NephroPlus, India’s largest dialysis care provider promoted by Vikram Vuppala and Kamal Shah announced an investment of USD 45 million from Investcorp Private Equity (“Investcorp”). The transaction also gave an exit to Sealink Capital Partners and the lead angel investor.
NephroPlus has a pan India network of over 200 centres across 115 cities. The company was founded in 2010 with a vision to redefine dialysis care in India and provide high-quality dialysis care at affordable prices by leveraging standardized protocols, continuous training and focused innovation. While NephroPlus continues to invest and further consolidate its leadership position in the Indian market, the company plans to expand its network in select Asian markets.
Avendus Capital was the exclusive financial advisor to NephroPlus.
Vikram Vuppala, Founder and CEO of NephroPlus, said, " We are excited that NephroPlus team can now focus on further cementing our dominant position in the Indian dialysis market as well as making an impact on dialysis patients in the Asia and Middle East markets in the next few years.”
Chintan Kothari, Executive Director and Head of Healthcare Investment Banking at Avendus Capital, said, “Taking healthcare beyond the core metro markets is an imperative, yet significantly challenging mission in India. We are proud of being a part of this journey with NephroPlus who are delivering world class dialysis care at affordable prices and revolutionizing lives of many patients for whom dialysis care earlier either was not accessible or was beyond their means.”
