Investments

Over the years, SARA GROUP has developed an ability to identify lucrative investment opportunities across sectors. The group has now earmarked its investment portfolio of companies and assets for great growth in the coming years.

One of the first and larger investments made by the group was into Gopalpur ports Limited (GPL), the special purpose vehicle (SPV) setup to bid for the development of the Gopalpur port in Orissa. SARA GROUP, through Sara International Pvt Ltd. (SIPL), owned 50 % in GPL and the SPV was awarded the tender to build, own, operate, share and transfer back the Gopalpur port by the Government of Orissa. SIPL exited this investment by liquidating its stake to Shapoorji Pallonji Group in 2017. For more information, please visit www.gopalpurports.com.

In 2006, SARA GROUP acquired Magnum Resources Pvt. Limited (MRPL), one of India's largest dealerships for textiles machines. MRPL represents brands such as Pegasus, Brother, Kansai, Nisho, Uzu etc. For more information, please visit www.magnumresources.co.in.

In 2013, SARA GROUP setup Dominor Investments L.L.P, which is the group's investment vehicle for early stage angel and venture capital funding. Dominor has already invested in companies in sectors such as food, e-commerce, healthcare and wellness, media etc.

Growth Areas

Real Estate Investment Fund

The last few years, SARA has been researching an entry in to real estate investment with a financial perspective. The goal has been to build a portfolio of high rent yielding properties under a SARA owned company or fund.

Work is currently on in structuring this business and we find the current real estate environment extremely lucrative to make an entry. Teams of dedicated professionals with sectoral expertise are being build with the group that will lead our efforts in this sector.

Healthcare

Healthcare remains a pain area for our country. With dismal hospital bed numbers as compared to our population and lack of access to medical infrastructure, especially in smaller towns, the group believes that the healthcare industry is set to grow exponentially over the next decade.

With this belief, the group is identifying opportunities to set up fully equipped multi specialty mid size hospitals across second and third tier cities in India. The focus would be on providing clean, expert medical care at affordable prices to a very large proportion of our population.
