Shriram Group founder R Thyagarajan told the Economic Times Piramal could either buy TPG’s stake or the business could issue fresh shares to allow the investment, adding that Piramal and Shriram had agreed a deal in principle.
The business is being valued at INR65bn ($1bn) according to ET sources.
In May TPG made a seven times return exiting Shriram Transport Finance with the sale of its ten per cent stake for INR16.52bn to Piramal.
TPG had sealed a partial exit three months earlier by selling almost half its stake for $303m through block trades on India’s National Stock Exchange.
