Hitachi Reportedly Leads To Acquire Stake In Crompton Greaves

Hitachi Ltd. (TSE:6501) has emerged as the front-runner to buy the Avantha Group's stake in Crompton Greaves Limited (BSE:500093), two persons familiar with the development said. Goldman Sachs, which has been appointed by the Gautam Thapar to scout for a buyer, has zeroed in on Hitachi. "Given the pace of discussion, it appears Hitachi and Thapars would enter into formal agreement soon," one of the two persons said. Though the discussions are yet to be concluded, the deal is expected to value Crompton Greaves at over INR 150 billion, said one of the persons. Thapar owns 42.7% of Crompton Greaves, and the entire holding could be up for sale if deal were to be consummated. "The promoters expect the company to be valued at $3 billion (INR 18,000 crore) as against its market value of INR 11,500 crore. However, it would be premature to estimate the right valuation as of now," this person said. According to Economic Times, an Avantha group spokesperson declined to respond in detail to queries saying they did not comment on "baseless rumours". "As a policy across the Avantha Group, we do not respond to baseless rumours and speculations," she said in reply to a questionnaire. According to Economic Times, Gautam Thapar did not respond to text messages to his mobile phone and officials from Hitachi and Goldman Sachs did not respond to email queries sent on April 14, 2014.
