Kelso Reportedly In Talks To Buy US LBM
Jul 1 15
Kelso & Company is reportedly in advanced discussions to acquire US LBM Holdings, LLC (US LBM) in a deal that could value US LBM Holdings, LLC at around $1 billion, including debt, according to people familiar with the matter. Kelso has so far outbid other private equity firms in the auction for US LBM, the people said this week. US LBM's owner, private equity firm BlackEagle Partners, LLC, may yet decide to sell the company to another bidder or hold on to it if the negotiations with Kelso are unsuccessful, the people cautioned. The sources asked not to be identified because the sale process is confidential. US LBM and BlackEagle Partners declined to comment, while Kelso did not respond to a request for comment.
