The Company is always looking for what it believes is the best structure for the Company, its partners and the community in which it operates. Although the Company and People Helping Each Other (“PHEO”) had previously executed a joint venture agreement, it was mutually agreed that both parties could benefit from a Share Exchange Agreement. The Company believes this new ownership could potentially increase share-holder value and concurrently benefit PHEO. Once finalized the Company would own 70% of Holdings Enterprises Durables (“HED”) located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The assets of HED includes Padouk and Sapele hardwood timber species for harvesting within its 502,000 Hectares of high market value timber (according to the April 15, 2018 International Tropical Timber Organization report). Additionally, the new direct ownership in HED will add more than 2,500,000 Hectares of timber for conservation to SIH’s assets (for complete details see “Share Exchange Agreement” on page 33 of the Company’s Offering Circular). These assets will be valued after the offering closes and will be reflected on the Company’s balance sheet at that time.
There are excellent opportunities for the company to provide a bridge to companies that aren’t able to get bank loans, but have revenue that can be maintained and increased. Due to the importance of the church in many of these communities, the faith community will also be sought as collaborators for this initiative, which will include: maintaining and expanding businesses that have reached their sunset without a succession plan, providing important services for the community, and developing businesses that build both self-esteem and entrepreneurial know-how, while concurrently creating socially responsible profits for the company.
