Oreninc Index Comes Back Down to Earth

Coming off the heels of one of its best weeks YTD, the Oreninc Index dropped off significantly for the week ending August 15, 2013. The week was highlighted by more overall deals, but with only 25% of the total money announced. Underscoring the drop were zero bought deals and only two brokered deals announced, off from 28-week highs for both last week. On a positive note, the five-week moving average was up slightly, indicating that the market as a whole is trending in the right direction as we move out of summer.

Summary:

  • Total deals announced climbed to 35, a seven-week high.
  • Two brokered deals were announced for $10.7m, a two-week low.
  • No bought deals were announced, a five-week low.
  • Dollars announced rose to $51m, a two-week low.
  • Average deal size climbed to $1.5m, a two-week low.
