InvestorIntelReport: M&A season starts as it’s ‘back-to-school’ for the bankers

| September 08, 2014 | No Comments

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWorking on a piece for InvestorIntel inspired by the “silent ones” with an eye towards the increasing M&A movement in the equities market that we are witnessing. As many of us know, sometimes our best efforts in life do not come easy – and it seems that this InvestorIntelReport today may make this point simply through the member updates listed below. InvestorIntelReport was placed on hiatus this summer due to business development, as we have been working on expanding some of the unique attributes of our content and business model in preparation for Fall. All members will receive 2 free months extension — and that’s just the beginning…;-)

Speaking of the “silent ones” – NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSXV: NXE) joined InvestorIntel just as they released their August 26th results from their summer 2014 drilling program from their Rook I property, perfectly located in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan — NXE moved +75.86% in August. By releasing “exceptionally strong mineralization” results, Peter Epstein seems to have identified public market perception with his article: The Next Big Takeout in Athabasca? as it was the #1 most read article last week on InvestorIntel. Congratulations NexGen and Mr. Epstein…

I missed Daniel Kaute’s call on Friday while on another line, which indeed frustrated me – hard to reach due to some impressively big news with Environmental Waste International (“EWS”, TSXV: EWS) signing an LOI with A.C. Simmonds. Apparently A.C. Simmonds (“ACS”, OTCQX: ACSX), which is focused on technologies that work towards environmental sustainability solutions – appreciates that EWS offers a way to reuse tires. The terms catapulted the TSXV: EWS stock by +100% last week, and under the terms of the proposed acquisition, “ACS will issue to the shareholders of EWS one ACSX Share for every 40 EWS Shares.” Now here’s the even better news, the proposed acquisition is “premised on a deemed acquisition price of $0.25 per EWS Share and a deemed issued price of $10 per ACSX Share, which represents an aggregate purchase price for the EWS Shares currently outstanding of $31,379,532.” EWS closed at C$0.12 on Friday, so congratulations Daniel and team – as all indicators say this will be a great year for you!

There is a lot of news to highlight and discuss as I catch up with a combination August and ‘back-to school’ (first week of September) edition. Starting with the average for the month of August 2014 and listed in order of percentage increase:

August 2014: (1) Uranium & Nuclear Energy +18.59%, (2) Oil & Gas +11.66%, (3) Biotech +8.61%, (4) Graphite & Graphene +7.57%, (5) Agribusiness +7.34%, (6) Gold, Base & Precious Metals -4.93%, (7) Rare Earths & Technology Metals -2.49% and (8) Cleantech -14.72%

Comparatively, with the 1st week of September:

September 1-5, 2014: (1) Cleantech +29.98%, (2) Agribusiness +7.34%, (3) Uranium & Nuclear Energy -.08%, (4) Graphite & Graphene -0.29%, (5) Rare Earths & Technology Metals -1.06%, (6) Gold, Base & Precious Metals -5.33%, (7) Biotech -5.48% and (8) Oil & Gas -6.30%

For starters, Cleantech flipped from last to first post-Labor Day…Gold, Base & Precious Metals stayed the same, and for all of the ‘hype’ I was told there was in graphite & graphene: it looks like we have a multiple stealth plays in Agribusiness, and an energy driver in Uranium?

So here’s your August highlights, and moving forward I intend on “tweeting” them to you. Afterall, more of us are speaking in social media lingo and with this format you can copy and paste the companies you are a shareholder in, are cheering for (full stories, analyst coverage and news highlights linked) — or are just considering….
