Oreninc Index Holds Steady

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index rose marginally for the week ending July 31, 2014. The main positive for the week, and our only metric that actually fared better than the previous week, was the number of deals announced, 36, a four-week high. Total dollars announced fell to $62.5m, a six-week low. Eight brokered deals were announced for $36m, a six-week low; three bought deals were announced for $10m, a two-week low.

 

 

 

Deal activity was still down in the Canadian markets, as again things seemed to have slowed with the hot weather upon us. It would be surprising to see any continuous positive shift in the industry until September at the earliest, and even then there is no guarantee that things will be that much better.

 

                       

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Deals announced jumped to 36, a four-week high.
  • Eight brokered deals were announced for $36m, a six-week low.
  • Three bought deals were announced for $10m, a two-week low.
  • Total dollars fell to $62.5m, a six-week low.
  • Average deal size dropped to $1.7m, a six-week low.
