VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO, NYSE AMERICAN: BTG, NSX: B2G) (“B2Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has implemented a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”).

The DRIP will provide B2Gold shareholders residing in Canada and the United States, subject to the Company filing a registration statement in the United States, with the opportunity to have the cash dividends declared on all or some of their common shares automatically reinvested into additional common shares of the Company (the “Reinvestment Shares”) on an ongoing basis. Participation in the DRIP is optional and will not affect shareholders’ cash dividends unless they elect to participate in the DRIP. Dividends are only payable as and when declared by the Company’s Board of Directors.

The benefits of enrolling in the DRIP include the: 

  • convenience of automatic reinvestment of dividends into Reinvestment Shares;
  • flexibility to enroll some or all common shares in the DRIP; and
  • ability to acquire Reinvestment Shares without paying any brokerage fees.

Participants in the DRIP will acquire Reinvestment Shares issued from the Company’s treasury (a “Treasury Purchase”) at a price equal to the volume weighted average price of the Company’s common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange for the five (5) consecutive trading days immediately preceding a dividend payment date, subject to a possible discount, in the Company’s sole discretion, of up to 5% (the “Average Market Price”).

Only future dividends declared after the date hereof by B2Gold will be eligible for reinvestment in the DRIP.

To participate in the DRIP, registered shareholders must deliver a properly completed enrollment form to Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the “Agent”) by no later than 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the fifth business day before a dividend record date. Beneficial shareholders who wish to participate in the DRIP should contact their financial advisor, broker, investment dealer, bank, financial institution or other intermediary through which they hold common shares to inquire about the applicable requirements, enrolment deadline and to request enrolment in the DRIP.   Due to administrative policies of The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), in order to make an election under the DRIP, beneficial shareholders that hold their common shares through a DTC participant broker, will need to either cause their broker to withdraw their shares from DTC and deposit them with the Clearing and Depository Services, Inc.; or (ii) cause their broker to register such shares directly in the name of such beneficial shareholder. Such actions would need to be completed with sufficient time to deliver elections prior to applicable deadlines as set forth in the DRIP.

The Company will be responsible for all administrative costs of the DRIP, including any brokerage commissions or the fees or other expenses of the Agent payable in connection with the acquisition of Reinvestment Shares under the DRIP. Participants are responsible for applicable brokerage commissions in connection with the sale of fractional Reinvestment Shares if they elect to terminate their participation in the DRIP. Beneficial shareholders who wish to participate in the DRIP through their financial advisor, broker, investment dealer, bank, financial institution or other intermediary should consult that intermediary to confirm what fees, if any, the nominee may charge to enroll in the DRIP on their behalf or whether the nominee’s policies might result in any costs otherwise becoming payable by the beneficial shareholder.

Participation in the DRIP does not relieve shareholders of any liability for taxes that may be payable in respect of dividends that are reinvested in Reinvestment Shares or applicable withholding tax obligations. Shareholders should consult their tax advisors concerning the tax implications of their participation in the DRIP having regard to their particular circumstances.
