Australianfinancial group Macquarie launched a drive to raise a 500-billion-won fund totake over another Korean waste treatment firm. Since 2013, Macquarie hasacquired a string of waste treatment companies, based on its judgment that thewaste treatment industry has a great potential for future growth.
Accordingto industry sources on May 15, Macquarie Capital Korea and Davi Hana Infra Fundformed a consortium to create a fund dedicated for acquisition of wastetreatment companies. IBK Bank will take part in as a major investor.
