Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – Ogier Cayman announced yesterday its involvement as part of an international legal team in the merger of Australian resource company, Adamus Resources Limited, with Cayman-domiciled Endeavour Mining Corporation.

"Our work on the Adamus-Endeavour merger is an excellent example of our corporate and commercial team's expertise in mergers and acquisitions, particularly in the resource sector," said Ogier Cayman partner Mr Peter Cockhill. "We have built a solid capability within this area of our practice and look forward to other similar engagements in the future."

"The dynamicism and growth of companies involved in the commodities sector, particularly gold and other precious metals, represent an area of growth in terms of M&A and structuring work," added Ogier Senior Associate Mr Bradley Kruger who worked directly with Adamus in support of the deal. "Our integrated approach and experience in this area with companies such as Adamus make Ogier ideally suited to capitalise on deal activity in the resource industry."

As a combined firm worth approximately US$600 million, Endeavour is a publicly-traded, growth-focused West African gold production and exploration company domiciled in the Cayman Islands. Following completion of the merger, shares of Endeavour were traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (symbol: EVR), in addition to its existing listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (symbol: EDV) on December 20th.
