Oriental Financial Group Inc. (NYSE: OFG) today announced the commencement of an underwritten public offering of 4,390,243 shares of its common stock.

Jefferies & Company, Inc. will serve as the sole book-running manager for the offering.

The common stock offering will be made only by means of a prospectus.

A registration statement relating to the common stock offering has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.
