Indian Private Equity Report 2009
1. Executive Summary

PE investment plummets for the second successive year

Most Indian Private Equity (PE) stalwarts spent the Year 2009 ‘waiting out’ the downturn on the sidelines. The slide in investments that began in 2008, showed no signs of abating. In fact, it got steeper with PE investments in CY2009 tumbling 62% to $4.3bn (250 deals), from $11.2bn (344 deals) in CY2008, a more severe drop than the 42% Year-on-Year (YoY) fall seen in CY2008.

This was not because the Indian economy was going through the worst of times. Far from it, the resilient economic growth, increasing inflows through Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) & Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), a surge in the markets in the post-election period and, towards the end of the year, improving numbers bringing a muchneeded dose of optimism back into corporate boardrooms - there was much to cheer about in India during 2009. Yet, with the global markets still too far from recovering, there was little steam to turn the wheels of the private equity (PE) industry.

Crisis-battered Limited Partners (LPs) continued to breathe down the necks of PE players, their cautious approach creating a difficult climate for fund raising and stricter due diligence killing many a deal before being inked. All those looking forward to pick up bargain deals at the start of the year were shown the red light by Indian promoters, unwilling to play ball at lower valuations. Also, once the market took off post-March, valuations became an even bigger concern. Further, strong stock market performance gave rise to alternate means of funding, with QIPs becoming the flavour of the season.

With the going being far from smooth, the PE players in India spent 2009 doing what they were supposed to do -- bolstering their strong-performing companies, working hard on the not-so-well performing ones, jumping on any exit opportunities that came up and, very selectively, investing. And now as we push into 2010, though the deal flow is expected to pick up, it is very clear, it will be a long wait before India reaches the euphoric $19.2bn levels of PE investing seen in India in 2007.
