First Majestic to List on the Mexican Stock Exchange

Frankfurt - FMV

VANCOUVER, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - First Majestic Silver Corp. (TSX:FR) (NYSE:AG) (the "Company" or "First Majestic") is pleased to announce that its common shares have been authorized for listing on the Mexican Stock Exchange ("BMV"). The Company expects the shares to begin trading on the BMV on Monday, August 25, 2014 under the trading symbol "AG". The Company will retain its primary listings on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbols "FR" and "AG", respectively.

"As one of Mexico's largest primary silver producers and mining employers, we look forward to our upcoming listing on the Mexican Stock Exchange," said Keith Neumeyer, President and CEO of the Company.  "The BMV listing will strengthen our exposure in Mexico, reaching the largest institutional investors in the country in addition to allowing retail investors to invest directly with Mexican Pesos rather than being forced to convert their home currency to US or Canadian dollars. We look forward to building a long lasting relationship with one of Latin America's largest stock exchanges."


First Majestic is a mining company focused on silver production in México and is aggressively pursuing the development of its existing mineral property assets and the pursuit through acquisition of additional mineral assets which contribute to the Company achieving its corporate growth objectives.
