("Silver Wheaton" or the "Company") (NYSE : SLW ). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his investor relations coordinator Eitan Kimelman at email@example.com or 212-697-6484.

On July 7, 2015, the Company announced that it received a proposal letter dated July 6, 2015 from the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") in which the CRA is proposing to reassess Silver Wheaton under various rules contained in the Income Tax Act (Canada). Silver Wheaton stated that "The Proposal outlines CRA's position that the transfer pricing provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada) relating to income earned by our foreign subsidiaries outside of Canada should apply such that the income of Silver Wheaton subject to tax in Canada should be increased for the 2005 to 2010 taxation years (the "Relevant Taxation Years") by approximately Cdn$715 million (US$567 million). The issuance of the Proposal does not require the Company to pay any amount to the CRA at this time.
Management believes that the Company has filed its tax returns and paid applicable taxes in compliance with Canadian tax law. Silver Wheaton intends to vigorously defend its tax filing positions and is now in the process of preparing its response to the Proposal."
