The number of Goldcorp shares to be issued under the Arrangement will be approximately 21.6 million based on the issued and outstanding shares of Kaminak as of the announcement date, but will be subject to adjustment depending on the number of Kaminak options that may be exercised prior to the completion of the Arrangement.
