PROVEN Inks Stake In Roberts Manufacturing
Further to the announcement, of an agreement with Massy Properties (Barbados) Ltd., a company within the Massy Group, to purchase its 50.5% interest in Roberts Manufacturing Co. Limited (“Roberts”) in January 2021; PROVEN Investments Limited (PIL/PROVEN) is pleased to announce that the transaction is now complete with the requisite regulatory approvals.
The acquisition of the stake in Roberts, a leading manufacturer of animal nutrition, edible fats and oils in Barbados supplying diversified consumer goods to markets in the Caribbean, Central America, and the U.S.A.; represents for PROVEN a demonstrable success in delivering on one of its value levers for topline revenue growth and will also expand its business in the Real Sector.
As a pioneering Caribbean focused Private Equity and Real Estate investment company, PROVEN’s Private Equity business model is built on two key pillars – Financial Services and Real Sector. This posits well for diversification, business model resilience and stakeholder value and return.
Christopher Williams, Co-Founder and CEO PROVEN Management Limited, Investment Managers for PROVEN Investments Limited outlined what the acquisition meant as a crucial business strategy “Finalizing this purchase sets us on a path to realizing not only regional development and expansion in the real sector; but allows us to support a business that is critical for food security during and post the pandemic.

We see tremendous opportunities for growth.”
