RCI has a strong track record of originating and executing cross border M&A transactions with several significant deals. Most recently and as announced on June 5, 2017, RCI Capital Group acted as the financial advisor and buy side originator on behalf of IAMGOLD in the sale of a 30% undivided participating interest of its ownership of the Côté Gold Project in Ontario to Sumitomo Metal Mining Co., Ltd. for US$195 million.
In March 2018, the transaction received the PDAC`s Viola R. MacMillan Award for demonstrating leadership in management and financing for the exploration and development of mineral resources. PDAC praised the deal saying “The joint venture is a success story because it mitigates the risk of the Côté Gold project by giving IAMGOLD access to Sumitomo’s considerable financial resources and mine building and operating expertise.”
Previously, RCI acted as the sole placement agent, co‐advisor and buy side originator in a transaction where Far West Mining was acquired by Capstone Mining Corporation and Kores made a strategic investment in Capstone Mining Corporation and the Santa Domingo asset. This US$725 million landmark deal resulted in a post transaction company with a market cap of $1.7 billion.
This deal was named 2011 Canadian Dealmakers of the year in the Mining Industry and further demonstrates RCI’s capacity to originate and execute large complex multi‐party cross border M&A transactions.
RCI has acted as a catalyst shareholder behind a number of other large transactions in the energy and mining sectors. Some of our relationships and partners include the following:
RCI has invested over $140 million in non-dilutive capital in Canadian growth-oriented companies. This capital has supported the expansion strategies for small to medium enterprises.
