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.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
