PRIVATE EQUITY AND JOINT VENTURES
While the credit markets have tightened, debt has become scarce, more expensive and with tighter covenants. Major deals are now decided by auction leading to high acquisition prices. Exiting has become harder due to collapse of the IPO market. We believe to succeed, private equity firms must have access to operational expertise. That is what Shriyai aims to achieve.
We identify the PE to take participation in an enterprise, carry out due diligence, draw a business growth strategy, catapult the growth, install the control mechanisms and adequate safeguards, nurture the portfolio and work out an exit route for the PE.
