"Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing." Warren Buffett

Targe Capital targets medium sized companies with a history of profitability in the range of R2 million to R15 million operating profit, although it has access to the financial resources to invest in a larger business should the opportunity warrant this. We will consider businesses located anywhere in South Africa that meet our criteria.
