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.
Our primary focus as of today is on viable emerging growth companies that are developing truly disruptive technology in various areas such as FinTech, blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, software, cybersecurity, data intelligence and real estate. We look for dedicated founders and teams that are innovative and passionate in their perspective spaces.
We are active with the companies that we align with, this means that our partner companies have mentorship, guidance and certain other resources that they will need to achieve their realistic goals and succeed.
In 2024 we began to venture back into the leveraged acquisitions arena, putting a focus on undervalued companies that we feel can be poised for growth through the integration of technology, repositioning or restructuring. We look to unlock untapped growth potential not realized by current management, integrate employee ownership and go a step beyond capital. Since the firm is industry agnostic this allows for partnerships in a number of different industries to spark untapped growth.
Some strong areas of acquisition interest include retail, technology, agriculture, aerospace, food, beverage and manufacturing. Our number one goal is to insure smooth transactions from beginning to end with dedicated partners.
FGA Partners will also be venturing into the real estate arena again with a focus on value added and undervalued opportunities which would allow for the incorporation of technology, repositioning and real estate development opportunities.
FGA Partners does entertain working on a consulting contract basis for select companies that may be looking to perform a leveraged management buyout, recapitalization or acquisition.
Mergers & Acquisitions
The acquisition of distressed assets in industries that have synergy with our current portfolio companies is desirable. We will 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.
Working with business owners in a distressed position can do a number of things, it may warrant the structuring of a deal in which FGA arranges for a 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.
Reverse Mergers / Special Purpose Acquisition Companies
FGA Partners does actively seek to connect with groups that represent public vehicles such as a special purpose acquisition company or with an existing publicly traded company.
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.
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.
