Origo Partners PLC (“Origo”) is a private equity investment company, focused exclusively on growth opportunities created by the urbanization and industrialization of China. Origo is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: OPP).
Origo’s investment strategy is focused on the natural resources and renewable energy/clean-tech sectors. We generally prefer Chinese profitable expansion-stage companies; we also consider earlier stage-opportunities, particularly in the metal and mining space.
Origo has developed a significant presence in Mongolia to supply Chinese demand for natural resources. In Mongolia our focus is on coking coal, copper, gold, iron ore and related infrastructure opportunities.
We typically invest US$3-20 million over the life-cycle of a company. We take both minority and majority stakes, depending on the nature of any particular opportunity. Our targeted holding period for investments varies depending on the type of investment, but is usually between 3-5 years.
Our investment philosophy is to drive value appreciation through active ownership, including seconding management and providing support across sales, accounting and financial management, fund-raising and strategic development.
