Bain Capital has sold its investment in Axis Bank for 1,071 rupees ($12.87) per share and has raised $429m.

According to Reuters, Bain sold 33.4 million shares in the block sale.

The final price represented a 0.5% discount to the closing price of the company and was at the lower end of the price range offered to potential investors, which was 1,071 to 1,076.05 rupees.

Through the transaction, Bain Capital has given up its ownership position in the Indian private lender. It originally invested in the company in 2017.
