The Fund makes private equity investments in equity or equity-linked securities in mid-small companies in the ASEAN region and across all industries.
We favour opportunities where we can contribute to the growth of the company – this can be by way of bringing in Japanese synergies such as co-investments, business alliances and exit to Japanese strategics; and/ or utilising the network of our diversified ASEAN team to facilitate company’s growth beyond their domestic markets and into others parts of the region.
The Fund targets core ASEAN Region, which includes Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines; and also Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos on an opportunistic basis.
Primarily growth capital and minority stake investments. Opportunistically, we will consider buyouts, PIPEs, turnaround and mezzanine investments. Our typical cheque size is USD 10 million to USD 30 million, with preferred investment holding period of 3 to 5 years. Exit strategies include trade sale, IPO and buy-back.
