Investment Approach

Medu Capital invests institutional capital in various portfolio companies. The company seeks to partner with proven entrepreneurs in established businesses with the objective of developing and growing the underlying businesses.

Medu Capital has a broad experience of investing in diverse sectors. Investments of at least R50 million per transaction are made in companies operating across various sectors including basic industries, consumer goods, services, information technology, general industrials and financial services. Medu Capital acquires significant minority or majority of equity interests in portfolio companies.

Medu Capital targets investment opportunities in attractive businesses with competent management teams. The key management teams of the portfolio companies are supported and encouraged to be significant shareholders in the business.

Medu Capital is typically involved in a variety of transactions, including:

  • Providing long term, expansion capital to underlying businesses
  • Partnering with proven entrepreneurs as a significant minority shareholder to facilitate a partial realisation of value and to assist in growing and developing the underlying businesses
  • Acquisition of the whole or a majority interest in a portfolio business in partnership with new incoming management or existing management (management buy-out or management buy-in transactions)
  • Companies seeking to enhance their BEE credentials
  • A combination of the abovementioned transactions

“Medu Capital is committed to growing and developing its investments.”

As such, we work closely with our partners to achieve agreed goals and objectives. Medu Capital’s executives assume non-executive roles in the portfolio companies, and typically are appointed to serve on the boards of directors of the portfolio companies and the relevant subcommittees of the boards.
