Cinven Limited 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.

Update On Privatization Of Telekom Slovenije

Cinven Limited, the sole bidder in privatization of Telekom Slovenije d.d. (LJSE:TLSG), said that it was disappointed with the decision of Slovenian Sovereign Holding, d.d. not to accept its additional terms, but added that it remained interested in acquiring the majority state in Telekom Slovenije. Cinven added that conditions are no longer in place to proceed with the acquisition of Telekom Slovenije. "On that basis, the conditions to proceed with the transaction now are not in place. Cinven remains interested in the privatisation of Telekom Slovenije and open to re-evaluate the situation in the coming weeks, once the outcome of Macedonia is clarified," Cinven said in a statement.

SSH Accepts Cinven's May 20 Offer, Offer Addendum No Accepted

The supervisory board of Slovenian Sovereign Holding, d.d. accepted Cinven Limited's offer of May 20, 2015 but not the subsequent offer addendum that Cinven sent on June 10, 2015. Finance Minister, Dušan Mramor said that the Slovenian Sovereign's decision was logical and expected and confirmation of the binding May 20, 2015 offer was the only thing that Slovenian Sovereign could debate.
