Cedrus Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL, based in Munich, Germany, promotes and supports the German & European business community in gaining market entry into the MENA region by leveraging its expert knowledge, competencies and network of contacts.  The object is to become the local partner of choice for German and European enterprises.
The strategic value of Cedrus Deutschland GmbH to the Cedrus Group is made evident, by a partial cross over representation between Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL and Cedrus Deutschland GmbH board. Thus, superior trans-national and trans-regional solutions can be developed for the Group and its partners.
Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL has a well established reputation within the MENA-region as a competence center for successfully spearheading, designing and implementing project. It owes its success to the application of highly innovative, creative, high-tech solutions in cooperation with internationally recognized, “best in class” competence partners. Contracts are mainly mandated to Cedrus Group and its companies by the respective local governments of our target markets in which we operate.
Special care is taken to ensure that the implementation of any venture is done to world-class standards in order that it may serve as a show-case for further international market developments to all local and international partners involved. Often Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL supports such ventures through own investments and/or by bringing financing options to the table.
Our long-standing local presence has given us an in-depth understanding of the MENA region that few are able to match. This combined with our ability to arrange financing and a profound understanding of occidental – oriental management challenges make us highly qualified to serve as local partner and advisor. It is a critical component that serves as the cornerstone of our unique “think-do-invest” approach.
Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL selects its industry focus by adopting an opportunistic market entry strategy.  Structured round the requirements of local markets, and the political climate within which it operates and functions, we constantly update and develop our market intelligence. By way of illustration, we accommodate the MENA-wide political doctrine of “Energy Efficiency” by scouting and implementing solutions like best in class “Smart Meter” / “Smart Energy” through our group company Cedrus Energy (www.Cedrus-Energy.net). This company is constantly involved in major biddings/tender activities related to this area in the respective local markets.
The Cedrus Group is currently focused on scouting and implementing forward-looking, innovative industry solutions related to various areas, including “Renewable Energies”, so called “Over-The-Top”- Telecommunication services, Health Care, Homeland Security and Infrastructure solutions. For a more comprehensive understanding of Cedrus Enterprises Holding SAL ventures and technology Scouting Radar please contact Cedrus Deutschland GmbH for more information.
Successful business development in an international context must go well beyond combining “high tech” expertise, current market knowledge and local stakeholders. The competence that drives local business opportunities is maintaining constant market vigilance and regularly updating the knowledge base. Cedrus Deutschland GmbH makes a constant effort to remain on top of development affecting the markets and industries it serves, ensuring the relevance and integrity of information, skill and competence in the areas of business development advisory services set out herein below. Resources for implementation will be drawn from respective Cedrus Group of companies and a longstanding, worldwide network of selected competence partners if and when needed.

Ongoing technology/Know-how Scouting & Assessment Radar

Technology transfer initially involves the design of “Technology Bridges” that is based on a mutual understanding between technology (know-how) and market partners. Implementation of complex solutions from developed markets to emerging markets involves a high degree of knowledge transfer. Project implementation generally follows one of two paths, “Build-Operate-Transfer” (BOT) or Build-Transfer-Operate (BTO). The end result is that projects are transferred to the local stakeholders through a revenue/profit sharing model backed up by an Operator-Investor.

This understanding of a strategy to internationalize complex projects is however partly outdated nowadays. During the initial project design phase, the technology (know-how) bridge must provide the insights necessary for determining market relevance, durability and sustainability and their impact on asset development. Such “Seed Innovation Strategies” must ensure that the potential developments of new solutions and products will be jointly shared with and marketed with other regions/customer groups in the future. The MENA region is especially qualified for adopting such approach being well-positioned to serve as a market entry partner for an emerging Africa.

Early stage incorporating of local Investment & Risk Mitigation Strategies

Local business opportunities are identified through our holding company and its group at site. The establishment of technology (know-how) bridges demands having the ability identify international competence (“Cedrus Stakeholder Scouting Radar”) and the competence to integrate local investment and risk mitigation strategies as early as the start of the project design phase. Thus a multi-stakeholder funding structure, including local and off-shore parties can be implemented successfully.

Through its parent company, Cedrus Deutschland GmbH is in a position to offer Tailor- made funding options. This is possible due to its financial strength and a willingness to participate in the risk mitigation process involving cross boarder project developments by taking a share of the local risk.

Securing sustainable 'Participation Services' during operational phase

Upon completion of the initial project development phase, the operational control of our projects is devolved into structured organizational units (Legal, HR, Funding, Controlling, marketing) in which we are also willing to carry a share of the operational risk. Early identification and engagement of key managerial resources is a major success factor for successful implementation

Aside from key “human resource” assets, the new organizational units will be equipped with all means necessary to achieve their objective. In addition to providing access to available network and sales competence, budget needs are allocated, preferable on the basis of a cost plus model agreed upon the stakeholders, in order to allow focusing on shareholder Value concepts at an early stage of the venture. Cedrus Deutschland GMBH offers sophisticated “Sustainable Participation Services” not only to the Cedrus Group companies and projects but also to interested third parties.
