In return for the sale of its stake in ELSJV, Azimuth received 2.9 million Shares controlled directly or indirectly by Newmont. The return of these Treasury Shares necessitated their cancellation, which reduced the number of Shares issued and outstanding to 79,293,844. This cancellation resulted in a reduction of approximately 3.5% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company and, consequently, an increase of approximately 3.7% of the shareholders’ respective interests in Azimuth, including the 100% flagship Elmer property. The ELSJV was considered a secondary asset for the Company following the announcement of a gold discovery on the Elmer property in January 2020.
