Global AgriSystem Private Limited
has received funding from
Nine Rivers Capital
Corporate Finance Associates
Situation: Global AgriSystem Private Limited, is among India’s largest agribusiness firms focusing on agriculture and the food sector. They retained CFA India to assist them with raising capital to expand their business. Based on the capital expenditure nature of the business model, the initial plan called for a substantial influx of capital which would have lead to significant dilution.
Solution: CFA India conducted detailed management meetings to understand their growth strategy and use of funds. They ultimately suggested recasting financials and suggested building in a mix of capex and lease models for their procurement and distribution centers. This strategy reduced Global AgriSystem’s funding requirements dramatically, moderated risk and stabilized the business model, making the company an attractive investment opportunity for Private Equity Groups. Within a six week timeframe the funding requirements were met.
