Dear Readers:

We are eager to hear from principals or their representatives, investors and brokers about businesses that meet all of the following criteria:

  1. No investment will be made in an unfriendly manner and/or in a dying business and/or an unproven business model and/or prone to be disrupted and/or built on ‘hope’ and/or a non-Shariah compliant business i.e. the company must not be involved in manufacturing/operation/sale/distribution of weapons, games with violent content, night clubs, alcohol, tobacco, pork, music, casinos, movie theaters, pornographic production, financial services such as brokerage and insurance companies;
  2. A founder-led company is preferred;
  3. A strong and durable competitive advantage;
  4. A business earning a high return on its invested capital;
  5. A business that employs little or no debt to support its growth;
  6. Operating in an economy that is not exposed to huge currency risk;
  7. Run by honest and competent management (if this characteristic lacks, forget all the above);

And finally, an offer price; as we don’t want to waste your nor our time.

If you are the owner of such a business or know one, please don’t hesitate to write to us; we will provide a good home. At Mithaq, and as a rule of thumb, when such criteria are maintained, our intention is to hold the proposed company forever. We assure you of the complete confidentiality and a prompt answer.
