Carlyle-backed Pathology Firm Metropolis plans Fund Raise via IPO

In 2015, the Shah family had bought back the entire 27% stake held by private equity major Warburg Pincus in Metropolis Healthcare for an undisclosed amount.

Pathology chain operator Metropolis Healthcare Ltd is eyeing to raise around Rs 1,500 crore ($230 million) through an initial share sale.

Ameera Shah, managing director and CEO of Metropolis Healthcare said the IPO will likely include a partial stake sale by the Shah family, besides fresh equity.

The proceeds from the stake sale by the founders will be used to repay the loan taken to buy out a private equity investor about three years ago, the report said, adding part of the fund raised through the IPO will also be used for acquisitions.
