The New York-based KKR will acquire a 60 per cent stake in the waste management and environmental services provider for which it will pay around $530m.

Ramky Enviro Engineers is headquartered in Hyderabad and, according to KKR, has more than 60 locations in 20 Indian states and Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa. KKR said the buyout was one of the largest in India and "the first private equity buyout in the country's highly attractive environmental services sector".
