(Reuters) - Kazakhstan-focused copper miner Central Asia Metals (CAML.L) said it would buy Bermuda-based Lynx Resources Ltd in a $402.5 million reverse-takeover deal from its owners.
The acquisition would be funded by a mix of debt and cash, Central Asian Metals said on Friday.
The zinc miner is owned by Bermuda-based fund Orion Co-Investments III L.P. and Swiss PE firm Fusion Capital AG.
The deal is expected to be both earnings- and cash-flow-per-share-accretive in the first full year, the company said.
