Ramesh Chauhan, the owner of Bisleri international, has stated if the company sells a stake, it would be sold to an Indian who would help to promote and develop the brand.

Bisleri has been a legacy company and has received proposals from various companies, including Reliance Retail, which is aggressively acing its game across various categories like food, beverages, and several other personal care brands with the help of purchasing stakes from the respective companies.

Reliance’s attempt to purchase stakes in Bisleri International did not materialize, although the company has shown high interest in acquiring a part of it.

Chauhan had shown keen interest in collaborating with the multinational companies Nestle and Danone in 2002-03. Both the multinationals have shown keen interest in stepping up the game. However, their plans have not progressed further.

The only thing that can persuade Chauhan to agree to the proposals made by the multinational companies is succession planning which would allow him to consider any stake dilution proposals with greater interest.

Making stake acquisitions is not a new phenomenon for the Tata Group. The acquisitions can help both the companies to up-sell, cross-sell and leverage the customers’ database. Tata is currently emphasizing on spreading its wings in the retail sector, and acquiring a stake in Bisleri International will prove to be beneficial for both companies.
