GAIA Infrastructure Capital Limited. JSE:GAI

GAIA shares

Background of GAIA

  • GAIA Infrastructure Partners was founded in 2012 in Cape Town, for the purpose of facilitating long-term capital investment in infrastructure projects, with a primary focus on the renewable energy sector. The company’s portfolio has since been broadened to other infrastructure sectors such as transport and water.

  • GAIA Infrastructure Capital listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 2015 as a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), in order to raise capital for investing in the company’s pipeline of projects. It was one of the first SPACs to be successfully listed on the bourse. The company intends to buy its first assets within the utility scale renewable energy sector. The purpose of listing was to offer investors access to an attractive alternative asset class that can usually only be accessed through illiquid private equity investments.

  • GAIA eventually aims to be a diversified infrastructure investment company with investments in large scale energy, transport and water related infrastructure projects in South Africa, whilst providing investors with predictable, inflation link, liquid and long-term yielding investments.

  • The management function of GAIA is outsourced to GAIA Infrastructure Partners. GAIA is managed by a team of leading investment, engineering and strategy experts.

  • The company has a JSE market cap of R 500 million, but investors don’t have much of a GAIA share price history on which to base a decision to buy GAIA shares.

GAIA Shares Growth Driver

  • GAIA is still in its fledgling phase as a JSE-listed company, but aims to generate superior investor returns from emerging South African infrastructure investment opportunities, initially in the REIPPPP.

  • After a successful capital raising drive, the company announced that it had made its first purchase in 2016, by entering into an agreement with TriAlpha Specialised Investment Trust to buy a 25% interest in the Dorper Wind Farm for R 501 million. The agreement also offers the option for GAIA to invest in three other wind farm projects. Before GAIA, most infrastructure investment opportunities were available only through private equity. The company has proven that it is accessible to a range of investors, with the shareholding comprising both institutional investors and around 900 small retail investors.

  • GAIA targets a gross real investment return of +6% per annum, with dividends yield of +2.5%. The company has progressed well in its first year, with a healthy deal
    pipeline amounting to R 3 billion. The group’s investment policy includes assets that are operational, a minimum investment amount of R 200 million, minimum of 15% equity interest and acceptable third party risk exposure.

GAIA Group Investor Tip

  • GAIA hopes to capitalise on South Africa’s huge drive towards renewable energy projects. The company allows investors the rare opportunity to buy into the infrastructure investment space, which is a promising prospect. GAIA shares are a tempting buy and could yield significant long-term returns if the right investments are made within the renewable energy space. Investors have limited data to base a decision on at present, but GAIA share price is forecast to to take off on the live online stocks chart.
