Agglomeration 4.0

Agglomeration 4.0

Our Agglomeration 4.0 Umbrella Model

With Agglomeration™ 2.0, profitable companies swap their private shares with "public" shares of the Holding Corporation at an agreed upon multiple of annual post-tax net earnings plus net assets.

Agglomeration 4.0 incorporates the best practices of Agglomeration 2.0 with PCI's Financial Management Tools (Agglomeration 3.0) and PCI's Human Capital Tools (Agglomeration 4.0). 

Company owners are then financially incentivized to accelerate their growth with additional resources of the Holding Corp, including skill transfer of best in class practices, affordable access to 4IR's latest technology breakthroughs, cross selling to other group companies and where appropriate, zero cost funding for new growth projects.

Using our Agglomeration 2.0 approach, the Holding Corp is focused on accretive acquisitions and organic growth in a managed way, to ensure steady increase in shareholder value, measured as:

  1. EBITDA,
  2. Earnings Per Share (EPS),
  3. Price/Earnings (P/E) ratio.

PLUS, gradually implementing:

  • useful external 4IR technological breakthroughs,
  • PCI's expertise in using Financial Management Tools (Agglomeration 3.0), and
  • PCI's expertise in the use of its HC Tools (Agglomeration 4.0).

Thus, each acquisition will be selected by its contribution potential to the holding company and its ability to (a) improve shareholder value and (b) grow organically within the group.

Are you ready to join an Agglomeration? 

Find out if an Agglomeration is right for you by answering the following questions:

  • Are you debt free?
  • Did you survive the Covid-19 economic onslaught?
  • Do you have at least €250,000 in annual after-tax net profit?
  • Are you willing to work collaboratively with other partners and people?
  • Are you a leader in your field of business, and have won awards and plaudits?
  • Do you operate in an industry where you feel there are lots of similar or synergistic businesses that could benefit from collaboratively coming together to create a major player?

If you said yes to all of these questions an Agglomeration could be for you.

  • Do you want to retire within the next 12 months?
  • Can you be a kind of a jerk?

If you said yes to one of these 2 questions, then this might NOT be the right vehicle for you.

Social Responsibility

With each Agglomeration, 1% of the shares gets put into a charitable trust in the name of the company, to help SME's achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operations.


Although entrepreneurs are the individuals who make things happen, only a few manage to crack through and see a huge success. Sidelining most financial institutions, the Agglomeration Model shows how normal business owners, across all business sectors, can come together to use certain capital markets ("public") for what they were originally intended: funding the growth of great businesses that are creating real value in the world for their clients and the wider community.


“Communist China has set up a Stock Exchage in Beijing just for SME's so that it can enhance a multi-layered capital market, that improves the financing system for SME's and drive innovation and upgrade China’s economy.”

Why does that not exist in the Western world?
