Executive Summary
 Economic reform and increasing foreign direct investment across West Africa is yielding positive results and has led to a real estate boom across the region.  Economic growth, the improving investment environment and a growing middle class across West Africa has made expansion into the region exciting and rewarding.  There exists a significant gap between supply and demand in the real estate market and there is an opportunity to take advantage of under-valued and under-managed assets.  Tayo Amusan (“TA”) is a leading Nigerian property developer with a portfolio including the Palms Mall, the largest shopping mall in West Africa, luxury residential developments and a land bank in Nigeria.  TA has formed Persianas Development Company Limited (“PDC”) with the objective of becoming the leading property development and investment company in West Africa.  In order for PDC to attain this leadership position, it needs to broaden its portfolio of developments and also explore real estate opportunities across the region.  PDC believes it can create tremendous value capitalizing on this opportunity by developing a predominantly Nigerian but region wide coverage through expansion across West Africa.  Chapel Hill Advisory Partners, a leading Nigerian investment bank, is working with PDC and its bankers, First City Monument Bank Plc (“FCMB”) to achieve its expansion objectives.
