VANCOUVER, Sept. 14, 2015 /CNW/ - Silver Wheaton Corp. ("Silver Wheaton" or the "Company") (TSX:SLW) (NYSE: SLW) announces that it intends to make a normal course issuer bid (a "NCIB") to purchase up to 20,229,671 common shares of Silver Wheaton (the "Common Shares") on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE").

"Our business model has always been focused on making accretive investments and building a strong portfolio for our shareholders. Given the turbulence of current markets, we believe that Silver Wheaton's share price does not currently reflect the high quality asset base underlying the company's robust business model," said Randy Smallwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silver Wheaton. "As such, we believe that at current share price levels, Silver Wheaton shares may represent the best investment option for our shareholders. The initiation of our first ever normal course issuer bid positions us to capitalize on this opportunity."

The NCIB has been approved by the Company's board of directors; however, it is subject to acceptance by the TSX and, if accepted, will be made in accordance with the applicable rules and policies of the TSX and the NYSE, and applicable Canadian and U.S. securities laws. Under the NCIB, Common Shares may be repurchased in open market transactions on the TSX, the NYSE, and/or other Canadian or United States exchanges, or by such other means as may be permitted by the TSX and/or the NYSE and applicable Canadian and U.S. securities laws. The price that Silver Wheaton will pay for Common Shares in open market transactions will be the market price at the time of purchase.

In accordance with TSX rules, any daily purchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exception) on the TSX under the NCIB are limited to a maximum of 320,441 Common Shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX for the six months ended August 31, 2015. Daily purchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exception) on the NYSE under the NCIB are limited to 25% of the average daily trading volume for the preceding four weeks. Any Common Shares that are purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Under the NCIB, up to 20,229,671 Common Shares (representing 5% of the total outstanding Common Shares as of September 11, 2015), may be purchased on the TSX and the NYSE over a period of twelve months commencing after TSX approval.

The actual number of Common Shares which may be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the Company. Decisions regarding purchases will be based on market conditions, share price, best use of available cash, and other factors including other options to expand our portfolio of assets.

Silver Wheaton may enter into a pre-defined plan with its broker to allow for the repurchase of shares at times when Silver Wheaton ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise. Any such plans entered into with Silver Wheaton's broker will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws and the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
