US-based private equity firm Advent International has acquired Bengaluru-based rigid plastics packaging solutions provider Manjushree Technopak.

The acquisition marks the exit of Mumbai-based PE firm Kedara Capital, selling its entire 40% stake to Advent for an undisclosed amount. As a part of the deal, Advent has also acquired a portion of the promoter Kedia family’s holdings to gain a majority stake in Manjushree Technopak.

Post acquisition, Vimal Kedia, Founder and Managing Director of Manjushree, along with other senior management members will remain with the company.

According to reports, the deal is expected to value the Bengaluru-based company at around ₹2,440 crores.

Founded by Vimal Kedia in 1983, Manjushree Technopak provides rigid plastic solutions to a wide range of FMCG industry verticals including dairy, food products, agrochemicals, pharmaceutical, home care and personal care.

With presence across India and 15 other countries, serves large FMCG multinationals, generating more than ₹890 crores in revenues. Some of its notable clients include Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, P&G, Nestle, and Himalaya, among many others.

Talking about the investment, Shweta Jalan, Managing Director and Head, India, Advent International, said, “The rigid plastic packaging market is expected to expand by 15% per year over the next five years, driven by underlying growth in consumer-end markets, the continued shift from glass and paper to plastic packaging, and the introduction of new products. Manjushree Technopack is the market leader in an industry with strong growth tailwinds.”

Earlier in November 2016, Manjushree acquired Delhi-based packaging firm Varahi Ltd for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition was made to enable the firm to expand its production capacity and customer base, and strengthen its foothold in North India.

The latest deal marks Advent International’s seventh investment in India. Other Advent investments in India include Innerwear brand Dixcy Textiles, ASK Group, a wealth and investment management business, QuEST, a global engineering solutions provider, Crompton Greaves, and CARE Hospitals.
