Exit

Kinyeti Venture Capital invests with the aim of making a profit for our investors. However, before we make an investment, we must consider how, and under what circumstances, to cash in (exit) our investment. This may be done when an investment reaches a more mature stage, or when the period of the investment comes to a natural end.

We focus on how to exit even before we make an investment because we intend to be a catalyst for the development of the private sector in South Sudan.

Therefore, where we and the entrepreneur can agree that the business has reached a level of maturity that negates the need for our active involvement, we are ready to exit the investment to support another project that needs our patient risk capital.

We structure exits depending on the investment opportunity, its specific peculiarities, and the entrepreneur.

This, in part, is governed by the investment instrument. Typically, for equity and equity-like investments, we will exit after a period of three to seven years, depending on the nature of, and stage at which we invested in the business.

We may structure our exit as a sale of the stake we own back to the entrepreneur. We may, should the entrepreneur agree, also sell our stake to another investor.

For instruments that are loans or have loan features, we expect them to be self-liquidating, achieving our exit and returns upon maturity.
