DOW JONES NEWSWIRES LONDON (Dow Jones)--Second bids for U.K.-based Wagamama, the Japanese-style noodle bar chain owned by Lion Capital, are due by the end of the week, people familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The auction is being run by Rothschild and is expected to garner bids of up to GBP260 million, according to press reports. India Hospitality Corp. (IHC.LN), Investcorp (INVORP.BH) and Morgan Stanley's (MS) private equity arm are among the potential buyers, people said. Wagamama, which uses a simple canteen-style format for its restaurants, was founded in 1992 in London by restaurateur Alan Yau, who also owns restaurants Hakkasan and Yauatcha. Wagamama now operates 66 restaurants in the U.K. and 39 overseas. Lion Capital bought Wagamama for GBP103 million in June 2005 from Graphite Capital, which retains a 12% stake. http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20101116-711061.html

Tx Limousine why are they daring to participate in a bidding war (when they can only do a placing to generate funds), and up against Morgan-Stanley private wing (who have the dosh no doubt) How can they hope to win? Their food industry history perhaps.

good find Limousine: ihc is blue (pre-market) today: One person close to the Mumbai-based group said: "The opportunity to expand Wagamama's business in Asia, and in particular India, is massive for IHC. "IHC is also a better fit to acquire a food chain as it has always been in the hospitality business." Wagamama already owns three restaurants in the US and has plans to triple that number in the next three years.

INDIAN FIRM TARGETS WAGAMAMA MUMBAI: India Hospitality Corporation, the leisure firm, has signalled its intention to bid for the fast-growing Wagamama noodles chain, in a sign of the rising international strength of brand owners based in India. IHC, which faces competition for the acquisition, said it is prepared to pay at least $400m (€283m; £246m) for the firm, the Financial Times reports. Analysts believe that Wagamama - an award-winning chain of pan-Asian noodle restaurants first launched in London - would be a good fit with the country's ongoing development of smart shopping malls. It also reflects the rapid urbanisation of large swathes of the Indian population, triggered by the migration of thousands of traditional rural-dwellers to big cities such as New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai. The purchase of Wagamama, which is already established, mostly in the form of franchises, in 16 international markets including Turkey, Egypt and Kuwait, could be an important step for IHC. Its ceo, Ravi Deol, an Indian entrepreneur who owns three hotels, an airline catering operation and a collection of restaurant brands, has made no secret of his expansion ambitions in the latter industry. One person close to the Mumbai-based group said: "The opportunity to expand Wagamama's business in Asia, and in particular India, is massive for IHC. "IHC is also a better fit to acquire a food chain as it has always been in the hospitality business." Wagamama already owns three restaurants in the US and has plans to triple that number in the next three years. Data sourced from Financial Times; additional content by Warc staff, 08 November 2010

Sat, Oct 30 08:26 PM London, Oct 30 (PTI) A leading Indian leisure group, India Hospitality Corporation, is bidding to takeover noodle bar chain Wagamama. The India hospitality Corporation (IHC), a company with restaurant hotel and catering interests across India, is understood to be one of three bidders still in the hunt to buy Wagamama, alongside Morgan Stanley''s private equity unit and Investcorp, the Middle-eastern buyout group. Although Morgan Stanley is being tipped as the front runner in the auction which is being handled by Rothschild, analysts pointed out that recent deals in the restaurant sector had largely been completed by buyers from outside the traditional private equity world. IHC, which raised $103 million (64 million) when it floated on AIM, a sub-market of the London Stock Exchange in 2006, owns SkyGourmet Catering, an airline caterer with 1,700 employees operating from five locations in India. Since 2007, it has owned Gordon House Hotels and Mars Restaurants, a multi brand operator with concepts including China Joe, All Stir Fry, Birdy''s Bakery and Patisserie and Tendulkar''s.

The Group reported a total loss of US$8.6 million during the first half of the fiscal year, compared with a loss of US$5.6 million during the same period last year. The expenses include a number of non-recurring items relating to the issuance of shares to the new management and IHC assuming full control of its operating subsidiaries wonder how much of the loss relates to non recurring items

results (21 Dec) were poor but.. Chairman Jason Ader said: "While the hospitality industry in general and the aviation sector in specific have experienced a turbulent last 18 months, the directors remain optimistic given the muted signs of a rebound that are being seen in India. "Based on data released by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, air passenger numbers in India have shown an increase of approximately 33% and 30% in the months of October 2009 and November 2009 when compared with the same periods in 2008."
