The level of their performance is of very high quality.”

We are happy to say that Synergy continues to deliver on their promises made at the start of our relationship and have positioned itself as our advisor of choice.””

“Synergy Consulting (“Synergy”) was engaged by Electricidade de Moçambique (“EDM”) in 2017 to provide transaction advisory services for divestment of a part of its stake in the 400 MW gas fired IPP at Temane in Inhambane province of Mozambique.

As the Transaction Advisor, Synergy managed the process professionally and in a transparent manner leading to considerable interest from the developer and investor community and ultimate selection of a preferred partner for EDM. Synergy’s sector knowledge, relationship with the developer/investor groups and speed of execution were critical in delivery of the assignment in a timely manner.

We thank Synergy for their efforts and wish them all the success.”
