EVCC is the only active investment vehicle in Egypt with the mandate of investing in distressed companies. The company was founded, as a response to macro-economic circumstances such as the currency floatation in 2016, with focus on the support, growth and development of distressed SME’s in the industrial sector of the Egyptian market. The team specializes in identifying high-growth companies restricted by financial squeezes and are experts at actively investing in them to realize their growth potential and to achieve their true value. This is accomplished through financial and operational restructuring plans performed by in-house investment professionals with a proven track-record, in close collaboration with management of our portfolio companies.
EVCC invests through various mechanisms (equity, debt and/or convertible debt) depending on the investee company’s needs and position. Distressed companies will often have viable businesses at the core but face issues such as financial squeezes, temporary operational difficulties, over-leveraged balance sheets, or managerial shortcomings, which could be induced by macro-circumstances beyond their control.
As EVCC continues to successfully establish its investment methodology in the Egyptian Market, the demand for its service amplifies due to further straining macro-events, namely the Covid-19 pandemic and its repercussions.
