The international investment firm KKR reportedly inked a Share Purchase Agreement with China based NVC Lighting to set up a strategic partnership with NVC Lighting and take over a major interest in the latter’s China business for an overall equity value of nearly USD 794 Mn.

Wang Donglei, Chairman of the Board, NVC Lighting was reportedly quoted stating that the company is pleased to produce an outstanding outcome for the shareholders, who will be looking after the marginal ownership in NVC China along with the complete ownership of NVC Lighting’s global business. The company believes that the KKR will wholly contribute resources and operational expertise to support the development of the business for a longer term.

Meanwhile, Paul Yang, the Head of KKR Greater China, cited that the company looks forward to working with NVC China’s commendable management team to support its long-term growth plan, contributing to the global development of the country’s lighting industry and strengthening KKR’s commitment to the market.
