Baring Private Equity Asia Key Developments

Investors Reportedly Eye Stake In Global Hospitals

Investors including AT Capital, TPG Growth and Baring Private Equity Asia have held talks to invest up to $150 million in Global Hospitals Private Limited owned about 45% by Everstone Capital Management and Anand Rathi Financial Services Limited, Times of India reported citing people directly aware of the matter. The promoters including a group of medical professionals led by K Ravindranath have a right of first refusal to buy the stake at a pre-determined price by the end of December 2014. AT Capital and TPG Growth have progressed with the discussions while Baring Private Equity Asia's preliminary meetings haven't made much headway. PremjiInvest looked at the transaction but passed it. TPG Growth and Baring Private Equity Asia declined to comment on speculation, while AT Capital could not be reached for immediate comment.

Serco Global Services To Be Reportedly Sold

Serco Global Services AMEAA is to be sold by Serco Group plc (LSE:SRP). Serco Global will either be sold to a UK-based BPO firm or a consortium of private equity (PE) firms led by its Chief Executive Officer Susir Kumar, according to three people familiar with the development. The sale could be worth INR 15 billion-INR 20 billion and is to be closed by end January 2015, said the first person, an investment banker, who did not wish to be named as he is not authorized to speak to reporters. "This looks more like a private equity deal, with firms like Baring Private Equity Asia, The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) as well as two-three other firms looking to buy out some part of Serco's BPO business. Susir Kumar could likely be involved in the deal, as he has good relationships with private equity firms, after he brought about great returns for Blackstone for the Intelenet buyout," he added. " Capita plc (LSE:CPI), another UK-based BPO may be interested in buying out Serco's BPO assets, as it is a good fit for them. However, in case the valuation for the deal falls short, Serco may be bought by a consortium of 4-5 private equity firms, led by Susir Kumar, who will get to keep a stake in the company through this process," said the second person who also did not want to be named. He added that Serco is likely to make an announcement in this regard by January 2015. The third person, a senior Serco employee who also did not want to be named, said Kumar has put forth certain conditions for the sale of the BPO business that include "firstly, the interest of the employees-meaning that there should be no job losses and all India employees should be absorbed by the buyer, that the buyer is financially sound with the capacity of expanding Serco's BPO business, and that there will be no downsizing of the business". Mint added that Susir Kumar did not respond to calls or emails. An email sent to Capita went unanswered. A Carlyle Group spokesperson said the firm did not wish to comment. Richard Barton, Managing Partner for Newgate Communications, which manages media relations for Baring Private Equity Asia, said in an emailed response to a query regarding the Serco sale that the company does not comment on market rumors. Marcus De Ville, group head of media relations for Serco Group Plc, said in an email that "the future strategic direction for the business, as per Serco's statement to the LSE on 10 November, would be as a business to government provider focused on justice and immigration, defense, transport, citizen services and healthcare."
