Using its international network of contacts GreenBank seeks to identify and invest in the global businesses of tomorrow. These will tend to be scalable fast-growing companies whose product is easily purchased worldwide and which can operate internationally.
In addition to investing in these exciting globally scalable businesses, GreenBank mitigates its overall investment risk by also acquiring minority or majority stakes in established companies with proven profitability and cash flow, which in turn will assist GreenBank’s overall cashflow and ability to finance a progressive dividend policy.
In order to add asset backing to GreenBank’s balance sheet, the Company also invests in real estate and natural resource opportunities which have the potential to provide exceptional returns.
This blended approach of delivering exponential growth coupled with proven cashflow and asset backing sets GreenBank apart as an insightful and formidable investor, focused on delivering world class returns for its shareholders.
GreenBank management has decades of experience in public listings. The public listing enables private companies to gain access to capital and offers liquidity to investors
GreenBank aims to list companies on the CSE, the London and New York Stock Exchanges and to dual list them on other international exchanges including the Frankfurt Boerse.
Pre IPO Funding
Once a client company has decided, and is qualified, to list on a public market, there may be a need for some interim pre-IPO funding, including the payment of listing fees and professional advice.
GreenBank is adept at sourcing and providing specialist bridge funding to ensure the listing process is as stress free as possible for all parties.
GreenBank also makes longer term private equity investments in a range of private companies.
Private Equity investments are usually reserved for major investors with access to the opportunities offered by the larger investment banks. Smaller investors are “shut-out” of such deals. By investing in GreenBank investors have indirect access to a portfolio of private equity investments.
Mergers & Acquisitions
By accessing the public markets, GreenBank investee companies have the ability to use their publicly listed shares as an acquisition tool to expand their businesses by strategic transactions.
Further, the Mergers and Acquisition experience of GreenBank directors can also facilitate private acquisition transactions.
Reverse mergers are transactions in which a private company merges with a public company and becomes the dominant part of the enlarged business.
In many cases the post-merger company changes its business focus to that of its new subsidiary. GreenBank management have facilitated numerous reverse merger transactions on multiple exchanges ranging from the CSE, to NASDAQ, to AMEX, to the AIM and Main markets of the London Stock Exchange.
Private companies often need to be assisted with both funding and management expertise.
When GreenBank makes an investment in a portfolio business, the GreenBank directors take one or more board positions in the portfolio company. GreenBank then provides the expertise and funding needed to develop the business further. It effectively “incubates” companies to the point where they can graduate to a public listing.
Companies can sometimes get into corporate difficulties due to unforeseen events or lack of finance.
The GreenBank team has the experience to provide solutions that can either recapitalize or restructure the corporate entity. GreenBank can assist with problems such as debt renegotiation, redomicile of the corporation to a more favorable jurisdiction, or just general corporate “clean-up” issues, all of which can augment and streamline the growth process.
All companies require cash to survive. Companies do not become bankrupt due to lack of assets or profits, but lack of cash. GreenBank specialises in providing liquidity solutions for public and private companies.
For public companies, GreenBank provide a range of services from investment to active principal trading in client company shares, as well as a robust communication strategy designed to deliver enhanced levels of investor engagement and therefore increased volumes of daily trading in client company shares.
