Underwriters Exercise Over-Allotment Option

Jan 6. 2011


VANCOUVER, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - - Pretium Resources Inc. (Pretivm) announces that it has issued an additional 3,000,000 common shares at a price of $6.00 per share upon the exercise, in part, of the over-allotment option by the syndicate of underwriters granted in connection with Pretivm's initial public offering (Offering).

The aggregate gross proceeds of $18 million from the issuance of these shares were used to repay an equivalent principal amount owing to Silver Standard Resources Inc. (Silver Standard) under the convertible promissory note issued to Silver Standard in connection with the acquisition of the Snowfield Project and Brucejack Project (Projects). Following this issuance, Silver Standard's ownership interest in Pretivm has been reduced to 39.76% of the total issued common shares of Pretivm.

The underwriting syndicate for the Offering was led by CIBC, Citigroup Global Markets Canada Inc. and UBS Securities Canada Inc., and also includes BMO Capital Markets, Credit Suisse Securities (Canada), Inc., Dahlman Rose & Company, LLC, GMP Securities L.P. and Salman Partners Inc.

The securities offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirement of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
