Sprott Physical Gold Trust Announces Follow On, Will Sequester Another $300 Million In Physical; PSLV Next?

Tyler Durden's picture


It's a good thing that unlike the silver market, which continues to be in backwardation (see chart), the gold market is fully supplied. Otherwise the just released news from Sprott Asset Management that his Physical Gold Trust (PHYS) is pursuing a $300 million follow on would finally send gold breaking out to $2,000, where it will be sooner or later anyway. Amusingly, contrary to various other blogs' expectations that Sprott is top ticking the market with selling shareholder shelf statements, Sprott is doing just the opposite: "certain funds managed by Sprott Asset Management LP, have agreed to purchase no less than $115 million of Units in this Offering." So yeah, no top tick here. Still, the news that Sprott is about to mop up another $300 million in physical gold from the market will likely send gold quite higher. It appears to have already had an impact on silver, which jumped by $20 cents to another 31 year high on the news, as the market now likely expects a follow on offering in PSLV as well imminently.

The press release

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - 04/04/11) - Sprott Physical Gold Trust (the "Trust") (TSX:PHY.U - News)(NYSE:PHYS - News),
a trust created to invest and hold substantially all of its assets in
physical gold bullion and managed by Sprott Asset Management LP,
announced today that it has launched a follow-on offering of
transferable, redeemable units of the Trust ("Units") in an aggregate
amount of up to $340 million at a price of $12.54 per unit (the
"Offering"). Certain lead investors, including certain funds managed by
Sprott Asset Management LP, have agreed to purchase no less than $115
million of Units in this Offering.

The Trust will use the net
proceeds of this Offering to acquire physical gold bullion in accordance
with the Trust's objective and subject to the Trust's investment and
operating restrictions described in the prospectus related to this
Offering. Under the trust agreement governing the Trust, the net
proceeds of the Offering per unit must be not less than 100% of the most
recently calculated net asset value per Unit of the Trust prior to, or
upon determination of, pricing of the offering.

The Units are
listed on the NYSE Arca and the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols
"PHYS" and "PHY.U", respectively. The Offering will be made
simultaneously in the United States and Canada by Morgan Stanley and RBC
Capital Markets.

not sure what you're talking about.  I never made any mention of Sprott or anyone else top-ticking the price of silver or gold. Rather, the PSLV premium to NAV.  It's not a very hard concept, so you should still be able to grasp it.

I agree Go Sprott!!  The Boys over at Sprott Asset Management see the writing on the walls.  As for Small Bennie Boy The pint size Bankster and the corrupt Private company called "The Creature from Jekyll Island" ( thank you Mr Griffin) they will continue to spew there propaganda through there Spin machine ( oh ya it was once called the free press).   Here is the skinny  Gold $1800 by the end of the year, Silver $50, and as the original Mr Gold ( Jim Sinclair)  would say QE TO INFINITY!!!!!!!!!

300 million is chicken feed in the gold market.  Try 300 billion if you really want to make an impact.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 09:05 | 1136275 PeaBird
PeaBird's picture

300 million usd's in gold terms is just under 6 1/2 metric tonnes at the current paper price of 46,171.00 per kg. But since this is a physical purchase, add about a 3% premium to that price (if you're lucky), and that would make it about 47556.13 usd's per kg, so he'd get closer to around 6.2 metric tonnes for that amount of fiat.

How many entities on the planet do you know of, or think you know of, with 6.2 tonnes of unencumbered physical gold in their holdings that will sell that amount at 47556.13 usd's per kg to Mr. Sprott?

Ben Ali from Tunisia only has 1.5 tonnes, so he doesn't even qualify as a potential seller. Do you reckon Muburak or Qaddafi will sell that amount? hahaha

And you talk about 300 billion worth of gold? WTF? That's 6500 tonnes dude !!!

More than what most sovereigns would have...who & where do you think sellers will show up, in the middle of an 11 year secular bull market, that will sell 6500 metric tonnes of gold at 47556.13 per kg? Nowhere...that's where...not at these prices.

Please get a grip on reality. Six and a half tonnes of unencumbered physical gold for immediate delivery is NOT chicken feed to source in this market. And you think Six thousand five hundred metric tonnes will even be for sale? At these prices? C'mon...get real !!!

Agreed.   Central Fund did tap the market for over $300 MM less than 10 days ago.   Half of that amount went to buy about 4MM ounces of Silver, the rest to buy gold.  Note how silver has jumped since that announment.

Conversely Sprott only needs to buy $185 MM worth of gold .  The rest is just a paper swap.  He swaps his gold in other funds over to the gold fund and hands them back paper.  Kinda smells rotten doesn't it.   Even more rotten smelling was that he did the same thing with his silver fund PSLV.  He swapped about $285 MM of paper out of the $500 MM to his own funds.  Nice way to double dip on performance and Mer/admin fees.

Much less of a Sprott fan after all these paper games. Now sticking with Central Fund along with Central Fund's all silver play, Silver Bullion Trust.

Better run, more trustworthy, no paper games, and lower MER's.

I am glad I didn't hold back, but DCA'd into silver starting at about $14 and had finished most of my buying at $17.50.  Silver been berry berry good to me.

There are people over at Goldismoney that claim to have cashed out their IRAs, taken the tax hit, and put it all into silver at $6.

I say bullshit. When it was at 6, none of the conditions existed that would portend taking a 30% tax and penalty hit or greater. I remember well. I was there. I cashed out in early 2009 and starting slipping in around 20. Always love to hear these fables...delivered ex post facto by delusional egos.

Right douche. I got the receipts from 99. Of course if you were doing research, it sure as hell DID look like the time to buy. Also looked like the time for a stock market crash. But of course, no one could have seen it coming.

i bought my first silver bars at six.....have the receipts and all...and frankly, i still remember opening up the box, looking at it, and thinking, i'm either going to be very, very right, or feel like the biggest horse's ass in the world in five years.....

and how long ago was this? long enough that i had one sitting on my desk, propping my key board for two years before i started using safe deposit boxes.......

not one person who walked in my office asked what it was or knew what is was....don't think that would be different now....which is why silver is going to keep going....

much further.

Use a non-bank storage facility now, not a bank owned safety deposit box.  Most larger cities have privately owned vault storage companies.  They are usually opened 24/7/365, thus allowing box holders access.

Thank you.

I would hope that someone with the smarts to buy silver bars @ $6 would have the sense not to put their trust in the banks that helped get it to the $38 it's at today. Don't you read this site?

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE, don't put your PM's in safety deposit boxes! It is not what the name implies.

Gold 36000's picture

There were some of us following the conspiracy blogs in the late 90's.  Also how could you not stock up on silver and gold at historic lows?

Buying at 20 sounds like you are a mo mo investor.

Buy when you are a real contrarian and not just an alienated hanger-on late to the party.  There were people who sold their houses in the late 90's and early 2000's also because housing prices were clearly unsustainable.  These oddballs were written up in various news articles.  I know several oddball freakazoids who cashed out their IRA's in the late 90s and bought a bunch of silver to bury along with their guns and wheatberries.  I believe many of the stories are true, but probably there are a few just wanting to brag about their fantasy trades.

Yes indeed the conditions existed that could warrant taking the risk.  Richard Russell has always said it is inflate or die.  No government will ever take the deflationary cure any more.  that is tradeable information for those who know the truth about governments and credit cycles.

Cattle, chickens, Pigs, Wheat, Corn, WATER will be #1.

Remember. If you give a man a fish you will feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you will feed him for a lifetime.

Your gold will buy you some fish. But no matter how much you have you will still run out if your trading it for things you eat or consume.

If you have cattle etc, buy spare parts. If you have spare parts, purchase gold because sooner or later you'll have to get more spare parts.

I agree, but it's very tough to calculate the inverse relationship of $USD v. $Gold.  Do you think $USD of 65 should equal about $1800 gold?  Maybe with both markets being rigged there is no way to get a true "relationship".  Do you have a gold target price?

We can borrow from our 401k. 

When it blew up in 08, and I discovered that I could actually get the check to arrive in the mail, I borrowed the max (got laughed at, too), and bought metals for myself and dear ole Mom.  Mom is a pretty happy gal these days.  Go figure.  (Note to ZH: Mutha Bale thanks you).

If you can't borrow, sometimes you can roll it over.  Sometimes you have to quit your job.  Had it gotten much worse, I woulda done just that.  There's little point in working, if they are paying you in pesos.

Indeed, we are allowed to borrow in our 401k accounts as well, and I took 50% of mine early 2009.  The best part of it is that the interest you pay, you are paying back to yourself. All the money goes back each month you payment is deducted with the interest.  It's a risk free, interest free loan.  The bankers get ZERO!!!

Because I only needed half of what I borrowed to insure my 401k and other savings (an agreeable side-effect of being disgustingly average), and I had visions of gas prices going somewhere between annoying and pentecostal, I um, also bought a StreetGlide.  Harley wants about 10%.  SaveTheBales Savings & Loan takes 4.25, and they give it back to me when they are done with it.  Neither Harley nor the Morgue were willing to be so kind.  I believe their last words were "and stay out!!"

So why pay THEM interest?  And if the money is going to zero, better spend it.

Besides, you can't ride Cisco to the Grand Canyon.

Do I play something like the PHYS or PSLV and get my ass handed to me by touching those IRAs? Or take the ass ramming and invest more in hard?

Gimme a break.  I can't believe anyone really thinks this clown is a real trader.  All he does is spew drive-by comments, and never answers for one of them.  +1 junk, as usual.

Go Sprott, the man with golden gun which is loaded with silver bullets.

This Sprott bloke appears to be a proper posterity protector, going a little to large on gold in my opinion vs it's superior cousin the precious. BTW a GSR of 37.11 be intolerable.

plata pura, the friendly Rodamiento asks you why a GSR of 37.11 (approx. where it is now) as intolerable?  I own both, but would like to see your reasoning.

Given the supply issues facing silver right now I wonder why Eric won't add to PSLV?

A follow on in silver wouldn't be the straw that broke the camels back, more like the 200 metric tonnes that crushed the camel into paste.

short squeeze bitchez


altho can't imagine why anyone would buy PSLV when there's SLW to be bought. like physical but with 2.8x leverage and a lot more market manipulation

SLW is a great stock and company.  However, people who want to be able to get their paws on their physical silver if need be prefer PSLV.

I received 5 solicitations in the mail to sell gold today!  Maybe these guys work for PSLV!

I also noticed that Google lists 449,000,000 hits for "sell gold".  It lists 3,120,000 hits for "buy gold".

I would say the man in the street is more likely to be thinking about selling gold than buying!

Kid Dynamite's theory about Sprott pulling a insider share sale prior to dilution just went boom! Short wick.

Sprott has an open ended mutual fund mirroring PSLV to be launced within two weeks, so any follow up offer of PSLV is months away given how long these prospectuses take to clear. Beware the PSLV near term. The 20% premium on the ETF will diminish/be arbitraged as the mutual fund priced at NAV is launched in two weeks.

I can't wait for gold to hit $2,000.  Sprott, thanks for boosting my assets' value even more!  Loving it, and loving the silver rage lately.  let's get that money, boys!
