Value of PE/VC exits in India from 2015-2019

In 2019, the Indian private equity and venture capital sector saw 155 exits worth eleven billion U.S. dollars. This was a decline compared to a stellar performance in 2018, when the exit activity aggregated a whopping 27 billion dollars. Even then, the PE/VC exits have had a good run in the country in the last three years, clocking over ten billion dollars each year.

Walmart Flipkart exit deal

India saw its largest ever PE/VC exit with the 2018 Walmart-Flipkart deal valued at over 16 billion dollars. In fact, the acquisition was hailed as the world’s largest e-commerce buyout deal that year, skyrocketing Flipkart’s revenue to over 436 billion Indian rupees from 216 billion rupees in 2018.

A comeback for open market exits

2019 saw a dampening in secondary and strategic exit deals, which were seen as the primary drivers of India’s exit deals so far. Various factors linked to a global economic slowdown as well as India’s liquidity and credit expansion concerns were to blame for the drop in investor confidence that year. However, open market exits saw a rebound, raising almost five billion dollars in 2019, compared to a drop of 1.7 billion in 2018. Looking ahead, the overall private equity and venture capital industry is expected to receive major shockwaves due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its resulting impact.
