Oreninc Index Falls to Reality

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index returned to reality for the week ending February 19, 2015. Total dollars announced dropped to $38.2m, a two-week low. Two brokered and bought deal financings were announced for $21m, six- and two-week low respectively.

 

 

 

Deal-making for the week continued, albeit on a lower level, with Timmins Gold Corp.’s (TSX:TMM) acquisition of Newstrike Capital Inc. (TSX-V:NES) in an all-stock deal worth $140m. The deal will create a Mexican-focused gold producer, with Timmins shareholders owning around 63% of the company post-deal and Newstrike owning the remaining 37%. Gold prices for the week crashed below $1,200 for the first time since the beginning of the year.

 

 

 

It’s never great to see such depressed numbers after a week as strong as last, though the fact that it came in a holiday-shortened week makes it easier to swallow. We’ll see if the PDAC has any lifting effect as companies try to build excitement leading into the annual meeting of the industry.

 

 

 

  

 

Summary:

 

  • Number of financings decreased to 16, a four-week low.
  • Two brokered financings were announced for $21m, a six-week low.
  • Two bought deal financings were announced for $21m, a two-week low.
