July 31st 2017: Hero FinCorp looks to raise Rs 800 crore from ChrysCap

Hero FinCorp looks to raise Rs 800 crore from ChrysCap:

Hero FinCorp, the vehiclefinance arm of two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorpBSE 0.03 %, is looking to raise about $120 million, or Rs 800 crore, from India-focused private equity (PE) firm ChrysCapital, two people aware of the development said.

In September 2016, Hero FinCorp had raised about Rs 1,000 crore in the first round from investors, including ChrysCapital. The PE firm and financial services firm Credit Suisse had invested around Rs 700 crore in the company, while about Rs 300 crore was invested by its parent, Hero Group. “Hero Fin-Corp has sent out feelers to ChrysCapital for the second round of investment. The deal is in an initial stage,” said a person close to the development.

The second round of fund-raising is towards the company’s plans for expansion and buying stake in other NBFCs, another person in the know said. “It makes perfect sense for Hero FinCorp to sell some stake at this point in time. The only problem is valuations; the sellers have quite high expectations,” said another person in the know.

July 31st 2017: Catholic Syrian Bank weighs fundraising options as talks with Fairfax collapse

Catholic Syrian Bank weighs fundraising options as talks with Fairfax collapse:

The board of Catholic Syrian Bank (CSB) met on Monday to discuss various capital raising plans of the bank after talks with Prem Watsa-owned Fairfax Financial Holdings collapsed owing to valuation differences, said three people who attended the meeting.

“The board is currently weighing three options: whether to revive the IPO (initial public offering) plan or to sell 5% stake to multiple investors or go ahead with a strategic stake sale of 51%,” said T.S. Anantharaman, chairman of the Kerala-based bank and one of the three cited earlier.

“We will be taking a decision very soon,” he added.

Mint had reported on 13 July that the bank was reconsidering a share sale, three years after it had filed a draft red herring prospectus to raise Rs400 crore.

In June 2015, markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) had approved its public offering.

The plan was, however, dropped because of volatile market conditions prevailing at that time.

“We need to raise capital which will meet the requirement for the next three years,” said the second of the three people cited earlier, on condition of anonymity.
