Message: Timmins is the Better Deal
- Don't Let Gammon and the Capital Gold Board Postpone or Adjourn the Capital Gold Shareholders Meeting
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Timmins Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TMM) On March 15, 2011, Timmins announced that it had delivered an increased offer to the Capital Gold Board of Directors for the merger of Timmins Gold and Capital Gold. Under the increased offer, Capital Gold shareholders will now receive 2.27 Timmins Gold common shares and US$0.25 in cash for each share of Capital Gold common stock.
The increased offer provides Capital Gold shareholders with total consideration of US$5.79 per Capital Gold share and exceeds the value of the increased Gammon offer by US$0.42 (or 7.8%) per Capital Gold share, based on closing share prices on March 16, 2011. In addition, based on the volume-weighted average of the respective share prices for the last 60 trading days, Timmins' proposal has a value of US$5.80 per Capital Gold share and exceeds the value of the increased Gammon offer by US$0.36 per Capital Gold share, or about 4.3%.
Timmins also announced that it will amend the terms of its exchange offer, which has not yet commenced, for all of the outstanding shares of Capital Gold common stock to reflect the increased offer.
NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT, TIMMINS' OFFER IS SUPERIOR
Gammon and the Capital Gold Board of Directors may seek to postpone or adjourn the Capital Gold shareholders meeting to prevent Capital Gold shareholders from voting against the Gammon deal. Don't allow Gammon and the Capital Gold Board to silence the shareholders! Capital Gold is your company, not theirs. Timmins has repeatedly raised concerns regarding the process by which the Capital Gold Board agreed to sell Capital Gold to Gammon, a process that Timmins believes favored Gammon over all other bidders. Postponing or adjourning the Capital Gold shareholders meeting would further demonstrate that the Capital Gold Board is determined to sell Capital Gold to Gammon, regardless of what Capital Gold shareholders think.
