Description of the business
KRM22 seeks to achieve its investment objective through the long term investment in, or acquisition of, private and public companies. The Company acquires or invests in companies that have some of, or all of, the following features:
- Market leading software offering: a software product used by customers
- Customer revenues: the business has a recurring revenue generating customer base
- Subject matter expert: the business founder, CEO or other key members of staff have expertise in a relevant risk management aspect or a technology
- Capital markets focus: the product fits into one of KRM22’s five key risk domains being Enterprise Risk, Market Risk, Compliance Risk, Operational Risk and Technology Risk
- Risk management focus: the product helps customers manage risk in one of the five risk domains identified by KRM22
- Acquisition price: a valuation for the deal which the Directors believe will deliver capital appreciation value for investors
- Where the Board believes that there are good growth opportunities through strategic and operational guidance and providing a platform to scale.
The Directors use their multiple years of experience and successful track records in the software and technology industry, as well as proven managerial and business experience, to drive business transformation and growth in the Investee Companies. KRM22 invests and takes controlling stakes in businesses (or in minority stakes) which are intended to create value for investors. Investments are made using cash and equity which may also include earn-out payments, subject to the Investee Company achieving certain key financial performance conditions. Investments may be made using debt where the Board concludes this is more appropriate. Each acquisition or investment is operated independently of each other. However, the Board helps each investment scale, using the expertise of the Board, as well as capitalising on cross-selling opportunities across Investee Companies customer base, deriving synergies and efficiencies by sharing technical expertise within the portfolio. Over time, the Board creates appropriate procedures to enhance returns by sharing some services across the Investee Companies while keeping them operationally separate.
As part of KRM22’s investment policy, the Board exercises appropriate control and strategic influence over the day-to-day operational management of any Investee Company. The Board and the senior management team provides strategic, technology and business support.
There is no set holding period for investments. However, it is the Company’s intention to hold its investments on a long-term basis. The investments made by the Company may take a variety of legal forms; for example it may acquire complete control or take both a majority stake of a business or a minority stake of a business, or form a joint venture or partnership. The Company expects to raise additional external funding when required to achieve its investment objective and to make further investments.
