Charterhouse Reportedly In Lead To Acquire Skillsoft

Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP is in lead to acquire Skillsoft Limited from Advent International Corporation, Bain Capital, LLC and Berkshire Partners LLC; for more than $2 billion, people familiar with the matter said. The deal, which is expected to be announced in the coming days, will likely value Skillsoft at around $2.3 billion, including debt, one of the people said. Charterhouse emerged as the lead contender for Skillsoft following an auction that also drew a binding bid from Providence Equity Partners LLC, the people said, asking not to be identified because the negotiations are private. Charterhouse, Providence Equity, Berkshire Partners, Advent and Bain declined to comment and representatives for Skillsoft did not immediately respond to requests for comment to Reuters.
