TORONTO, ON—(Marketwired – June 09, 2017) – Kinross Gold Corporation (TSX: K) (NYSE: KGC) completed today the sale of its 25% interest in the Cerro Casale project in Chile, and its 100% interest in the Quebrada Seca exploration project located adjacent to Cerro Casale, to Goldcorp Inc.

The consideration for the sale includes: US$260 million in cash which was paid at closing (and which included US$20 million for Quebrada Seca); a contingent payment of US$40 million in cash, payable following a positive construction decision for Cerro Casale; Goldcorp assuming a US$20 million contingent payment obligation due to Barrick Gold Corporation under the existing Cerro Casale shareholders agreement, which is payable when commercial production at Cerro Casale commences; and a 1.25% royalty from Goldcorp based on 25% of gross revenues from all metals sold at Cerro Casale and Quebrada Seca, with Kinross foregoing the first US$10 million.

Additionally, Kinross entered into the previously announced water supply agreement with the Cerro Casale joint venture.

Kinross expects to use the proceeds from the sale for its organic development projects and to further strengthen its balance sheet.

Gendis Inc. Announces First Quarter Earnings

WINNIPEG, MB—(Marketwired – June 09, 2017) – Gendis Inc. (TSX: GDS) today announced its financial results for the 1st quarter ended April 30, 2017.

Net earnings for the 1st quarter were $3,935,000 ($0.31 per share) compared to net earnings of $1,136,000 ($0.09 per share) for the prior year 1st quarter. Revenue for the 1st quarter was $1,695,000 compared to $1,227,000 for the prior year 1st quarter. Revenue less expense for the 1st quarter was $489,000 compared to $255,000 for the prior year 1st quarter. The increase is primarily due to new tenancy in the Company's Sony place Facility.

The volatility in net earnings quarter over quarter is primarily due to the change in fair value of security investments and investment properties with the attendant effect on deferred income taxes.

On May 1, 2017, Pembina Pipeline announced an offer to acquire Veresen. The closing date is expected to occur in the 3rd or 4th quarter of this year. It is anticipated that the transaction will settle on a pro–rata share and cash exchange basis, providing Gendis with approximately $9.6 million in cash and 0.6 million Pembina pipeline shares. These shares would have a fair value of approximately $28 million as at June 8, 2017. Pembina Pipeline owns and operates conventional, heavy oil and oil sands pipelines, natural gas gathering and processing facilities and other infrastructure assets. The transaction is subject to regulatory and shareholder approval.

Redwood Asset Management Inc. Announces Intention to Terminate the Redwood Global Small Cap Fund and Redwood Diversified Equity Fund

TORONTO, ON—(Marketwired – June 09, 2017) – Redwood Asset Management Inc. (“Redwood“), in its capacity as manager, announced today its intention to terminate the Redwood Global Small Cap Fund and the Redwood Diversified Equity Fund (the “Funds“) on or about August 8, 2017. Effective June 9, 2017, the Funds will be closed to new purchases, including in respect of any pre–authorized purchase plans.

The decision to close the Funds was driven by their relatively low asset sizes and the costs associated with maintaining funds of this size. Such factors have made it difficult to efficiently manage the Funds in accordance with their intended investment objectives and, in the view of Redwood, closing the Funds is in the best interests of shareholders.

As of today's date, the Funds may begin liquidating their portfolio investments and may no longer be fully invested in accordance with the stated investment objectives outlined in the Simplified Prospectuses.

Existing shareholders of the Funds have the option to redeem their investments at net asset value on or prior to the termination date. All shares not redeemed prior to the Funds' closure will be automatically redeemed at that time.

If required, a final distribution for each of the Funds will occur on or before the termination date.

In accordance with securities legislation, a notice describing details of the Funds' termination will be sent to shareholders of the Funds no less than 60 days prior to the effective date of termination. Existing shareholders of the Funds have the option to redeem their investments on or prior to the termination date.

Redwood encourages all shareholders to consult with their financial advisors to discuss the financial and tax implications of the terminations and to determine the best course of action based on their personal investment needs and circumstances.

Rethink Your Drink This Summer

MISSION, KS—(Marketwired – Jun 9, 2017) – (Family Features) From barbecues and birthdays to concerts and cookouts, summertime is the perfect time of year to bring everyone together. However, nice weather and outdoor events are also coupled with summer heat waves and high temperatures.

Water — whether plain or sparkling — is a great way to help you stay hydrated all summer long without the calories and added sugar of other summer favorites like lemonade or punch. Healthy hydration in the summertime starts when you rethink your drink so you can beat the heat.

To get started, these tips from Sarah Ladden, M.S., R.D., nutrition, health and wellness director at Nestlé Waters North America, can help keep you hydrated all summer long.

  • Pack for the heat. The summer heat can mean an increase in water loss, which can put you at a higher risk for dehydration especially if you're outside for long periods of time. Make sure to pack water for all your summer outings and hydrate before, during and after all outdoor activities.
  • Add your own flavor. While bottled, filtered or tap water are all good choices for healthy hydration, some people simply prefer flavored beverages. The good news: it's easy to customize water just the way you like it. This summer, wow your friends with a DIY sparkling water bar. Set out your favorite sparkling waters — include flavored waters for added fun — alongside an assortment of seasonal berries, sliced fruit and fresh herbs, and let guests create their personalized refreshments.
  • Make water fun. Jazz up a glass of your favorite water with a simple addition — decorative ice. Before filling your ice tray, add a few berries or cubed melon, fresh herbs like mint or rosemary then top with water and freeze. Add a few cubes to a refreshing glass of water and enjoy just a hint of subtle flavor. 
  • Keep water close. It's important to keep your body well–hydrated throughout the day, but it is easy to get busy and simply forget to drink. Keep water in convenient locations throughout your home, office or even in the car for a visual reminder to keep sipping. Stocking water at the front of your fridge is another good habit so it's the first choice kids or other family members see.

This summer, rethink your drink with these tips to help make smart beverage choices. To learn more about healthy hydration, visit nestle–watersna.com.
