India Private Equity Deal Value Up 12% in 2013, M&A Deal Value 25% Higher: VCCEdge India Deal Report

NEW DELHI, India, January 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Private equity investments in India have increased 12% in value terms from $9.5 billion in 2012 to $10.68 billion in 2013, according to annual transactions data released by VCCEdge, financial data platform of VCCircle.com.

Deal Volume on the other hand dipped 13% to 655 deals from 751 deals in 2012, VCCEdge data showed.

"This shows private equity investors have been investing larger monies in fewer companies in 2013, an indication of winning companies attracting larger capital," Sahad P.V., Founder & Editor, VCCircle.com, said. "PE investors have been choosy."

Financials, Consumer Discretionary, and Information Technology were the most targeted sectors with investments worth $2.7 billion, $1.8 billion, and $1.6 billion, respectively. Together, the three sectors accounted for nearly 58% of the total private equity capital invested in 2013, the VCCEdge data showed.

The $1.26 billion investment by Qatar Foundation Endowment in Partners in New Delhi based Bharti Airtel Ltd. was the biggest deal announced during the year. This is followed by the $470 million investment in Alliance Tire Group by KKR India Advisors for a 90% stake.

Private Equity Exits

Private equity exit transactions in 2013 amounted to about $3.6 billion coming from 158 exit deals compared to the $4.86 billion worth of exits spread across 172 deals in CY2012.

However, the industry saw some of the larger PE exits like Warburg Pincus exiting Alliance Tire Group and TPG exiting Shriram Transport Finance.
