Baring Private Equity Asia Key Developments

Bain Cap, Baring Asia Eye $500 Million Stake In L&T Finance

Bain Capital, LLC and Baring Private Equity Asia are vying for a sizable minority stake in L&T Finance Holdings Limited (BSE:533519) as L&T looks to raise up to $500 million, people familiar with the matter said. While The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) and Advent too have fielded their interests in the deal, Bain Capital and Baring Asia are said to be more aggressive, sources added. Some private equity firms are also in race for sizable minority stake in L&T Finance.

METRO Reportedly Eyeing Classic Fine Foods

METRO AG (DB:MEO) is said to be interested in acquiring Classic Fine Foods (S) Pte Ltd. Reuters reported citing sources close to the matter as saying that Metro is offering between $300 million and $400 million Classic Fine Foods. According to the report, among the potential bidders are also Holdings Pty, Ltd. (Manassen Foods), DKSH Holding Ltd. (SWX:DKSH), Bain Capital, LLC, and Baring Private Equity Asia. Classic Fine Foods is currently owned by EQT Corporation (NYSE:EQT). The news report mentioned that Metro, EQT, DKSH and Bain did not comment when contacted by Reuters.

Investors Reportedly Eyes Stake In REL

Malvinder Singh and Shivinder Singh, the promoters of Religare Enterprises Limited (BSE:532915) (REL) have put their stake on block, said two people familiar with the development, including an investor who was approached for the deal. The promoters hold 50.93% in REL which is the holding company for all its financial services businesses. "They have been in the market for the last 2-3 months and have been scouting for buyers. But they haven't been able to receive very good response as people don't want to buy the entire gamut of assets but a few selective ones," said the first person mentioned above. The Economic Times reported that Baring Private Equity Asia, Bain Capital Ltd and Multiples Alternate Asset Management Private Limited are in discussion to acquire the promoter stake. We are still awaiting a response from REL. Since the promoters hold a majority in REL, anyone willing to acquire it will need to make an open offer, in keeping with regulations. "They have hired a foreign investment bank to sell their stake and have been meeting with global buyout funds and assessing the valuations they can fetch for the asset," said the second person mentioned above.
