Changes in the Hillary Group
Perhaps the biggest challenge was to realise that the Company had grown beyond a family business and that a new era had dawned. In 1991 the Company became a limited public company. Approximately 10% of the shares were sold to employees at book value. In 2004 more shares were sold to Management. In 2007 outside investors were welcomed as shareholders resulting in 18.5% black interest in the Company. In 2013 an Employees Ownership Scheme was established and today we can boast of 25% Black Ownership. Further to this in early 2015 Hillary purchased a controlling share in Ya Rena Civils (Pty) Ltd with the intention of increasing the service we can offer to Clients.
