In line with our mandate to help unlock investment opportunities in Africa and other frontier markets, StratLink acted as the exclusive sell-side advisor to Art Caffé Coffee and Bakery, a restaurant group with multiple brand concepts throughout Kenya, in the transaction to sell a majority stake to Emerging Capital Partners (ECP). StratLink provided comprehensive market research focusing on the nuances of the food and beverage sector in Kenya, changing demographics and what they portend for both opportunity and risk in the sector as well as the company’s brand positioning in an increasingly competitive market. StratLink provided extensive due diligence and financial analysis of the business leading to the identification and negotiations with potential investors. This is yet another transaction through which StratLink has deployed the blend of exhaustive on-the-ground market research and robust capital raising support to an Africa based company.
