In today’s global economy both publicly traded and privately held companies are looking to take advantage of the tremendous growth opportunities that are available.
Mergers and acquisitions hit new highs in late 2005 with a major slow down in 2010 but that M&A trend of consolidation should ramp up as we move through 2021 moving forward into the next 3-5 years.
Organic growth is always the goal but strategic acquisitions that could be accretive to a publicly traded company inside of 12-24 months is a true benefit. Igniting growth is what investors crave beyond yield and it doesn’t matter whether a company is traded on the OTCQB, Nasdaq Capital or Global Markets, New York Stock Exchange or on an International Exchange, growth is what matters. Many companies that are publicly traded may have institutional investors such as private equity funds, mutual funds, pension funds and that one activist investor as shareholders. In all of those cases its the obligation of the management to spark growth, one way would be organic of course but lining up a strategic acquisition or merging with a compatible company could be key.
In some cases the management may feel that being acquired could be a better alternative to maximize returns for their shareholders.
FGA Partners can be an asset in either of these situations. FGA may even look to be the acquirer or just act as a consultant to facilitate the merger or acquisition. We can assist emerging growth companies on many levels.
FGA Partners works with micro, small and midcap companies providing them with merger and acquisition consulting services, both on United States exchanges and International Exchanges. We work closely with each client to ensure the success of the transaction.

If requested we may also be able to assist these companies with introductions to institutions as it relates to raising the necessary capital to complete a merger or acquisition via investment banking, conventional banking and private investor contacts.
