Equity Capital Markets

As the equity financing arm of BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC, we structure equity financing solutions for public companies. We are a leader and long-time advocate for "at-the-market" offerings, also known as our sales agency or continuous equity programs, which we have offered since 2002 as Sales Agency Financing for Equity (SAFESM).

Raise Capital When You Need To

SAFE enables companies to raise targeted amounts of capital by issuing common shares directly into the market as needed. We manage the sales process through electronic trading strategies designed to access the equity markets anonymously.

Under the SAFE program, BNY Mellon Capital Markets acts as agent for the issuer, and upon delivery of an issuance notice, initiates the electronic sale of shares directly via the exchange at current market prices.

Choose a Provider that Delivers

Key benefits to using SAFE, versus a more conventional "follow-on" offering, include

  • Discreet access to the equity market
  • Issuer control of the timing, pricing and number of shares issued
  • Competitive commission rates
  • Quality execution
