Renewable Energy in Central
A private equity fund was keen to invest in the local renewable energy sector and had identified a potential target. However they were aware of alleged negative rumours associated with the target company’s management.
R2G contacted a variety of local assets and sources to develop reputational information on the principles and company. In addition, analysts undertook a thorough local language public record review, including scrutinising local media and corporate information.
R2G identified a number of major red flags including links to criminal groups. The fund was accordingly able to exit the deal at an early stage, mitigating any reputational or financial risks it might have suffered.
