Five Oaks Investment Corp.

Our attorneys advised real estate investment trust Five Oaks Investment Corp (FOIC) (NYSE: OAKS) in a $75 million at-the-market (ATM) facility launched on May 30th with Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA) Inc, BTIG LLC and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Inc. Proceeds of this open market stock sale will be used to acquire target assets, including non-Agency RMBS , multi-family MBS and legacy Agency RMBS.

The Firm assisted with the formation of FOIC, and its SEC-registered external manager, Oak Circle Capital Partners LLC, in March 2012; advised FOIC on its $25 million pre-IPO financing from XL Global plc (NYSE: XL); and acted as counsel for FOIC in its May 2013 IPO led by Barclays and Credit Suisse.
