VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- The Canadian Financing Bulletin has been a leader in tracking financing activities of Canadian capital markets in the mining, energy and technology sectors for over seven years. Our unparalleled service offers unique insight into small and micro cap stocks, as well as comprehensive comparative reports detailing the worldwide reach of Canadian companies in these sectors. With the listings of active proposed placements, investors and companies that might not otherwise receive analyst coverage are potentially brought together. As well, we offer coverage of activity in the bond market for users to be made aware of lower-risk opportunities.
In this week's report, the CFB published term sheets for 29 new proposed placements from the mining, oil/gas (termed metals and energy in the report) and technology sectors. Of those, 23 were for mining stocks and six for oil/gas stocks with the total value of new proposals reaching almost $1,139m. Four of these placements were designated a 'flow through' issuance and there were two new debenture offerings. The largest new public proposal was by Athabasca Oil Sands Corp (ATH.TO), which launched an offering consisting of $600m worth of 7.5% 5yr bonds in a placement led by TD Securities.
The CFB published term sheets for 61 placements that were closed during the week. Of these, 50 were for mining stocks, eight for oil/gas, and three for technology stocks, with the total value of these closings being almost $397m. 13 of these placements were designated 'flow through' issuances and two debenture placements closed. The largest public closing was by Kirkland Lake Gold Inc (KGI.TO) which closed an offering consisting of $69m (including $9m in an overallotment) worth of 7.5% 5yr debentures in a placement led by Dundee Securities.
