Mining M&A Quarterly Newsletter - First Quarter 2013 

This quarterly publication presents a current snapshot of the M&A market, providing a review of select key transactions while focusing on the rationale behind those deals as trends take shape. It highlights Canadian transactions, but set in the context of global M&A deals and trends.

Mining companies found it hard to stop the bleeding in share prices through the first quarter of 2013, as equity indices fell roughly 10% farther than the prices of gold and copper. These key commodities both dropped 5%, preceding the price rout that shocked everyone in early April. In Canada, M&A activity shrank back toward levels experienced in the middle of 2012. Global M&A activity maintained the same diminished levels it has now experienced for four successive quarters.
