First venture capital funds launched in Angola with a maximum capitalization of 7.5 billion kwanzas

DeltaGest Capital launched the first venture capital funds on the Angolan market, with a maximum capitalization of 7.5 billion kwanzas, for the environment and economic diversification sectors, the institution announced.


According to DeltaGest Capital, a company with Angolan capital, the two funds "Greenfield" and "Brownfield", closed and privately subscribed", are already registered with the Capital Market Commission (CMC).

Both funds will have a maximum capitalization of 7.5 billion kwanzas with a total of 600 participation units, refers in a statement to which Lusa had access this Monday.

Speaking this Monday to Lusa, the chairman of the company's board of directors, João Saraiva, said that "the capitalization of "Greenfield" should be completed this week, which will have a concern in terms of the environment, sustainability and governance business of your investments.

"The" Greenfield "was more attractive to investors at an individual level, so I think we can close the minimum capitalization within this week", he stressed.

Without revealing the capitalization period of the "Brownfield" fund, which will be of the 'venture capital' type dedicated to opportunities linked to the diversification of the economy and the development of national local content, the official signaled the interest of investors.

"We have two types of investors: institutional and corporate. It is interesting that individual investors have felt more attracted to the fund on the environment, however, institutions, particularly insurance companies, are currently undergoing an internal approval process in investment in our funds", he said.

Venture capital funds are "a new financial instrument in the Angolan market, whose main objective is to provide an investment alternative in kwanzas, which allows portfolio diversification, with increased return on assets through an investment".

According to the statement, the investments will be made through the "acquisition of share capital, subscription of capital increases, contracting and subscription of debt instruments or hybrid instruments".

The funds are intended for "financing of companies that operate in areas of economic activity in the extractive and transforming industries, assets providing technological services, assets with potential, but in the process of negotiating debts with banks, and others", reads the note.

João Saraiva, quoted in the statement, considers this to be the ideal time to launch this type of funds in Angola because the "regulator, CMC and potential investors have already reached a level of competence and robustness of international standard that allows DeltaGest Capital to have confidence in the success of this capitalization process".
