OceanaGold Philippines (OGPI), a subsidiary of OceanaGold, has completed its initial public offering (IPO) on the Philippines Stock Exchange, raising $106m (6.13bn pesos).

This move involved the sale of 20% of OGPI’s outstanding common shares, a requirement under the renewed Financial or Technical Assistance Agreement for its Didipio Mine operations.

The IPO was a secondary offering, with the final price set at 13.33 pesos per share, totalling 6.08bn pesos for 456 million shares.

The proceeds from the offering, after deducting fees and taxes, will be utilised for paying down OceanaGold’s debt, which stood at $160m as of 31 March 2023.

OceanaGold’s decision to list OGPI’s shares was first announced in April this year.

In January this year, OceanaGold executed a sale and purchase agreement (SPA) with Tasman Mining (Tasman), a subsidiary of Federation Mining, to acquire OceanaGold’s interest in the Blackwater project in New Zealand.
