Ziad abdelnour-Our Investment criteria and Interests for 2016 and beyond

Following my joining the board of Elate Partners, – a Chinese investment group backed by large institutional, strategic and wealthy individual investors from China – a lot of you have been asking me about the kind of deals Elate would be interested to invest in in partnership with Blackhawk.
Without further delays, here is the short list as per below
  •  Western Investment:
    • Hard asset-based deals that have “intrinsic values” of their own, for example mines, oil field, certain real estate;
    • Businesses with potential synergy with China;
    • Generally shy away from businesses that rely on services for revenue due to a lack of expertise
  • China Expansion:
  •  Technology-based and other businesses that could be transferred to China sometime in the future (regardless whether the US operation is kept intact or not);
Sector/Industry-Based Interests
  • Alternative energy: especially revenue-generating solar and wind farms; technologies that make solar and wind energy more efficient and cost-effective; battery and other energy storage technologies; energy harvesting;
  • Green technology: especially large-scale pollution measurement and reduction; energy efficient building technology; waste recovery/processing;
  • High-end manufacturing: especially those having to do with industry 4.0/smart manufacturing, robotics; high-tech automobile;
  • New materials: especially nanotechnology, graphene; advanced composite materials;
  • Life sciences, medical and biotechnology: especially late-stage new drugs; mobile health; senior care; non-invasive diagnostics; advanced medical equipment; cancer treatments;
  • Modern agriculture: especially food safety and traceability; IT/internet-integrated farming/transportation/distribution; organic and virus-free fertilizer; diet-friendly farming; “big health”; agriculture e-commerce;
Aerospace and defense: especially unmanned ariel vehicles (not subject to US export control); piston- and turboprop- general aircraft manufacturing; piston-, turboprop- and diesel general aircraft engine manufacturing; full avionics systems manufacturing; existing FAA and EASA type certificates; microwave communications devices and systems; military- and security-grade display technologies.
