Investment Process

Initial contact leads to a two-page information requirement.

Should an in-principle decision be taken to engage, the Agri-Vie management team will undertake a substantive evaluation process, including a review of:

  • Industry and sector status, prospects
  • Business model robustness and growth prospects
  • Quality and commitment of the management team
  • Capital structure and pricing
  • Sustainability of development impacts of the investment
  • Terms for a shareholders’ agreement.

A mutually acceptable term sheet is followed by in-depth business, financial and legal due diligence. Agri-Vie’s investment committee meets on an ‘as needed’ basis to decide on investment proposals from the investment management team.

The above steps typically involve a period of 12-16 weeks.
