Advent International buys minority stake in Manjushree Technopack

Global private equity investor Advent International has made an investment to purchase minority stake owned by Kedaara Capital in Indian rigid plastic packaging firm Manjushree Technopack.

Global private equity investor Advent International has made an investment to purchase the minority stake owned by Kedaara Capital in Indian rigid plastic packaging firm Manjushree Technopack.

The deal includes the acquisition of all the shares owned by Kedaara Capital and a portion of the Kedia family’s stake in Manjushree Technopack. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With this deal, Advent has invested approximately $1bn in seven companies in India.

Advent International India head and managing director Shweta Jalan said: “Manjushree Technopack is the market leader in an industry with strong growth tailwinds.

“The rigid plastic packaging market is expected to expand 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.”

According to Advent International director Pankaj Patwari, the company aims to accelerate Manjushree’s growth by investing in new business development, expanding into adjacent geographies, segments and business lines, as well as acquiring other packaging companies.
