South Africa: Fairfax Africa completes investment in Consolidated Infrastructure Group

  • Written by  Bob Koigi

Fairfax Africa Holdings Corporation has acquired 178,995,353 ordinary shares of Consolidated Infrastructure Group Limited at a price of ZAR4.00 per share for aggregate consideration of ZAR715.9 million, approximately $51.2 million at current exchange rates.

The shares were acquired in connection with the closing of the CIG rights offer, which was previously disclosed on May 18, 2018. The CIG equity investment is in addition to Fairfax Africa’s previously announced ZAR300 million (approximately $21.5 million at current exchange rates) secured convertible loan to CIG.

Following completion of the investment, Fairfax Africa (and its affiliates) own approximately 49.7% of CIG’s ordinary shares (or 56.1% assuming the full conversion of the Convertible Loan).

Fairfax Africa is an investment holding company. Its investment objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation, while preserving capital, by investing in public and private equity securities and debt instruments in Africa and African businesses or other businesses with customers, suppliers or business primarily conducted in, or dependent on, Africa.
