Brazil's JRBellardo consultancy firm, headquartered in the city of Campinas, in the interior of the southeastern Brazilian state of São Paulo,Â is seeking Arab businessmen who are interested in investing in renewable energies, more specifically in the purchase of a biodiesel manufacturing plant that is already operating, with a current output of 4 million liters (1.06 million gallons) per month.
"The plant, installed in the state of São Paulo, is located within an area of 18,000 square meters (193,750 square feet), and its operation has been authorized by organizations such as the São Paulo State Company for Sanitation and Technology (Cetesb) and the National Petroleum Agency (ANP)," says lawyer José Roberto Belardo, who is also one of the majority partners at the consultancy firm.
"The plant is very profitable, has no liabilities and no supply contracts in effect. Given the current sales volume, it should have return on investment within the first ten months," he claims.
According to Belardo, there is also the possibility of establishing a partnership with the owner, in case the buyer has enough capital. "It is a highly interesting business to foreign groups, especially for exporting to countries that offer incentives to investment in production of renewable energy, which is of global interest nowadays," he explains.
Based in the city of Campinas and with branches in the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, as well as in Monza, Italy, JRBellardo is the sole representative of Italian and German companies to Brazil and the Mercosur countries.
In addition to selling the plant, the consultancy company, which currently represents approximately 15 Brazilian companies, is also seeking to enter the Arab coffee and raw fruit markets. "These products have quality and competitive pricing, and they have a huge international market potential," says Belardo.
The consultancy firm, established in 1997 to provide legal and entrepreneurial advisory, sells various consumer goods turned to identification, business structuring, market expansion and opening, and customer loyalty strategies.
"Our negotiation processes place an emphasis on the direct relation between manufacturers, importers, exporters and distributors," explains the consultant.
JRBellardo also provides financial consultancy, with eleven years' experience in the field. "We work with the leading financial institutions in Brazil and abroad. All investment must be made by the interested party himself, and we provide legal consultancy for remittances of money and statements with the regulating agencies," explains Belardo. According to him, guidance is supplied after a study is conducted on the client's wealth and needs.
