4 Tempting Takeover Targets for Richmont Mines Inc. (TSE:RIC)

    Richmont Mines CEO Renaud Adams mentioned a growth strategy at the Mines and Money Americas conference but didn’t provide details

    SmallCapPower | September 29, 2016: In Q2, before May 27, 2016, Richmont Mines Inc. (TSE:RIC) had profitable operations, enough cash to pay off all its current liabilities and then some, yet still went to the market to raise an additional $27 million in a bought deal that sold 2.6 million shares at $10.40 per share. This deal brought Richmont Mines’ cash account to $95 million as of June 30, 2016, a very healthy 10-1 cash to long-term debt ratio. On September 27, 2016, at the Mines and Money Americas conference, Richmont CEO Renaud Adams, in a 10-minute mining spotlight, described his company’s projects as well as its expanded exploration area. As well, he hinted that he had a growth strategy but didn’t provide details. Today we have identified some gold juniors that could be a good fit for Richmont Mines, all of which have market caps of less than $50 million with operations in Quebec and/or Ontario, in close proximity (relatively) to Richmont’s existing operations.
