Silk and jewellery retailer Kalyan Group in talks with top PE firms to raise up to $250M

14 March, 2014

Indian silk and jewellery retailer Kalyan Group is holding separate talks with Blackstone, TPG Capital Management and Temasek Holdings to sell a minority stake for $200-$250 million, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

The sources said the talks with the private equity firms were ongoing, and no decisions had been made as to the exact amount of the stake sale.

“At this point in time, we cannot give a time frame for the conclusion of the deal,” said one of the sources.

When contacted, Ramesh Kalyanaraman, executive director of Kalyan Group, told Reuters the company is in talks with various investors, but declined to name them or provide details.

Temasek, TPG, and Blackstone Group LP each declined to comment.

Kalyan Group, based in southern India, runs silk and jewellery retail chains across the country.

The company has annual revenues of 94 billion Indian rupees and hopes to touch Rs 150 billion next year. It also plans to expand into Malaysia and Singapore next year in anticipation of a potential listing in 2-3 years, Kalyanaraman said.
