Objective

Investment Objectives

Our key objective is to achieve above-average medium to long term capital appreciation through private investments in equity and equity-linked instruments in unlisted, emerging and growth-oriented companies in the small and medium enterprise (SME) segment. We aim to invest in companies operating in high growth sectors and create significant value for our investors by seeking to accelerate the growth curve of our portfolio companies, by leveraging our extensive network and experience.

Equity Opportunities

We provide a combination of equity capital, strategic support and other value added services, playing a proactive role in growing the business of small and medium-sized enterprises in India. We look at business investment opportunities in companies that have/require a low fixed-asset base but can scale up rapidly with the infusion of working capital. We are very ROI and cash flow focused, and do not invest in cyclical businesses. We invest in highly scalable companies at valuations which allow us to generate our minimum target return. Differentiation through application of technology is a key theme underpinning our portfolio approach.

Investment Strategies

Projected Cash Flows for the Venture

We take an extremely critical look at historical and projected cash flows and subject them to a thorough sensitivity analysis. We invest in a company only when we are satisfied with a business’ ability to generate positive cash flows.

Management Team at Investee Company

We look for a very strong and capable management team, in terms of their background, experience, credibility and reach in the marketplace. We do not invest in companies that do not possess the requisite management bandwidth. A reference check is done on all key management personnel without exception.

The Venture's Customers

We believe in the good old saying ‘Customer is King’ and would prefer to invest in companies which have demonstrated their ability to create a solid, marquee customer base. Customer references form an integrated part of our evaluation process.
