In December 2008, Mekong Enterprise Fund sold its stake in Saigon Gas to the French oil and gas giant, Total Group, who acquired 100% of the company concurrently. This was Mekong Capital’s first divestment. Foreseeing the consolidation trend in Vietnam’s LPG market and understanding the industry dynamics, we worked closely with the company to make it attractive to strategic buyers, focusing on its distribution network, strong brand, and transparency in financial reporting. As a result, MEF managed to complete the exit at attractive valuations, even in the midst of a global financial crisis.
