Fresenius, PE Firms Reportedly Eye Danone's Medical Nutrition Unit

Fresenius SE & Co KGaA (DB:FRE) and private equity houses PAI Partners and Permira Advisers Ltd. are reportedly weighing bids for the medical nutrition unit of Danone (ENXTPA:BN), sources familiar with the situation told Reuters. Fresenius sought to take over the division earlier in 2014 but withdraw from the deal as it considered the price asked to be too high, sources told Reuters. Any agreement is still months away as the transaction is considered a complex one, the news agency noted. PAI is ready to strike any deal for the division along with co-investors, one of the sources added. All companies mentioned declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.
