Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2012
Hackman Capital, a privately-held investment firm based in Los Angeles, announced today that it is expanding its equipment platform. The effort will increase the firm’s ability to purchase both industrial real estate and equipment, either separately or together.
"Historically, equipment dealers and auctioneers don't purchase real estate, and real estate investors don't purchase equipment. However, the two are often tied together," said Michael Hackman, the firm’s CEO. "We want the marketplace to see us as a single-source solution, able to quickly convert surplus or distressed assets to cash, whether liquidating real estate and equipment, separately or combined."
Hackman Capital, which was founded in 1986, sources opportunities through its extensive deal network in both the real estate and equipment industries. The company is known across marketplaces for its ability to navigate complex transactions and financial restructuring and to close transactions quickly.
"We offer a successful, 26-year track record in both the real estate and equipment arenas," Hackman said.
That successful track record reflects both the company's strong entrepreneurial spirit and highly disciplined investment approach. Since 1986, the company has been the principal investor in more than $800 million of real estate and has conducted hundreds of equipment transactions across four continents.
In the real estate arena, Hackman Capital targets primarily value-added and opportunistic industrial properties. The company acquires, redevelops, repurposes, manages, and leases facilities, and is currently overseeing, on behalf of its affiliates, a national portfolio of more than 50 properties, exceeding 14 million square feet, and 950 acres of developable land.
The company's equipment transactions span a diverse range of industries, and most are sourced through corporate distress, bankruptcy, insolvency, turnarounds and financial restructurings. Once the equipment is acquired, Hackman Capital works with equipment dealers and auctioneers to facilitate the disposition.
