EM Capital will provide turnaround management services for underperforming or crisis situations on behalf of foreign clients and investors.
EM Capital India will also serve non-performing loan and distressed investors and hedge funds in areas of origination, due diligence and asset management.
EM Capital India is led by Dhruba Gupta, the former Deputy Treasurer of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a unit of the World Bank based in Washington, D.C. Gupta recently played a key role in the restructuring of IFCI, the Indian state-owned economic development bank. Mr. Gupta is a Chartered Accountant and holds a Masters Degree from the London School of Economics. He is supported by a select team of Indian investment and finance professionals including a Chartered Financial Analyst(CFA)and experienced bankers, senior corporate managers, attorneys and chartered accounts based in New Delhi. The New Delhi office provides EM Capital's international clients with vital in-country, local business practice expertise and the capacity to mobilize and initiate services within 24-hours.
The India office will also serve as a platform for the EM Capital India Opportunity Fund that will launch in March, 2005. The $100 million India-related fund will target promising Indian mid-cap firms that can benefit from a combination of additional capital and EM Capital's financial and operations improvement expertise.
