The Alternative Capital Finance Group (ACF) is responsible for the execution of confidentially marketed equity and equity-linked offerings for public companies. ACF advises public companies regarding capitalization strategies and raising capital in situations where regular-way broadly marketed offerings are often not the optimal solution — for example, quickly accessing capital for small public companies (less than $500 million equity market value), acquisition funding and private placements. ACF advises clients throughout the capital raising process from initial planning to pricing and closing. ACF works side by side with Oppenheimer’s senior industry bankers during the capital raising process and subsequently works with Oppenheimer’s corporate services team, equity capital markets desk and general sales force, to ensure firm-wide post offering support including non-deal marketing events and conference attendance. Since 2010, the ACF team has completed over 100 lead managed confidentially marketed financings for public company clients.


Our team offers public company clients extensive execution experience across the following products:


Confidentially Marketed Public Offerings (CMPOs)
Registered Directs
Private Convertible Debt/Preferred Stock
Structured Finance Solutions
