Who We Are
FGA Partners is a private equity firm that was founded in 1998 with a keen focus on developing strategic partnerships with viable privately held companies worldwide that can integrate into the FGA ecosystem. FGA was focused on international commercial real estate transactions and physical commodities prior to 2015 and currently makes strategic investments in viable technology and techcentric manufacturing companies which have synergy as well as vertical integration possibilities within the FGA ecosystem.
FGA’s primary focus is on companies that have good management in place that may be in need of some type of restructuring. These companies may have been mismanaged, may have little to no access to additional capital or may have been stunted due to lack of organic growth.
These turnaround situations provide FGA with the opportunity to breathe new life into companies that would otherwise have shut their doors. The rebuilding of such manufacturing or technology related companies allows FGA to create various skilled jobs in the United States and rebuild communities where the facilities are located.
Some strong areas of interest include Blockchain Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Smart Technologies, Cybersecurity, Aerospace and Automotive. Our number one goal is to insure smooth transactions from beginning to end with dedicated partners.
In 2021/22 FGA Partners will be venturing into the real estate arena again with a focus on value added opportunities which would allow for the incorporation of smart technology and real estate development opportunities utilizing smart technology. As well as the physical commodity arena where technology would be utilized to streamline the transactional process.
On some occasions FGA Partners will work on a consulting contract basis for companies in need of specialty consulting services. FGA provides clients with various consulting services ranging from deal structuring, corporate restructuring, merger and acquisitions etc. We work closely with our clientele to insure that not only the process is as smooth as possible but they have a true understanding moving forward.
Our team works diligently on all of our projects, whether it involves a reverse merger, off market real estate transaction, commodity acquisition, company acquisition or merger or logistics preparation, we insure that our service not only gets the job done but also lays the foundation for continued business.
We do work on a long term contract basis with clientele that require it.

Mergers & Acquisitions
FGA focuses on the acquisition of distressed assets in industries that have synergy with our current portfolio companies. We review and evaluate each situation to reveal that potential value it may have to FGA or one of our portfolio companies. We take the time to learn about the company, its founders, management team, business objectives and the reason for the downturn. In some cases the company may be far gone and we are then looking at an asset acquisition, we evaluate those on a case by case basis.
FGA Partners works closely with business owners in this position to do a number of things, FGA may structure a deal in which FGA arranges for the direct acquisition of the distressed company, assist the distressed company in restructuring their company in order to increase its value and business opportunities or arrange for the sale of the assets of the distressed company.
After being approached on a number of occasions to assist such companies, FGA found a need for not only offering the service but also directly making acquisitions in order to keep American jobs and keep American companies functioning as well as growing.
The exit strategy is dependent on the company, industry and the depth of the issues in place, each company is different and we work closely with each business owner so that we can produce results that work.
In some cases some current management may be able to stay in place post restructure.
Reverse Mergers / Special Purpose Acquisition Companies
FGA Partners does work with companies that find a need to facilitate a reverse merger via a special purpose acquisition company or with an existing publicly traded company. We make sure that they are situations that would benefit the private company and its shareholders.
Special purpose acquisition companies are usually free and clear of legal issues or deep history, so the capital and resources will come into play. Publicly traded shell companies would need to be free of legal issues and very limited promoter interest. We not only facilitate the reverse merger we stay with our clients for the long haul, consulting them on funding options, capital raising, public relations and marketing efforts, mergers/acquisitions, organic growth and employee/management team acquisition and retention.
At FGA we believe that intellectual capital is the most critical part of the equation which allows us to provide innovative solutions and a broader view of the companies we work with and ultimately, having a truly positive economic impact.
Our team are our most valuable asset, they are proactive skilled problem solvers that see the various challenges in industries and acquisition targets as opportunities.
The extensive experience and talent the FGA team gives the firm a base of intellectual capital that we see as second to none.
The advisory board of the firm brings an element to the table that allows us to broaden our scope of experience and add additional value to the firm and our partners
