OPPENHEIMER ANNOUNCES PRICING OF SENIOR SECURED NOTES OFFERING

NEW YORK, April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. ("OPY") announced today that it priced $200 million aggregate principal amount of 8.75% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 (the "Notes") in connection with its previously announced private offering exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The closing of the private offering is expected to occur on April 12, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior secured basis by OPY's subsidiaries, E.A. Viner International Co. and Viner Finance Inc. The Notes will be secured by a first-priority security interest in substantially all of OPY's and the subsidiary guarantors' existing and future tangible and intangible assets.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Notes will be offered in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act and outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act.

OPY will use the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes to refinance (i)  $22.5 million outstanding as of December 31, 2010 under its Secured Credit Note and (ii) all amounts outstanding under its $100.0 million Subordinated Note. The remaining net proceeds of this offering will be used for general corporate purposes.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
