India's middle class population is projected to grow from 50 million to 583 million in the next two decades, making the country the fifthlargest consumer market in the world. The burgeoning disposable incomes and changing consumer mindsets are expected to boost spending in the future. At the same time, emerging technology, innovation and globalization are leading to growing awareness about spending avenues. The consumer products and services sector is set for an exciting period of growth. Several promising trends are unfolding in this space as consumers seek products that bring incremental convenience. Immense opportunities ride on these trends. o3 Capital offers unrivalled knowledge in sectors like food and beverages, personal care, retail, apparel / textile and consumer and

business services. This is driven by our considerable experience in working with numerous consumer businesses, continuous sector tracking and research, and access to an extensive network of private equity funds and investment banks.

Given the current infrastructure spend at 5% of the GDP; India will need to double its annual allocation on this sector just to sustain the present rate of growth. An investment of close to US$ 500 billion is needed in the industry over the next five years to fill this gap. About 30% of this will be accounted for by private sector investments. Changes in economic policy have created an environment that is conducive to private sector involvement. The credible deal flow over the past few years and the spate of successful IPOs of infrastructure companies have added to the lure of the sector. A direct outcome of this has been the launch of several India-infrastructure focused funds. The infrastructure practice at o3 Capital was set up to act as a conduit between the seekers and providers of infrastructure capital. Since inception, our team has successfully closed several transactions in the shipping and natural resources space. o3 Capital has also developed enduring relationships in areas such as turnkey services in telecom and power, logistics, shipbuilding and infrastructure services among several others.

Life Sciences
The Indian Life Sciences sector is currently estimated at US$ 34 billion and is expected to more than double to US$ 78 billion over the next few years. India has a strong presence in generic drugs manufacturing, and is one of the largest exporters of generic drugs in the world. Outside the USA, India has the largest number of USA FDA approved manufacturing plants, reinforcing the perception that India is a quality producer of pharmaceutical products. Major multinational pharmaceutical companies have set up operations in India, offering their products to the burgeoning middle class. Indian companies, in turn, are going global and setting up operations in the USA, Europe, Africa and Japan. With the growth in disposable incomes and changing lifestyles, there is a significant unmet demand for quality Life Sciences from the middle class in India. Large corporations have set up or are setting a large number of specialty hospitals to fill this void. o3 Capital has wide experience in executing cross-border mergers and acquisitions and private equity syndication transactions in various segments, including the pharmaceutical and Life Sciences services. We offer clients in-depth domain knowledge and unparalleled execution skills.

With changing consumer spending patterns and an increase in advertising expenditure, the Indian Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry is expected to grow from INR 513 billion in 2007 to INR 1,003 billion by 2011 -- a CAGR of 18.5%. The M&E industry in India is witnessing strong growth in both traditional and emerging media, which, coupled with encouraging trends in media

consumption, have led to growing investor interest. Backed by strong thought leadership and industry knowledge, o3 Capital offers unparalleled advice to media companies.

As the industry matures, we see an opportunity for diligent teams to provide financial services that would be required to take young organizations to the big league, as well as help the big players to consolidate and become more efficient. The drivers for the real estate industry are growing demand for homes, high growth in IT and other services, the burgeoning middle class, rapid urbanization and investments in infrastructure. We understand the real estate markets and the nuances of various formats in vogue.
