HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 24, 2018– Formerly Simmons & Company International®, Energy Specialists of Piper Jaffray®, Simmons Energy | A Division of Piper Jaffray℠ (“Simmons”) today announced a corporate rebranding. The Simmons Energy division offers energy sector specific securities products and investment banking services through the broker/dealer affiliates of Piper Jaffray Companies.
On Monday, October 29, 2018, in connection with the Houston office move to 609 Main in downtown Houston, the division will open its doors as Simmons Energy. The rebrand will be reflected with an updated divisional website and logo.
The Simmons Energy | A Division of Piper Jaffray brand not only highlights its prominence within Piper Jaffray, but also reaffirms the division’s commitment to servicing domestic and international clients in the energy services and equipment, upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.
“For the past 44 years, Simmons has been committed to the global energy industry by delivering exceptional client services in M&A advisory, capital markets execution, institutional sales and investment research. The decision to become Simmons Energy follows a natural evolution for our business and the industry,” said Fred Charlton, chairman and managing director of energy investment banking at Simmons Energy | A Division of Piper Jaffray.
Since Simmons’ sale to Piper Jaffray Companies in February 2016, the group has substantially grown its footprint in equity capital markets, as well as added capabilities for clients in debt capital markets, debt underwriting, equity private placements, and restructuring and special situations.
“We are excited about the corporate rebrand to Simmons Energy. Our energy franchise is best-in-class and it was important for us to keep the namesake that is recognizable to the market,” added Chad Abraham, chief executive officer of Piper Jaffray Companies.
