Project Description
The proposal is for an IFC equity investment in Leopard Bangladesh Fund L.P. (the “Fund”). The Fund will seek to make equity or equity-related investments in mid-sized companies engaged in a broad range of high-growth sectors, including but not limited to agro-industry and food processing, manufacturing, construction materials, financial services, and other service industries such as health care, education and information technology. Investment priority will be given to providing expansion capital to companies with strong growth potential or are undervalued. The Fund will seek to be an active investor, providing guidance in areas critical to growth and expansion, including business strategy, management development, capital structure and governance.
