What is a joint venture?

There are generally two broad types:

  1. Business benefits – Joint ventures that focus on joint business activities and leverage each other's scale and expertise (complementary benefits) to drive mutual growth and synergies.
  1. Business benefits and ownership – This type of joint venture combines the features above with a shared ownership (equity) position and potential for top-up or further buy-out of equity, usually through the issue of options and an agreed valuation, etc. This arrangement provides the synergy benefits for the party or parties, investment of additional capital and an incremental return on risk capital based on the growth in the business.
