Alex Gendzier has a combined 30 years of capital markets experience as both a lawyer and a banker. He represents banks, companies, and investors in a broad range of capital markets transactions and advises boards of directors about corporate governance and SEC and stock exchange requirements. Alex advises on financial strategies and alternatives; initial public offerings (IPOs); follow on equity offerings; private placements of equity; convertible and equity-linked and debt, private investment in public equity (PIPE), preferred stock, high yield, and investment-grade securities; recapitalizations and out-of-court restructurings; liability management (exchange offers and tender offers; consent solicitations); and registered offerings. Given the current dislocation in the financial markets, his focus today is on fresh capital raises in PIPEs and preferred stock investments and also special situations/liability management transactions to allow companies to restructure.
Notable corporate clients include Caliber Collision, SAEx Holdings, Spanish Broadcast Systems, and Taseko Mines. Alex's extensive financial institution representations include Jefferies and Macquarie in private placements of debt and equity securities.
Between 1985 and 1991, Alex worked at Bankers Trust Company and BT Securities Corporation in the senior debt syndications group, leaving as a vice president and team leader.
Alex is a member of the Board of Trustees of The Windward School, serves on its Executive Committee and Governance and Development Committees, and serves as Co-Chair of the Annual Fund Committee of The Dwight School.
