Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP First in the Nation in PIPEs Transactions For The Year End 2004

New York, NY- February 3, 2005- Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP advised more issuers on private investment in public equity (PIPE) placements in 2004 than any other law firm nationwide, according to The PIPEs Report 2004 Year in Review (01/15/2005). In 2004, Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference advised 39 issuers on PIPE placements- nearly double any other law firm, with a total value of more than $154.95 million.

According to the report, the PIPE market expanded and matured in 2004, with 1,713 transactions having been consummated, representing a 30% increase over the 1,327 deals closed in 2003. Of these deals, 91%, or 1,542 transactions, were completed in companies with market caps of less than $250 million, and in excess of 75%, or 1,216 transactions, were completed in companies with market caps of less than $100 million. These statistics demonstrate that PIPEs financing have become the mainstay of small capitalization companies. Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, which represents more than 75 companies in this market sector, filed more than 70 registration statements for clients in 2004 and has one of the most active securities departments in the United States – a position which sealed this #1 ranking.

“This firm’s leadership in the PIPEs market is largely attributable to the depth and breadth of our public company client base, which has a constant need for capital to execute their business plans, as well as the expeditious and effective manner in which the firm handles these transactions and the subsequent registration statements,” said Thomas Rose, managing partner of the Firms securities practice. “Investors are sitting on a lot of money and see attractive valuations for these companies that have been ignored by other more traditional sources of capital. This form of financing is also relatively fast, efficient and attractive to the issuer as well. There were $20 billion dollars in PIPEs transactions in 2004 and from what we’re seeing, there’s every reason to be optimistic about the industry’s growth as we move into the new year.”

The Firm, which is a Premier Sponsor for The 4th Annual Industry Summit on PIPEs to be held on February 28, 2005 at The Princeton Club, will be sponsoring a Q&A panel discussion on February 28, 2005 at 4:00 p.m. regarding Investing in Micro Cap companies.

Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP Partner Quoted in The ‘PIPEs Report’ on The Finder Dilemna

Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP Partner Gregory Sichenzia was quoted in the cover feature of the December 1 issue of The PIPEs Report which provided a discussion about the uncertain regulatory status of “finders” who arrange private offerings by introducing issuers to potential investors.

This issue was raised for the second straight year by the participants in the SEC’s annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation that was held in September 2004. At the Forum, the attendees made their concerns about finders a central issue and urged the SEC to address and clarify the regulatory status of these persons. They further suggested that the SEC staff should focus on whether to create an exemption from broker-dealer registration requirements or instead issue a new regulation that would allow finders to register with the SEC under a simplified format.

When asked about the role of finders and the proper manner in which the SEC should address this issue, Mr. Sichenzia noted that while issuers had a practical need for finders, there was certainly a justification for some kind of regulation and oversight of these persons. Mr. Sichenzia further analyzed the need for finders and the potential benefit and burden to the issuers that employ finders. He stressed that “Finders can be a blessing or a curse” and emphasized that the more reputable finders “would not mind being regulated [while regulation] may flush out some of the bad ones.”

According to The PIPEs Report and Privateraise.com, at December 1, 2004, Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP has represented public issuers in 32 PIPE transactions totaling $112.4 million. The Firm has continuously been ranked first in the nation in representing issuers in PIPEs transactions since the period ended June 30, 2004.
