Recent Financial Activities

In April 2024, Aster DM Healthcare Ltd. approved a special dividend of ₹118 per share. This dividend distribution is attributed to the proceeds from the sale of the GCC business and the redemption of redeemable preference shares issued by its subsidiary Affinity Holdings Pvt Ltd.

Strategic Divestments and Business Separation

Aster DM Healthcare has been actively restructuring its business to unlock value. In November 2023, the company announced plans to sell the equity shares held by Affinity Holdings, in Aster DM Healthcare FZC to Alpha GCC Holdings Ltd.

This strategic move was part of the company’s broader strategy to separate its India and GCC businesses, allowing them to operate as standalone entities and unlocking long-term value.

Investment and Acquisition

As part of this business separation, a UAE-based sovereign-owned private equity consortium led by Fajr Capital proposed to acquire a 65% stake in Aster DM Healthcare’s GCC business. This agreement was formalised in a definitive agreement and received approval from Aster DM Healthcare’s shareholders in January 2024.
