Carlyle Is Said to Sell $283 Million Stake in India’s HDFC

Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Carlyle Group LP is selling 20 million shares in Housing Development Finance Corp., valued at about 14 billion rupees ($283 million), according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

Enough orders have been submitted to cover the shares being offered, said one of the people, who declined to be identified because the details are confidential. Deutsche Bank AG is handling the sale, said the people.

Carlyle, which invested in HDFC in 2007, will hold a less than 4 percent stake in the mortgage lender after this sale, the people said. HDFC shares closed at 697.85 rupees yesterday, up 1.4 percent.

Randall Whitestone, a spokesman for Carlyle, declined to comment.
