"Klondex Mines Ltd. announced in mid-March that Hecla Mining would acquire it in a mix of cash and Hecla common stock. The deal is valued at $462M; Klondex shareholders will receive $2.47/share, consisting of either cash or shares of Hecla."

Don Blyth, Paradigm Capital

"Klondex Mines Ltd.'s board supports Hecla's bid to acquire the company. . .based on the closing prices of both companies the day prior to the bid (March 16), the bid represents a 72% premium. . .we view this transaction as somewhat opportunistic by Hecla but a good deal for Klondex shareholders under the current circumstances."

Jamie Spratt, Clarus Securities

"Klondex Mines Ltd. announced the proposed acquisition of the company by Hecla for $2.47/share (CA$3.21), a 59% premium to the 30-day volume weighted average price. In our view, the transaction is positive for Klondex shareholders as it puts the assets in the hands of a well-funded company with a seasoned, narrow vein operating team."

Jake Sekelsky, ROTH Capital Partners

"On March 19, 2018, Klondex Mines Ltd. announced a proposed acquisition by Hecla Mining. . .based on the terms of the transaction, consideration for the company totaled $462M, or $2.47/share. . .based on Hecla's closing share price on March 19, 2018, we estimate a transaction value of $2.22/share for Klondex's Nevada assets and view the Klondex Canada spinout as additional upside for existing shareholders."
