Under the terms of the deal, Pretivm shareholders will have the option to elect to receive CDN$18.50 per Pretivm share in cash or 0.8084 Newcrest shares per Pretivm share, representing a share consideration of CDN$18.50. 

The transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022, subject to Pretivm shareholder, court and regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.
