FON Corporate Finance Announces Formation of ADG Investment Banking Group

New sector focused group to deliver corporate advisory services to the ADG market including Buy-side and Sell-side M&A Representation, Debt & Equity Capital Raises, Management and ESOP Buyouts, and Strategic Advisory Services

McLean, VA., April 15, 2020 - Jason R. Frank, CEO of FON Corporate Finance, LLC (“FON CF”), announced today the formation of an Aerospace, Defense & Government (“ADG”) industry group that will provide professional, strategic, and financial advisory services associated with Sell Side M&A Advisory, Buy Side M&A Support, Corporate Divestitures, Management, ESOP & Leveraged Buyouts, and Debt & Equity Recapitalizations.  FON CF’s ADG group will also provide guidance for commercial companies seeking to enter the government market and companies new to the capital markets, assist in finding additional strategic capital sources, and facilitate capital structure improvement.  The leadership team of the company’s ADG sector group has experience with hundreds of prior ADG engagements, having successfully helped clients prepare for strategic initiatives such as a sale of business, merger or acquisitions, ESOPs, business valuation, growth equity or recapitalization, debt restructuring, business expansion, ownership succession, and management buyouts or transitions.

FON CF’s ADG group will be managed by Cameron Hamilton. In this role, Mr. Hamilton will be responsible for the Company’s ADG transactional advisory services and business and strategic development as FON continues to expand its advisory services to investment banking clients who are seeking expert advice in developing critical strategic solutions.  Mr. Hamilton previously spent 19 years as a Senior Managing Director and Partner with The McLean Group and has been involved in more than 75 successful sell- and buy-side M&A and capital formation engagements. 

“Cameron’s history of two decades in the ADG industry provides our ADG group with a level of transactional experience that significantly enhances our existing advisory services,” said Mr. Frank. “Our goal is to always assist our clients in identifying, evaluating, and executing upon the best strategic options for their specific situation and Cameron is always seeking to do exactly that.  He has a reputation of consistently going above and beyond to achieve his clients’ goals.” 

Mr. Hamilton noted that: “I am extremely excited to join the amazing team at FON.  The combined experience of the team within the government, owning and operating government contractors, finding application of commercial technology for innovation, and the strength of the advisory board, all combine to create an unequaled foundation for supporting our clients in their growth and strategic transactions.”

FON CF will focus on small and middle-market companies headquartered in the U.S., as well as larger companies wishing to acquire, merge or divest divisions.  FON CF prefers transactions ranging from $20 million to $250 million, but will consider transactions outside of this range.  The Company will draw upon the platform of advisory services currently being provided by the broader FON Advisors organization to the ADG market including: Management Consulting; Investment Banking; Valuation Advisory; and Investing.

The Company plans to be industry agnostic in the long-term, leveraging team experience in retail, consumer products, manufacturing, healthcare, business and professional services, financial services, automotive, energy, and technology.
