CRITERIA & PROCESS
Navegar invests in businesses with a proven track record and strong growth prospects. It can invest up to USD 18 million and will typically hold a minority stake in the business.
Navegar employs a 2-phase investment evaluation process:
Following Navegar’s investment, Navegar will appoint members to the Board of Directors and when appropriate, work with management to support the company’s objectives.
We conduct an initial review of the relevant market, the business opportunity and the company. During this time, we form a view on the company’s growth prospects and our ability to support the company’s goals. A positive Initial Review process will result in the submission of a Letter of Intent (LOI) containing the proposed terms for a Navegar investment.
Once the parties have agreed on the LOI, we will conduct due diligence – a detailed commercial, financial and legal review of the business. Due diligence takes between 2-3 months. If our original assessment of the business opportunity is validated, Navegar will submit a binding offer to invest in the business.
