Oreninc Index Stagnates for Fourth Straight Week

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index remained stagnant for the fourth straight week for the week ending April 17, 2014. The five-week moving average fell to its lowest level since Summer 2013. Total dollars announced dropped to $71m, a two-week low. Five brokered deals were announced for $32.1m, also a two-week low; one bought deal was announced for $8m, a four-week low. While it certainly could be worse, the Index remaining at this relatively low level for an extended period of time is concerning. Let’s hope that this does not mean investors—and with them, juniors’ ability to raise cash—have started summer hibernation early.

 

 

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Deals announced rose to 27, a two-week high.
  • Five brokered deals were announced for $32.1m, a two-week low.
  • One bought deal was announced for $8m, a four-week low.
  • Total dollars announced fell to $71m, a two-week low.
  • Average deal size dropped to $2.6m, a two-week low.
