Fund to invest in high quality and scalable mid-sized healthcare businesses in South and Southeast Asia


SINGAPORE-9th June 2015- Quadria Capital, one of Asia’s largest healthcare private equity groups, has raised US$304 million for healthcare investments in the region at the close of its third investment vehicle, Quadria Capital Fund L.P.


The Singapore-and India based private equity firm is focused on making equity investments in high quality and scalable mid-sized healthcare companies in South and Southeast Asia. The Fund’s investment strategy targets four key healthcare subsectors: Healthcare Delivery, Lifesciences, Medical Technology, and Associated Healthcare Services.


The Fund has already completed two investments, in Medica Synergie which is the largest hospital network in eastern India, and SOHO Global Health, one of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution businesses in Indonesia. The SOHO deal, concluded in March, is the first private equity deal in Indonesia’s fast-growing pharmaceutical industry.


Quadria Capital’s Managing Partner Dr Amit Varma said: “We are very pleased that several premier institutions with deep healthcare experience have entrusted their capital with us. This underscores their confidence in our knowledge and skills in assessing the sector and in sourcing deals with outperformance potential.


“There is rising demand in Asia for quality healthcare products and services, driven by an ageing population, affluence and changing disease patterns. We see exciting opportunities for Quadria Capital as we position our Fund to serve the needs of the region for quality healthcare and our investors for exceptional returns.”


His colleague, Managing Partner Abrar Mir added: “We thank our investors who have been our partners since launch, and welcome our new investors. We remain focused and driven to achieve our mission of producing superior returns for our investors and to make positive developmental impact on local communities.”
