Rajat Sharma Reportedly In Talks To Buy 9X Media

Rajat Sharma reportedly considering acquiring stake in 9X MEDIA PVT. LTD. Rajat Sharma is in talks to acquire a controlling stake in New Silk Route backed 9X Media in a deal that could value the company at upwards of INR 2 billion, persons directly aware of the matter told Economic Times. Rajat Sharma and his wife Ritu Dhawan are the largest shareholders of Independent News Services Pvt. Ltd. (INS), which owns the popular Hindi news channel India TV. A team from Independent News Services is working closely with private equity fund NSR Partners to arrive at a mutually acceptable shareholders agreement, according to the people referred to earlier. Rajat Sharma may seek to partially finance the proposed transaction by raising additional funds from existing investors in Independent News Services such as Keyur Patel, who owns stakes in INS through CV Global Holdings. Rajat Sharma did not respond to emailed queries and text messages from Economic Times. A spokesperson for NSR declined comment when contacted. Pradeep Guha, Chief Executive Officer of 9X Media, did not respond to a detailed questionnaire until press time.
