MBH Corporation PLC (M8H.D)
MBH Corporation plc benefits from a new approach to building a robust group of companies, pioneering a strategic growth model, called Agglomeration™ 2.0.
The core principle is that the corporation protects and preserves what made a business profitable, then places the same into a community of like-minded businesses with the sole intention of enhancing the value of each individual group company.
With Agglomeration™ 2.0, profitable companies convert their private shares into public shares in MBH Corporation plc at an agreed multiple. Locked up for 365 days, company owners are then incentivised to accelerate their growth trajectory using the resources of the plc including expertise, skill transfer of best in class practices, cross selling to other group companies and where appropriate, zero cost funding for new growth projects.
Each group company retains its autonomy by following appropriate Corporate and Financial Governance and business owners are incentivised financially to enhance shareholder value of which, of course, they are one.
MBH is set to trade well over 5 euro in 2019.
