Myanmar’s Largest PE Firm Hopes to Win Local Hearts and Minds with Third Fund

Delta Capital is looking to fundraise at least $100M for its third fund. The idea of an outside investment was elusive as the previous isolation forced Myanmar businesses to grow organically. However, perspectives are changing. Deal count has risen from just 3 in 2016 to 21 in 2020. “It’s still predominantly a VC market with people doing smaller deals, which is a much busier area,” Powell said. “There are only a couple of shops that do around the $5-10M area and once you get to $10-30M there’s only us or the regional funds”.
