Preferred investment regions are the mining investment-friendly jurisdictions located in any of Sub-Saharan Africa, North America, Europe, and Australia. Minerals covered are base metals (non-ferrous industrial metals), battery minerals (lithium, graphite, cobalt, manganese and nickel), precious metals (gold and silver), PGMs (platinum, palladium, rhodium, osmium, iridium, and ruthenium), uranium, iron ore (hematite and magnetite), and diamonds (pipe and alluvial mining). We strictly consider only mining assets with world-class and high-grade ore deposits, and well defined mineralization.
C. OIL AND GAS
This is an energy sector that comprises of three areas, viz. upstream, midstream and downstream. Financing projects in this industry comprises of highly complex transactions, and therefore before undertaking to assisting clients to raising capital and investment for such projects, PBC will thoroughly assess and evaluate the structure, financing options, and risks typically associated with the oil and gas industry. Typical financing instruments will include reserve-based lending (RBL) where debt facilities will be raised against 1P (development) or 2P (producing) reserves, development finance, pre-export finance, equity bridge loans (EBLs), revolving credit facilities, gas project finance, hybrid financings and hedging, and others.
D. GROWTH EXPANSION AND M&A TRANSACTIONS
Mergers and acquisitions are part of the life cycle of any business, and often help businesses to expand, acquire new expertise, move into new areas, or improve their output with one simple transaction. M&A transactions are normally financed through equity and/or debt instruments, or through company reserves. Finding the right financing structure for an acquisition can sometimes be the most challenging part of the process particularly with respect to how it is structured, and Prime Business Capital will either invest to finance the transaction, or assist clients to finance the transaction through capital raising.
