Private Equity International is delighted to announce the Asia-Pacific winners of the Operational Excellence Awards 2016, recognising those firms that have had the most transformative effect on portfolio companies during their period of ownership.
Here are the Asia-Pacific winners in full:
Small cap: DRC Capital – PayDesign
A 'shrink-to-grow' policy paid dividends for DRC Capital when it acquired Tokyo-based electronic payment services company PayDesign.
Lower mid-market: Navis Capital Partners – Golden Foods Siam
Navis Capital Partners generated a 3.6x return when it sold one of Thailand’s largest chicken processors earlier this year.
Upper mid-market: NewQuest Capital Partners – China Hydroelectric Corporation
Adding operational value can be an acrimonious process, as NewQuest Capital Partners discovered.
Large cap: Actis – Plateno
Chinese hotel operator Plateno Hotel Group was transformed under Actis’s ownership.
