Failure of IPO and reliance on private equity

In 2007, City Ventures and UTI Ventures invested Rs 300 crore in Ind-Barath, raising the private equity stake in the company to 35%.[1]

In 2009, private equity firms City Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and Bessermer Venture Partners invested $100 million in Ind-Barath, picking up an 18% share in the company.[1]

In 2009, Ind-Barath filed a draft prospectus to raise more than $200 million via an initial public offering (IPO).[5] The IPO attempt failed "due to volatile market conditions."[6]

In March, UK-based private equity firm 3i Group said that its India infrastructure fund was investing about $45 million for a minority share of Ind-Barath Energy (Utkal) Ltd.[5]

In August 2011 a press report stated that the Ind-Barath company was seeking to raise Rs 1,000 crore through private equity, after shelving its IPO.[6]

In December 2011, Reuters reported that Ind-Barath was in talks to raise about $150 million from TPG Capital and Apollo Global Management.[5]
