Patanjali looking for venture funds

Friday, January 12, 2018

Baba Ramdev-led Patanjali Ayurved is in talks with several foreign venture funds for investment in its ongoing projects like food processing units and manufacturing units, said a company official.

The Haridwar-based company has held several meetings with leading fund managers in Mumbai in last couple of months through financial services company UBS and IDFC.

Patanjali Managing Director Acharya Balkrishna also participated in the meetings, he added. "We had meetings with the world's largest equity funds through the letter circulated by UBS and then it was facilitated by IDFC also. Through them, we met over a dozen venture capitalists in last couple of months," Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala told PTI.

Confirming reports that Patanjali was in talks with French luxury group LVMH, he said as per Patanjali's policy, it would go with its own terms for such fundings, which means no stake, no share and lower rate of interest.

"Our terms are very simple that we would not allot any share or stake of Patanjali to them. We want the money simply in the form of loan, which should have lower interest rate than that of bank," he added.

Moreover, Patanjali would accept "any loan or borrowing in Indian Rupee only", as per its conditions. LVMH, which is in the process of investing around Rs 5,000 crore, is evaluating the offers.
