The final terms of the Offering will be determined by First Majestic and the initial purchasers. The Notes will bear cash interest semi-annually at a fixed rate and be convertible by holders into First Majestic common shares (the "Shares"). The Notes will be redeemable by First Majestic at its option in certain circumstances. Holders will have the right to require First Majestic to repurchase their Notes upon the occurrence of certain events.

The Notes and the Shares may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Securities Act or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in Canada except pursuant to exemptions from the prospectus requirements of applicable Canadian provincial and territorial securities laws.
