Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM) (NYSE: AEM) (" Agnico Eagle ") is pleased to announce that Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (" ISS "), a leading independent proxy advisory firm, has recommended that Agnico Eagle shareholders vote " FOR " regarding the matters to be voted on at the special meetings of shareholders in connection with the previously announced merger of equals (the " Merger ") with Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX:KL, NYSE:KL, ASX:KLA) (" Kirkland Lake Gold ").

Recommendation to Agnico Eagle Shareholders

In recommending that shareholders of Agnico Eagle vote " FOR " the issuance of Agnico Eagle common shares to shareholders of Kirkland Lake Gold pursuant to the Merger, ISS stated, among other things:

  • "There appears to be sound strategic rationale for a combination between the companies, with the transaction anticipated to confer operational synergies on an annual basis, as well as a number of G&A synergies and strategic optimizations over five- and ten-year time horizons. The addition of members of the [Kirkland Lake Gold] board and management to the combined company should expand the expertise necessary to drive improvements and realize some of the expected synergies under the transaction. Finally, as the majority of the production and reserves of the combined company are located in Canada where both companies have a healthy track record of operations, some of the risks inherent to the achievement of synergies are partially mitigated."

Values for the precious metal have failed to regain January’s momentum. Despite brief efforts in May and November, the gold price has struggled to stay above the US$1,800 per ounce mark.

For most of 2021, the yellow metal has battled a strengthening US dollar and gains in 10 year treasury yields. Investor risk appetite has also impeded growth for the safe haven asset.
