The Rohatyn Group (“TRG”), a specialized global asset management company with a focus on real assets and investment solutions in emerging economies, announced an investment in the East African company Kensta Group (“Kensta”), which works in the region’s paper and print industries.
The investment aims to support Kensta’s five-year strategic plan implementation by allowing it to expand its production capabilities, diversify its product line, and finance essential working capital requirements.
Prior to TRG’s acquisition of Ethos Private Equity (“Ethos”), which concluded on April 1, 2023, this investment was made. The printing and packaging business in East Africa has relied on Kensta Group for years to deliver reliable and creative products and solutions.
“Our support is anticipated to contribute to the creation of vital new manufacturing capacity and related jobs”.
