F5Digital’s website announces closure

Singapore-based digital agency F5Digital has closed after six years in business.

The agency had 35 staff in offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

The closure comes six months after founder Gregory Birge claimed that he had been a victim of fraud in an article in Campaign, and has spent the last nine months attempting to resolve the issue.

On F5Digital’s website, Birge has written:

The fantastic machine that was F5DIGITAL is no more. Since January 2013, I have tried to save my baby by trying any possible solution, reaching out to all local authorities and government organization, hiring external professionals.

Unfortunately, 9 months after, after losing everything, from personal to professional, to health, finance, there is no more possibility than the withdrawal.

This is a terrible feeling to witness this nightmare, powerless and trying to stay out of the water while slowly drowning.

There are no words strong enough to express what I went through and I do not intend to look anymore at the past nor reopen this chapter, end of my career, stopped in Singapore.

Moving forward, I will be out of Singapore for the next 6 months but will remain reachable through regular channels, while past contact details are not in use anymore.

I believe all opened cases have been properly closed, but should there by anything that where not handled, please refer to the dedicated section [of F5Digital’s website] and we will do our best to find a solution.

Birge is now moving into the music business with a company called De:dubbed, which represents music producer, sound Engineer and DJ MonkeYoda.
