ChrysCapital raises $700 M to maintain its share in NSE

ChrysCapital raises another $700 Million, continuing its shareholding in NSE shares.

The National Stock Exchange has been increasing, not just in terms of financials but also net worth. India’s private equity ChrysCapital raised new funds worth $700 Million and rebought their purchased themselves out to maintain their stake in NSE.

This “continuation fund” allows ChrysCapital to maintain its stake in NSE, where it first invested in 2016. This fund originally belonged to the ChrysCapital Fund VI. Since the life of this fund is ending, new investors have invested through ChrysCapital.HarbourVest Partners, LGT Capital Partners, and Pantheon Ventures were the main investors.

What Is Continuation Fund And How Does It Help Investors?

A continuation fund is a solution to overcome the limitations imposed on private equity. As a customary practice, any traditional private equity model has a maximum investment period of the 10-year term. Funds were expected to get liquidated once the term ends.

  • The continuation fund helps avoid liquidating an asset that has not yet realized its full potential. Instead, the same fund sponsor (here ChrysCapital) sells this asset to new investors.
  • This transaction helped old investors a chance to book their gains on the investment and allowed the continuation fund investors to invest in the exchange. 
  • The Fund VI investors were also offered a rollover in their equity as an alternative form of consideration.

Thus, Fund VI will continue as a significant, long-term shareholder in the NSE.

The $700 Million Transaction Sets New Records 

The increasing investor interest in NSE made this an oversubscribed transaction, one of its kind in India and one of the largest in Asia-Pacific.

HarbourVest Partners and LGT Capital Partners headed the structuring of this continuation fund. They were given exclusive financial advice by UBS Private Funds Group. Cooley LLP advised ChrysCapital and Kirkland & Ellis LLP acted for HarbourVest Partners and LGT Capital Partners.
