Oreninc Index Crashes with Only Six Deals Announced

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index crashed for the week ending January 9, 2014. The reason for the fall was the lack of announced deals, which fell all the way to six, a multi-year low. Total dollars announced and average deal size both increased to $31.6m and $5.2m, respectively. With average deal size remaining strong, total dollars announced actually increasing, and a $150m dollar announcement that does not count towards the Index taking place, it is not all doom and gloom despite this week’s poor statistical performance. Even if we are still mildly cautious after a lackluster three weeks, expect a jump next week as we head into conference season.

 

                       

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Deals announced fell to six, a multi-year low.
  • One brokered deals was announced for $0.5m, a one-week high.
  • No bought deals were announced, a one-week low.
  • Total dollars announced rose to $31.6m, a two-week high.
  • Average deal size increased to $5.2m, an eight-week high.

  • Highland Copper Company Inc. (TSX-V:HI) opened a $25 million offering on a best efforts basis.
