Why I am going to elect for shares and not cash.

Newcrest Mining To Acquire Pretium Resources: A Good Deal For Newcrest

Summary

  • Newcrest Mining will acquire Pretium Resources for $2.81 billion in cash and shares.
  • Pretium's shareholders may elect between C$18.5 ($14.86) in cash and 0.8084 Newcrest shares per 1 share of Pretium.
  • The deal attributes to Pretium a price-to-operating cash flow ratio of 9.15.
  • Newcrest is about to pay $720/toz of gold contained in reserves, or $273/toz of gold contained in resources.
  • The abovementioned price isn't bad, but it doesn't attribute any value to the huge exploration potential.

Conclusion

The deal values the Brucejack mine in its current shape reasonably. Newcrest attributes to Pretium price-to-operating cash flow ratio of approximately 9.15. It is willing to pay $720/toz of gold contained in reserves, or $273/toz of gold contained in resources. However, the recent drill results clearly confirm that there lies much more than only Valley of the Kings deposit under the large land package. Golden Marmot seems to be something similar to Valley of the Kings and numerous other exploration targets have been identified. Newcrest is about to get the huge exploration potential almost for free. This is why I believe that the deal is more favorable for Newcrest than for Pretium.

I have changed the name of this thread as Pretium Resources is no more, having been bought by Newcrest Mining.

I chose to have 90% of my holding converted and 10% cash.
