C4 Capital Markets is targeting both Companies looking to raise capital and institutional investors (i.e. Hedge Fund, Private Equity Funds, Foundations, Endowments, etc.). We act as the placement agent for Companies looking to raise capital, and upon formal engagement with our firm, we represent their particular "deal" and try to raise them the needed capital from the institutional buyers that we have relationships with.
The Companies we represent are either publicly traded or privately held (most of them will be public companies listed on either a public stock exchange [Nasdaq, NYSE, AMEX] or the Over The Counter public market [OTCBB]). Typically, the Companies we will represent have a need for capital for a number of reasons: to facilitate an acquisition, deploy a new product line, and/or provide working capital so as to further develop current product lines and drive earnings towards break-even. They are small- and micro-cap companies (Market Capitalization less than $500mil).
Our investors are all institutional, meaning that they are not High Net Worth individuals. Our investors are Hedge Funds, Private Equity Funds, Endowments, and Foundations. They typically manage anywhere from $100 million to over $100 billion.
