Allegent Capital Formed as Successor to FGH Capital

Apr 07, 2004, 01:00 ET from Daniel Fuhrman

    ROCHESTER, Mich., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Allegent Capital, LLC, a newly
 formed private buyout group located in Rochester, announced its formation
 today.  This announcement was made by the firm's founder and owner, Daniel
 Fuhrman, formerly of FGH Capital, LLC.
     Allegent Capital is focused on acquiring specialty, niche market
 industrial manufacturing and services companies with $5 million to $75 million
 in sales that are profitable, possess strong management talent, and have
 attained leadership positions in niche markets.  Allegent Capital is funded by
 its principal and by outside investors.
     Daniel Fuhrman founded FGH Capital, LLC in January 2003.  Separately,
 Fuhrman announced today that FGH Capital is undergoing a restructuring.
     "Allegent Capital is the successor to FGH Capital," said Fuhrman.  "It is
 a buyout firm predicated on the same philosophy upon which I founded FGH
 Capital.  I created Allegent Capital to take advantage of the same types of
 private investment buyout opportunities that I have been working on for the
 past two years.  These are small, niche market companies that are well run and
 are leaders in their markets.  There is a lack of capital and in some cases, a
 lack of management talent, available to these types of companies, which
 represents an opportunity for us."
     Prior to founding Allegent Capital and FGH Capital, Fuhrman was vice
 president of strategic planning at MascoTech, which was acquired by Heartland
 Industrial Partners in November 2000 and re-named Metaldyne, Inc.  Fuhrman has
 been involved in many transactions during his career at MascoTech, the LEK
 Consulting Group, and Bain & Company.
