First and Last Word on Metals and Mining

TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - AuRico Gold Inc. (TSX: AUQ) (NYSE: AUQ), (“AuRico” or the “Company”) announces that following its receipt of gross proceeds of $750 million relating to the recent sale of the Ocampo mine, the Board of Directors has authorized the making of a substantial issuer bid, pursuant to which the Company will offer (the “Offer”) to purchase for cancellation up to 36,144,578 of its outstanding common shares (the “Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price not exceeding $300 million. …The Offer will proceed by way of a “modified Dutch auction”, pursuant to which AuRico shareholders may deposit all or a portion of their Shares at a price within a range of not less than $8.30 per Share and not more than $9.30 per Share (with increments of $0.05 per Share within that range). The modified Dutch auction tender process allows shareholders to individually select the price, within the specified range, at which they are willing to sell all or a portion of their Shares. When the Offer expires, AuRico will select the purchase price of the tendered Shares which will be the lowest tendered price within the range of prices, enabling the Company to purchase up to the maximum number of Shares validly tendered to the Offer. All Shares tendered at or below the selected price level will be bought at the purchase price. If the aggregate cost to purchase the tendered Shares exceeds $300 million, the Company will accept such Shares on a pro-rata basis. All Shares tendered at prices higher than the final purchase price will be returned to shareholders.…[emphasis ours]
