Our company did not lease but own the quarry site. Lease always poses unpredictable challenges, some of which may kill the project. Our site is located along a major road that is being constructed and offers ready market. We have good access to the north and south, as we are in the middle belt. Local market also has a heavy demand, with few suppliers. We will maintain good Government patronage through our efficiency with excellent technical support. The other two major operators are less well located with additional cost of transportation for their products. Additionally, though not so strong, gender may be an advantage for me as the Company Director, in keeping with Government policy.
Rationale for the deal
The construction of the road that links the northern with the southern parts of the country has just resumed. There is a heavy demand for granites but based on scarcity of operating capital there are only few suppliers. The sale of granite is a lucrative business. This project is timely. The policy direction of Government is supportive. There are efforts by other market players to site more quarries along the link road but far away from our site. Funding appears to be a major constraint for most market players. We are collaborating with an experienced engineer who has managed both granite and marble production previously.
Use of financing
Investors' capital will be used solely for purchase of a basic set of quarry equipment: driller, crusher, vibrating screen, conveyors, vehicle, loader, generator, etc. Details are available later.
Two rounds of financing will be required.
Opportunity for the investor
40% shares will be offered to the Investor.
A hand-on investor is preferred.
Direct equipment purchase will be made so the usual 2 installments required by the manufacturers is desired.
