Mergers and Acquisitions in the Mining Sector – Not From A Banker’s Perspective

As CEO of a $2.5 billion dollar mining company John McCluskey is actively involved in Mergers and Acquisitions. Since 2014, he has lead over $2 Billion in acquisitions and divestitures. He has learned a good deal along the way, including: what works and why it works; what does not and why it fails. There is conflict of interest between investors, and often between investors and the companies in which they are invested. Rarely does everyone feel that a transaction works for everyone concerned.

What does a strong CEO look for when considering an M&A transaction? What are the risks versus the opportunities? What transactions were successful? Which transactions succeeded when it appeared initially that they had failed? And where have certain deals failed when it appeared that they were successful? These are some of the questions that John will try to address at our next presentation. These insights will provide a better understanding of the importance of M&A in the mining sector and why it is vital that the Canadian mining sector pursues successful, accretive M&A strategies.

John McCluskey has been the President and Chief Executive Officer of Alamos Gold Inc. since 2003. Mr. McCluskey began his career with Glamis Gold Ltd. In 1996 he founded Grayd Resource Corporation, where he was CEO until 2003 and co-founded Alamos with mining hall of famer Chester Millar. Mr. McCluskey was named Ontario’s 2012 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year, based on a judging panel’s assessment of financial performance, vision, leadership, innovation, personal integrity and influence, social responsibility, and entrepreneurial spirit. Today, Alamos is an established intermediate gold producer with four operating mines in North America and a portfolio of development stage projects in Turkey, Mexico, Canada and the United States.
