GROWTH CAPITAL TO BOOST INDIAN MIDDLE MARKET COMPANIES
Indian Mid Market Private companies are expected to be on a high growth trajectory. Small and mid-sized businesses flourish in several parts of the country addressing consumer needs and demands. The segment, comprising private companies with revenues ranging between $10 million and $2 billion, has been a major force behind much of the economic growth and employment generation in the country over the past decade. Due to their high growth trajectories, these companies are likely to be tomorrow’s market leaders.
Several of these companies aspire to be larger and more efficient in their operations. However, their growth is restricted by their accessibility mainly to financial capital.

Indian Mid-market growth scenario
India is a high-growth economy, with GDP of around 7 percent, and it is also an extremely diverse economy. The burgeoning middle class of 150-200 million people benefitting from massive technological advances and the opening up of the economy, and that middle class is going to grow over time. There is huge demand for goods and services from this population, which has the same number of consumers as the largest four or five European economies put together.
There are now a number of high quality businesses that started as small and family-run businesses, but today after being around for 15-20 years, are significant mid-market businesses. In that time they have come to generate say $100-200 million in revenue at compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of around 15 percent and with increasingly dominant market positions.
These businesses need capital to keep growing. There are a lot of companies that need flexible capital for three or four years to take them to the next level of operations. They find debt capital attractive in that it is non-dilutive and it gives them additional capital for expansion and acquisitions. Also there are greater interest towards attracting equity capital, where debt capital is not fit for the capital structure.
