Kenya pulls Sh325b in private funding

German heavy machinery make Liebheer is setting up a SH23 billlion Kenya registered the highest number of regional private equity (PE) deals last year, defying a volatile exchange rate environment and high interest rates. According to data from the African Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (ACVA), Kenya remained a favourite in terms of the value of deals signed in East Africa. Out of a total deal value of $4.5 billion (Sh450 billion) spread across Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda and Rwanda last year, Kenya accounted for 71 per cent of the financing, raking in $3.25 billion (Sh325 billion) in paid capital and enterprise value. �East Africa has made significant strides in recent years to become a region that facilitates ease of business and investment across its borders,� the report said. �The results of this emphasis are clear to see in the value of deals done, that have a regional focus rather than a single country within East Africa.� It added, however, that the number of single-country deals still exceeds regional deals, indicating that larger deals tend to be regionally focused, while smaller deals are single-country focused.

Kenya leads region in construction projects

Kenya leads the East African region in terms of mega construction projects. The country has 20 ongoing large projects followed by Ethiopia at 12. East Africa holds 20 per cent of all construction projects in Africa and 15 per cent in dollar value at $57.5 billion (Sh 5.8 trillion) in 2015, which is a slight fall from $60.7 billion (Sh6.2 trillion) in 2014. Basic infrastructure projects, transport and energy, are top on the Kenyan development agenda, with transport taking the lion's share of 51 per cent and energy at 30 per cent. The figures were released yesterday by consultancy firm Deloitte East Africa in a report titled Africa Construction Trends 2015. Kenya's standard railway project (SGR) is the fourth most expensive project in the region, gobbling up $3.8 billion (Sh386 billion at current rates), with Tanzania's port at Bagamoyo coming top at a cost of $11 billion (Sh1.119 trillion). The report also indicates Kenya is experiencing growth in the retail sector, where hotel space, modern office parks, entertainment and lifestyle facilities are experiencing a boom due to expansion of towns and cities and a growing middle class.

Dow Chemicals: we are here to help spur Kenya's manufacturing sector

Kenya needs to invest more in reliable energy and infrastructure to spur growth in the manufacturing sector.
Ross McLean, the Africa president at Dow Chemical Company, a US multinational that manufactures specialty chemicals, said Kenya is well placed to do this as it is endowed with access to a good market given its economic dominance in East Africa. The availability of human capital also gives the country an advantage against its sub-Saharan Africa peers, Mr McLean added. “A robust manufacturing sector will create a multiplier effect that will lead to job creation,” he said at a stakeholders’ forum in Nairobi last week as the company sought to make its presence in the country known. Dow has been in Kenya for five years, but its business-to-business model has seen it largely lurk in the shadows, as it does not directly interact with retailers.
