SilverCrest Metals Inc. ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has approved amendments to the Company's new Equity Share Unit Plan (the "SU Plan") and its existing Stock Option Plan ("Option Plan") further to comments on the SU Plan received from an independent proxy advisory firm in order to align these two stock incentive plans with leading governance practices. The SU Plan, as amended, is subject to shareholder approval which is being sought at the Company's annual general meeting to be held on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 . The amendments to the Option Plan do not require shareholder approval.

As a result of the amendments, the Company's maximum allocations for the SU Plan and the Option Plan will now be an aggregate of 7% of the outstanding common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") from time to time, broken down as follows:

  • SU Plan – 1.5% (reduced from 4%) of the outstanding Common Shares from time to time to settle share units (including restricted share units and performance share units) and deferred share units granted under the SU Plan.
  • Option Plan – 5.5% (reduced from 10%) of the outstanding Common Shares from time to time for stock options granted under the Option Plan.

The reduced allocations of Common Shares for the SU Plan and the Option Plan are intended to reduce potential dilution to shareholders of the Company and the potential cost of these two stock incentive plans. At the same time, the Company will still, have the ability to, grant performance-based stock incentives that are aligned with evolving governance standards and the Company's transition towards precious metal production.

The amended and restated SU Plan and Option Plan are available on the Company's website https://silvercrestmetals.com/about-us/governance/ .

5 Silver Stocks that Pay Dividends (Updated 2022)

Silver is a notoriously volatile market capable of wide price swings in either direction.

However, silver is also seen by many as a safe-haven investment and a hedge against inflation. While investing in silver bullion is one popular method for gaining exposure, silver-mining companies offer another route.

Silver-mining companies with strong balance sheets and experienced management teams are able to capitalize on high silver prices and weather the storm of low silver prices. Some of the most profitable silver-mining companies are even able to offer investors dividends, which may be appealing for those who are in it for the long haul.

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Aya Gold and Silver Up on Drill Results

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,599.29 early last Friday (July 29) morning, and ultimately closed out the five day period higher at 19,692.98.

The index continued its upward trend and was on track for a monthly gain, its first in three months, on the back of better commodities prices and as data showed that the Canadian economy most likely grew above the Bank of Canada's forecast. Meanwhile, the American economy unexpectedly contracted in the second quarter, with investors expecting the US Federal Reserve to be slower to introduce rate hikes.

Looking over to commodities prices, gold rose last week on the back of a softer US dollar, trading above the US$1,750 per ounce mark again. Silver also jumped last week to trade above the US$20 per ounce level, while base metals prices increased on hopes of more infrastructure stimulus in China.
