Carlyle Group explores $1 billion IPO for Hexaware Technologies in India

Carlyle Group Inc. is considering options for Indian information technology firm Hexaware Technologies Ltd., including an initial public offering that could raise $1 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

The US investment firm is speaking with potential arrangers to help prepare for an IPO in Mumbai this year or next, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. A share sale might value Hexaware at $4 billion or more, they said.

At about $1 billion, it would be the biggest IPO in the country since Life Insurance Corp. of India’s in 2022, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That company’s shares slumped initially but have mostly recovered.

While an IPO is the preferred option for Hexaware, alternatives include a stake sale to an investment firm or industry peer, the people said.

Considerations are preliminary and no final decisions have been made, the people said. Details on aspects such as size and value may change, they said.

Hexaware provides IT and business process outsourcing services, according to its website. It also offers cloud, data and artificial intelligence services. Carlyle bought Hexaware in 2021 from Baring Private Equity Asia Ltd., which is now part of Sweden’s EQT AB. Bloomberg
