Alternative Funding Sources for Businesses

A new fund, backed by local businesspeople, seeking to invest in the SME sector in Malaysia and Thai

A new fund, backed by local businesspeople, seeking to invest in the SME sector in Malaysia and Thai

Specifically, we are seeking a majority stake in a SME with revenues from RM10-30M. We are relatively unfussy on industry and are happy to review opportunities more on their business performance, potential and seller motive.

We target companies with an Enterprise Value of US$3-10M seeking to sell a controlling stake

with honestly motivated sellers: Succession issues, conflict issues, spin-offs from large conglomerates
within profitable industries with attractive growth potential but limited key-man risk
Unlike buyout funds, we plans to acquire a single company and operate it full-time
We are presently seeking investment opportunities. We believe we offer existing business owners:

An opportunity to see their businesses managed for the long-term with a team of full-time managers
who will bring fresh energy and perspectives to the business while looking after existing employees
Flexibility in the deal structure and an opportunity to play an on-going role in the business
High levels of confidentiality during this sensitive period and during the deal process
We are looking for the following type of business

A business with the right properties given the background of our Principals

Good defensive properties (e.g. a valuation not exceeding 6x FCF, strong reputation / brand, recurring revenues)
A business we can learn & operate in a 12-24 month transition period
with a seller who has a legitimate reason to sell
With a seller for whom we would be the ideal buyer

Seeking committed, full time operators
Seeking flexibility in the deal structure
In an industry we consider to be attractive

Positive long term growth and profitability prospects
but we are ‘industry-agnostic’: business & seller properties are primary
We have a preliminary list of industries we like

However, we are primarily focused on the right business and seller properties

We are a second generation snack food manufacturing company located in Ipoh looking to grow our business and become the market leader by a long shot. Currently we are leading in number of products, total production, the vertical and horizontal steps involved in manufacturing and team dynamics. We started as a grinding mill more than 30 years ago and supplied raw materials to the snack food manufacturers. From there we went step by step to give what the customer requires until we become the largest producers here. We work to fulfil what the customer needs and wants, and a little more with a dedicated team and system which makes all this possible.

In all these years on manufacturing, we were focusing on whole sale which gives the least profit margin to us. We tried retail and export market and the margin is just amazing. So we expended our business from wholesale to retail and export but we realised that we do not have the necessary capital, infrastructure, marketing, machines and human talent to make it possible. Since we are driven by giving what the customer required, we become successful in capturing the end user market as well. We can not become the product category leader and drive the direction of the industry without some capital injection and branding tools. We can handle the manufacturing process A to Z but we are looking for a synergy partner to help us get to the top.

Contact us to get the company details and visit our factories to get a glimpse of what we are saying. We will tell our pitch, the good, the bad and the worst about our business and how we can move forward. Email me and we can talk further about this if you are interested, if not, thank you very much for your time reading this and have a great day. My email address is surentranboss@gmail.com

Thank you and terima kasih

** Our revenue is below your targeted revenue. We do have great margin and the potential to grow to a RM100 million company in few years with the right investor/partner.
