MUMBAI: It continues to be the darling of investors globally. On 6 August 2014, the Indian MSO Hathway Cable & Datacom  got board approval to raise Rs 300.80 crore through a preferential allotment to two foreign institutional investors – the SmallCapWorld Fund (SWF) and American Funds Insurance Series. While it is proposing to allot  70,50,000 shares to SmallCapWorld Fund, American Funds Insurance is expected to mop up 23,50,000 equity shares.

The price that has been fixed is Rs 320 per share and the preferential issue is subject to shareholder and other necessary approvals and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Last year, Hathway had raised funds from Steadview Capital Mauritius, LTR Focus Fund, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (collectively Rs 100 crore), P6 Asia Holding Investment IV (Mauritius) (Rs 109.90 crore) at a share price of Rs 284 and the promoter Rajan Raheja group (around Rs 40 crore).

Prior to that, in March 2012, Providence Equity Advisors and Macquarie Bank had bought out  News Corp’s 17.3 per cent stake in the MSO at collective a cost of Rs 358.39 crore through secondary market transactions.

Hathway had in June announced the induction of four new independent directors on its board including private equity firm founder and CEO  Bramal Vasudevan, early stage VC firm Kae Capital head Sasha Mirchandani, law firm Trilegal’s partner Sridhar Gorthi and back office administrative services Lexvia Inc founder Devendra Shrotri. The four have been appointed for a five year term.

The MSO has been amongst the more proactive players in the cable TV distribution, broadband and ISP spaces and is seen as a bellwether for the sector. It currently boasts of a cable TV subscriber base of 11.5 million with more than 8 million of them being digital. Its broadband reach is more more than 1.8 million Indian homes and it has more than 400,000 broadband subscribers.

In the year ended 31 March 2014, Hathway notched up revenue of Rs 988.14 crore with a net loss of Rs 125.5 crore on a standalone basis.
