A syndicate of underwriters led by Credit Suisse Securities (Canada), Inc. and CIBC World Markets Inc., purchased 7,825,000 common shares of Inmet on a bought deal basis, at a price of $44.50 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $348 million The underwriters were granted an over-allotment option, exercisable until 30 days after the closing of the offering, enabling them to purchase up to an additional 15% of the number of shares sold pursuant to the offering at a price of $44.50 per share. The net proceeds of the offering will be used primarily for the repayment of all indebtedness owed by Cobre Las Cruces S.A. under its project financing facility for the Las Cruces mine and general corporate purposes.
