The world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, Norway’s Government Pension Fund Global which manages $1 trillion of the country’s assets and the Kuwait Investment Authority with assets exceeding $590 billion are amongst top global investors who have subscribed to the qualified institutional placement of  PVR, the nation’s largest multiplex operator.

“The company’s total stake dilution via the QIP is 5.65 percent and the company has raised Rs 500 crore. The proceeds will be used for paring debt and increasing the screen count,” said a source familiar with the company’s plans.

“Kuwait Investment Authority has picked up the highest stake followed by Aditya Birla Sun Life Trustee Private Ltd, ICICI Prudential & Sundaram Mutual Fund. Morgan Stanley India Investment Fund, Government Pension Fund Global and Fidelity Funds – India Focus Fund are the other key investors. USA’S third-largest public pension plan New York State Common Retirement Fund, City of New York Group Trust and City of Los Angeles Fire and Police Pension Plan also participated in the process through their contribution was relatively much smaller,” said another source.

“The varied participation of global funds reflects their belief in the PVR growth story. Funds from Norway and the US are now closely looking at the consumer theme in India and may participate more in future,” added a third source.

The fundraising exercise was launched on October 22 and the allotment of investors was completed earlier this week on October 29. The issue price was fixed at Rs 1,719.05 a share. Investment banks Kotak Mahindra Capital and CLSA along with law firm Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas were advisors to PVR for the QIP.

In August 2019, PVR became the first cinema exhibitor to reach 800 screens at 170 properties in 69 cities.  In Q2FY20, PVR saw a 16 percent growth in advertising revenue which increased to Rs 94 crore, up from Rs 81 crore in Q2 in 2018 despite the economic slowdown. Along with the growth in advertising revenue, the box office revenue for the quarter was up by 32 percent led by a 25 percent growth in admits. Plus, F&B (food and beverage) revenues were up by 38 percent.
