for the implementation of the Combination
Updated Co-operation Agreement
Mariana and Sandstorm have today entered into a Co-operation Agreement to work together to implement the Combination announced on 26 April 2017 ("Revised Co-operation Agreement"). The Co-operation Agreement executed on 26 April 2017 and referenced at section 18.1 of Mariana's announcement of 26 April 2017 regarding the Combination has been terminated.
In all material respects the Revised Co-operation Agreement is consistent with the 26 April 2017 Co-operation Agreement.
Indicative timetable for the implementation of the Combination
It is presently anticipated that Mariana will send its Scheme Document to Mariana Shareholders and (for information only) to principles in the Mariana Employee Equity Plans and holders of Mariana Warrants around mid-May, that both of the Guernsey Court Meeting and General Meeting of Mariana shareholders required to approve the Combination will be held around mid-June and that, provided the Combination is approved by Mariana Shareholders, the Guernsey Court should sanction the Combination in late June, subject to Court availability.
This timetable is indicative only, remains subject to change and will depend upon, among other things, the dates upon which the conditions to the Combination are satisfied or, where applicable, waived. A more detailed timetable will be included within the Scheme Document, and any changes to the timetable will be announced through a Regulatory Information Service.
Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement have the meanings set out in the announcement of the Combination on 26 April 2017.
