Oreninc Index Falls Marginally, Remains Strong

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index fell slightly, but remained strong for the week ending March 13, 2014. Total dollars announced fell to $205m, a two-week low. Brokered dollars announced fell to $161m, also a two-week low. This week stands out due to the sheer number of deals announced (47), as well as the amount of brokered deals announced (18), the latter a 68-week high. While still possibly a product of a post-PDAC fundraising binge, this type of activity in what has been a stagnant financing season is encouraging news. It will be interesting to see if this continues as we head deeper into Spring and farther away from what is historically the most active period of the financing season.

 

 

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Deals announced rose to 47, a twelve-week high.
  • Eighteen brokered deals were announced for $161m, a two-week low.
  • Five bought deals were announced for $78.1m, a two-week low.
  • Total dollars announced fell to $204.9m, a two-week low.
  • Average deal size dropped to $4.5m, a two-week low.
