Mannoj Kumar Jain May Acquire Rajasthan Royals For $200Mn
by Irfan Khan
Kolkata based Mannoj Kumar Jain may acquire upto 90% stake in @Jaipur_IPL Pvt Ltd- the holding company Rajasthan Royals franchisee. for around $200Mn, valuing the IPL-I champions at $222Mn.
The $222Mn valuation seems to be at the lower side when compared to $370Mn paid by the Sahara Group for the Pune Franchise in 2010, however it could still mean a tidy profit for the original promoters, who bought the franchisee rights for a total of $67Mn.
The deal needs approval from BCCI for completion as there are pending legal and regulatory issues against the team owners.
Joining the likes of entrepreneurs to back and fuel startups, Infosys’ cofounders SD Shibulal, and Kris Gopalakrishnan are reuniting again to launch an incubator, Axilor Ventures that would invest up to $1 Mn in each early-stage startup they pick.
