Birla Shortlists PE Companies For Retail Company Stake

Aditya Birla Management Corporation Pvt. Ltd. has short-listed L Capital Management SAS, General Atlantic LLC, GIC Pte. Ltd. and Standard Chartered Private Equity Limited to raise $400 million for its consolidated retailing business unit, two people directly familiar with the matter said. Birla will raise $200 million each from two investors in the coming weeks, which values the new retail company at $2.2 billion in enterprise valuation, they added. It was reported in July 2014 that Birla had mandated Standard Chartered Bank to sell stake in the unit that's being created through a merger of Madura Fashion & Lifestyle, Pantaloons and More supermarkets. The four investors are completing due diligence process before Birla decides on the eventual picks. The chosen investors and their investment plan will be built into the scheme of merger being prepared for the three group companies. As part of the plan, Madura will be subsidiarized with public shareholding. Pantaloons and More will be merged with the demerged Madura subsequently. Several foreign investors had looked at the stake-buy opportunity but the aforesaid four names remain in the process. A source said one more sovereign wealth fund might still be in the fray. This could not be confirmed independently.
