The Investment Case for Capital Appreciation

Building on the current small-cap webinar series, Decuatio will be presenting the investment case for yet another JSE listed company: Capital Appreciation (CAPPREC).

CAPPREC provides payment terminals as well as technology that banks and other financial services companies use to add more features to their digital platforms, such as integrating loyalty programmes and the sale of prepaid vouchers. It also offers highly specialised software development, Cloud services, machine learning and AI-services to a broad range of financial institutions and retailers. Its blue-chip clients include the big four banks as well as Discovery Vitality, TymeBank and a number of asset managers and retailers, locally and abroad. Given the increased uptake of digital payments driven by the Covid-19 crisis, Capital Appreciation had the opportunity to grow its business during a difficult 2020.

Not all solar is created equal

South African consumers and business owners have one thing on their mind as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic: Can we keep the lights on and get our businesses up and running again?

While the challenges at Eskom have been well documented, South Africans have been given a boost with the announcement that municipalities in good standing will be able to purchase their own electricity and take charge of their own power supply.

But what is the most appropriate form of electricity supply?

Solar energy is incredibly topical at the moment and there are a number of options on the market. How does one select which solar implementation is the most appropriate for their needs? What are the common mistakes that people make when installing solar.

In this exciting webinar, financial journalists Nastassia Arendse and former Finweek editor and Moneyweb MD Marc Ashton chat to the team from Solec on the subject of:

Marc Ashton hosts Wikus Lategan (CEO) and Waldi Joubert (Financial Director) as they unpack the investment case for their business and its unique turnkey business model which has three operating segments: namely Residential Property Development, Memorial Parks and Residential Rental Investments.

Innovation in Executive Remuneration

Current share incentive schemes are largely redundant due to poor equity market performance coupled with a changes to tax regimes. Many schemes are no longer fit for purpose as they will not achieve the objectives for the organisation concerned. This has led to persistent underperformance and deep structural weaknesses at companies with professional management teams. The result of inefficient incentive schemes is likely to result in a dramatic shift in executive remuneration strategies and structures, both here in South Africa and internationally.

Addison-Comline in association with Curle Securities has developed a new structure that complements corporate governance best practice while as the same time aligning management more effectively with existing shareholders and the growth of the company.
