Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation Research Report
Another company entering a definitive agreement is Coeur, looking to acquire rival company Orko Silver Corp. Under the agreement, the company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Orko in a transaction with a total value of approximately CAD$350 million. The transaction is expected to be completed in April. Orko's La Preciosa silver project in Mexico is its key asset, and is also one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world. The silver asset is expected to add a large-scale development opportunity with significant exploration upside to Coeur's portfolio. The merger with Orko will also deliver enhanced asset and geographic portfolio diversification and strong growth prospects. In 2012, the company reported strong operating cash flow and record gold production, expecting to continue in 2013, with anticipated production of 18 to 19.6 million ounces of silver and 250,000 to 265,000 ounces of gold.

Refusing to match Coeur's offer, First Majestic withdrew; and Orko had to pay the company CAD$11.6 million termination fee. In 2012, silver output was 20 percent higher than 2011, and First Majestic expects this year's output to rise nearly 40 percent higher than the previous year, expecting to produce the equivalent of between 12.3 million and 13 million ounces, including other metals mined as a byproduct.
