With a share price and earnings track record that puts most companies to shame, Afrimat is widely regarded as a company with excellent capital allocation discipline and focused strategic execution.

Starting in the construction industry, Afrimat has evolved into a strong mid-tier miner. Afrimat’s secret lies in owning a diversified portfolio of counter-cyclical businesses. The overlay of this cyclicality, when viewed in aggregate, creates a more attractive earnings profile and de-risks the entire operation. A conservative approach to the balance sheet has also been key to success.
