India's Livemint also reported on the deal May 30, adding that Ambit Capital held a 47.5% stake in the business.
The new owners are renaming the investment firm to J.C. Flowers Asset Reconstruction Co. upon completion of the deal, according to a release. The business will be managed by Eight Capital's Mumbai team, and it will purchase non-performing loans from Indian Banks in target companies that have the potential to be turned around through balance sheet restructuring and new capital.
