IFMI Announces $45 Million Investment In PrinceRidge Holdings

Institutional Financial Markets, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: IFMI) (“IFMI”) today announced it has entered into an agreement with PrinceRidge Holdings LP (“PrinceRidge”), under which IFMI will contribute the equity interests in a subsidiary comprising a substantial part of its capital markets segment to PrinceRidge in exchange for a majority equity interest in PrinceRidge.

PrinceRidge, a New York-based financial services firm led by John P. Costas, Chairman, and Michael T. Hutchins, Chief Executive Officer, is comprised of a sales and trading group specializing in structured products and corporate credit, and an investment banking group concentrated on corporate finance. Prior to joining PrinceRidge, Mr. Costas held a variety of positions with UBS, including Deputy CEO of UBS A.G., Chairman and CEO of UBS Investment Bank, and Chairman and CEO of Dillon Read Capital Management LLC. Mr. Hutchins also held various positions with UBS prior to founding PrinceRidge. While at UBS he was Global Head of the Fixed Income Rates & Currencies Group at UBS Investment Bank, and, most recently, he was President of Dillon Read Capital Management LLC.

“We are very excited to be a part of the new PrinceRidge. With PrinceRidge’s leadership and combined businesses, we will increase our capital base and effectively double our team of capital markets professionals,” said Daniel G. Cohen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IFMI. “In addition, we will expand our financial resources and enhance our ability to attract and retain top talent. PrinceRidge has an experienced team with a proven track record of success and we look forward to working with them to create value for IFMI’s shareholders.”

“IFMI shares our commitment to professionalism and integrity, and we are excited to work with their team to drive increased returns for our combined client base,” said Mr. Costas, Chairman of PrinceRidge. “This transaction brings together two highly complementary platforms. We believe the combination gives both our colleagues and business partners a great opportunity to expand our business going forward.”
