Purchase of agricultural real estate in Lithuania.

When Lithuania joined the European Union in 2004, the EU allowed Lithuania to put restrictions on foreigners buying forest land and farmland for a 10-year transition period.

On the April 29th, 2014, the President of Lithuania approved a new law on ownership of farmland, which became valid on the 1st May 2014.

Main topics about farmland ownership (short summary):

  1. Individuals and 'entities' (or related persons in both cases) cannot own more than 500 ha of farmland together.
  2. Related entities are those, when they directly or indirectly have 25% or more of voting power of the other company; or where the same owners have more than 25% in the companies.

Agriculture in Lithuania

Agriculture is one of the oldest businesses in Lithuania and occupies the bulk of the territory in rural areas.

Lithuania is historically an agricultural country. The agricultural sector carries out very important economic, social, environmental and ethno-cultural functions and is considered a priority sector of the national economy. It is the second largest sector in the Lithuanian economy and played a significant economic and social role in all the periods of the country’s history.

Agriculture, forestry and fishing made up 3.3 per cent of the gross value added in 2016, and exports of agricultural and food products accounted for 19.4 percent of Lithuania’s total export.

Even though Lithuania only covers an area of 65,300 km², the agro-climatic conditions vary in different parts of the country. Lithuania has a cool climate with warm summers and cold winters. The average temperature in July is about 17°C, while in winter it is about −5°C.

An interesting feature of the Lithuanian climate is that the winters are mild and there is little snow. Autumn is warm and rainy, spring is relatively cold, and summer is warm. The weather is quite humid with relatively high precipitation over the year. There is high cloud cover year-round, which significantly reduces the amount of heat the sun transmits to the Earth. Even in summer, the actual duration of sunshine in Lithuania does not exceed 60 per cent of the potential sunlight for this latitude.

Crop capacity is the main factor limiting the cultivation of heat-loving plants in Lithuania on a large scale – it is very unstable both year by year and over the year. During the hottest summers when tropical air masses come to Lithuania, the air temperature can get as high as 33–35°C, but in other years the temperature in July can drop to 6–7°C at night.

The average annual precipitation in Lithuania is 670 mm, but its distribution throughout the country is uneven, ranging from 500 to 900 mm. Such large fluctuations are caused by changes in large relief forms, plains and altitudes. Some 60–65 per cent of the annual precipitation occurs during the warm season (April–October). In summer, there is very heavy rainfall every year where 30 mm or more can come down during a single day. Fog is common.

Overall, it can be said that Lithuania has a better balance of biological resources than most of the other EU countries. Therefore, production volumes must also be increased and intensive technologies implemented measures that encourage businesses to protect natural balance and use biological resources in a sustainable and responsible manner. After all, farmers are the first link in the food production chain and they are not limited to growing foods. Farmers often also produce and process products and even sell them directly to consumers.

Crop farming

The favorable natural conditions in Lithuania and the good number of quality agricultural land for cultivating crops together with the long-standing experience in their cultivation have resulted in an increase in cereal crop yield over a few years. This was influenced by an increase in crop areas and the introduction of more advanced technology in crop production. Lithuanian farmers have reached the level of Western Europe. Continuously growing grain yield is becoming the dominant trend.

In Lithuania, more than 32,000 farms of various sizes grow cereal, oil and leguminous crops. Grain plants form a significant part of the crop structure. In 2016, the total crop area was 2.1 million hectares. The relative share of cereals and legumes in the crop structure particularly increased: cereal crops accounted for 65 per cent, and leguminous crops accounted for 11 per cent. The total production of cereals grown in Lithuania accounts for 34.3 per cent of all agricultural production.

The favorable climatic conditions in Lithuania make it possible to cultivate rye, wheat, triticale, barley, buckwheat and other grain crops. They use grains to produce malt, flour, various groats, flakes, pasta, breakfast cereals and cracker, starch, gluten and syrups, and feed makes up the largest part of the production.

Vegetable farming

Lithuania has suitable climatic conditions and sufficient agricultural productivity for the development of vegetable farming. Preconditions for the development of outdoor vegetable farming are also created by traditions. In 2016, 10,7 thousand hectares were used for outdoor vegetable crops. Greenhouses for growing vegetables occupied 0,5 thousand hectares. In 2016, vegetable crops accounted for 3.4 per cent of total agricultural production. The average yield of outdoor vegetables was 18.6 t/ha. The crop yield for outdoor vegetables was 196,2 thou. tons, and 18,4 thou. tons for greenhouse vegetables. Farmers grew 97.2 per cent of outdoor vegetables and 80 per cent of greenhouse vegetables, while agricultural companies produced 2.8 per cent and 20 per cent respectively.

The biggest outdoor vegetable crop in 2016 was cabbage (21.5 per cent), followed by carrots (18.7 per cent), beetroot (16.8 per cent) and onions (15.9 per cent). The crop yield for cabbage was 65,300 tons, for carrots – 44,400 tons, beetroot – 40,300 tons, and onions – 26,500 tons.

The cultivation of potatoes is a traditional branch of agriculture in Lithuania, with about 70 per cent of farms growing them. In 2016, the total potato crop area was 21,3 thousand hectares, and their crop yield was 340,200 tons.

Fruit cultivation

In 2016, there were 29,500 hectares of orchards and berry fields in Lithuania. The most common cultivar in Lithuanian fruit and berry farms is the apple tree. In 2016, 13,700 hectares of land were used for apple trees. Pears (1,7000 ha), plums (1,100 ha), and sour and sweet cherries (1,300 ha) accounted for approx. four per cent of the total land used for orchards and berry fields in 2016. Berry crops have increased in recent years and accounted for 11,400 hectares in 2016. The bulk was used for black currants 4,500 hectares.

Various products are produced from fruit and berries. Juice was the main product, with 9.7 million liters produced. The largest part (60 per cent) was made from apples. Other key products include frozen fruit and berries, as well as various jams, marmalades, jellies, puree and pastes. Various wines and cider are also produced.

Dairy farming

The importance of dairy farming in Lithuanian agriculture remains significant. Milk production is in second place after grain production.

In 2016, 47,100 farms had dairy cattle. The most cows (21 per cent) were kept in farms with three to nine cows. In 2016, the milk yield was 1,756,000 tons, of which 80 per cent was bought for processing. In Lithuania, about 79 per cent of the milk is produced by farmers and family farms. The average cattle productivity in Lithuania in 2016 was 5,536 kg per cow.

Lithuania’s main specialization in the dairy processing industry is cheese. These products also predominate in the export structure.

Meat production

The livestock farming sector in Lithuania is an important and priority agricultural field, supplying the country’s consumers with various livestock products and the agriculture industry itself with organic fertilizers. For the development of this sector, the country has favorable natural conditions, livestock breeding traditions, and a wealth of experience.

At the end of 2016, 57,500 farms were raising cattle. The average farm size is not large. One farm had an average of 12 cattle. In terms of pure-bred beef cattle, Limousin, Angus, Aubrac and Charolais are the most popular in Lithuania. However, crossbreeds are the most widespread.

At the end of 2016, there were 663,900 pigs in Lithuania, of which 48,800 were pure-bred sows’ There were 163,600 sheep at 10,400 farms, for an average of 16 sheep per farm. At the end of 2016, there were 10,098,900 domesticated birds being bred in Lithuania, of which 98 per cent where chickens. Laying hens accounted for one third of the chickens. Geese, ducks, turkeys and other fowl were also bred.

About farming in Poland

.

Poland is the ninth largest country in Europe. It borders with seven other states and the Baltic Sea. Most of the country is lowland.

In 1996, 59% or approx. 18.5 million ha of Poland's total area of 31.1 million hectares was arable land. Of this area, arable land is by far the largest part with 14.1 million ha, followed by meadows of 2.8 million ha, permanent pasture of 1.4 million ha. 76% of Poland's utilized agricultural area is arable land, where the corresponding figure for the old EU countries is only 56%.

The primary crop is grain, especially wheat and rye and to a lesser extent, potatoes, fodder crops, sugar beets, oilseeds and legume plants. For most crops, production has in recent years been lower than before the change of the political system. In general, the percentage of self-sufficiency for most crops is between 90 and 100%.

Poland is a major producer of agricultural, horticultural and animal products. Poland is the second largest in all of Europe as to production of fruit - mainly raspberries and redcurrants and apples. Poland is the world's 2nd largest producer of rye and the world's 6th largest producer of potatoes. Finally, Poland has a strong position in the pig and dairy production, as the 7th and 11th largest producer in the world, respectively.

The average farm size in Poland is 8 hectares (compared to an EU average of 18.7 ha). There is a tendency towards more small and large farms at the expense of medium-sized farms. On national basis, the farm size varies from an average of just about 3 hectares in the southern part of Poland, to more than 20 hectares in the north-western part of Poland. 95.5% of Polish farmland is being cultivated in the private sector, of which 87.7% are family owned farms.

A great number of farms are still cultivated using a low consumption of fertilizers and pesticides. The more commercially oriented farms which use modern methods are able to compete with farms in other EU countries both in terms of quality and productivity. The number of these farms has been steadily increasing. The proportion of commercially oriented farms now accounts for 64.4% of the total agricultural production.

Agriculture in the post-war period:

Polish agriculture differs somewhat from agriculture in other former communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe, since agriculture was never fully collectivized in Poland. Successive communist governments finally accepted the privately-owned farms as the key pillar of food production in Poland. The privately-owned farms have therefore been important throughout the whole post-war period. The state owned farms had about ¼ of the area, and the privately-owned farms had approx. ¾. The state owned farms were mainly situated in the areas of Poland which were taken over from Germany after the 2nd World War, and the average size was around 3,300 ha. The privately-owned farms were very small, usually less than 5 hectares. After the political change in 1989 a main part of the state-owned farms were privatized, parceled and sold, or leased to private farmers, and the agriculture went through a radical restructuring.

.

Poland's climate:

Poland has a temperate climate, but weather conditions are very different depending on the different parts of Poland. If you e.g. take Masuria in the northeastern part of Poland, the climate is more similar to coastal climate because winds blow from the Baltic Sea through the area. This means that the summers are not too hot, and the winters are not too cold, and it is therefore a good climate for plant production.

Lithuania - business, language and people.

Area 65,200 sq.km
Total national border length: 1,732 km.
Capital: Vilnius
Length of Baltic coastline: 90.66 km.
Population: 3,596,617 (July 2005)

Official Language: Lithuanian.
Lithuanian is closely related to Latvian. More than 80% of the country's 3.8m population speaks Lithuanian as their first language. The Lithuanian language has two dialects: Aukštaičių (Aukštaitian, Highland Lithuanian), Žemaičių/Žemaitiu (Samogitian, Lowland Lithuanian).

Geography:
Lithuania lies at the edge of the East European Plain. Its landscape was shaped by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. Lithuania's terrain is an alternation of moderate lowlands and highlands. The highest elevation is 297 meters above sea level, found in the eastern part of the republic and separated from the uplands of the western region of Zemaiciai by the very fertile plains of the south-western and central regions. The landscape is punctuated by 2,833 lakes larger than one hectare and an additional 1,600 ponds smaller than one hectare. The majority of the lakes are found in the eastern part of the country. Lithuania also has 758 rivers longer than ten kilometers. The largest river is the Nemunas (total length 917 kilometers), which originates in Belarus. The other larger waterways are the Neris (510 kilometers), Venta (346 kilometers), and Sesupe (298 kilometers) rivers. However, only 600 kilometers of Lithuania's rivers are navigable.

Nature:
Lithuania's landscape is pleasing to the eye. The area has an abundance of limestone, clay, quartz sand, gypsum sand, and dolomite, which are suitable for making high-quality cement, glass, and ceramics. Oil was discovered in Lithuania in the 1950s, but only a few wells operate in the western part of the country. Lithuania has five national parks (Aukštaitijos, Dzūkijos, Žemaitijos, Kuršių nerijos and Trakų) and 30 regional parks filled with virgin forests and unspoiled marshland, inhabited by protected wild animals and rare birds.

Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania:
The city is located in the southeastern part of Lithuania and is the country's largest city with 534,453 inhabitants. Vilnius was Lithuania's historic capital of the Middle Ages, and became the capital of independent Lithuania in 1991. It is an administrative and commercial city located on both sides of the River Neris.

Vilnius old town is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List

Investing in a natural area does not just have to be an expense.

Unlike passively investing in securities, a natural area can be a good and active investment, which in the long run will make good money for the owner while providing a unique place to use and enjoy nature.

Hunters and anglers are nature lovers and move in nature in a way where they constantly seek more knowledge and greater affiliation.

They harvest the benefits of nature, and they know that nature must be protected before it can be used.

Hunters and anglers are based on a love for nature that is deeply rooted. With it in hand and light in the eyes, they take on a journey from nature care, over killing or the catch - to the enjoyment of the good meal that may follow. They have their time in nature because they simply cannot be left.

Experiences that can be put into some kind of virtual life quality account. From this account, for years, interest rates can be deducted to sweeten every day. "Everywhere hunting and fishing areas are within reach". It's just about taking advantage of the possibilities.

Potential in business investments ...

One could fear that the potential of business investments are being exhausted after the financial crisis and consequent slowdown. That is certainly not the case. New opportunities arise and many companies are performing well. Some of them are ready for new owners, able to bring them to "next level" - both in terms of market, size and, not least, earnings.

Nobody can predict the future. Risk parameters are never static. That's why before any investment decision, you should always ask yourself the question "what if we are wrong?" Accepting the fact that the world does not always develop as expected is a difficult but necessary recognition.

Investing in a company with good stable revenue and profits is of course a good idea. In addition, if the investment also has a solid foundation, in terms of real estate of good quality, the overall risk is less.

Short term trading and investment can create great profit, but the risk can be disproportionately high. Our basic attitude is that genuine value creation can be achieved best through investment with long-term fundamental perspective.

Development and intermediation of investment projects is a complex process and involves lot of communication with a wide range of stakeholders. This communication is crucial for value creation.

Have you already invested or are you considering investing or realizing business in Eastern Europe?
We can help you to create an overview of your risks and opportunities.

We do our utmost to identify the appropriate object of investment and ensure a successful transaction by largely making use of the extensive and personal network that we have built up since 1998.

The perfect transaction starts with a good negotiation.

.

Farmers want to be self-employed, but agriculture is gradually becoming so big and financially unmanageable, that it is more than difficult to realize the dream.

If you are a first-time buyer and have never bought real estate before or gave investment a thought, then there are many things for you to prepare for. Many questions to answer, both to yourself and to those who will finance you.

Is the dream a family farm, located near family and friends, or is a farm abroad an opportunity? Is the dream to become the owner of a hobby farm, where you can have a job along with it, or shall it be a big efficient business? Is the dream ecology or is it conventional production?

Once the idea of owning your own business has started to mature, there are some specific questions that you need to address very quickly.

A good idea is to start by checking out you self via this little checklist here 

The questions may sound banal, but you have to think like an investor and it is essential to have answers to all the details and find a common denominator. Besides a lot of money, there are also many emotions at stake when the dream is to be realized.

After more than 15 years of mediation of agricultural real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, we have a lot of experience and advice on how to get through ‘the keyhole’. .

In addition to the choice of the specific business etc., there is also the entire financing part and the mandatory paperwork that comes along with a transaction. A big unknown area for many new investors, and our advice is that you make use of the right advisors, - and better more of them. Investing abroad it may be difficult to find the right advisors with the right expert knowledge. E.g. a lawyer cannot be expert in all areas. It is essential to make sure, that he has the right detailed knowledge and expertise about the particular transaction you are going to deal with.

Subsequently, it is also important to get a second opinion from another lawyer. No one is known to be flawless and although the first lawyer has his education, experience and liability insurance etc., then it is best that another lawyer looks through the whole case with “new eyes" before signing. If later; errors or omissions appear in the transaction, then the lawyer may probably be economically liable, but errors may affect you negatively anyway. That's not all that is covered by insurance. So - even if you may use the best advisers, it does not mean that you do not have to read the documents yourself. On the contrary.

In a negotiation you can help the transaction on its way by constantly showing flexibility. Take good care of the counterparty's situation and make clear statements. But be prepared to make compromises. A good deal caters to both parties.

It's hard to find the perfect property - it may not exist at all, but over 15 years of experience as agricultural brokers in Poland, Latvia and Lithuania; we have built up a comprehensive network which we utilize to identify the best acquisition opportunities and to ensure that investors are helped through the complex process it is to identify and acquire the right property.

We offer professional sparring and network to ensure that you get the best conditions for establishing and developing your business.

Sustainable building materials.

Alle Industrien tragen auf die eine oder andere Weise zur Emission von Treibhausgasen bei, und es ist notwendig, dass wir alle neu denken und uns alternativ an eine nachhaltigere Art des Produzierens und Konsums anpassen.

According to the international expert group JCSS (Joint Committee on Structural Safety) announcement, worldwide construction accounts for more than a third of total greenhouse gas emissions. Half of the emissions are due to cooling and heating of buildings and the other half comes from material production, building processes and maintenance.

It is about making good and healthy buildings for the benefit of the users, while taking into account the environment and the climate. About developing and using good alternatives for the building materials that use large amounts of energy and chemistry in the production and which devour much on the scarce resources.

Already during the early planning of a building, choices are made that have major consequences for the overall environmental impact. With a focus on sustainability, planners can be an important piece in the transition to greener buildings with a smaller environmental impact.

NATURBAUHAUS, which has been a competent partner and supplier of sustainable building materials in Germany since 1995, is now introducing a new competitive building block for sustainable, green and responsible construction.

A "hemp limestone", a symbiosis between man's oldest cultivated plant - hemp and one of the oldest and most proven building materials - natural lime. The two materials are pressed in a cold process into a strong and insulating brick. The connection of loose hemp discs with natural lime and minerals makes the material hard and resistant to external influences. This protects the environment and saves money. The excellent thermal properties make extra insulation superfluous. In addition, "hemp lime" has air purification and moisture control properties, ensuring a healthier environment and cleaner air.

The hemp plant grows about 50 times faster than wood, and on a hectare of hemp field biomass, enough mass can grow in just 5 months to produce the building blocks for a small family house.

The product is CO² negative since 90% more CO² is stored in the product than is released during manufacture.

Find further information on NATURBAUHAUS website, which unfortunately only exist in German, or contact me. I represent NATURBAUHAUS in Scandinavian and are gladly available with more information, budget offers and concrete offers.

Sustainable construction ... ... for the healthy way of life.

Think about it and choose ecological building materials ... ... it benefits both you and the environment.

Many people opt for a healthy living environment through building and insulating materials made of renewable and natural raw materials, which are particularly popular due to their good processing properties and their building biology advantages.

Naturbauhaus in Schwerin, Germany informs you about the variety of products and new developments in the field of ecological building materials and gives application and processing instructions. Exhibition models and computer presentations demonstrate sophisticated system solutions. You and your needs are our focus. Therefore, individual advice for our team, which includes building consultants and building biologists, is a matter of course.

We provide our customers with building material deliveries directly from the manufacturer or deliver at short notice from our own warehouse.

Investing in a natural area does not just have to be an expense.

Unlike passively investing in securities, a natural area can be a good and active investment, which in the long run will make good money for the owner while providing a unique place to use and enjoy nature.

Hunters and anglers are nature lovers and move in nature in a way where they constantly seek more knowledge and greater affiliation.

They harvest the benefits of nature, and they know that nature must be protected before it can be used.

Hunters and anglers are based on a love for nature that is deeply rooted. With it in hand and light in the eyes, they take on a journey from nature care, over killing or the catch - to the enjoyment of the good meal that may follow. They have their time in nature because they simply cannot be left.

Experiences that can be put into some kind of virtual life quality account. From this account, for years, interest rates can be deducted to sweeten every day. "Everywhere hunting and fishing areas are within reach". It's just about taking advantage of the possibilities.

Why to invest in recreation land?

Real estate has historically been the asset class, which has developed commercially most positively over time.

Unlike securities, you can enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and many other activities with the ownership of recreation land, while the value is steadily growing. While you enjoy the land, the trees continue to grow and provide an asset that can be made liquid in a fairly short amount of time.

Tourism is growing all over the world.

Every year, global tourism is growing faster than the world economy.
Europe welcomes more than half of all the world's tourists.

International tourist arrivals grew by a remarkable 7% in 2017 to reach a total of 1,322 million, according to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer. This strong momentum is expected to continue in 2018 at a rate of 4%-5%.

Never in the history of humanity there have been so many travelers, and in the coming years there will only be more and more. With more than 1.3 billion tourist accommodation in 2017, the number of travelers has almost doubled since the turn of the millennium. The development means that tourism in a few years has become one of the most important and fastest growing industries at all. Every tenth job in the world is now in the travel industry, which also accounts for about a tenth of all economic activity on the planet. A total of 116 of the 195 countries of the globe are in a development where tourism grows faster each year than the economy as a whole. The fastest growth is currently taking place in Asia, in particular, by Chinese tourists, but Europe is still the tourist continent number one with half of all nights.

You should not travel far in Europe until new exciting impressions from strange cultures, impressive scenery, dramatic mountains, live metropolitan areas and inviting coastlines await you with one beautiful sandy beach after another. You can easily meet your travel wishes, whether it's a self-catering holiday, city break, active holiday, cultural holiday or beach holiday you're dreaming about.

Masuria is a historic region in the north-east of Poland and the country's largest wilderness landscape. It is today in the Ermland-Masurian Voivodship. The name of Masuria originates from the Masurians, Polish settlers from Masovia, who populated large parts of the area.

Masuria is also called Europe's green lung !

The region is located in the northeastern part of Poland and is an extremely sparsely populated region with thousands of lakes and deep forests. The western part of the area, around the Masurian lakes, hosts an ever-increasing tourism, while the eastern part offers a holiday paradise for individualists and nature lovers. Both the wilderness of the town of Biaùowieêa, near the Belarussian border, and the swamp areas of the River Biebrza, is in itself an experience.

The Warmin-Mazurskie area houses numerous architectural highlights: historic castles and ancient castles make up part of the landscape image and tell about the magnificent past of the region.

Investment opportunity:

There is currently an interesting opportunity to invest in the growing tourism of the Masurian Lake District.

Located in the Sapina River Basin, right in the heart of the Masurian Sea District, there is an area of 82 ha, with the possibility of development for tourism, for sale.

The areas are covered by the plan of a study of the development directions and the possible investment is in the following areas: residential and commercial, guest houses and hotels, recreation, agritourism and angling.

It has become more advantageous to start a new business in Latvia.

New Corporate income tax in Latvia.

As of January 1st, 2018, the companies are applying a conceptually new corporate income tax in Latvia. The companies have to pay the corporate income tax on profit distribution only, whereas the individual shareholders do not pay 10% dividend tax anymore.

The new corporate income tax is payable upon the distribution of profits only. Until the Latvian company keeps the profits, 0% tax is payable. The tax is payable following 20%/80% rule, where the net amount is multiplied by 20%/80% to calculate the tax.

The main benefit of the new tax is that the payment of it could be postponed, thus allowing to reinvest it into operations, investment vehicles or simply keep the cash. By paying the tax later the company benefits from the time value of the postponed tax payment.

For local individual shareholders, the new tax is more beneficial since they do not pay dividend tax anymore. The new tax rate is 20% of the gross dividends instead of previous 15 % Latvian corporate income tax and 10% personal income tax. Latvian tax residents pay no tax on of the dividends they receive from the foreign countries.

For the foreign legal entities, the increase of the tax rate from 15% to 20% will be outweighed by the time value of the postponed tax. Therefore, in the long run, the impact will be neutral. The only exception probably is manufacturing companies which lose current tax reliefs related to the acquisition of the new equipment etc.

The Latvian law does not restrict the financing the company through a loan ("except, the thin capitalization rule"), however, it restricts the withdrawal of the cash from the Latvian company via a loan.

A Latvian company has advantages of a holding company since: (i) the sale of shares is tax-exempt provided that the Latvian company has held them for 3 years and (ii) the flow-through dividends are tax exempt.

Shall your business be sold?
   - - -    or shall it just be put on sale?


Understanding your business is an important part of understanding the value of your business.
Right from the foundation, industry, products, brick stones and machines to the brand, customers, employees and market position.

A potential buyer is interested in future earnings. Historical information is backdated information that only interests a buyer to the extent that he can use them to project his future earnings and has only the value to the buyer that it can earn back.

Selling one’s business involves too many a sale of a business life - a big decision that involves many emotions.

The easiest thing is to put the company for sale - the art is to get it sold.

We have developed and brokered many investment projects and companies in Eastern Europe since 2001. Have participated in dozens of transactions. Both sales but also leases of companies. See some of our references here  

Contact Jesper Kjaer at +45 5136 1495 or jk@jkaps.dk for a free and non-binding talk about the value of your business, if it can be sold as you expect - as well as how a sales process can be handled.

Riga - the capital of Latvia.
Definitely worth a visit.

Riga is a city worth visiting. You are extremely pleasantly surprised. Riga offers everything from active business to culture and culinary experiences - and there are good shopping opportunities, if that’s what you are looking for.

Riga is the capital of Latvia. One of the smallest capitals in Europe, with only about 700,000 inhabitants. It is obvious that it is a small metropolis in the corner of Europe today, but also the city's important status as the country's capital. The city's population constitutes more than 35% of the entire population of the country. It is Latvia's epicenter.

Riga consists of a new and an old town. The difference between these is clearly seen. The old town is very well maintained and an architectural gem - the new city, which mainly was built in the Soviet era, is unfortunately not so interesting to visit.

Riga is located at the expanse of the Daugava River in Riga Bay and is a very beautiful city. The river's rivers through the city, the many bridges, unique churches, exciting buildings and countless parks give an impression of a charming city that springs from history.

Potential in business investments ...

One could fear that the potential of business investments are being exhausted after the financial crisis and consequent slowdown. That is certainly not the case. New opportunities arise and many companies are performing well. Some of them are ready for new owners, able to bring them to "next level" - both in terms of market, size and, not least, earnings.

Nobody can predict the future. Risk parameters are never static. That's why before any investment decision, you should always ask yourself the question "what if we are wrong?" Accepting the fact that the world does not always develop as expected is a difficult but necessary recognition.

Investing in a company with good stable revenue and profits is of course a good idea. In addition, if the investment also has a solid foundation, in terms of real estate of good quality, the overall risk is less.

Short term trading and investment can create great profit, but the risk can be disproportionately high. Our basic attitude is that genuine value creation can be achieved best through investment with long-term fundamental perspective.

Development and intermediation of investment projects is a complex process and involves lot of communication with a wide range of stakeholders. This communication is crucial for value creation.

Have you already invested or are you considering investing or realizing business in Eastern Europe?
We can help you to create an overview of your risks and opportunities.

We do our utmost to identify the appropriate object of investment and ensure a successful transaction by largely making use of the extensive and personal network that we have built up since 1998.

”We act agile in a volatile world”

Development and mediation of investment projects is a difficult and complex process. In our work we are preoccupied of how projects arise and how one achieve ones goals most quickly and easy. There are no clear solutions, specific methods or ways to achieve them. On the contrary, we encounter many - and often opposing - methods. One can say that the reality is created through our individual maneuvers. We each of us have our starting point, experiences and goals. Different methods works in different situations.

A world of constant change calls for agile strategies. There is a need to adjust and adapt much more often than before. Exact knowledge and sharp analysis are crucial, together with the ability to act agile and decisively. To come to the right solutions in order to adapt to the world as it is today. It's no use to invest in something that's already outdated when it's going to unfold.

To be able to adapt to new conditions, requires both the ability to learn new skills and the ability to use it.
Adaptability is about ability to respond to changing demands, opportunities and threats. Being able to see, listen, understand and make decisions.

The agile is not a method, but rather a philosophy that tries to cope with the rigid, locked methodologies. We always identify better ways, by "doing it" and by helping others to "do it". We release solutions when they are ready for it, and do not necessarily wait for the final concept. In this way, solutions are tested continuously, avoiding major mistakes.

We develop and broker capital-intensive investment objects that requires long-term considerations, strategies and decisions. We build it on a deep insight into the local possibilities - and the ability to be at the forefront of tomorrow.

Through this work we have learned to appreciate the individual. On cooperation rather than on processes and regulations. Handle changes rather than maintain a rigid plan. We build on focusing on the customer, accommodating changes, allowing early feedback and ongoing delivery, as well as understanding the importance of communication. One interpretation can promote one solution while blocking another.

”Agil means; ability to move quickly and easily”

Being able to invest long term requires the ability to move quickly and easily, that you have done your homework properly, due diligent, resolute and agile "when the fruits are mature".

We take pride in being a committed partner and we have made it our brand "to make the impossible possible".

Broking of agriculture in Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

.

Expertise and market knowledge is essential.

Purchase and sale of agricultural property is a large and often long-term decision, in which both emotions and finances play a large role in the decision process. For many it is the biggest decision they make in life.

Especially trade in agriculture abroad requires great experience and insight into local opportunities, in order to understand the mechanisms that trigger the markets and to know and to understand both the written and the unwritten rules.

Being a farmer abroad is difficult and experience has shown that many make the same mistakes and have the same challenges when investing. With the right coaching one can avoid the most frequent obstacles and challenges.

With more than 15 years experience as agricultural brokers in Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, we have built a large and diverse network that we use to identify the best acquisition opportunities and to ensure that investors are helped through the complex process it is to find and acquire the best property for him.

We offer professional sparring and networks to ensure you get the best conditions to acquire and grow your business.

We see it as our most important duty to inform both the seller and the buyer thoroughly, so both parties get the best possible basis for a decision. We are not in favour of fast acting, after which one party remains in an unlucky situation. A transaction must be carefully considered and prepared in order to be successful. We have only reached our goal if both buyer and seller are satisfied after a transaction.

With our many years of experience in the trade with agricultural properties in Central and Eastern Europe, we have accumulated a professional market insight that enables us to advise you seriously and professionally - whether you want to buy, sell or just want to an informal sales assessment of your property.

The world needs energy.

The need for energy is rising, because we become more people, who all are consuming more and more resources. By 2050, we are over 9 billion people on the globe, who all want to live a good life. One of the prerequisites is clean, adequate and cheap energy and the need increases as societies evolves and living conditions improves.

The 20th century was largely driven by access to cheap and abundant amounts of coal, oil and gas. World energy consumption has more than doubled over the past 40 years. Only twice we have seen a real decrease in energy consumption. It was during the second oil crisis after Shaun's fall in Iran in the early 1980s and in connection with the financial crisis in 2008. In the 21st century, there must be other ways to meet the need for energy. Only over the next 25 years is global energy consumption expected to grow by one third.

The Danish government has a vision of Danish independence of coal, oil and gas in 2050. It is a landmark and shows, on a full scale, that a society independent of fossil fuels is possible.

The strategy is the first of its kind in the world. It sets out the energy policy tools that will make Denmark a green, sustainable and competitive society with a stable energy supply. Until 2020, the strategy will reduce the use of fossil fuels in the energy sector by 33 per cent compared to 2009. In addition, the strategy will increase the share of renewable energy to 33 per cent by 2020 and reduce gross energy consumption by 2020 with 6 per cent compared to 2006 due to a significant focus on energy efficiency. The government's goal of making Denmark independent of fossil fuels by 2050 is based on the recognition that the world is facing a new energy policy age.

More and more countries are, in line with Denmark, implementing technology that can provide the population with clean energy, but development is slow and does not cover the needs of both new energy and replacement of conventional production facilities.

Most installations for the production of renewable energy are listed as private investments. The energy produced is often sold to the public distribution network and the sold energy is often settled through subsidized settlement systems.

In many countries, the traditional subsidized settlement systems are changing, and several have already adopted or are considering implementing auction systems to determine the settlement of energy sales. The conversion is not necessarily a bad thing in the long term, but in the short term, it gives some uncertainty for those who will finance and build the projects. There are, of course, needs to adjust the settlement systems as conditions and technology evolve, but for investors; it is absolutely crucial whether they can be sure that the assumptions they have made, can return an investment over the project lifetime, as anticipated.

We are currently experiencing investors withdrawing from 'technically sound projects' because they cannot be sufficiently secure on the repayment period.

Experienced developers

Jesper Kjaer ApS is a diversified developer and broker company, which has developed projects for renewable energy in central and Eastern Europe since 2001. Through a combination of self-development, joint venture development and strategic cooperation, we have participated in the development of projects for more than 1,000 MW wind turbines.

Our position is based on a deep understanding of local opportunities - and the ability to be at the forefront of tomorrow. We take pride in being a committed partner and we have made it our brand to make the impossible possible. Development and mediation of investment projects is a difficult and complex process, but we never lose sight of what creates value for our customers.

We are developing, at this point, commercial investment projects in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania. In addition, we are active in the development of wind power projects in Morocco.

Due to the ongoing reforms of renewable energy settlement systems, in the markets where we are active, and the uncertainty currently created for investors, we have decided to market only projects for renewable energy, that are already operating with stable earnings, to existing investors. We continue to develop new projects as before, but they will only be marketed when there is more transparent and predictable settlement systems in place.

About farming in Latvia

Operation of agriculture abroad requires a lot of planning and time.

Many places in Latvia are cornfields cultivated by foreign farmers, and there are more projects for the establishment of farms and pig farms.

Latvia has large areas of fallow land, relatively low production costs and the large Russian market right next door. These assumptions have been an important starting point for many farmers, who have invested in Latvia and build modern and efficient farms. As a foreign investor it is important to remember that there are high costs of cultivating fallow land up. It takes much time, costs a lot of resources to get the production up at a fairly level and the lack of revenue can be difficult to finance. We suggest focusing on farmland that are already in a good crop rotation, but if you prefer to cultivate the idle land, there must be solid equity as basis.

Each country has its own distinctive characters.

Although Latvia is a member of the European Union, the local laws are somewhat different from those one is used to. Likewise; the documentation requirements from the authorities can be different from what one is used to. The most important thing before beginning to run a business in Latvia is to realize that it will be an operation in a foreign country.

Although Latvian law is in accordance with EU regulations and directives, then there are different laws current than one is used to in ones homeland. One experience also significant differences in the business traditions and mentality. Agriculture in Western Europe have evolved over hundreds of years, while Latvia only in the last two decades have returned to the market conditions. And it is impossible to avoid that it affects citizens' attitudes towards business and business culture. One must also assume that in Latvia - especially in agriculture – are lack of qualified workers, who are able to work with large modern machinery and technologies. This means that one has to invest time and energy into training of staff.

It is especially important to manage ones investments and projects. Farmers have typically high professional competences and great confidence in people, but in some cases lack of leadership skills. What the Latvians often need, is a role model for monitoring, making decisions and carry responsibility.

Agriculture in Latvia is a perspective area.

Farmer’s success story in Latvia can be explained by the fact that Latvia has many possibilities. First of all, one can buy land for a relatively good price. Secondly, one can achieve a higher yield if one has modern agricultural machinery and good management, because production and labour costs are relatively low in Latvia. Next, businessmen can feel safe about their investments because Latvia's has membership of both the EU and NATO.

In addition, one in Latvia can seek EU support for various development projects.

The business opportunities for foreign farmers are good because rural areas in Latvia are still relatively underdeveloped. E.g. one can for example establish intensive agricultural production, including cattle breeding, where one manufactures products both for local consumption and for export. One can also expect that the production and export of organic products of high quality for the Western European countries will be an important focus area, because rural areas in Latvia are ecologically clean.

Introduction to agriculture in Latvia

Latvia is the middle of the three Baltic States, which regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Slavic-speaking minority, mostly Russians make up over a third of the population, and they master a significant portion of the private sector.

After the Soviet Union’s annexation of the Baltic countries in 1940, Latvia became a part of the Soviet plan economy. After the Soviet Union disintegration in 1991 was the market economy reintroduced. The transition from plan economy to market economy led to a sharp drop in production both in industry and in agriculture with high unemployment and a general decline in living standards as a result.

Latvia is a democratic parliamentary republic. The constitution is from 1922. It was restored in 1993 and amended in 1997. The dominant language is Latvian, spoken by about 59% of the population (2005). From 1989 is Latvian the only official language. Russian is spoken by about 29%.

In March 2004, Latvia became member of NATO and on May 1st it became member of the European Union, along with nine other Central and Eastern European countries.

Latvia implemented an expansionary economic policy based on debt. The growth was not based on manufacturing and exporting, but in construction, housing and luxuries and when the bubble burst, the damage was much greater because the underlying production was limited and the Latvian households savings low.

The global economic crisis hit Latvia hard. In 2008 alone, GDP fell by 10.5%, followed by a further drop of 17.8% in 2009. The unemployment rate increased from 7% in December 2008 to 14.3% in March 2009 and further to 22.3% in March 2010, and the youth unemployment rate nearly doubled to 44.9%. The highest unemployment rate in the EU.

.

Latvia is regaining economic momentum. From 2011 to 2013 the average growth of the Latvian economy of 4.7% annually, Latvia was thus among the fastest growing economies in the EU. We believe that it right now is a good time to invest in Latvian agriculture.

Agriculture represents about 4% of GDP and employs 15% of the population. Agriculture is mainly concerned with livestock, also cereal, sugar beet, potatoes and vegetables. Latvia's forestry is export oriented, partly as raw wood, but also a part as processed wood.

Latvia's landscape is formed by deposits from the last ice age and is predominantly lowlands of moraine and NW-SE-reaching valleys and ridges; only in a few places, hills reach 300 meters height. The quality of farmland varies greatly and it is a good idea to study soil composition, formation and classification and to test the underlying layer profiles. It is not sufficient to assess and take sample from the topsoil. One can experience fairly light topsoil, but the underlying layers make it very fertile, or vice versa.

It is still possible to acquire a large and efficient agricultural land in Latvia. Land can be purchased at very reasonable prices, but if the land is very cheap, there is often a reason for it. One should investigate the matter thoroughly before signing.

The rules for purchase of agricultural land have been tightened. Typically, it is now only people with agricultural education and who are living from farming, who can buy a farm, but a agriculture can still be purchased by purchasing a Latvian company that owns land or a farm.

Investment opportunity;
in the beef cattle production in Poland.

.

Are you looking for an attractive agricultural investment, in a new production company, with growth potential?

Then beef meat production in Poland might be something for you!

Due to limited supply and high demand of beef meat in Europe, it is now the perfect time to invest in the production of beef cattle.

. Poland is an agricultural country known for its excellent livestock production.

Beef production has been growing in recent years. 2016 and 2017 was no exception. There is a large and growing domestic consumption of beef meat but Poland is, however, still a net exporter of beef. In 2015 exports of beef amounted to 365,923 MT and were 20 percent higher than in 2014.

Italy remains the predominant destination for exported Polish beef and took 22 per cent of Poland’s exports in 2016, or 73,100 tonnes. Budget conscious Italian consumers are favouring smaller cuts and Polish exporters are adapting to this with heifer beef. Germany is the next biggest importer of Polish beef, at 48,200 tonnes, with an appetite for cow beef in its processed products.

The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and France are also major importers of Polish beef within the EU, while Bosnia & Herzegovina together with Israel and Arabic countries are major buyers outside the EU.

" A penny saved is a penny earned "

.

… they say.


A truth with modifications, because an investment is first of all about achieving what you want, in a safe and appropriate way.

However, it may be crucial that you know all the historical circumstances of the object, that may affect your future ownership and use of it. An error or a defect can be fatal. Therefore, it is always crucial be well prepared before you begin, to be diligent in the process and to conduct a careful technical, legal and financial due diligence before you act.

Economic gains in Poland, Latvia and Lithuania.

.

When one chooses to invest in real estate, one get a share in socially determined economic gains, which one cannot get in other ways. It is important to participate in the investment waves that come in one’s lifetime. With the right property one can earn a good return on operations and any value gains are bonuses.

It is a good idea to invest in agriculture in Eastern Europe. Here, land prices are still moderate and operating costs are often only half of what one experience in Western Europe. An investment in real estate is a good long-term investment and in Eastern Europe one can still expect relatively large economic gains on real estate.

It takes time to invest. One must do ones homework properly, take care and use good advisors with specialist - and local knowledge.

Profitability is determined by selling prices, productivity, and the capital costs. One cannot influence the sales much, and productivity has a natural limits. Capital costs are estimated at the time of investment, and therefore the trading price is an important prerequisite for your profitability for many years to come. The company's trading price should not be higher than it can service both capital and equity costs, as well as being a buffer for risk and reinvestments.

Expertise and market knowledge is essential.

.

Purchase and sale of agricultural property is a large and often long-term decision, in which both emotions and finances play a large role in the decision process. For many it is the biggest decision they make in life.

Especially trade in agriculture abroad requires great experience and insight into local opportunities, in order to understand the mechanisms that trigger the markets and to know and to understand both the written and the unwritten rules.

The perfect transaction starts with a good negotiation.

.

Farmers want to be self-employed, but agriculture is gradually becoming so big and financially unmanageable, that it is more than difficult to realize the dream.

If you are a first-time buyer and have never bought real estate before or gave investment a thought, then there are many things for you to prepare for. Many questions to answer, both to yourself and to those who will finance you.

Is the dream a family farm, located near family and friends, or is a farm abroad an opportunity? Is the dream to become the owner of a hobby farm, where you can have a job along with it, or shall it be a big efficient business? Is the dream ecology or is it conventional production?

Once the idea of owning your own business has started to mature, there are some specific questions that you need to address very quickly.

A good idea is to start by checking out you self via this little checklist here 

The questions may sound banal, but you have to think like an investor and it is essential to have answers to all the details and find a common denominator. Besides a lot of money, there are also many emotions at stake when the dream is to be realized.

After more than 15 years of mediation of agricultural real estate in Central and Eastern Europe, we have a lot of experience and advice on how to get through ‘the keyhole’. .

In addition to the choice of the specific business etc., there is also the entire financing part and the mandatory paperwork that comes along with a transaction. A big unknown area for many new investors, and our advice is that you make use of the right advisors, - and better more of them. Investing abroad it may be difficult to find the right advisors with the right expert knowledge. E.g. a lawyer cannot be expert in all areas. It is essential to make sure, that he has the right detailed knowledge and expertise about the particular transaction you are going to deal with.

Subsequently, it is also important to get a second opinion from another lawyer. No one is known to be flawless and although the first lawyer has his education, experience and liability insurance etc., then it is best that another lawyer looks through the whole case with “new eyes" before signing. If later; errors or omissions appear in the transaction, then the lawyer may probably be economically liable, but errors may affect you negatively anyway. That's not all that is covered by insurance. So - even if you may use the best advisers, it does not mean that you do not have to read the documents yourself. On the contrary.

In a negotiation you can help the transaction on its way by constantly showing flexibility. Take good care of the counterparty's situation and make clear statements. But be prepared to make compromises. A good deal caters to both parties.

It's hard to find the perfect property - it may not exist at all, but over 15 years of experience as agricultural brokers in Poland, Latvia and Lithuania; we have built up a comprehensive network which we utilize to identify the best acquisition opportunities and to ensure that investors are helped through the complex process it is to identify and acquire the right property.

We offer professional sparring and network to ensure that you get the best conditions for establishing and developing your business.

The path to the ideal business.

.

With the large range of enterprises, it should in principle not be difficult to identify the right company.

In practice, however, that the problem is connected with difficulties. These difficulties may e.g. be:

  • Purchase during periods of difficult financing conditions.
  • The undertakings offered are located in a geographic area which is not optimal for the buyer.
  • Businesses are put up for an unrealistic price.
  • Business is wrong.
  • The sizes and potentials are not satisfactory, etc.

The most important factor is the line of business and then follows the geographical location of the company.

The size of the company is not a decisive criterion for the purchase of the company. Both the company's organization and economics is important for the buyer, the final choice of business. To the question, to identify the right business – the ideal business – belongs, however, that many small businesses are not viable after implementation of a generational change. That fact must be considered carefully.

There are relatively few companies that are presented as being up for sale. It is estimated that only 15-20% of businesses actually for sale, which appear in the databases. The majorities are placed via business brokers to selected strategic buyers, financial buyers or buyers in the brokers own database.

An effective network is crucial.

Reflections on purchase of business.


When thinking about such a large decision as buying a business starts, there are a number of issues that arise.

The first question is aimed at the purchaser's own situation. Before these questions are evaluated and answered, there is no basis to proceed with purchase plans.

  • Possibilities and limitations?
  • What is the starting point for the buyer?
  • How is the personal strength and competence?
  • How is the economic situation?
  • How is the hinterland (family and employees etc.) set?
  • How should the process be controlled optimally?

When the personal relationship is sufficiently clarified, a series of new considerations arises.

  • How to identify the right company?
  • Where should the company be located?
  • What industry wanted?
  • What size desired?
  • How is the company's overall competitive situation?
  • What products?
  • How is competition for the product?

It may in itself be problematic to get defined, how the buyer's wishes to the company is, but when it is established, there is a number of more specific issues.

When the desired operator is found:

  • Can the purchase make a positive difference?
  • What should the price of the company be?
  • Who can put the price of the company?
  • How is production equipment with regard to age and composition?
  • How is the organization in your company?
  • What are the earnings ratios?
  • How is financing conditions in the company?
  • How the company compare with competitors and the industry?
  • Which guarantees make seller?

It is very important for a buyer to have formed the perfect advisory team who can assist the buyer both professionally and personally in such a complicated process.

  • Who will be included at the advice?
  • Who will advise in the concrete situation?
  • What should it cost?

A buyer has rarely a sufficient capital to realize purchase of a business. Therefore, a new series of questions arise.

  • Financing?
  • Equity?
  • Foreign capital?
  • Co-investors?
  • Shall the seller participate in financing?
  • Should there be ongoing payments (earn out)?

When these many questions are answered, it is a prerequisite that a corporate buyer may create a value of the purchased company – he or she should be able to make a positive difference! Buyer may increase the company's turnover, reduce costs, improve the purchase and sales conditions etc., in order to create a better cash flow. Opportunities also exist to reduce risk, reduce the fixed capital etc.

Finally; the company can constitute a platform for later additions of other undertakings and thereby create synergy.


     20-08-2015

Opportunities and limitations.

.

Decision about the purchase or sale of a company is one of the biggest decisions in both the owner's and the company's life and can be equated with the decision on the establishment.

The purchase or sale of a business is a serious matter and is a process that always will be associated with a certain uncertainty. It is also a situation where the parties very rarely has sufficient knowledge and experience.

Once in a lifetime, selling a business.

Regardless of whether it is an existing company or a new business, the business case must be in place. The investor must base on an intention to develop the company in a certain direction, with the confidence that competitiveness can be achieved and/or other gain can be achieved.

What are your plans for mergers and acquisitions, and how to ensure synergy?

.
  • Who are the best owners of your activities, and do you know what it takes to make you an attractive buyer, partner or acquisition candidate?
  • What actions are best realized through non-organic activities and what is the possibility of mergers and acquisitions?
  • What is the rationale for making the purchase?
  • Do you have the resources and skills to see options, evaluate candidates, manage the process and conduct due diligence?
  • Many mergers and acquisitions fail in human relationships
    - Is due diligence, organization and Post-Merger-level furnished sufficient?

     12-06-2015

Growth is not a one-off matter.

.

Most of the strategic agendas are about profitable growth, and many companies feel a need to make it a business issue.

It requires a coordination of efforts in acquisitions, product development, sales, marketing and pricing in a coherent program. At the same time, your organization must be able to follow and be scalable.

  • What has driven your growth to date,
    and what should be going forward, the "growth-DNA"?
  • Are you able to grow real, profitable and become stronger?
  • How do you ensure that growth does not "disappear",
    or is found not to increase the value?
  • What are the significant components for growth for the next two to four years
    - and how do they play together and support each other?
  • How do you organize, implement, operate and monitor cross-cutting initiatives?
  • How do you ensure that the supply chain can follow and support the development and that the organization and systems are set to play with?

Small hydroelectric plants.

.

Projects for small hydroelectric plants belong to a small exclusive niche in the renewable energy market in Poland. There is only a limited number of projects available, but enough to gather an interesting portfolio.

The landscape in Poland is rather flat, and there is not a high water column for the turbines. The rivers in Poland transport a stable and fairly large amount of water all year long and do not lack water during the dry seasons that some rivers make in, for example. Balkans, Romania, Spain, etc.

The technology of the "flat land" hydropower plants differs from the technology used for "mountainous land" hydropower plants. Hydroelectric power plants create their power from slow flowing rivers, as is the case, for example, in all hydroelectric power plants in Poland, the Baltic countries and Finland.

The small hydroelectric power stations in Poland are a good business.


Creates a good, stable and reliable income.

.

Investment in small hydroelectric power plants must be considered differently from, for example, wind energy. The design life of a wind turbine is approx. 20 years, while the main components have a life span of over 50 years.

Jesper Kjær ApS provides and offers small hydroelectric power plants as investment projects or projects already in operation, and we provide services in connection with the management of investments. We perform our services to international investors who recognize the value of investing in small hydroelectric power plants and seeking reliable and long-term investment opportunities.

Over the last couple of years there has been an increasing interest in investments in Poland, which today is one of the most progressive and stable markets in Europe. As the only country in Europe, Poland has made economic progress throughout the financial crisis. The general economic uncertainty in Europe has driven this trend.

Development and dissemination of real estate is a complex process, but we always aim at what creates value for our customers.

All hydropower projects in Poland are currently available and not available to new investors, but we are working on new projects.

Bioenergy projects.

.

Projects for small biomass power plants belong to a small exclusive niche in the renewable energy market in Latvia. There is only a limited number of projects available, but enough to gather an interesting portfolio.

60-70% of Latvia is covered in forests. Unfortunately, a large part of the wood is best suited for burning.

.

Due to the lack of facilities for the utilization of the tree, a large proportion is exported in the form of wood chips, wood or wood. This type of export of raw materials produces a low sales value and the Latvian government has adopted various initiatives to support better utilization of raw materials.

Small biomass power plants can utilize raw materials locally and contribute to better utilization of raw materials and job creation in areas with very high unemployment.

The small biomass power plants in Latvia are a good business for investors.


Creates a good, stable and reliable income.

.

Jesper Kjær ApS offers small biomass power plants in Latvia as investment projects and we provide services in connection with the management of investments. We perform our services to international investors who recognize the value of investing in small biomass power plants in Latvia and seeking alternative, reliable and long-term investment opportunities.

Wind power in Poland.

Poland has a very favorable climate for renewable energy investment. Poland is the largest of the new EU countries. While economic growth has declined in most countries, growth in Poland's gross domestic product (GDP) in recent years has been the leader in the EU. The economy in Poland is a high-income economy and is the sixth largest in the EU. One of the fastest growing economies in Europe, with an annual growth rate before the "2000 recession" of more than 3.0%. It is the only member of the European Union that has avoided a decline in gross domestic product. Poland made the highest GDP growth in the EU in 2009.

Gross domestic product in Poland grew 2.70 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with the same quarter last year. GDP annual growth rate in Poland has been reported by the Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS). GDP annual growth rate in Poland averaged 4.24 percent from 1995 to 2013 reached a record high of 8.10 percent in the fourth quarter of 1996 and a record low level of 0.30 percent in the fourth quarter of 2001.

As a major and growing economy, Poland has the largest electricity generation sector in Europe with a capacity of 37.4 GW and a production of 163 TWh in 2012. Outdated production assets, falling reserve margins and high carbon dependency to about. 90% of gross production (the highest level in the EU) increases the need for new, clean, production capacity. As a result, Poland has one of the most attractive sustained regimes in Europe. In December 2010, Poland-European Commission presented its indicative targets for installing between 10.5 GW and 12.5 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2020, in order to reach 15% of total energy production by 2020 and 20% in 2020 2030. By 2020, the goal is that total renewable energy production will grow by between 25.4 TWh and 30.1 TWh per year. In order to achieve these goals, Poland will have to install between 800 MW and 1000 MW of renewable capacity annually.

Development and dissemination of wind power projects.

Together with a German / Polish consortium, we have developed projects for more than 1,000 MW of wind power along the Polish Baltic coast. All of these projects are sold to Japanese, German, Austrian and Spanish investors. Some are in operation and some are under construction. The remaining waiting to start construction.

Due to efficiency and environmental issues, the Polish energy sector plans to close approx. 6,000 MW existing conventional production capacity (coal power) by the end of 2018.

Today, developer, developer, broker and distributes wind power projects in Poland, Germany, the Baltic States, Romania and North Africa.

Especially in Poland we have a pipeline of projects available.

Wind power

One of today's biggest global challenges is the need for more economical, affordable, reliable, clean, safe and renewable electricity. Relying exclusively on coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear fuel to generate electricity is far from optimal. Fossil fuels are neither renewable nor clean.

In recent years wind energy has become one of the most cost-effective renewable energy technologies. Wind turbines are proven and tested technology that provides a safe and sustainable energy supply. On good wind sites, wind energy can already compete with conventional energy production.

About farming in Poland

.

Poland is the ninth largest country in Europe. It borders with seven other states and the Baltic Sea. Most of the country is lowland.

In 1996, 59% or approx. 18.5 million ha of Poland's total area of 31.1 million hectares was arable land. Of this area, arable land is by far the largest part with 14.1 million ha, followed by meadows of 2.8 million ha, permanent pasture of 1.4 million ha. 76% of Poland's utilized agricultural area is arable land, where the corresponding figure for the old EU countries is only 56%.

The primary crop is grain, especially wheat and rye and to a lesser extent, potatoes, fodder crops, sugar beets, oilseeds and legume plants. For most crops, production has in recent years been lower than before the change of the political system. In general, the percentage of self-sufficiency for most crops is between 90 and 100%.

Poland is a major producer of agricultural, horticultural and animal products. Poland is the second largest in all of Europe as to production of fruit - mainly raspberries and redcurrants and apples. Poland is the world's 2nd largest producer of rye and the world's 6th largest producer of potatoes. Finally, Poland has a strong position in the pig and dairy production, as the 7th and 11th largest producer in the world, respectively.

The average farm size in Poland is 8 hectares (compared to an EU average of 18.7 ha). There is a tendency towards more small and large farms at the expense of medium-sized farms. On national basis, the farm size varies from an average of just about 3 hectares in the southern part of Poland, to more than 20 hectares in the north-western part of Poland. 95.5% of Polish farmland is being cultivated in the private sector, of which 87.7% are family owned farms.

A great number of farms are still cultivated using a low consumption of fertilizers and pesticides. The more commercially oriented farms which use modern methods are able to compete with farms in other EU countries both in terms of quality and productivity. The number of these farms has been steadily increasing. The proportion of commercially oriented farms now accounts for 64.4% of the total agricultural production.

Agriculture in the post-war period:

Polish agriculture differs somewhat from agriculture in other former communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe, since agriculture was never fully collectivized in Poland. Successive communist governments finally accepted the privately-owned farms as the key pillar of food production in Poland. The privately-owned farms have therefore been important throughout the whole post-war period. The state owned farms had about ¼ of the area, and the privately-owned farms had approx. ¾. The state owned farms were mainly situated in the areas of Poland which were taken over from Germany after the 2nd World War, and the average size was around 3,300 ha. The privately-owned farms were very small, usually less than 5 hectares. After the political change in 1989 a main part of the state-owned farms were privatized, parceled and sold, or leased to private farmers, and the agriculture went through a radical restructuring.

Poland's climate:

Poland has a temperate climate, but weather conditions are very different depending on the different parts of Poland. If you e.g. take Masuria in the northeastern part of Poland, the climate is more similar to coastal climate because winds blow from the Baltic Sea through the area. This means that the summers are not too hot, and the winters are not too cold, and it is therefore a good climate for plant production.

Introduction to agriculture in Poland

.

Poland has since the fall of communism experienced a rapid development, enhanced by Poland's accession to the EU in 2004. The development has been carried by a natural organic growth generated from within, and this positive trend looks to continue. Polish banks have traditionally been very conservative, and business has not been hit as hard during the financial crisis as many other countries.

Prices of farmland have risen significantly since 2004 and during the financial crisis there has been no real decrease in prices of land. The aforementioned strong development in Poland in general and the natural efficiency improvements of Polish agriculture has maintained a positive development and interest in investment in Polish agriculture. Experts therefore consider that there will be significant appreciations in the value of land in Poland in the years ahead.

Poland is just a few hours' drive from Denmark, Germany and Holland, and if you set up in Poland no matter if it is your principal business or farm number two, it is no farther away than you can always keep a close contact.

Continued rising energy consumption in the world
- and an increasing proportion is produced as alternative energy.

According to the "Global Wind Energy Council", world installed wind capacity increased with an average rate of at least 21% a year between 2009 and 2014. It represents an average annual surcharge of close to 5 GW.

For solar energy, growth is even more impressive. Between 1979 and 2009, solar energy consumed a 33% compound annual growth rate, and it appears that the increase will continue.

Forecasts for growth in biomass-based energy sources depend on the development of technologies that make the energy more accessible to consumers, but there is no doubt about the potential, already with existing technologies.

"Clean energy is our business"

Investment in renewable energy projects is developing rapidly in wind, solar, biomass and so on. Well-helped on behalf of benevolent investors who have seen the potential to contribute to a better environment, flanked by a high return. For a serious investor, it is essential that the security of the investment is independent of economic conditions and global disasters, as long term contracts have generally been concluded which ensure the sale of the energy produced at fixed, high prices.
