Agile Capital invests in companies across diverse sectors with a minimum of R40m earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA).
However, it does not invest in start-up and green fields businesses, business rescue and turnaround cases, deep mining and exploration ventures, real estate assets or primary agriculture.
It focuses on businesses with a solid record, tangible growth prospects and strong management teams.
Agile Capital assists in identifying and defining new strategies for the underlying investment companies.
Its approach is to work alongside management teams and assist in unlocking business opportunities using its vast networks in the market. Further opportunities are realised by harnessing synergies in the existing portfolios.
As an on-balance sheet investor, there is no pressure to exit investments. This enables Agile Capital to forge long-term partnerships with the businesses it invests in, thereby generating superior returns.
By operating outside the executive teams of the companies it invests in, but participating in their company leadership structures, Agile Capital is able to share its various Board experiences, thereby implementing best practices in governance across its investee companies.
