Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund Temasek Holdings’ has exited its investment in multiplex chain Fame India in two bulk deals on Friday.
The firm sold its 13.5% stake in Fame for a little more than Rs 14 crore to Gulshan Investment and Shail Investments. The identity of these two firms is not known.
Interestingly, Temasek had bought around 10% stake from PE firm India Value Fund in a secondary deal in 2005. The stake was then acquired at a share price of more than Rs 62.50. The stake was held by Temasek through two of its subsidiaries – Aranda Investments Mauritius Pte Ltd and Dunearn Investments Mauritius Pte Ltd. The shares of Fame India closed at Rs 30.75 on Friday, up by over 5%.
This will be the second open market exit for Temasek this year. Earlier, it sold its stake in container-freight stations’ operator Gateway Distriparks to a subsidiary of Allcargo Global Logistics.
