Financing Your India Business Through Equity Funding Options



On October 29, Business Advisory Services Senior Associate Vikas Saluja discussed the various private equity investment options for Indian businesses and their analysis from a regulatory and taxation perspective.

Investment into companies can typically be in the form of equity or debt funding - the first involves selling a portion of equity/ shares in the company while the latter involves borrowing a sum of money.

However, equity financing is often preferred as it carries no repayment obligation and provides extra working capital which can be used to expand a business. Moreover, equity funding places no additional financial burden on the company.

Equity financing is also an important business decision as it requires giving out a percentage of the company to the investor along with sharing of profits and consultation on decisions affecting the direction of the Indian business.

Various private equity options are available to a company and it is crucial to understand the impact of each option on shareholding and control, return on investment, repatriation options, tax benefits, and security of funds.

  • An Introduction to various private equity (PE) financing options
  • Types of equity shares – ordinary, preference, bonus, etc
