“We welcome IIFL Asset Management as our newest shareholder and it is great to see our two existing investors (InvestCorp and BVP) participating in this Series E round as well.

We look forward to not only driving organic and inorganic growth in India and overseas with this capital, but also investing in building a unique digital health solution targeted at dialysis patients,” said NephroPlus founder and CEO, Vikram Vuppala.

“We are excited to partner with the dialysis market leader NephroPlus. As an integrated dialysis chain with a strong track-record of growth and returns, NephroPlus will continue expanding into new geographies in India and overseas. There are not too many unique scaled-up market leading businesses in healthcare like NephroPlus, especially with such a capable management team. We look forward to joining this growth journey with NephroPlus,” said Anshuman Goenka, head private equity, IIFL Asset Management.
