NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ninth Wing Capital, LLC announced today its opening as a boutique investment bank and merchant bank focused primarily on the oil and gas sector with selected clients in the greater energy field, technology and real estate. The firm creates greater, more streamlined relationships between land, legal and finance sectors in the Energy industry, specifically complementing the existing upstream operations capability of Orange Energy Corp., and the legal services of the nationwide law firm, Beckmen Law, PC.
Co-Founders Alex Chehansky, Scott Beckmen and Jeffrey Crook lead a seasoned team of professionals to provide advisory services to clients seeking to raise capital, for acquisitions, divestitures, and mergers as well as to consult on growth debt and equity opportunities and challenges. Ninth Wing maintains offices in New York, NY and Dallas, TX.
Additionally, Ninth Wing manages a co-investment fund to help create opportunities for clients that fit their investors' return mandates. "Our renewal of the erstwhile merchant banking strategy helps our partners and clients align with our investors and provides immediate capabilities for growth," said Chehansky, President and Co-Founder. "The fund targets small investments in all sectors of the oil and gas industry, as well as new ventures and technologies in areas such as real estate and technology."
The principal partners of Ninth Wing, including members of its Advisory Board, are dedicated to the U.S. Military and its core values. The Ninth Wing name exemplifies an extension of the eight wings comprising the world's largest dormitory, housing all 4,400 Midshipmen attending the U.S. Naval Academy. "Ninth Wing extols the virtues of all military men and women, those being loyalty, integrity and honesty," said Chehansky, U.S. Naval Academy graduate who has worked in the financial world over a decade. Most recently, he was Managing Director for Oil and Gas Banking at CohnReznick Capital Markets.
"Forming Ninth Wing Capital provides a synergy between land, legal and finance for our clients that will open the door for high-value growth opportunities, while keeping costs down," said Beckmen, Managing Director of Legal & Operations, Co-Founder, Co-Founder/Orange Energy and Founder/Beckmen Law. The firm has years of experience in the Energy sector—providing superior land, title, contract, transaction, regulatory and litigation services to major and independent companies throughout the U.S.
Orange Energy is a nationwide Land Services company founded by experienced landmen and attorneys with on-the-ground experience in most U.S. shale gas plays. Crook, Managing Director of Energy Development, Co-Founder and Orange Co-Founder CEO, said, "The field knowledge and experience of Orange Energy will provide clients of not only Ninth Wing, but of Orange as well, an advantage in the marketplace that will be unmatched in the industry. This is especially critical during the current downturn in commodity prices."
