Company objective and business strategy
The Fintech Sector
The Company has been established to make an acquisition of a target company or businesses in the fintech sector.
Business strategy – acquisitions
The Company has received a number of enquiries from potential target companies and the Board are in the process of reviewing these. The Board believes that the identification of a target company and the due diligence to be undertaken before making an offer can be made is likely to take time.
The acquisition strategy of the Company will be focused towards identification and acquisition of companies or business operating in the Fintech sector and can be summarised as follows:
- Location preferably Europe
- Activities – cross-border payments, blockchain, peer to peer lending platforms, crowd funding platforms, Fintech and FX trading
- Strong executive management team in place
- Valuation size in the £20m to £30m range
The Company will however consider opportunities that do not satisfy all the above criteria.
