Creating the World's Premier Silver Mining Company
On November 14, 2018, Pan American Silver and Tahoe Resources Inc. announced that they had entered into a definitive agreement for Pan American to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Tahoe pursuant to a plan of arrangement.
Pan American Silver views the acquisition of Tahoe as a logical and consistent step in advancing our vision to be the largest, low-cost primary producer of silver in the world. The transaction would result in the following benefits for Pan American Silver shareholders:
- World class primary silver asset portfolio with the largest silver reserve base
- An industry leader in high margin/low cost production
- Robust growth profile
- Strong financial position
- Largest publicly-traded silver mining company by free float
