The Private Exchange, or PEX, was established to give the man in the street a platform to participate in private equity. Private equity is an asset class consisting of equity securities in operating companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange. A private equity investment will generally be made by a private equity firm, venture capital firm or an angel investor. This form of investment has traditionally only been available to the wealthy and institutions such as investment banks.


According to the Southern African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (SAVCA), despite the backdrop of significant volatility across all investment markets during 2014, South African private equity funds continued to offer relatively strong performances. Particularly pleasing for private equity investors is the reported overall headline return for the ten years to December 2014 of 19.1%, which outperformed major listed-market indices for the same period, including the FTSE/JSE All Share Total Return Index (ALSI TRI).


It is clear that the traditional players in the private equity field have been consistently achieving solid returns on their investment with the likes of investment banks making astronomical profits in this field which has outstripped all other investment classes.


PEX is addressing this imbalance by giving the man in the street an opportunity to be involved in this market without the need of large amounts of capital. We do this through the formation of investment clubs. These clubs are for individuals that know each other or individuals can elect to become members of clubs with persons not know to them. PEX assists in the formation of both types of clubs and the investment clubs are incorporated as private companies with the maximum number of members per club will be 10. All this is managed over all by corporate finance experts TBL Capital.


Applications for investment clubs are now open and interested individuals and groups can contact the exchange administrator Robin Botha via email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .




Caban Investment Limited shareholders are hereby advised that, by virtue of their shareholding in the Caban Group, they are entitled to take up Pre Private Placement shares in its subsidiary UREG Investments Limited at 25 cents per share.

This entitlement is only valid till 31st May 2015. Thereafter the shares will be sold via Private Placing Memorandum at 50 cents commencing 1 June 2015.


Here is an extract from UREG Investments Limited website:


Why the need for meaningful sustainability?  The current Gas supply shut-down in Europe harks back to the time of the Oil Embargo’s of the early 70’s.  The continued non-sustainable “Business as Usual” model of global Governments ignoring the fragile dependency on non-renewable energy sources is perpetuated to the present day.

Once again, this crisis highlights the fact that Energy security based on finite Fossil Fuel resources can never be achieved.  Over and above this factor, with the population explosion, increasing food and water scarcity, compounded by climatic change caused by industrial and consumer expansion, are adding to the overall global vulnerability regarding resource security.


As Goverments have a vested interest in maintaining the current non-sustainability model world-wide, there is an urgent need for the Private Sector to rise to this major challenge and provide the required long-term sustainable solutions for the benefit of all and not just a few dominant resource holders.


History has shown that Governments by default have never been meaningful and sustainable solutions providers.  As a result, it has now become the urgent responsibility of the Private Sector to demonstrate that it can provide lasting sustainable solutions in all areas of resource security.


Having all the necessary capabilities, the Private Sector can finally liberate us from our present resource dependency model and drive the challenge of bringing about the necessary “status quo” paradigm shift required to achieve these objectives.


UREG Investments has already moved into this arena to become an integral part of this challenging scenario, by investing in sustainable companies and technologies, which form an integral part of the global need to achieve sustainable change.
