On March 23, 2023, the Mexican Federal Economic Competition Commission approved the Arrangement. All required regulatory, shareholder and court approvals, including the final court order, have now been received and the Arrangement is anticipated to be completed on or about March 31, 2023.

In addition, Pan American has declared a cash dividend of $0.10 per common share, payable on or about May 12, 2023, to holders of record of Pan American's common shares as of the close of markets on April 14, 2023. The dividends are eligible dividends for Canadian income tax purposes.

Pan American has selected this record and payment date to harmonize its dividend with respect to the first quarter of 2023 with Yamana's normal course dividend timing for payment of a first quarter dividend. Subsequent dividends to be declared by Pan American are expected to follow Pan American's previous schedule of dividend payments.
