Multi-stage investor SAIF Partners has increased its holding in fine dining chain operator Speciality Restaurants, owned by Anjan Chatterjee whose brands include Mainland China and Oh! Calcutta, stated a report in VCCircle.

The PE firm had originally invested in the company in 2007. It stayed put as Speciality Restaurants and went public in mid-2012 but has been raising its holding for the last one year.

SAIF Partners Fund IV invested Rs 14.4 crore ($2.36 million) to buy 2.27 per cent stake through open market on 25th September. Exchange filings show Speciality Restaurants' promoter Anjan Chatterjee sold 2.3 per cent stake the same day.

SAIF acquired 1,067,561 equity shares at a price of Rs 135 per share aggregating Rs 14.4 crore, taking its holding in Speciality Restaurants to 18.89 per cent.

The PE firm has previously bought shares worth around Rs 4.4 crore in February this year through open market transactions. Late last year too it had bought approximately 3.2 per cent from Glix Securities, another pre-IPO investor for Rs 18.74 crore.

Speciality Restaurants operates brands like Mainland China, Oh! Calcutta, Machaan, Sigree Global Grill, Flame & Grill, Haka, KIBBEH, Kix, Shack and a confectionery brand, Sweet Bengal.
