Hero FinCorp set to close PE fundraising worth $100 million

Hero FinCorp, which took birth as Hero Honda FinLease Ltd in December 1991, recorded a turnover of Rs771 crore in 2015-16 against Rs298.62 crore in 2014-15

Mumbai: Hero FinCorp Ltd, the financial services arm of India’s largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp Ltd, is close to raising around $100 million from private equity (PE) investors, two people aware of the development said.

Singapore investment firm Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd and India-focused PE fund ChrysCapital LLC are in the final stages of talks with Hero, one of the two persons said. The deal could be closed within a couple of days, this person added, on condition of anonymity.

According to this person, both Temasek and ChrysCapital are equally keen on a stake and shares could be split between the two.

Hero FinCorp promoters, who had initially planned to sell 15% stake for $85 million may instead sell about 20-25% stake for $100-120 million, the second of the two persons cited above said.

Hero FinCorp planned to raise $100 million (Rs.650 crore) by selling a significant minority stake to PE funds to fuel its expansion into new areas, Mint reported in November last year. The company hired global investment bank Credit Suisse Group AG to find buyers and discussions had started, the Mint report added.

Spokespersons at Temasek and ChrysCapital declined to comment while an e-mail sent to Abhimanyu Munjal, chief executive officer at Hero Fincorp, and a spokesperson at Credit Suisse on Thursday went unanswered.

Hero FinCorp, which took birth as Hero Honda FinLease Ltd in December 1991, recorded a turnover of Rs.771 crore in 2015-16 against Rs.298.62 crore in 2014-15.

The non-banking finance company (NBFC) has a presence at over 1,000 retail financing touch-points across Hero MotoCorp’s network and has partnered with more than 200 satisfied corporate clients, according to the company website.

SEBI to delist 4200 Companies from stock exchanges to give exit to investors.

In a mammoth clean-up exercise, markets regulator Sebi is planning to push for delisting of over 4,200 listed companies whose shares are not being traded, and promoters refusing to give exit opportunity to investors would face strict penal actions.

These include over 1,200 companies whose shares are listed on national bourses BSE and NSE but where trading has been suspended for various non-compliance issues for over seven years. Besides, there are over 3,000 companies listed on various regional stock exchanges that have become defunct, Sebi Chairman U K Sinha said on Wednesday.

He also warned of strong action against the auditors who close their eyes to the lapses in the financial accounts of listed firms.

“So far, we have had a hands-off approach on auditors, but we will take action if something serious comes to our notice.

Auditors cannot go scot-free if they have been certifying the books for years without pointing finger at the lapses,” Sinha said.

The exercise for over 4,200 listed firms would be completed this year. Such exercises would be taken up going forward to clean up the market from what the Sebi chief described as “a source of nuisance”.

In an interaction here, Sinha said delisting of these companies is one of the key focus areas for the regulator in the current fiscal.

“We are going to reduce the number of listed companies. We have already reduced the number of stock exchanges by successfully closing several defunct or non-functional regional exchanges. They were centres of risk and there were series of litigations but we have won all of them.

“Now our target is to reduce the number of listed companies where no or little trading is taking place,” he said, adding that it was not something to be happy about to have maximum number of listed companies if there was no trading activity happening.

“There are two sub-sets — first there are over 3,000 companies exclusively listed on regional exchanges and then the second is the list of companies where trading has been suspended for a long time. To start with, we have decided on a seven-year threshold and there are over 1,200 such listed companies together on BSE and NSE,” he said.
