MIAMI FL--(Marketwire - Feb 11, 2013) - Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (OTCQB: OCFN) a publicly traded financial holding company, announced today that it has signed a Standby Equity Purchase Agreement for a $100,000,000 funding equity line with Lambert Private Equity LLC. OCFN plans to prudently utilize these funds, at their discretion, to support operations for its commercial real estate financing subsidiaries, Omega Capital Street LLC, and Omega CRE Group LLC.
This equity line serves as a catalyst for OCFN's acquisition "roll-up" growth strategy by enabling the company to now aggressively lock in new acquisition targets and move current pending targets from Letter of Intents, to definitive agreements, and finally to acquisition closings such as the previously announced minority acquisition stake of VFG Securities Incorporated & VFG Advisors Incorporated.
Over the past 6 to 9 months OCFN has developed an attractive, balanced, risk-adjusted pipeline of prospective commercial real estate lending opportunities that illustrates their loan origination discipline. Moreover, the loan origination programs of OCFN's lending subsidiaries are well positioned to begin judiciously employing the equity-line proceeds towards these loan products moving forward in 2013. Jon S. Cummings IV, President and Chairman, added, "Our funding agreement with LAMBERT will be instrumental in the expansion of our subsidiaries' business operations. I am excited to have the capital support from Lambert Private Equity LLC and the endless opportunities it potentially can bring to OCFN as we move forward with our micro cap growth initiatives."
