PAI Partners Key Developments
Xella Reportedly Mulls IPO
Jun 23 15
The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS) and PAI Partners owners of Xella International GmbH are bringing forward a planned stock market listing of Xella and have picked banks to arrange the potential €2.5 billion deal, two people familiar with the matter said. The owners have hired Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas to organize the flotation, which is expected to take place as early as the fourth quarter of this year, the sources said. Much like other private-equity investors encouraged by buoyant equities markets to list their assets, Xella's owners have decided that a 2015 initial public offering (IPO) may reap a better result than a 2016 deal, which they had originally planned, they added. PAI, Goldman Sachs, BNP and Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

Investors Reportely Eyes Stake In Bakkavör
May 22 15
Sky News understands that PAI Partners Pamplona Capital Management LLP are two of the buyout groups which have lodged an interest in acquiring a large stake in Bakkavör Group Ltd. Their interest comes nine months after advisers at Barclays were appointed to find new owners for shares in Bakkavor which remain held by Icelandic banks as a hangover from the 2008 financial crisis. Barclays is hunting a buyer for the 25% of Bakkavor which is owned by Arion Banki, while other Icelandic institutions, including the Lífeyrissjódur verslunarmanna and the Gildi-lífeyrissjódur, which between them hold about 12% of Bakkavör, are also expected to participate in the share sale. Bakkavor, PAI and Pamplona declined to comment.
