Yamana Gold Closes $500 Million Senior Notes Offering

Paul, Weiss client Yamana Gold Inc. closed an offering of $500 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.950% senior notes due 2024. The offering was made pursuant to exemptions from registration under Rule 144A and Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933. Yamana is a TSX- and NYSE-listed Canadian-based gold producer with significant gold production, gold development stage properties, exploration properties and land positions throughout the Americas including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Canada.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC, Barclays Capital Inc. and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC acted as joint bookrunning managers for the offering.
