Sequoia Capital Key Developments

Bain Capital May Reportedly Invest $250 Million In Star Health

Bain Capital, LP is in early talks to reportedly invest as much as $250 million in Star Health and Allied Insurance Company Limited for a significant minority stake valuing the company at a billion dollars. The transaction, if successful, will come as a pre-IPO round of funding and will buy out shares held by other financial investors including Sequoia Capital, ICICI Venture Funds Management Company Limited, Tata Capital Limited and Oman Insurance Company P.S.C. (DFM:OIC). Kotak Mahindra Capital is running a formal process to find the investor and a transaction may happen in the calendar year itself, said one of the sources. When contacted, Bain Capital and ICICI Venture declined to comment. A mail sent to Star Health, Sequoia Capital, Oman Insurance remained unanswered till the time of going to press.

Star Health and Allied Insurance May List Shares

Star Health and Allied Insurance Company Limited may list shares. Star Health is considering selling shares to the public, in part to provide some private equity investors a route to exit, said three people in know of the matter. “Since getting buyers for multiple holders’ stake is becoming tough, the company is exploring an initial public offering,” said one of the people. “The stock market is doing well and private equity investors believe they will get better valuation if they list it on the exchanges than do a secondary deal,” said another person. Star Health Chairman V Jagannathan, however, said the company has no plans to list. Sequoia Capital said, “We do not have any comments on this.” Others, including ICICI Venture Funds Management Company Limited, Apis Partners LLP, Tata Capital Limited and Star Health, did not respond to email queries.
