Mitsubishi Corporation to invest in TVS Supply Chain Solutions for a minority stake

Mitsubishi to acquire the stake from Tata Opportunities Fund which will make a partial exit

Chennai, November 10th, 2020: TVS Supply Chain Solutions Limited (TVS SCS), India’s leading integrated Supply Chain Management Services company and part of the $8.5 bn TVS group, today announced that Mitsubishi Corporation (MC), Japan, has invested in TVS SCS for a minority stake. MC’s investment is through a secondary market transaction which will allow an existing investor – Tata Opportunities Fund – to secure a partial exit. The Tata Opportunities Fund (TOF) initially came on board in 2015 as a minority partner and has invested across multiple rounds in TVS SCS to fund acquisitions and to support TVS SCS’ future growth. TOF, however, will continue to hold a residual stake and remains a key strategic investment partner for TVS SCS.
