Private equity value creation in Africa. Africa is experiencing exceptional economic growth, a rising middle class and relative political stability – themes that make the continent an increasingly attractive investment focus.
A burgeoning, yet viable, private equity market has emerged. Although the market is in its infancy, key themes are already developing, including more robust exit activity than many might expect. Exit activity and performance Despite a misperception that exits are hard to achieve in Africa, we recorded 118 exits by PE firms between 2007 and 2012. In addition, many other sales occur privately. We gathered returns data on 62 exits, which shows that strategic and operational improvements generated returns almost double that of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange All Share Index.
Financial services was the most active exit sector (23%), but other sectors such as food and beverage (9%) and telecommunications (8%) also made good showings, illustrating the rise of the African consumer.

AVCA Research - AVCA. This joint research piece, looking at value creation through exit deals across Africa, provides an answer to the commonly asked question “are there exits in Africa?”
The continent’s stock markets, other than the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, are still very small and relatively illiquid, and the intermediary networks remain far from complete across the region. As a result, a widely held perception is that exits are hard to achieve and that therefore they are few in number. However, our analysis points to a higher level of exit activity than might be expected.
Between 2007 and 2012, we recorded a total of 118 realizations by African private equity fund managers. Africa’s PE firms are clearly demonstrating a good capacity of finding ways to realise value.
