|mikehardman: A few paragraphs from its first RNS give an idea of what ORP is about:
"ORP is a newly incorporated Guernsey company whose principal objective is to provide shareholders with capital appreciation primarily from investments in equity and equity-linked instruments in private, unlisted companies whose primary business is related to the natural resource sectors of China and India."
"The Company will invest in the natural resource sector, broadly defined to comprise metals and minerals, forestry and agriculture, forest products such as paper and pulp, water, fossil based fuels (such as oil, coal and gas), and alternative energies (such as bio-energy, wind, hydro, thermo and solar power)."
"Initially, ORP will be offered investment opportunities to invest in 11 companies in relation to which which OSI has entered into letters of intent, term sheets and/or conditional share subscription agreements. In total, the existing pre-vetted deal flow exceeds US$100 million worth of investment opportunities. Each of these advanced stage proposed investments stem from OSI's partnership approach to the management teams of the investee companies through the provision of early stage funding and advice."
"The Origo Sino-India business model, combining provision of capital and consultancy services to fast-growing companies, ideally places ORP to benefit from the phenomenal growth of these two economies."
