Unister Reportedly Relaunches Sale

Unister Travel, travel unit of Unister Holding GmbH, has reportedly attracted first round bids from buyout groups in a potential €700 million to €1 billion deal, after legal problems delayed an earlier sale attempt, people familiar with the matter said. Law firm Hengeler Mueller has compiled a legal report that will be made available to the bidders in the second round of the auction, the sources said. Jefferies is reportedly advising Unister Holding, held by its founders, on the sale of the unit. Buyout groups such as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Hellman & Friedman LLC, Silver Lake, EQT Partners AB and ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG (XTRA:PSM) earlier this week handed in tentative bids. The companies declined to comment, apart from Prosieben and Silver Lake, which were not immediately available. Jefferies and Hengeler Mueller also declined to comment.
