Opus Energy, A Leading Independent Supplier Of Electricity To UK Businesses, Is Celebrating The Success Of Opus Evolution

Opus Energy, a leading independent supplier of electricity to UK businesses, is celebrating the success of its market-leading online energy purchasing system, which was launched just over 12 months ago but is already responsible for 25% of its turnover and has added over 3,000 sites through new customers.

In September 2007, Opus Energy unveiled a UK market-first when it launched Opus Evolution, its advanced online electricity purchasing product for the non Half Hourly metered markets. This pioneering solution, developed and offered exclusively by Opus Energy, is unique to the non Half Hourly metered market sector and allows the customer to fix their electricity demand directly with the wholesale market. Customers are able to manage their portfolio of sites, seeing real-time data and historic information at a time, and in a location, that is convenient to them. The product enables multi-site corporate customers to move away from fixed pricing agreements and offer them the flexibility to implement their own energy purchasing strategies.

Since its launch, Opus Evolution has proved immensely successful in attracting new business and retaining existing customers. By creating access to a market segment that was previously unavailable to the smaller supplier, Opus Energy has been able to attract a host of household brands. Early adopters include Farmfoods, Goodyear Dunlop Ltd, Thorntons Plc, Stagecoach Plc and First Group Plc. These amongst others have helped to cement Opus Energy as not only a real alternative to the major incumbent suppliers, but a market-leader in its field.

Steve James, Commercial Director at Opus Energy, said: “We are delighted by the reception Opus Evolution has had over the last 12 months. The uptake has been more than 200% of the initial target and it is incredible to think that this solution is now responsible for a quarter of our business turnover.

“Without doubt, Opus Evolution helps distinguish Opus Energy as a market-leader amongst our peer group. It showcases us as an innovative and flexible independent supplier that is able to quickly meet the demands of both SME and corporate customers.

”We are in no way standing still with Opus Evolution and we are continuing to look at ways of enhancing it in order to better equip our customers against the volatile energy market.”

Many struggling oil and gas producers have big ideas, but may find their projects postponed indefinitely or pass them by while they struggle to find funds, not anymore

Commonwealth Capital Advisors (CCA) reached yet another milestone when it released a new software module of Financial Architect®. OIL & GAS Producer™ is revolutionizing the way start-up and early-stage Oil & Gas producers are raising substantial amounts of capital using the techniques of Wall Street investment banks.

OIL & GAS Producer™ is an addition to the highly acclaimed Financial Architect® for operating companies that simplifies equity financing for start-up and early-stage companies. The easy-to-use software based OIL & GAS Producer™ generates the required securities offering documents and investor leads, which enable start-up and early stage Oil & Gas producers, Oil & Gas Drillers and Field and Production Engineers raise and manage an unlimited amount of capital for oil and gas acquisition and or production.

CCA is a ten-year-old investment banking advisory firm comprised of Wall Street Investment Bankers, Securities Attorneys and CPAs who invented Financial Architect®, a patent pending system designed to substantially reduce the cost (in time and money) of raising capital, through the selling of securities.

“The goals of Financial Architect®, and the module we’re announcing for oil and gas production companies are simple,” said Timothy Hogan, CCA’s Chairman and CEO. “We want to help entrepreneurs involved in the oil and gas industry to significantly lower the costs and increase the speed of raising equity capital. Just as important, we want to provide oil and gas producers and their professional management teams with an easy-to-use expert system that will enable them to choose the right deal structure for the capital they need, and manage those funds in compliance with federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations.”

“We believe there’s significant and growing demand among entrepreneurs for control over their financing strategies. The software components of Financial Architect® are designed to meet this ‘do-it-yourself’ approach,” he concluded. More importantly, Commonwealth Capital Advisors has developed and now provides

Financial Architect® as the Premier Expert System for start-up, early-stage and seasoned companies, that seek capital. The patent pending, software based, Financial Architect® is a system and method of reducing the cost of raising capital, as so states the abstract of its patent application.

Financial Architect® enables entrepreneurs to: valuate their company pre and post-money; create “marketable deal structures” for securities to be offered that are designed to sell into today’s private equity markets; create the required securities offering documents compliant with federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations; and access to accredited “angel” investors, private equity funds, hedge funds, registered investment advisors, broker-dealers and many other sources of capital, around the world, that have a specific interest in funding start-up and early-stage companies. Access to investors, more Wall Street secrets and techniques, as well as, regulatory guidance is located in the password-protected “Commonwealth Capital Club” located on CCA’s website and is part of Financial Architect®.

“When it comes to raising capital, there are no guarantees — only degrees of probability. To further ensure success, simply increase the probability to the highest degree possible. Financial Architect® is designed to increase your probability of raising capital to the highest degree possible. How can we make such a claim? Because this is the Wall Street process and without it, Wall Street wouldn’t exist. We’ve simply brought the “Wall Street” process to “Main Street” companies.”

Timothy D. Hogan, Founder & CEO: Commonwealth Capital Advisors “When it comes to raising capital, there is no simpler way to explain how to effectively raise substantial amounts of capital while maintaining voting control. If you read just the first 2-Chapters of the Ebook, “The Secrets of Wall St. – Raising Capital for Start-Up and Early Stage Companies,” it would be time well spent. By doing so, you will be able to make an informed decision if our process is right for your company’s capital raising needs. At a minimum, you will save a significant amount of time, money and headaches trying to figure out how the world of capital really works,” Hogan concluded.

If you have not been through the process before and have a limited appreciation and understanding of it, then we suggest you educate yourself first, by reading the abridged edition of: “The Secrets of Wall Street – Raising Capital for Start-Up and Early Stage Companies.” (It’s Complimentary)

Entrepreneurs around the world are revolutionizing the way capital is raised using Financial Architect®.
