On December 24, 2013, the Corporation entered into a definitive agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") with Sherritt International Corporation ("Sherritt") to acquire a 52.36% interest in the coal and potash royalty business of Prairie Mines & Royalty Limited ("Prairie Royalties") and Sherritt's 50% interest in Carbon Development Partnership ("CDP"). Subsequent to the announcement the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board ("OTPPB") exercised its tagalong right under the CDP partnership agreement, which requires Altius to acquire OTTPB's 50% interest in CDP on the same terms and conditions as those contained in the Arrangement Agreement. The total cash consideration to be paid for 52.36% of Prairie Royalties and 100% of CDP is $240,897,000 and $42,000,000, respectively. The ultimate amount to be paid for Prairie Royalties may be less depending on the decision of a third party with respect to a right of first refusal held by the third party for the Genesee royalty component of the portfolio. Subject to regulatory approvals and the right of first refusal on the Genesee royalty, the acquisition closing is expected to occur by April 30, 2014.
