SECTION 8 – OTHER EVENTS


ITEM 8.01. Other Events.


On November 9, 2006, Oppenheimer Holdings Inc.’s (the “Company”) primary operating subsidiary, Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. (“Opco”), received a letter from the Chief of Enforcement of the Securities Division of the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (the “Division”).  In that letter, the Division stated its disagreement with the description in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2006 (filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 8, 2006) of the Division’s pending investigation that concerns Opco’s responses in an earlier investigation that led to a pending administrative proceeding.  Among other things, the letter asserts that the Division believes Opco is not cooperating with the Division’s current investigation, a position with which the Company disagrees.


The current investigation, in our understanding, involves written responses by Opco provided to the Division stating in substance that, at all times relevant to the underlying investigation, Opco had in place adequate systems to retain and preserve emails.  Opco subsequently informed the Division that, during the relevant period, one of its legacy email systems did not retain email in the required format and therefore some email may not have been retained.  The Division’s letter states that the investigation involves the false and/or misleading nature of the initial responses. The investigation, which is ongoing, also involves the supervision of these responses by senior management. It is possible that in addition to seeking monetary penalties, the Division may seek to bring charges against individuals.  While the Company continues to hope to reach a fair resolution of issues arising from this investigation and the pending administrative proceeding, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.
