Jaltech Pre-IPO Investments

Pre-IPO EXPOSURE IN HIGH GROWTH, DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION COMPANIES

Jaltech Equity Capital Investments is an investment vehicle that offers South African investors access to US-based companies which are seeking to publicly list on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ. This form of investment is commonly referred to as a pre-Initial Public Offering (Pre-IPO) investment and the objective is to invest in shares in a private company, usually at a discount, prior to listing on a stock exchange.

Jaltech Pre-IPO investments seek to generate a gross return multiple of 2-3x the initial investment amount over a five-year term.

Our investment mandate provides an avenue for investors to get exposure to US-based Pre-IPO companies, each of which meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum valuation of $1 billion
  • Minimum trading life of 5 years
  • Aspiration for public listing within 1 to 3 years

What is a Pre-IPO investment?

A Pre-IPO investment is an investment in a private company that has an aspiration within the near to medium term to list on a stock exchange.

An opportunity exists to invest in these private companies prior to their listing. These opportunities arise as existing shareholders in these private companies seek to use the Pre-IPO secondary market to realise some gains, realise liquidity, or to lower their exposure.
