share price declines. At IAMGOLD, we are focused on being disciplined about
our capital allocation and are well advanced on our program to reduce costs,
which allows us to maintain our dividend payout rate. Today's dividend
declaration reflects our liquidity and the confidence we have in future cash
flows for the Company."
For purposes of subsection 89(14) of the Income Tax Act, the Company
designates all dividends payable on July 12, 2013, to be eligible dividends.
