Oreninc Index Five-Week Average Falls to Lowest Level YTD

The Oreninc Index five-week moving average fell to its lowest level YTD for the week ending July 11, 2013. Two brokered deals were announced for the week, only one of which was a bought deal.  This level is most likely a product of the normal mid-summer lull, as well as the market’s current stagnation. With mid-summer approaching and many summer exploration projects still underway, there is no reason to believe the Index will improve significantly over the next couple of weeks.

Summary:

  • Total deals announced rose to 18.
  • Two brokered deals were announced for $20 million, a five-week high.
  • One bought deal was announced for $10 million, a two-week low.
  • Total dollars announced fell to $41.5 million, a three-week low.
  • Average deal size climbed to $2.3 million, a one-week high.

  • Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX-V:NEE) opened a $15 million offering underwritten by a syndicate led by Paradigm Capital Inc. on a best efforts basis.  The deal is expected to close on or about August 13, 2013.
  • Argex Titanium Inc. (TSX-V:RGX) opened a $10 million offering on a strategic deal basis.    The deal is expected to close in or about early August.
  • Roxgold Inc. (TSX-V:ROG) opened a $10 million offering underwritten by a syndicate led by Cormark Securities on a bought deal basis.  The deal is expected to close on or about August 1, 2013.
