Many companies reach a point during their development when they struggle to obtain additional financing to achieve their growth potential. We study capital/financing requirements together with our clients and develop a plan for raising funds from our ample network of institutional investors globally.

We have also been successful implementing creative structures that provide creditors and investors comfort. We also make sure to grow business by allowing the companies sufficient flexibility.


Most shareholders and top managers dedicate their full time while running their companies, which makes it difficult for them to quantify the value of their companies or individual businesses. Even more difficult for them is to identify which are the key drivers under their control to increase the value and to quantify the potential impact of changes. Periodic valuations of a company and measurement of key performance indicators (KPI’s) provide invaluable insights about the current status and to prepare for a potential acquisition, divestiture, merger or other game-changing decision.


At BAYI, we allow an ideal shareholding structure that depends upon the phase of the company’s life cycle to every business. We regularly help our clients to rank their businesses and to determine if a partial or total change of ownership would make sense for them.

BAYI helps to identify the most attractive counterparties (i.e. strategic partner), negotiate the best deal and bring it to completion in the shortest and most efficient possible way.


The structuring and execution of international corporate transactions has become a complex and challenging practice especially in Africa. To navigate these waters, local companies benefit from an international perspective and network like the ones BAYI brings to the table. International investors need local, reliable, experienced, objective sparring partners to evaluate and structure profitable deals before committing funds, an area in which BAYI is uniquely positioned.

BAYI is uniquely established to evaluate profitable trades and structure their investments before committing funds. Our core competency is to evaluate, execute and originate cross-border transactions by offering our clients financing products which are usually not available in their local market.

Moreover we are also specialized in leading complex transactions. We strongly believe in long term relationship development and some of our clients have been working with us for decades.

While we are sector-agnostic, BAYI has developed particularly deep sector knowledge and insight in:
