Project scope and objective
The project consists of an investment of up to US$10 million in Aqua Capital Fund III (the “Fund”), a fund with equity or equity-linked instruments positions across the value chain in the agribusiness and food industry, with a focus on sustainable and transformational businesses, and a regional geographic scope including the Americas, with at least 80% invested in LAC, and Brazil potentially representing 50% of the overall allocation. The Fund will be managed by Aqua Capital (the “Fund Manager”) and has a target size of US$400 million and a term of 10 years, with a possible extension of two years. The current pipeline includes over 30 target companies, and the focus will be of Buy&Build and growth equity investments, which is consistent with the investment strategy that made Aqua Capital a reference private equity (PE) firm for Agribusiness & Food in the region. The Fund will promote digitalization, sustainability, climate change mitigation and regional integration in the Ag & Food Industry, by combining equity investment and strategic expertise to boost portfolio companies’ local and international expansion and to increase their operational efficiency; ultimately it will also foster job creation and impact on local communities and small farmers.
