Notes to editors

KSK Emerging India Energy Fund Limited is a Guernsey registered closed ended investment company established to make investments in companies engaged in the Indian power and energy sector. The Company will target investment in businesses that operate across the Indian power and energy sector value chain including those involved in the development of the sector's infrastructure. Although the Company's investments will primarily be focused on such businesses in India, the Company may, if deemed appropriate, invest in companies that are based outside India but have the potential to benefit from the Indian power and energy sector. The Company's objective is to target investment opportunities that have a projected realised IRR in excess of 20 per cent.
