Post Rating:

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Hunter Wise Financial Group, LLC, announced today that Fred G. Jager, its CEO and President, in an interview with business journalist Stu Taylor, said more than 10,000 public companies should consider the “reasonably simple thing to do” and become private entities.

Mr. Jager told the audience of “Equity Strategies” on the Business TalkRadio Network that there is “lots of money chasing these deals” and that switching from a public company to the private sector is a “tremendous commercial opportunity.”

Hunter Wise, with offices in 16 states, and new international offices in London and Beijing, plus in Vancouver, Canada, is among the firms capable of providing the assistance necessary for a smooth transition from being a public to private entity.  Information about the firm, including contact information, is available on its website (

Mr. Jager also explained in the interview that the U.S. business climate has been “extremely challenging since 2008, although there continues to be an abundance of equity capital available, the lack of adequate debt financing has resulted in difficult circumstances in which to grow companies.”  The Hunter Wise Financial Group CEO said he believes the country is beginning to emerge from this problem and forecast a better growth pattern for business in 2011.

“Business spending today in the U.S. is the same as in 1999.  Many businesses have capital that they are sitting on.”  However, Mr. Jager explained, “businesses have to start spending to replace worn-out equipment, refinance, acquire or be acquired.”

Mr. Jager explained that Hunter Wise can find equity sources to finance public and private companies.  He told the national radio audience that billions of dollars are now available in non-secured “mezzanine” funds for middle market companies and that the Irvine, California-based Hunter Wise can also assist in helping companies secure this funding.

Mr. Jager is a nationally known figure in investment banking, one of the nation’s most successful leaders in middle-market corporate financing.  He is also a highly acclaimed business speaker and author of more than 400 published articles.

The entire interview is available at  The interview is in the second hour of the “Equity Strategies” show on January 29, 2011 and in the second hour on February 5, 2011.
