What is the relationship between APS COMMODITIES SA BENIN and LE SAUT TOGO?

APS COMMODITIES SA BENIN was a shareholder in Le SAUT TOGO before selling these shares to MEA Capital Investment.

Our Approach

The privileged relationships of its leaders with the business world allow it to benefit from the support of the main players: sovereign wealth funds, Western investment funds, powerful industrial groups, financial institutions, private investors, business angels, etc.

In terms of investment, MEA intervenes directly through the use of its own resources. It can also act in association with other investors in two forms: mandated investors and independent investors.

  • Mandated investors entrust their funds to MEA, which combines them with its own resources to invest them. It is a kind of FCI (Common Investment Fund) managed under mandate by MEA. The role of associate in funded projects is fully delegated to MEA. The remuneration of the funds of these investors is the same as the total return on investments of MEA, in proportion to the dates of delivery of the funds for the last financial year. The participations are negotiable allowing investors, subject to payment of an exit fee, to sell their capital to other investors
  • Independent investors, unlike mandated investors who delegate their roles as associates to MEA, intervene in all stages of financing from the study phase to the start-up phase as well as the monitoring of funded projects. They invest directly as partners and exercise all the rights and assume all the duties arising from their investments.
Investments target the main activity sectors: agriculture, fishing, health, training, tourism, industry, energy, new technologies, environment, transport.

Particular care is given to projects that will advance Africa technically and technologically to ensure their sustainability and promote them as examples to follow.
