PAI Partners Key Developments

Sycamore Said To Near Acquisition Of Hunkemoller

Sycamore Partners is nearing an agreement to buy Hunkemoller B.V. from PAI Partners, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Sycamore had been competing against other buyout firms including The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG), said the people, who asked not to be identified because talks are private. Hunkemoller may fetch about €440 million, one of the people said. Talks are ongoing and could still fall apart. Spokesmen for PAI Partners and Sycamore Partners declined to comment and a representative for Hunkemoller couldn’t be immediately reached for comment outside of usual business hours, reported Bloomberg.

PAI Plans To List Perstorp

PAI Partners plans to list Perstorp AB in adeal which values the company at $1.7 billion including debt. PAI declined comment. PAI is also working to refinance that debt.

Xella Reportedly Mulls IPO

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.
