Company Profile

Business Partners Limited is a specialist risk finance company for formal small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in South Africa, and selected African countries. The company actively supports entrepreneurial growth by providing financing, specialist sectoral knowledge and added-value services for viable small and medium businesses.

Fund Overview

Deals are structured using equity, shareholders’ loan accounts, royalties and term loans or any combination of these. Business Partners has developed a range of proprietal financing models that offer entrepreneurs maximum flexibility to suit their specific needs.

Applications for finance are assessed on the viability of a business, which comprises two important elements:

  • the business and
  • the entrepreneur

The business evaluation includes matters such as the product or service and its market acceptability, market size, the gearing of the business, and its ability to exist and grow, as well as the business’s history, the stage of its development and medium- to long-term profit potential, technical aspects and the location of the business.

In evaluating the entrepreneur, aspects such the ability to run a successful business on sound business principles, integrity, drive, vision and appropriate experience, are considered.

Business Partners considers financing applications up to R20 million in all sectors of the economy — with the exception of on-lending activities, direct farming operations, underground mining and non-profit organisations — to those formal small and medium businesses whose gross assets are under R100 million, where annual turnover does not exceed R200 million and/or employees are less than 500 in number.

Applications for financing below R500 000 are usually not considered; and the company does not operate in the informal or micro enterprise sectors.

Physical address: As above

Website: www.alphacapital.co.za

Alpha Company profile

Alpha Capital (Pty) Ltd (“Alpha Capital”) manages the Alpha Capital Trust which is a vested trust, holding various investments. Each entity within which a strategic investment is made, is an independent legal entity, with its own executive management, on which an Alpha Capital executive is generally represented. There are no cross shareholdings, although certain trust assets may be used to collateralise debt on other trust assets. Debt may also be employed at the trust level to manage liquidity and/or enhance the return on equity to investors.

Fund Overview

Alpha Capital’s strategy is to invest in, and actively manage, significant shareholdings in a diverse portfolio of carefully qualified assets. Our investment universe consists of private and public companies, property and real assets. We do not seek operational involvement, but prefer to partner with strong management teams who demonstrate specialised industry knowledge and skills, and who have significant financial exposure to their own companies. We believe that the best managers think like and are owners. We do however seek active strategic input in the business, and where possible, will have an Alpha Capital executive represented at board level. The entry price is a fundamental consideration as we must have a high conviction that there is significant scope for good value creation over the medium to long-term. We also recognize that the deal you don’t do, can be as important as the deal you do.
