Adenia Capital III makes equity and quasi-equity investments in private companies active in Sub-Saharan Africa that contribute to economic and social development by partnering with entrepreneurs, mobilizing financial resources for the healthcare, hospitality, education, agribusiness/consumer goods, telecom, financial services, business services and other sectors.
Adenia Capital (III) is the third fund launched by Adenia Partners. Its objective is to provide long-term capital appreciation to its investors through equity and quasi-equity investments in private companies active in Sub-Saharan Africa. Adenia aims to contribute to the economic and social development of these regions by partnering with entrepreneurs, developing winning and profitable strategies, and mobilizing financial resources for the private sector. The firm has a "high touch" operating model, taking an active role in portfolio companies. It devotes significant internal resources to help its management teams develop and execute growth strategies.
Adenia's preferred investment strategy is to have control, with majority ownership, although we can also support outstanding promoters through a minority stake. The fund provides the necessary capital to allow for a change of control in the shareholding structure and to invest in order to increase production capacities, launch activities in new territories, etc.
