Our unique approach 

is to provide clients with effective and timely advisory services to maximise wealth by way of disposals, mergers and acquisitions, and to structure their businesses for sustainable future growth. 

Our team has experience in the following transactions: 

  • Owners of unlisted companies wishing to unlock value by selling all or part of their equity;
  • senior management teams seeking expansion through acquisitions;
  • companies in need of development finance for expansion;
  • reorganisation of capital structure (debt vs. equity);
  • entrepreneurs seeking capital for new ventures;
  • South African companies keen on entering new markets (locally and internationally);
  • foreign companies seeking investment in South Africa or Africa; and
  • compliance with black economic empowerment (BEE) regulations (formulation and implementation of BEE strategies and advisory to secure BEE-rated investors and/or funding sources).

Our corporate finance practice provides actionable advisory services on these and other transactions. Actions carried out on behalf of our clients are always supported and preceded by sound advice based on best practice. In some instances, we are retained for advisory services only, but in general, we represent the client’s interests from the start to the closing of the transaction, including project managing all the processes and stages to completion.

Our work processes are based on a systematic and disciplined approach governed by bespoke systems, and informed by a knowledge and understanding of international best practice.

Confidentiality of client information and intellectual property is a guiding principle in everything we do, and we have developed effective means of preserving information of a sensitive and/or proprietary nature.

GKA Capital specialises in unlisted companies in the mid-cap market sector, but we have successfully completed transactions for corporate and listed companies as shown in the extracts from our case files.

We take pride in providing prospective clients with references on previous deals as testament to the quality of our services.
