Utilising profits to reward stakeholders and kick start rural investment.


Each project will pay a percentage of its net profits into a community development fund. The fund will be managed by a diverse section of local elected representatives to include women and vulnerable groups. Governance will be overseen.

It is important for local communities to take ownership of any development initiatives to establish a lasting legacy. Matched contributions to this fund will be sought from the other stakeholders such as the local government and DFIs or IFIs involved in the project. It is expected that funds will be used to run local social services.


Economic value will be created for all the Company's stakeholders. Debt financing institutions benefit from generous insured returns on their capital. Cornerstone equity investors and public shareholders will benefit from a premium in the share price once the Company establishes operations and moves to a senior exchange.

A dividend policy will be established as soon as significant free cashflows warrant a distribution, increasing the share price and liquidity as well as returning cash to investors. Local governments are invited to become shareholders in a public private partnership model, as well as benefiting from tax revenues.


The communities that retake control once leases expire will benefit from substantial gains in the capital value of the land which has been developed into fully productive farmland from low value wasteland. As the viability of commercial farming in West Africa is proven with large-scale parcels of land brought into productive maturity, these capital gains will grow.

Pioneering the viability of commercial farming in certain West African countries will attract further international investment into the agricultural sector and kick start rural development.
