Private Equity

Investment screening – We start with pre-diligence investment screening tailored to meet specific characteristics and investment opportunities. This is a systematic process using E2GF SWOT analysis tool-kit.

Due Diligence – TBL understands the mindset of a PE firm – when to enter and exit. Working with PE firms, we evaluate regional opportunities in Central and West Africa, provide an independent view of the company, performance and prospect. We provide realistic P&L forecast, price range and negotiation tool-kit aligned to agreed value creation opportunity. Our experience and network in Cameroon, Gabon, Chad, Kenya, Ghana and other countries allow us to help clients quickly develop an accurate assessment of key industry performance issues, including cash flow drivers, relevant market and customer benchmarks and exit options.

Value Creation –Designed for Private Equity firms, TBL’s Value Creation comes with a set of resources, tools and outcome based fees. Each deal is customized to meet specific PE objectives. Immediate after PE deal is closed, we are brought in to ‘clean up’ under performing assets. Typical phase include – blueprint, execution and performance alignment.

Value Execution – Day-to-day operations of the invested company is our responsibility. Our resources speak the local language and well respected for their leadership. We strive to meet targeted performance goals by nurturing employees, customers and vendors.

Exit – Exit plan often require advance preparation where created value is at the peak and a synergistic partner find even greater value after acquisition. Throughout the value creation phase, we drive day-to-day operations with Exit in mind. We help Investors  develop an ideal exit strategy, complete preliminary sale document, market the opportunity and help close the deal.
