Zeder was es­tab­lished in 2006 to in­ject un­listed, highly prof­itable agri­cul­tural sec­tor as­sets into an in­vestable en­tity. Hav­ing re­cently ven­tured into op­er­at­ing as­sets with the ac­qui­si­tion of a ma­jor­ity stake in a Zam­bian farm, Zeder has shown its in­ten­tions of tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­ni­ties Africa has to of­fer the agri­cul­tural sec­tor. Zeder’s as­sets are man­aged by PSG, which has proven over time to be an ex­cep­tion­ally shrewd in­vest­ment strate­gist. Along­side this, we be­lieve Zeder is at­trac­tively priced on a sum of the parts ba­sis, with the port­fo­lio value ex­ceed­ing the mar­ket price by a wide mar­gin. With global de­mand for agri­cul­tural prod­ucts and food ex­pected to con­tinue grow­ing over the next decade, Zeder is well set to ben­e­fit from this struc­tural driver.

4group re­cently con­cluded the ac­qui­si­tion of the Evan­der gold field from Har­mony, which has the ef­fect of im­me­di­ately dou­bling gold pro­duc­tion.

Pan-African Re­sources is man­aged by an ex­pe­ri­enced team with a sound track record and in­ti­mate knowl­edge of its as­sets. The group has a strong bal­ance sheet, is cash gen­er­a­tive and boasts prof itable un­der­ly­ing busi­nesses with good earn­ings prospects.
