In a Nov. 22 research note, ROTH Capital Partners analyst Joe Reagor reported that Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (ASM:TSX.V; ASM:NYSE.MKT; GV6:FSE) agreed to sell its Bralorne gold project in British Columbia to Talisker Resources.
"The sale is a positive for the company as it improves its balance sheet and allows the company to refocus on its Mexico asset," highlighted Reagor. Also, the transaction should "remove some holding costs and general and administrative expenses from future expenses." The resulting cash infusion should help improve Avino's overall valuation.
According to the agreement, Reagor relayed, the total consideration for the asset will include about $6.6 million in cash, 9.9% of Talisker's outstanding shares following an announced financing, a 50% warrant coverage and a $2.5 million cash payment if and when Talisker starts commercial production at Bralorne. Reagor noted that the deal terms appear fair and in line with the value ROTH assigned the project.
ROTH has a Buy rating and a $1.25 per share price target on Avino. The stock is now trading at around $0.71 per share.[NLINSERT]
