Makhathini Cotton Gin
We were appointed by SiVEST SA (Pty) Ltd to develop a financial model for the refurbishment of a cotton gin in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
The financial model we developed forecasted capital costs and projected future profitability as an outcome of the refurbishment of the gin (repairs were considered critical to the gin’s function and ability to receive crop). In addition, we wrote a financial chapter for the business plan, which included a risk assessment and an evaluation of the investment rationale. Following the completion of the financial model, we provided recommendations on necessary actions to ensure the gin's long-term sustainability and profitability.
