TORONTO Wed Jan 22, 2014 8:23am EST

TORONTO Jan 22 (Reuters) - Timmins Gold Corp, which owns the San Francisco gold mine in Mexico, said on Wednesday it had agreed to sell C$25 million worth of equity to a syndicate of banks as it seeks to strengthen its balance sheet.

The syndicate led by RBC Capital Markets will buy the shares at a price of C$1.50 per common share, a 13.3 percent discount to Timmins' closing price of C$1.73 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Tuesday. The transaction was done as a bought deal.

A bought deal occurs when an underwriter, or a syndicate, buy shares from an issuer before selling them to the public. The deals typically occur at a slight discount to a company's last trading price.

The company said proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including repayment of debt and working capital needs.
