I invite you to become a shareholder in Anchor Capital Investments Limited.
Anchor has recently been established as an investment company with the objective of achieving above market returns to both the Company and its shareholders. The Company’s major investment focus is start up to medium sized entities with particular emphasis on the emerging markets in the Asia Pacific, Indian sub-continent and Middle Eastern regions.
The Company’s Directors and management have extensive investment, corporate finance and capital raising experience. They have diverse industry experience and are well qualified to implement the Company’s investment strategy and to position the Company for long term capital growth and shareholder returns.
In seeking to achieve above market returns, Anchor Capital Investments’ main objective will be to invest in or facilitate projects or businesses where the Company will take a principal role in financing arrangements and/or early business development, with the ultimate aim of taking these projects public on a recognised stock exchange. Anchor acts as an incubator for small to medium sized enterprises who otherwise have no opportunity to raise funds or be exposed to international opportunities. Through the Anchor Group, clients will gain exposure to the stock markets and access to private equity funds, hedge funds, as well as private sophisticated investors. The achievement of listed status for each project undertaken or invested in represents the Company’s main exit strategy.
The Group is mainly based in Hong Kong with offices in Australia. Anchor as the parent company of the Group will hold pre-IPO investments of up to 50% of a small to medium sized enterprises capital with investments generally between US$ 5 million and US$ 50 million.
Through Anchor’s subsidiary, Anchor Capital Limited which is based in Hong Kong, the Group also provides financial consulting services including financial analysis, listing on the Stock Exchanges, business plan development, website development, and mergers and acquisitions. Anchor Capital Ltd in Hong Kong has been operating since 2010 and profits generated by Anchor will be used to support the Group’s operations and partly fund Anchor’s investment activities. Through Anchor's operations the Company expects to identify many investment opportunities.
The Company has listed its Crest Depository Interest ("CDI’s") on the National Stock Exchange and also in January 2015 on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange where with access to European markets it will raise additional capital to make its initial investments. Anchor has to date signed a subscription agreement for an investment of up to US$ 30 million in Earthroam an Indian based mobile phone card and communications company.
Applicants for CDI’s should understand that investment in Anchor Capital Investments Limited is inherently more speculative than an investment in a company carrying on an established business where the assets or business can be subjected to independent scrutiny by independent experts whose reports would ordinarily form part of the Information Memorandum.
On behalf of the Directors, I invite you to consider this opportunity to participate in Anchor’s future. This Information Memorandum contains detailed information about the Offer and I encourage you to read it fully.
I look forward to welcoming you as a CDI Holder.
