Brief Introduction to Company
Cyan Capital (“Cyan”) is a Pakistan focused private equity firm. We make investments in companies with high growth potential and are managed by driven entrepreneurs/management teams.
We have discovered that Pakistan is a country full of untapped potential in several high impact sectors. Limited access to capital has been one of the drivers in restricting companies in taking their businesses to the next level.
Currently, the Dawood Hercules Group (“DH”) is the Anchor Investor and first LP in Cyan with a commitment of USD 50 million. The group, with over three generations of experience in commercial and social enterprises, has investments in fertilizer, foods, energy, textile, financial services and real-estate. The group’s companies feature household names such as Engro Corporation, Hub Power Company, Elixir Securities, Inbox Business Technologies, Pebbles and Lawrencepur, among others.
Over the past few years, Cyan has developed a strong deal pipeline in high impact sectors and has made highly lucrative investments in the energy and telecommunications infrastructure sectors. Simultaneously, Cyan serves as the principal-investments firm for DH, thus overseeing, managing and providing strategic consultancy services to various group companies as listed above.
