Mahogany Private Equity invests in non-listed companies with established track records and strong management team. Investee companies need to have a clearly defined market position and competitive advantage as well as strong cash flow and/or growth potential.

Mahogany is invested in partnership with management and strategic shareholders. Mahogany does not require operating control and is not involved in the day-to-day running of the business but will help to build value for all stakeholders. Mahogany actively participates in business development, financial planning, review and structuring, as well as formulation and reviews of business strategy. We view ourselves as a partner in business and not as pure financiers.

We are able to participate in leveraged and management buy-outs and buy-ins.

While our investment horizon is flexible, we do aim to take stakes with long term shareholding aspirations, which could be up to 10 years.

We require representation on the board, as well as having involvement with strategic issues.

We look at a broad range of industries throughout South Africa and SADC excluding property, mining, farming, start up technology and armaments.
