Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. Key Developments

Cerberus Reportedly Bids For HSH Nordbank

Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. has reportedly joined the bidding for HSH Nordbank AG., looking to potentially acquire the lender's 22 billion nonperforming loan portfolio. Cerberus Capital Management LP, one of the world's largest financial investors with around $30 billion in assets under management, is the second private equity bidder for HSH Nordbank AG, Handelsblatt reported May 15, 207, citing financial sources. Previously, Apollo Global Management LLC was named as one of the companies participating in the sale process, which was launched by the states of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein earlier this year, in accordance with EU state aid proceedings. After concluding a preliminary round of talks with interested parties at the end of March, the two states, which hold an 85% direct stake in HSH Nordbank, began talks with a shortlisted group of bidders. All of them are offered access to HSH Nordbank's books. Private equity investors are said to be primarily interested in HSH Nordbank's bad bank unit, which contains all remaining nonperforming loans of the German lender. The total value of the portfolio is estimated at around 22 billion, and Cerberus is keen on buying precisely that part of the business, according to Handelsblatt's sources.

Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A. (BIT:ISP) is in talks to sell €2.5 billion in bad loans to Christofferson, Robb & Company, LLC and Bayview Asset Management, LLC, three sources close to the matter said. The sources said Intesa had not yet entered into an exclusivity agreement with Christofferson, which may give other bidders a chance to re-enter the game. Two consortia comprising Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) with Credito Fondiario S.p.A. on one side and Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. with Cerved Information Solutions S.p.A. on the other were also in the running for the sale, dubbed "Beyond the clouds". A second source said binding bids for this €1.35 billion portfolio, dubbed "Project Rep", were due by May 19. The first source said around a dozen international investors had shown an interest as they bet on a recovery in the Italian property market. Bidders are expected to include Fortress Investment Group LLC, Apollo, Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., PIMCO with GWM Capital Advisors LLP, Starwood Capital Group with TPG Capital, L.P. All the interested parties declined to comment.
