Hulisani Creates Energy Investment Opportunities in South Africa

Africa is a continent of untapped potential harbouring exciting investment opportunities, particularly in the energy sector. An influx of foreign investment into Africa is pointing towards a new era of growth and development and today the rate of return on this investment on the continent is higher than in any other developing region. Hulisani is focusing on the remarkable opportunities to build the energy sector into the cornerstone of Africa’s economic growth.

Once you have electricity, the more you have, the more you want.

South Africa generates about 34 Gigawatts of electricity annually. The total electricity generation of Africa is approximately 160 Gigawatts and it is estimated that by 2030, South Africa will need 85 Gigawatts of power and Africa 610 Gigawatts (International Renewable Energy Agency Report – 2015).

This growth is exponential – energy production being the fastest growing sector in the economy and will need investment in order to unlock its true potential.

The provision of sustainable energy attracts and promotes the industrialisation of a region or country and has a multiplier effect on its economy resulting in job creation and a reduction in poverty.

Between 2010 and 2016, nearly 27,000 jobs have been created as a by-product of new energy production in South Africa.  It is envisaged that many thousands of jobs will be created by this explosion in energy investment opportunities across the continent.

Listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange  – New Investment Opportunities

Our decision to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange  was based on the following:

access to capital
liquidity
diversification
reputation, confidence and credibility

Institutions such as pension funds, asset managers and fund managers invest with us through the purchase of shares. This also applies to the “man in the street” who is looking for a long-term investment. The advantage for the client is that they are able to exit the investment by selling shares at market value. This gives them more liquidity rather than trying to sell fixed assets.

It is important to note that further shares issued will be offered at the market price ruling at the time of issue so that existing shares are not diluted.

“Sell the fruit and not the tree”.

This philosophy comes in to play as we attract long term permanent capital and have the ability to raise additional capital more easily by offering shares rather than selling assets.
