3. Indicators of Empowerment

3.2 Ownership

3.2.1 Guiding Principle Stakeholders commit to increase black participation across the entire spectrum of the domestic MT & SI value chain in ownership, management control  and  operational  involvement  and  design  appropriate  funding mechanisms to facilitate the process. The ownership component will be measured against the exercisable voting rights and the economic interest that the black equity participants are entitled to. This principle is linked to the long-term strategy of growing the domestic Maritime Transport & Services Industry so as to ensure that B-BBEE does not become a zero-sum game. The ownership contribution by enterprises in the MT & SI refers to direct ownership and is specifically aimed at any enterprise that has a MT & SI domestic asset base. There is also a need to measure the level of net economic interest that is possessed by the black equity participants. Net economic interest is the unencumbered equity stake that the black shareholders hold.
