Broadpoint Securities Registers Shares Tied To Recent Private Placement (BPSG, FACT)

April 2, 2008 by Douglas A. McIntyre

Broadpoint Securities (NASDAQ: BPSS) has filed on behalf of stockholders a securities offering whereby an aggregate of 7.058 million shares of common stock for a total maximum price of $12.352 million.

The independent boutique investment bank will not receive any proceeds  from the offering.  This securities registration is tied to a private placement that Broadpoint sold to accredited investors in early March.

We frequently discuss secondary offerings, special financings, restructurings, insider activity, activist investor trends, IPO’s, back door plays into IPO’s, SPAC’s, spin-offs, and more on our open email distribution list.

Broadpoint has a $127 million market cap and had recently completed some private placements of securities.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Broadpoint, this is the one that used to First Albany Securities that used to trade as “FACT” on NASDAQ.

Its 52-week trading range is $0.99 to $1.96.  Back in 2005 this was north of $5.00 and back in 2003 and 2004 this traded north of $15.00 for a brief period of time.
