CVC bags $399m with bigger Matahari block
Asia Color Company, controlled by CVC Capital Partners, raised Rph4.7tr ($399m) on Tuesday by selling a chunk of its shares in Matahari Department Store. A strong response from investors allowed the private equity firm to offload a bigger stake than first planned.
The company had originally looked to sell 250m shares, with sole bookrunner JP Morgan pitching them at Rph13,900-Rph14,325.
