How have they been valued ?
By the seller, at fair market value.

• Well known in the market place • Stable work force with many years’ service • Products well regarded • Well trained service teams able to maintain units • Although two unions are represented in the work place, we have no problems with the unions primarily because of a Trust in which all workers are beneficiaries

• Constant cash flow problems • Premises too small when very busy

• Business in other African countries especially Botswana, Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia • We expect an uptick in business in RSA because of the political changes

• Increase in the strength of the rand (makes importing from the East easier for competition) • Increasing steel prices because of protection of the steel manufacturer by government (lack of competition) • Where customers are fully black owned, and therefore usually cash-strapped, we need to be careful about vetting them for credit worthiness and for technical knowledge to ensure a good outcome with their customers

What is the reason for the sale?
Although the sellers are available to stay on as Consultants to the new owner, the reason for the sale is that they wish to retire.
