DoMS student releases report on PE-VC market. TVS Capital MD, Mr. Gopal Srinivasan accepts first copy

This September witnessed an event that rewrote the history of DoMS in bold golden letters. Ashish Deshmukh, a second year MBA student, in his summer project, analyzed the scenario of Venture Capital and Private Equity in India in the year 2009, under the able guidance of faculty member Dr. Thillai Rajan A.. The studies and learning’s were compiled in the form of a report and released in the presence of Mr. Gopal Srinivasan, Chairman and Managing Director, TVS Capital Funds, who also received the first copy. The report was the fist of its kind for the PE-VC market in the country from a neutral point of view.

In a gist, the report spoke about the time from 2004-2008 that had been a glorious period for Venture Capital and Private Equity (VC & PE) investment activity in India. It was during this time that India emerged among the global leaders in the VC & PE industry. Going beyond the investment trends, the report tried to address some of the interesting questions such as: Is it true that money is chasing deals in India? Does the state of capital markets influence venture investment activity? What kind of new companies are attracting VC & PE investments? Are investors itching for exits? The report brought out the intention of the FII's who targeted stable companies during their growth stage. In 5 years, there have been 252 exit incidents, 1503 companies that were targeted, 1912 transactions and Rs. 4.19 trillion of investment.

Mr. Srinivasan appreciated the report in extremely strong words and encouraged the department to come up with a yearly report like this. He complemented Dr. Thillairajan, the project coordinator. The report he said, would benefit the industry tremendously. He sighted examples saying that great companies like Apple and Cisco were supported by VC & PE in their initial stages. Mr. Srivivasan is a member of the CII and is working with SEBI and the RBI to check regulatory measures to attract VC & PE. The target is to have their investments achieve a 2% share of the GDP.

He spoke about the 4 E's of capital: Ecosystem, Environment, Entrepreneur and Excellence. He supported the report's finding that PE is local business and with a long range business, e needs sharpshooters on the ground! He promised the help of the CII's PE unit for more networking with fund companies. He concluding by saying that "capital goes where it’s welcome and stays where it’s comfortable".
