V-Guard Industries 01-Guard), India's leading FMEG company, today announced that its Board has approved the acquisition of a minority stake (18.77%) in Gegadyne Energy Labs Private Limited (GEL) for a cash consideration of Rs. 33.4 crores.

GEL is a Mumbai based alternate battery technology start-up developing innovative energy storage (battery) solutions, which could deliver better battery performance on key parameters like total cost of ownership (TCO), Life Cycle, Recharge time, Safety profile and Maintenance costs, compared to prevalent battery technologies.

V-Guard foresees potential in GEL's alternative battery technology for various primary applications like DUPS / Energy storage in addition to secondary applications in other products of its existing portfolio.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Mithun Chittilappilly, Managing Director, V-Guard Industries Limited, said, "The proposed acquisition marks V-Guard's foray into deep tech start-up space and is in-line with V-Guard's philosophy of delivering thoughtful products and experiences to its consumers. We believe this collaboration will help GEL to realize its potential faster while also enabling V-Guard to further strengthen and expand its product offerings."
