BC Partners Key Developments

Unilabs Leading The Race To Buy Synlab

Unilabs SA has the potential to become a frontrunner to buy synlab Holding GmbH from BC Partners. Unilabs may pay €1.7 billion for synlab. Unilabs has entered the auction and met Synlab's management, the sources said, adding that it is the only suitor that can take advantage of considerable cost synergies from combining Synlab with its Unilabs subsidiary. Unilabs, owned by private-equity investors Apax Partners LLP and Nordic Capital, has entered the auction and has met Synlab's management, the sources said. Private equity groups such as The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) and Advent International Corporation have already dropped out of the race, while other prospective buyers are considering dropping out as well, the sources said. Cinven Limited and EQT Partners AB remain in the auction, which the seller hopes to conclude before the summer break at a valuation of €1.7 to €1.9 billion, including debt, or 11.5 to 13 times Synlab's annual core earnings, the sources added. BC Partners, Apax Partners, Nordic Capital, Blackstone, Advent, Cinven, EQT and Rothschild all declined to comment.
