Warburg Pincus, a private equity company, has recently announced that its affiliate company, Windy Lakeside Investment Limited, will make an investment of ?800 crore ($109.2 million).

In addition, the board has given approval to the issue of notice convening an EGM (extraordinary general meeting) of the company’s shareholders, which is expected to be held on 6th April via video conferencing.

Apart from the recent deal, APSEZ has recently announced the acquisition of a 31.5% stake held by Windy Lakeside Investment in Gangavaram Port at ?1,954 crore ($266.8 million), which is subject to several regulatory approvals.

The company has shown appreciation towards the robust potential of the port in complementing the bulk cargo terminals with the new cargo categories, which the company intends to develop. The port will also provide it greater access to the adjacent untapped hinterland, thereby presenting opportunities to serve more port customers and drive its overall hinterland logistic footprint, he added.
