Fund Overview

The GAA Sustainable Resources Fund (Series 2) SP (the “Fund”) aims to help provide a solution to the rapidly increasing European, Asian and, indeed, world demand for biomass fuel.

The Fund is offering investors the chance to participate in the 50% ownership of a Malaysian based Project Company, GAA Palm Power Solutions Sdn Bhd, designed to produce large volumes of biomass fuel from the waste material of a largely ignored natural resource found in abundance across Malaysia, created when replanting oil palm plantations in Malaysia.

Rather than being left to rot in the plantation, the Oil Palm Trunk ("OPT") is transported to one of our strategically located pellet mill facilities and processed (using specialist heavy duty mobile equipment) into a fibre fuel for domestic use. The same OPT fibre can also be converted into biomass fuel pellets for international consumption.

Locally, the processed fibre can be burned by companies in the cement, brick, rubber glove and paper industries as an alternative to fossil fuels; internationally, the biomass pellets can be used to fuel power stations and other large industrial plants.The dried fibre can also be converted into fertiliser or a medium for growing agricultural products such as mushrooms.


Investment Strategy

The Project Company aims to attract up to US$20 million on a 7 year, closed ended basis from the Fund. The Fund is on offer until 31 January 2014 but could close earlier should capacity be taken up before then.

The Project Company has been established to generate a net profit from the sale of domestic fibre and international pellets, with a targeted company value of more than US$40 million by the end of 2022 based on projected earnings. The Fund will sell out its position in the Company at the end of its term (or earlier if a buyer comes forward before then).

All investors will benefit from the Fund’s 50% shareholding in the Project Company from both an income and growth perspective.
