Summary

The 2013 Canadian Public Mining Mergers & Acquisitions Deal Survey focuses on key provisions in M&A transactions in the mining industry.

This survey analyzes publicly available acquisition agreements (e.g., support agreements and arrangement agreements) for transactions announced in 2012 that involved Canadian public mining companies as targets with a transaction value in excess of C$10 million.

The core issues analyzed include:

• representations and warranties;
• current trends in “deal protection provisions,”; and
• deal conditions

The survey is a critical tool in understanding market trends and the practices and expectations of sector participants, which have a powerful influence on the negotiation of M&A transactions.  If you would like further information, please contact any member of our Mining and Natural Resources Law Group.
