While the preceding quarter, i.e., March 2013 shows a changing trend of PE Investment from deal making to successful exits by PE players, the second quarter was still promising with a remarkable increase of 2.3 times in the PE Investments compared to the immediate previous quarter. However with the current Indian investment climate, where there are several unforeseen challenges, the PE investors continue to go slow in deploying capital, and remain “cautiously optimistic” about investing in India. According to a survey conducted by Bain & Co. and IVCA, Private equity players expect a moderate rise in deal activity in India during 2013 with healthcare emerging as a hot cake. Last year, there was a mere 4% rise in the number of PE deals. As per their PE Report : “Expectations about deal activity in 2013 remain cautious but still positive on the whole. Our interviews suggest that deal activity will see moderate growth in 2013 throughout the industry. The steps taken towards improving India’s legislative framework have made investors a bit more upbeat, and general partners suggest that more deals will close in 2013.” The Economic Times recent July article has a different story to tell. It says that : “The PE industry, which has backed the biggest names in telecom, banking and technology, is now facing its most serious crisis of confidence — funds are beginning to struggle, if not completely buckle —3i ended its India focus and Investor Investee & Nature of Investment US $ million Ascendas Trust's Acquisition of 2 million sqft of office space in Hyderabad from Phoenix Group 110.00 Xander's Supertech's 125 acre township project in Gurgaon 52.00 Clearwater Capital’s &Ajay Piramal Group NBFC- PHL Finance financing VGN Developers’ acquisition of a land parcel for a gated community project in Chennai. 50.20 View slide

Actis reportedly cut its fund size to a billion dollars from over $3 billion previously and Starwood Capital shuttered its realty-focused unit too. At least a dozen funds are estimated to have closed in the past two years. People and funds which entered India because it was fashionable have now realised their folly." Besides all the above concerns and apprehensions PE Industry in India, still remains an attractive destination for global investors. For a PE investor, the main challenges with India have been the uncertain Regulatory Environment and Lusterless Exit Performance.With the Indian Government recognizing the PE industry’s importance, to India, few positive steps have been taken to overcome the first concern. However, Exits remain a greater issue for the Indian PE Industry which hindered fund-raising plans of a number of India-focused funds. India’s growth story remains the thesis on investment attractiveness. But for the story to be realized, clarity is required with respect to the regulatory framework with the role of the Government to include favorable policy development aimed at welcoming investments into the country. Therefore, the role of PE and Government led initiatives need to go hand in hand. We expect this phase to continue over the reckonable future as the industry consolidates. However, from a long-term perspective, we remain vigorous on India PE and expect the industry to come out much stronger from the current situation.
