MARKUS JOOSTE
Markus Jooste is as well-known as a patron of South African horse racing as he is for his day job as chief executive of furniture manufacturer retailer Steinhoff International. The Johannesburg-listed company sells furniture in Europe, the Pacific Rim and southern Africa and employs 55,000 people; revenues in the year through June 2011 were nearly $5.5 billion. Jooste joined retailer Gommagomma in 1988 as finance director and just a few months later negotiated its sale to Steinhoff's furniture empire. He has become a controversial figure after the South African Revenue Service (equivalent to the IRS) publicly questioned his use of tax shelters to avoid tax earlier this year. Since most of Steinhoff's assets are in Europe, Jooste is considered to be the most travelled businessman in South Africa, apparently spending as many nights on the 11 hour overnight flight from South Africa to Europe as he does at home. He recently moved from Irene near Pretoria to Stellenbosch near Cape Town. With an interest in a nearby wine farm, Jooste is a senior member of the Stellenbosch business clique, alongside Johann Rupert, GT Ferreira and Jannie Mouton.

Markus Jooste: After today's history-making deal, R200bn Steinhoff ready to take on the world By ibnadmin 02.12.2014 0 Comments

Steinhoff's R63bn acquisition of Pepkor today ranks as the biggest transaction in South African corporate history. But for CEO Markus Jooste it is just the start of an exciting new international chapter for what will be a R200bn group. In this special podcast, Jooste explains how the deal is the culmination of a long journey with billionaire entrepreneur Christo Wiese - a relationship which goes back to 1982 when Jooste did the audit on the Pepkor account. - AH
...
Markus Jooste, Chief Executive joins us from his office in Stellenbosch. Markus, how long have you been working on this transaction that you concluded today with Pepkor?
MARKUS JOOSTE: Hi, Alec.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: No Alec, at that stage the Pep transaction was not advanced at all in terms of getting close to a corporate transaction.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Yes.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: I think it's just under 20 Alec, because you must remember the issue share capital now goes up with 800-million shares, so I think it's roughly 19.9, or whatever the case might be, but it's a huge compliment to Steinhoff for us to have the Wiese family investing nearly R45bn into the future of the company.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Throughout the years, he's been a fantastic mentor for me during my whole career and I think the knowledge that Christo and Pieter Erasmus of Pepkor bring to the Steinhoff Executive with their retail knowledge, is just an enormous plus for us.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Well, Pep is a big player in its own right in the global arena, but this puts us together onto a platform with this additional capital Alec, which we can probably… In terms of turnover and size, we will be one of the top ten retailers in the European arena.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Look Alec, one never watches your competitors.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Very much so, Alec.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Well Alec, I remember that well and as you know, since that time we've merged the Conforama and Steinhoff offices whereby today, we have one of the biggest buying offices and personnel in China.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Alec, I'm so scared that I'll wake up and this was a dream.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Look Alec, when you put two companies like Steinhoff and Pep together (although both are run pretty independently and we're getting a fantastic management team with Pep, with Pieter Erasmus and his team), but we're decentralised models so I don't think there'll be big disruptions.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Absolutely, Alec.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Look Alec, one of the things that was clearly part of this deal was the fact that Pieter and his team run Pepkor very independently. Christo's value lies in his wisdom and his advice, and he does that very, very cleverly - to give you guidance in terms of what to do strategically, but he does not interfere with the day-to-day business at all.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: The field of Pepkor and Steinhoff had many synergies and common structures.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: I don't want to comment on another company. I think what John Gnodde and his team have done at Brait during the last four or five years, is absolutely phenomenal.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: They have joined our control pool, which is important for us to have put together so that if one day, they want to exit those shares… In terms of the pre-emptive, that there is a buyer for these shares and that it is part of the future block of South African Holdings - of the South African company - who wants to list it on foreign exchanges.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: I don't think it's so much a question of control, Alec.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: We are meeting at 18:00 in Cape Town with the entire Pepkor management and we are mixing the two cultures together so Alec, as always, it's just work.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Not at all.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: Well Alec, as I said this gives us a platform to virtually, look at anything throughout the world.
...
MARKUS JOOSTE: I think this is just the start of an entire new chapter, Alec.
...
ALEC HOGG: Markus Jooste is the Chief Executive of Steinhoff and this special podcast was brought to you by Sanlam Investments.
