|Description||An equity investment of up to $40 million in Everbridge Partners Fund I, L.P. (_Everbridge I_, _Fund I_), a targeted $750 million private equity fund focused on investing in growth stage opportunities in mid-market companies operating in the healthcare, business services, and consumer sectors primarily in People's Republic of China (PRC), India and Southeast Asia.|
|Objectives and Scope||The proposed investment in Everbridge I will provide growth capital to about ten middle-market companies operating primarily in the health care, business services, and consumer sectors, in India, the People's Republic of China (PRC), and Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand). These companies often lack access to affordable capital because equity financing is generally limited and traditional bank financing is difficult to source without hard assets that can be pledged as collateral. Furthermore, many companies in emerging Asia need improved professional management to scale up their operations. The proposed investment by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in Everbridge I would help deepen capital markets and support Asia's growing private sector.|
|Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The proposed investment in Everbridge I aligns strongly with two operational priorities outlined in ADB's Strategy 2030. These include (i) addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities by generating quality jobs, improving education, and achieving better health for all; and (ii) fostering regional cooperation and integration by enhancing connectivity and strengthening finance sector cooperation. ADB's Strategy 2030 also aims to expand private sector operations to support its operational priorities by (i) expanding regional reach through private equity funds, (ii) strengthening the finance sector and capital markets, and (iii) widening geographic coverage. Given its track record with Capital Group Private Markets, Everbridge is uniquely positioned to deliver on ADB's Strategy 2030 themes through investments such as Go-Jek, which promotes regional cooperation and integration, and Innovent Biologics and Mankind Pharma, which deliver high-quality health care products and services.|
