  • What is "Red Cloud Mining Capital?"

    Red Cloud is a 'new concept' business and capital markets advisory firm for select high-growth mining companies.

    Working closely with management, we use our unparalleled global network of capital markets specialists and our extensive experience in the many facets of the business of mining to provide cost-effective value-added solutions, including strategic advisory;

    Investor relations and marketing;

    Financing advisory, focused on non-traditional financing alternatives;

    M&A advisory and asset searches, among a plethora of other capital markets related services. For our clients, we serve as the gateway to capital markets in Canada, the US and globally.

  • Are you an investment broker or exempt market dealer (EMD)?

    By design, we are neither a broker, nor EMD.

    Instead of competing with the many investment brokers and EMDs across North America, we choose instead to provide service to both our mining company clients AND the institutions.

    On one hand, we help the institutions by pre-screening each mining company we choose to work with, so the brokers trust that when we introduce your story to their bankers, analysts and institutional sales teams the investment opportunity is of the highest quality with exceptional potential for value appreciation.

    On the other hand, we help you by constantly keeping track of which top tier firms have an appetite for your type of mining story. Then by leveraging our relationships we are able to bring you to the front of the line so you can introduce your investment opportunity to those top-tier firms.

  • If most of your clients are based in Vancouver, why is your office located in Toronto?

    Whether based in Toronto, Vancouver, or elsewhere, it is of utmost importance for mining companies to stay visible in Toronto’s investment community.

    Through first-hand experience running several mining companies, the Red Cloud team recognizes that a CEO’s day-to-day responsibilities in running a mining company amount to much more than a full-time job and it's nearly impossible to keep on top of what's happening on the Street, especially because with today’s market volatility, Bay Street is becoming increasingly fluid, with analysts, bankers and retail brokers moving firms on an almost constant basis.

    So for our clients located in Toronto, Vancouver or elsewhere across the globe, we serve as a full-time presence in Toronto.

    That way, not only do we ensure that you always know what’s going on in Toronto’s investment community, but we also ensure the Street knows exactly what is going on with your company so you remain top of mind.

  • Can you raise capital for your clients?

    By not being a broker or EMD, we have the unique ability to introduce you to any of the vast number of brokers across North America. Red Cloud does not directly finance our clients.

    Instead, we are able to leverage our many broker relationships on the Street, expanding your reach to many more institutional sales desks and buy-side investors than any single broker would be able to.

    We have the knowledge to put you in front of those we know to be interested and actively investing in your specific types of story.

    Given the state of the markets, we can’t promise that we’ll raise you capital. What we CAN promise is that we’ll provide you the BEST chance at raising capital.

  • How much do you charge?

    We understand that capital is at a premium in these markets, but for less than a cost of a single, junior salaried corporate development professional, you’ll have access to an entire corporate development team with more than 100 years of combined experience in the mining industry.

    Specific fees vary depending on your company’s needs, but we’ll work closely with you to develop a structure that makes sense to everyone involved.

  • Money is tight. How can I justify hiring a capital markets consultant?

    So much time and capital is wasted, telling the wrong story at the wrong time to the wrong people.

    With our many years of combined experience and our intimate relationships with the Street, you can have confidence that we will end up saving you money on marketing and transactions by helping refine your investment thesis so that it’s palatable when we introduce you to the right investors, precisely when they have an appetite for your type of story and by negotiating financing and transactions fees on your behalf.

  • What type of services do you provide?

    We provide a full spectrum of capital markets services including, but not limited to Strategic Planning, developing Marketing Material, Retail and Institutional Marketing, Financing Advisory, M&A Advisory and Enhancing Management and Board Depth.

    • Strategic Planning
    • Marketing Material
    • Retail and Institutional Marketing
    • Financing Advisory
    • M&A Advisory
    • Enhancing Management and Board Depth

  • Do you do marketing outside of Canada?

    Yes! We provide global institutional and retail marketing in Canada and the US and via our strategic affiliates, across Europe and Asia.

  • Are you an investor relations firm? I’m already working with an IR firm; why do I need your services?

    We are not an investor relations firm; however investor relations is one of the services we provide as part of our complete capital markets service offering.

    Our retail marketing relationships extend throughout Canada and the US and globally into Europe and Asia via our many strategic affiliates; however, unlike traditional IR firms, our service doesn’t stop after the non-deal road show.

    We’ll work very closely with your management team on all things capital markets related from refining the corporate strategy and tailoring the investment thesis to the appetite of the Street , gaining sell-side analyst coverage; searching for growth opportunities through M&A, capital growth through traditional equity via institutional marketing, or non-tradition options, such as royalties, streams, debt, private equity, or strategic corporate partners; and by helping you increase management’s depth by sourcing experienced and talented board members and officer to augment your team.

    So, for less than the cost of a two-day non-deal road show with a traditional IR firm, you have access to a complete range of capital markets advisory services in addition to on demand investor relations services.

  • Do you provide consulting advice in any other industries?

    We pride ourselves on being mining experts and specializing exclusively in the mining industry.

    We know and understand the challenges and needs of mining companies as well as the challenges and needs of both sell-side and buy-side mining investors, because each member of our Red Cloud team has extensive experience as either buy-side mining fund managers, sell-side mining analysts and investment bankers, mining engineering consultants, mining CEO’s, or mining investor relations/marketing professionals.
