MedPlus Health Services Reportedly Up For Sale

MedPlus Health Services Pvt. Ltd. reportedly is up for sale. Madhukar Gangadi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MedPlus Health Services, along with a clutch of private equity investors including Mount Kellett Capital Management LP, TVS Capital Funds Limited and India Venture Advisors have put MedPlus Health Services up for sale. Credit Suisse Group AG (SWX:CSGN) has been appointed to look for strategic buyers and buyout funds who can acquire a controlling 51% to 74% stake in the Hyderabad headquartered chain. Medplus was earlier looking to raise fresh capital but now the mandate has changed to a potential outright sale, one of the sources mentioned above said. Source added, domestic players and buyout funds have already been approached. "The investors want to exit. There will be some primary issuance of equity as well. After this the promoter's stake will come down to around 26%," another person aware of the developments said. With revenues of around INR 12 billion to INR 13 billion, the investors and promoters are expecting a significant premium of two times sales, valuing the company at around INR 27 billion, said three persons with direct knowledge of the matter. The company management has decided not to respond to the queries. Madhukar Gangadi too did not want to respond.
