The Oreninc Index crashed back down to reality for the week ending October 23, 2014. Total dollars announced dropped to $36.2m, a ten-week low. Three brokered deals were announced for $24.6m, a two-week low; two bought deals were announced for $24.1m, also a two-week low. Deals announced dropped to 16, a 41-week low.
Deals for the week were lead by Fortress Minerals Corp.’s (TSX-V:FST) purchase of Kinross Gold Corp.’s (TSX:K) Ecuadorian Fruta del Norte gold project for US$240m. Kinross took a $720m writedown on the project last year.
After a solid performance last week, it is discouraging to see such a harsh week in the financing market. However, in a climate where the only thing holding up the Index’s performance is the large rogue deal, a week without any is bound to have an impact. With each passing week it is becoming clearer that fall 2014 is unlikely to bring any market rebound.
