The Company may from time to time seek to retire or purchase for cash its outstanding debt securities in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. Such repurchases, if any, will depend on prevailing market conditions, our liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions and other factors. The amounts involved may be material.
Re-investment requirement under the bond indenture :
Cash proceeds from asset sales must be re-invested in the Company’s business within one year of the closing date of the transaction. This window of investment can be extended an additional six months contingent upon firm capital commitments. A balance of less than $ 50M can be kept. By definition, the amount of re-investment can include planned capital spending or capital applied to mergers and acquisitions. Should the re-investment requirements not be met within the timeframe specified above, IAMGOLD is required to buy back bonds at par in an amount equal to the remaining balance of the proceeds not yet re-invested in the business.
