Financial and Legal

Douglas Fliess

Douglas heads up a private equity fund known as Pilot Capital, he has been in the venture capital business for over 30 years, and has developed a reputation for innovative solutions to venture capital opportunities. The key to successful venture capital investments is to always understand the possible exit strategies before making an investment into a company. Douglas has focused Pilot Capital (Pty) Ltd on two specific investment streams; The first opportunity stream is the restructuring of the companies with above average potential, that have found themselves in financial difficulty , these types of opportunity normally require the use of the business rescue process, and Pilot Capital will participate as the post commencement financier, contributing both financial capital as well as financial management to ensure the smooth running of the business. The second type of opportunity pursued is where a company has shown good growth and runs into financial difficulty due to not having sufficient working capital to service its success. These companies fall into the trap of being “too successful for their own good”. The above fundamental approach has led to successful investments with little or no risk, however allowing the venture capitalist the opportunity of significant returns.
