The K Law team advised and assisted the Spain-based investment firm GAWA Capital in the transaction, led by partner Sankar Swamy and associate partner Aparnaa Bhalotia.

Indus Law advised the MSME-focussed NBFC Kinara Capital owner Visage Holdings and Finance and was led by founding partner Suneeth Katarki, senior associate Mayukh Datta and associate Nikita Rajwade.

It was also reported that BSE-listed NBFC major Shriram City Union Finance will exit its position in the six-year-old company. The equity financing round will see Kinara receive about Rs 70 crore as primary funding, with the remaining going to Shriram City Union Finance, which it had initially invested in the NBFC in 2015.
