Today, Leone Asset Management, Inc., announced it has signed an MOU to acquire the managerial and operational control of an operating 89.4 acre Granite Quarry in Sierra Leone.
Leone Asset intends to complete all final due diligence and complete the acquisition within 10 days. At the time of completion, Leone Assets subsidiary, The Tosh Group, Ltd., will gain operational control of the Government appraised asset of over 25 million tons of Granite with a local value of over $800m U.S dollars. Tosh will receive 75% of the net profits from the operation. Tosh will be deploying the necessary equipment and managerial expertise to the site and will begin marketing the mined product in the first quarter of 2014.
Tony Khodadad, President of Leone Asset stated, "currently, the local government and large scale businesses in Sierra Leone and surrounding countries have placed a large demand on the product as the need for infrastructure growth continues to rise. In my opinion, to be at the forefront of infrastructure development in these fast growing West African countries is the place to be and I look forward to processing and sourcing the enormous reserve at our disposal."
Khodadad continued in saying, "With our goal to be the best in the space that we operate in, we have sold our investment advisory division, JP Anderson, to focus on the development of our mining and agricultural assets. We expect to see additional acquisitions in this space over the coming months."
