Varun Beverages Limited Key Developments
Ravi Jaipuria To Raise $300 Million Through IPO Of Two Firms
Nov 27 14
Ravi Jaipuria plans to raise $300 million through initial public offerings (IPOs) of Devyani International Ltd. and Varun Beverages Limited by the end of 2016. Proposed IPOs would help RJ Corp Limited (RJ Corp) to support estimated $600 million investment in two companies for expansion through the next few years, Ravi Jaipuria said. He also added, promoters intend to dilute about 10% stake in each of the companies through the IPOs and two RJ Corp entities had to be scaled up, which would need more funds and professionals. "IPOs will be the best way to stabilise businesses," Ravi Jaipuria said. Meanwhile, Jaipuria is also talking to PE investors to raise $100 million -$125 million for about 10% equity stake in Varun Beverages in a pre-IPO deal. "We hope to close this by the end of December," he added. Devyani International is likely to be valued at about $1 billion when it goes public. "About 10 per cent of the promoters' equity stake will be offered during the IPO in 2016," Ravi Jaipuria said. "Through the next two-three years, we will expand all our businesses, both existing operations and through acquisitions," he said, adding he would be interested in taking over Yum! Brands' businesses in west and south India. "We are open, and we'll talk to them. We already have the rights in the north and the east. National rights will certainly make sense," he added. "For fast food and beverages, we will be expanding in India, the African continent and the Saarc (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) region," he said. For expansion, Varun Beverages is eyeing new markets such as Zimbabwe and Bhutan.
Varun Beverages And Devyani International May get Listed
Jun 5 14
Ravi Jaipuria is planning to launch an IPO (Initial Public Offering) for Varun Beverages Limited and Devyani International Ltd., held by RJ Corp Limited in 2015. Ravi Jaipuria has not specified the amount he is looking to raise, but said that this is the right time to tap the capital markets. Balaji Wafers Pvt. Ltd., Manpasand Beverages Ltd, and Cafe Coffee Day are also eyeing possible listing. While CavinKare Pvt. Ltd.’s promoter, C K Ranganathan said that the timing is right to step into the capital market, he said that he is not looking to list his firm. The official stated, “At least not for the next three years. We raised money last year from ChrysCapital and at the moment we are sufficiently funded.” Dhirendra Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, Manpasand Beverages, said that the need for capital coupled with the desire to give existing investors, SAIF Partners, an exit route is what prompted his decision to consider an IPO. “We have appointed Kotak Mahindra Capital and India Infoline to manage the issue. The IPO should be out in about six to eight months,” he said.
