Expert Comments:

Chris Thompson, Raymond James (2/9/16)
"We are maintaining our target price of CA$15.25 on Tahoe Resources Inc. following the announcement of the company's proposed all share purchase of Lake Shore Gold. . .upside for shareholders is offered by growth from both companies, high-margin cash flow from Tahoe and North American production from Lake Shore. . .the addition of Lake Shore's asset base should be welcomed."

Barry Allan, Mackie Research Capital (2/8/16)
"Lake Shore Gold and Tahoe Resources Inc. have agreed to merge. . .at first glance, the marriage of Tahoe and Lake Shore may not be immediately obvious, but if shareholders think in terms of a low-risk operating asset in a stable country, Lake Shore is a no-fuss, hassle-free operating asset generating good levels of operating cash flow—excellent political insulation for Tahoe shareholders. . .we think Tahoe's management has shown astute market timing."

Geordie Mark, Haywood Securities (2/8/16)
"Tahoe Resources Inc. announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Lake Shore Gold for consideration of 0.1467 shares for every Lake Shore share, representing an implied equity value of CA$945M. . .the transaction is anticipated to close in April 2016. . .the Lake Shore Gold acquisition would seem perfectly timed as the target's operations have matured to deliver lower-cost production that would augment Tahoe's production base. Completion of the acquisition would add jurisdictional and asset diversification, leading to an overall lower risk profile."

Chris Thompson, Raymond James (2/8/16)
"Tahoe Resources Inc. announced it has entered into a definite agreement to acquire all the issued and outstanding common shares of Lake Shore Gold for CA$945M in Tahoe shares. Lake Shore owns and operates the Bell Creek and Timmins West underground gold mines in Timmins, Ontario, Canada. . .the acquisition of Lake Shore (if successful) adds a large high-grade (reserve grade: 4.4 g/t, 1.14 Moz), geopolitically friendly (Canada) asset with exploration and development upside. . .which is a key ingredient the company looks for in making acquisitions."

"Tahoe Resources Inc. just released its 2016 production and cost guidance. I didn't see major issues there. I think at Shahuindo it was planning a 10 Ktpd plant versus a 30 Ktpd version, but in this environment, a company is probably better off risking less capital until it knows the conditions. Tahoe has actually underperformed year-to-date compared to its peers, but this is a company that is not going bankrupt and is run by good people who own a lot of stock. I think the stock is probably a reasonable Buy at this level. The worst thing would be silver prices continued to drop, but if gold goes up, silver should follow that. . .there are some more engineering studies going on. The bigger deal will just be continuing to operate and not have any big hiccups. The guidance may be overly conservative. It's hard to say. But Tahoe's management team has a lot of experience and has maneuvered a lot of markets before, so we're sticking with that one." read more >

"Our thesis remains unchanged, that being Tahoe Resources Inc. ranks as a premier low-cost precious metals producer that offers fully funded organic growth and current FCF generation, reflective of our OP2 rating."
