MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2013) - Omega Commercial Finance Corporation (OTCQB: OCFN) recently executed a Selling Agreement with VFG Securities ("the Broker") in which a minority stake was acquired to function as OCFN's primary financial arm to directly capitalize OCFN's lending companies, Omega Capital Street and Omega CRE Group. The Selling Agreement places VFG Securities as the selling/placement agent in connection with a Private Placement issuance of OCFN's 4.5% Series A Redeemable Cumulative Preferred Stock with a maximum offering amount up to $1-Billion. The investment offering proceeds from the sale of the preferred stock will exclusively and vertically fund the lending programs of OCFN's subsidiaries. The lending programs include, Omega Capital Street's CMBS-style fixed loan originations underwritten with proven and standard securitization criteria. Management believes the landscape of these CMBS style loans have now stabilized in select CBD's and there are many attractive opportunities for deploying capital for refinancing of maturing CMBS loans. Other OCFN lending programs include those of Omega CRE Group that will focus primarily on short-term high-yielding bridge loan originations for a select few construction projects specifically in the multifamily sector, a sector which is now taking traction across the country and globally. Additionally, OCFN will use the preferred stock offering proceeds for strategic acquisitions to purchase operating-related financial institutions with proven management and existing revenue sources of income. Jon Cummings IV, President of OCFN, commented, "These synergies gained through our minority stake in VFG are beginning to take its positive course."
