* Gold Wheaton shareholders can get cash, stock or both
* Says deal value to remain at C$830 mln
Jan 6 (Reuters) - Gold Wheaton Gold Corp GLW.TO and its suitor Franco-Nevada Corp (FNV.TO) amended the terms of the takeover deal, giving Gold Wheaton shareholders an option to get either cash or stock or both.
In December, Franco-Nevada, a Canadian gold royalty company, said it would buy competitor Gold Wheaton in a cash-and-share deal worth C$830 million. [ID:nN13196905]
The amended arrangement agreement provides Gold Wheaton shareholders an option to get either a cash payment of C$5.20 or 0.1556 common shares of Franco-Nevada for each share.
On Dec. 13, Franco-Nevada — which will nearly double its exposure to the platinum group metals with the deal — said the payment will be 40 percent in cash, or C$2.08 per share, and 60 percent in shares, or 0.0934 of a Franco-Nevada share.
The amended agreement also provides a similar option to Gold Wheaton warrant holders at the time of exercise.
The previous agreement provided that outstanding Gold Wheaton warrants would become exercisable into C$5.20 of consideration.
Gold Wheaton shares, which have gained 14 percent since the deal was announced in December, closed at C$4.99 on Wednesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Those of Franco-Nevada, which have lost about 5 percent since the deal was announced, closed at C$31.90.
