Black Economic Empowerment
In the broader sub-Saharan context, Agri-Vie supports the involvement of in-country entrepreneurs and shareholders in the ownership and management of its investee companies.
In the context of South Africa, Exeo Capital is committed to the BEE principles and practices as embodied in the prevailing Codes on Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment. Exeo Capital’s own governance and management structures furthermore reflect active participation by previously disadvantaged individuals.
Against the above background, Exeo Capital’s South African transactions reflect:
Equity participation, where possible, by historically disadvantaged persons
Participation by historically disadvantaged persons in the management and control of investee companies
Market access and other benefits to emerging entrepreneurs
A focus on improved participation opportunities for women
Work force skills development and training
Application of transformative procurement practices
Participation in social corporate investment
