Private equity invests $300m in Tower Vision

Quadrangle Capital Partners and a consortium of investors have acquired stakes in Tower Vision India. The equity capital and some additional debt financing will offer the wireless towers manager $300 million to boost its portfolio of transmission sites.

The New York-based private equity fund, which has $3 billion in assets under management, will assume a “significant minority” share of Tower Vision.

The fund’s investments in the region will concentrate on telecommunications, media and technology in India, China and Australia.

The operator of mobile-phone towers, GTL Infrastructure, has already proposed to take over transmission sites from Maxis Communications’ Aircel subsidiary for $1.8 billion, to help double its network in India.

Quadrangle Capital, co-founded by Steven Rattner, is looking to inject between $100 million and $250 million in each of its companies.
