John Distilleries Limited Key Developments

John Distilleries Is In Merger Talks

John Distilleries Limited is in discussions with multinationals to explore merger and acquisition deals. “I am open to discuss anything that makes economic sense,” Chairman Paul P John said. Several key foreign liquor companies are keen to consolidate their businesses in India’s liquor industry, which has just a handful of national players, but a multitude of regional players, he said. “Globally, India is perhaps one of the few growth markets for the liquor makers. Therefore, it makes sense for them to get a foothold through acquisitions.” John, however, denied that his company had been approached by either Pernod-Ricard SA (ENXTPA:RI) or Diageo plc (LSE:DGE). The chairman added his company is ready for talks with any potential buyer. “I will also discuss with my equity partners and they, too, are open about it. I am here for doing business.” Gaja Capital Partners invested INR 750 million in John Distilleries and holds up to 40% stake. The company does not look for further infusion of funds as it has sufficient funding options, John said. The company is also in talks with a few domestic liquor makers for acquiring some of their brands. John added the company is entering the premium segment in a big way and has recently introduced a few brands in that category. “Slowly, the number of economy brands in the country will get phased out as the income levels of consumers go up.”
