In 1992, they established Volcan Investments in Nassau, Bahamas, as the main holding company for their mines. D.P. Agarwal had a small aluminum pipe business in Patna. His son Anil Agarwal had come to Mumbai to expand his business.

In the 1990s, when the Indian government started selling off sick (distressed) companies, Sterlite started bidding for them. They managed to make a successful bid for BALCO and Hindustan Zinc Limited, both bankrupt companies that had been closed for 4 years.

In the meantime, D. P. Agarwal set up Twinstar Holdings Limited in Mauritius in January 1993, which was majority-owned by Volcan Investments. On 26 May 2002, the Enforcement Directorate filed a complaint with Sterlite relating to the six years between 1993 and 1999.

following approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). On 29 April 1999, many of these investment companies were liquidated and all the shares of Sterlite reverted to the ownership of Twinstar.
