We create value for our stakeholders by acquiring, transforming and selling asset-backed businesses in selected industries across Sub-Saharan Africa.
We create superior returns by changing the strategy, operations and finances of our businesses to make them the best in class and leaders in their industry.
We focus on five key drivers to drive our businesses: Strategy; strengthening management; lowering cost of capital; developing through investments (capital expenditure) and acquiring and merging companies. According to the World Bank survey ‘voices of the poor’, 70% of poor people believe that the best way to escape poverty is to find employment (‘voices of the poor’, The World Bank 2009). Given that some 90% of jobs in developing countries are in the private sector (World Bank, 2005), we focus on helping businesses in this sector grow.
