Gold Fields Limited (NYSE:GFI) shares dropped more than 16% since the company’s announced a merger with Yamana Gold Inc. (NYSE:AUY), which rose in price by around 13% since the announcement.
The merger will be through an all-share offer of 0.6 Gold Fields shares for each Yamana share, which valued the company at 6.7 billion at the time of the release – a 33.8% premium to the 10-day volume-weighted average price or an implied price of $6.94/share.
