Omega Commercial Finance Corporation Implements $10MM Direct Public Offering Capital Markets Plan to Support Their Small Balance Commercial Real Estate Lending Product

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (OTCQB: OCFN) has $10-Million available to them in the event they can sell the shares at the $0.10 per share price through their Direct Public Offering (DPO) filed in an S-1 registration. The intent is to use the proceeds from the DPO sales to support Omega Capital Street and Omega CRE Group's Small Balance Loan Program and for future acquisition targets consisting of privately held and operating commercial mortgage banking-firms, which typically facilitate small balance loan originations. In order to facilitate this process OCFN has created its own direct marketing program since a DPO is similar to an initial public offering (IPO) in that stock is sold to investors. However unlike an IPO, a company uses a DPO to raise capital directly with the investor and without the assistance of an intermediary such as an investment-banking firm

In conjunction with supporting our lending operations and as previously announced in Q1 of 2013, OCFN has acquired minority stake in VFG Securities & VFG Advisors to function as their in-house capitalization and financial arm. Management plans to take 100% ownership once the application with FIRNA, which was filed in March of 2013, is approved. More importantly, these successfully implemented strategies enables the DPO structure to take full traction and create the Niche Lending Strategy that is focused on a sector of the commercial real estate financing market where large lending and banking institutions have left vulnerable. This sector is "Small Balance Loans" ranging from $250,000 to $500,000. Therefore, Omega intends to specifically target this opportunity by focusing on retail and multifamily property-types, which from a fundamental standpoint has fully recovered. Collectively with the DPO capital and the financial arm support of VFG, OCFN will have a distinctive advantage over its competition in placing these particular loan sizes and in turn create the ability to garner vast market share quickly to sustained viable long-term growth for OCFN's shareholders. This idea was fully vetted by Management through direct communication with successful established CRE mortgage bankers, small community bankers, commercial real estate professional sales-forces, and conduit lenders currently active in the CRE market. These groups have highly recommended this approach due in part to having large pipelines of lending opportunities they need to place and represent an under serviced sector of this market. 

Jon Cummings IV, President of OCFN, commented, "We are very excited over the opportunity to implement a type of strategy that allows the company a means to generate 'cash' with equity sales therefore creating wider profit margins as an alternative to a debt laden structure that applies interest carrying cost resulting in a more constricted profit margin. Plus, this puts the ability to access capital back into my company's hands, which contributes to my lending operations."
