Investors Reportedly Eyes Stake In REL
May 4 15
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.
