CX Partners nears first close for $250m-targeting mezzanine fund

13 Mar 2013

india5_lrgIndian private equity firm CX Partners is reportedly eyeing a first close of between $100m and $150m for its new mezzanine fund within the next six weeks.

Intermediate Capital Fund, which is led by former JPMorgan Chase principal Shishir Jain, is targeting $250m in total according to the Economic Times.

It quoted co-founder and managing partner Ajay Relan as saying, “We have a substantial commitment from one anchor investor and are looking to get one more anchor investor on board.

“We see this [fund] as being complementary to our efforts. It will expand our franchise.”

India-focused CX Partners currently has about $515m under management in a single private equity fund, CX Partners I, which it raised in 2009.

In December 2012 the firm agreed to buy a 75 per cent stake in the Indian ATM arm of Australian’s Transaction Solutions International for $22m.

Both companies signed a binding letter of intent over the deal according to a filing with Australia’s stock exchange, which said it would be completed in two tranches.
