Acquisitions & Partnerships

We acquire and scale small, medium and midmarket enterprises. Our deal structure is designed to maximize the value to the seller. We achieve this through a phased exit allowing the seller to gain from the upside as we optimise operations, unlock BEE opportunities and drive digital growth.

We purchase a majority equity stake of the company leaving the owner with a minority equity stake. As we take over operations the owner transitions out of the day-to-day into an advisory role relieving them of the majority of their responsibility and time commitment. The remaining equity is purchased after 2-4 years of growth at the new higher valuation.

We drive growth and enhance the performance of the business by focusing on the following:

  • ​Improved Governance: Incentive Structures, Accountability, Leadership.

  • Sensible Management: Proactive Structures, Responsible Systems.

  • Optimised Operations: Efficient Systems, Effective Procedures, Value Chain Optimisation.

  • Effective Training: Upskill, Competent Staff.

  • Secure Finance: Capital Raising, Debt Management, Strategic Planning, Secure Systems.

  • Smart Tax: Efficient Accounting, Sound Financial Management, Clean Audits.
