Oreninc Index Stutters in Final Week of August

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index fell slightly for the week ending August 29, 2013.  While the five-week moving average also dipped, it sits at the second-highest level since March.  Total number of offerings has remained high, and the last four weeks has seen more offerings announced than any other four-week period this year to date. From a broad sense, it seems that market sentiment is becoming more positive as the summer holidays wrap up.

 

 

                       

 

 

Summary:

 

  • Total deals announced dropped to 40,  the second most since June.
  • Four brokered deals were announced for $26m, a two-week low.
  • Two bought deals were announced for $25m, a two-week low.
  • Dollars announced fell to $62.5m, a two-week low.
  • Average deal size rose slightly to $1.55m, a three-week high.

 

 

Major Financing Openings:

 

  • Pretium Resources Inc. (TSX:PVG) opened a $15.15 million offering underwritten by a syndicate led by Cormark Securities Inc. on a bought deal basis. The deal is expected to close on or about September 6, 2013.
  • Uranerz Energy Corporation (TSX:URZ) opened a $10.5 million offering underwritten by a syndicate led by Haywood Securities on a bought deal basis. Each unit includes a 1/2 warrant that expires in 30 months. The deal is expected to close on or about September 6, 2013.
