Vintage Capital Group is an investment firm founded in 2000 by highly successful business executive and investor, Mr. Fred Sands. After establishing and successfully building Fred Sands Realtors into one of the largest real estate and financial services firms in the United States (7th largest), Mr. Fred Sands successfully exited this business in a merger with Coldwell Banker and formed Vintage Capital Group. With a capital base in excess of $150 million available to deploy opportunistically, Vintage Capital brings decades of successful investment and operating expertise to create and build value over a wide variety of opportunities.

Vintage Capital Group’s investment strategy is to opportunistically invest in a wide variety of businesses and industries, with particular expertise in turnarounds of distressed companies, bankruptcies or other special situations.  Investments may include the purchase of debt securities or direct investments of equity either on a control or minority equity basis. Vintage Capital Group will also consider providing bridge financings as well as sale leaseback transactions. Vintage Capital Group provides decades of operating expertise and management skills, navigating businesses through various business and economic cycles that challenge many businesses. Mr. Fred Sands personal investment experience includes completing distressed asset purchases, turnarounds, earlier stage/pre-earning venture investments, as well as control buyouts.

Mr. Fred Sands personal investments over the years have resulted in a return on capital in excess of an 8x cash multiple, a strong testament to the business acumen and experience covering multiple decades and having successfully navigated multiple economic downturns. Mr. Fred Sands currently is a founder of both Vintage Fund Management and Vintage Real Estate. Vintage Capital Group will complete investments that are not consistent with the investment strategies of these two entities.
