Oreninc Index Falls Even Further

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index fell further to an overall five-week low for the week ending September 18, 2014. Total dollars fell were at $58.5m, a two-week high. Four brokered deals were announced for $8.7m, a two-week high. No bought deals were announced for the seventh time since the beginning of summer. The most shocking aspect of September so far has been the abysmal broker activity; it appears that bankers have stayed on the links to get in a couple rounds before the leaves turn.

 

 

 

Deals were light this week, as there were no big announcements from any majors. Juniors had some minor announcements, with Pacific Ridge Exploration (TSX-V:PEX) entering into an option agreement with Centerra Gold (TSX:CG) for their King Solomon Gold project in Nevada.

 

 

 

It is still early, and the poor performance of the past few weeks may be a result of a slightly stronger than anticipated July. Still, with the industry now in its third year of a down-turn, the chances that fundraising performance in the space will be improved in any significant way over last year is getting slimmer and slimmer with each passing week.

 

 

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Deals announced fell to 31, a two-week low.
  • Four brokered deals were announced for $8.7m, a two-week high.
  • No bought deals were announced, tied for a three-week low.
  • Total dollars fell to $58.5m, a two-week low.
  • Average deal size crashed to $1.9m, a two-week low.
