Warburg Pincus LLC, Actis Capital, LLP and IndusInd Bank Limited (BSE:532187) are in the race to acquire Sharekhan Limited, valued at INR 30 billion, three people directly familiar with the matter said. Some of the other private equity funds that had shown preliminary interest in the transaction are no longer in the fray. A top IndusInd Bank official declined to comment while a spokesperson for Warburg Pincus said, "As you know, the firm does not comment on such activities and deal-related queries. Hence Warburg Pincus is unable to share any perspectives or comments in this regard." Actis South Asia head JM Trivedi in an emailed response said: "We do not comment on market speculation."

Few More Bidders Added In Sharekhan List

Actis Capital, LLP, Warburg Pincus LLC, two Indian banks, and a foreign strategic investor have joined the race to acquire Sharekhan Limited. "Though a couple of banks have shown interest, it is unlikely that a deal would be signed. It needs RBI clearance and the same will create an indefinite delay in closing the transaction," said a person close to the transaction. Actis and Warburg Pincus Spokespersons said the they would not comment on speculations, while an email sent to Sharekhan did not draw any reply till the time of going to press.
