Our Investment Strategy
As a fully funded, commodity diverse investment company, Kazera Global is focused on identifying and investing in opportunities where management believe that value can be created in a defined period of time and with a pre-determined path to exit and value realisation. Proceeds from divestments will be used to sustain the business, invest in organic as well as new growth opportunities, and return value to investors.
The Company intends to leverage its unique board expertise, investment capability and operational proficiency, to facilitate exceptional cash generation and shareholder growth. In order to keep overhead costs low, the Company may retain additional skills and management when required for a specific investment.
Investment opportunities will be sought globally, but with primary focus on Africa; will be open to diversified commodities, and at various stages of project development. Investments may include equity stakes, derivative instruments, debt securities and hybrid instruments. Depending on the investment, the company might operate, manage or simply hold stakes in businesses with potential Board representation where appropriate.
Opportunities will be chosen through a careful selection process which will appraise both the fundamental factors specific to the opportunity as well as wider economic considerations. Typical factors that will be considered are the strength of management, the quality of the asset base, the investment’s scale and growth potential, the commodity price outlook, any geopolitical concerns, the underlying financial position, future working capital requirements as well as potential exit routes. Investments may be in the form of buy-outs, controlling positions (whether initially or as a result of additional or follow-on investments) or strategic minority investments.
There is no fixed limit on the number of projects or companies into which the Company may invest, nor the proportion of the Company’s gross assets that any investment may represent at any time.
