StratLink is delighted to emerge second in the category of Financial Advisors (Deal Flow) in East Africa in the 2018 DealMakers Africa Award. This award comes in light of, among others, two successful deals in which StratLink served as the exclusive sell-side adviser. In Uganda and Malawi, StratLink advised Euroflex Ltd and Vitafoam Ltd, respectively, in their sale to Catalyst Principal Partners. In Kenya, StratLink advised Artcaffé Coffee and Bakery in its sale of a majority stake to Emerging Capital Partners. In both transactions, StratLink was tasked with undertaking valuation of the business venture, due diligence, transaction negotiation with potential investors and the eventual capital raise. In its capacity as the sole advisor, StratLink was responsible for the business ventures’ investment readiness including preparation of relevant documents such as the investment memorandum, sharing the same with potential investors and responding to questions regarding the business and its growth prospects. We would like to extend a warm and hearty appreciation to all our clients who continue to entrust us with the responsibility of being part of their growth story and help bring their dreams and aspirations to fruition.
