Centerra Gold Inc. announced that at the company’s special meeting of shareholders held on July 25, an overwhelming majority of Centerra shareholders voted in favor of the resolution approving the proposed plan of arrangement, which will give effect to certain aspects of the transactions contemplated by the previously announced global arrangement agreement entered into by, among others, Centerra, Kyrgyzaltyn JSC and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic. Official website of the company says.

Voting results for the resolution are as follows: 96.83 percent of shareholders voted for and 3.17 percent voted against it.

According to the document, the Cabinet received the right of full management and ownership of the mine.
