Indiabulls on the rampage

Business Today has a fascinating profile of PE-backed stock broking and financial services firm Indiabulls

(A) striking feature of Indiabulls is its ability to raise money. In 2000, it had managed to raise venture capital from Infinity Ventures, Harish Fabiani of Transatlantic, and LN Mittal Internet Ventures, all of whom put in a total of Rs 43 crore. The next rounds happened in 2004 and 2005, when Farallon and Amaranth brought in a total of Rs 310 crore. Now Indiabulls is clearly among the top 100 capitalised companies, with Rs 700 crore in equity capital.
