Shareholding

Young Africa HOLDINGS (Pty) Ltd is based in South Africa, but aims to invest into businesses across Africa. Because of its commitment and purpose to contribute to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BB-BEE), issuing of shares are subject to ensuring that the company remains a 51% black-owned and 51% women-owned company, with at least a Level 2 BB-BEE status.

Furthermore, the founding shareholders reserve the right to retain a share of 26%, in order to ensure that the original intention of the company is upheld into the future. Entrepreneurs, employees and consultants related to any of the businesses in which Young Africa HOLDINGS invests, or which partner with the company and any of its subsidiaries are given the opportunity to own shares. This offers an innovative exit strategy for businesses related to the holdings company, while promoting ownership of the various businesses by their respective employees.

Beyond these two groups, shares are available for purchase by any party interested in supporting the overall Young Africa VISION and objectives.
