General Electric Reportedly Hires Advisor To Sell Interbanca And Unit That Funds Leveraged Buyouts
May 28 15
General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) has engaged Deutsche Bank to sell GE Capital Interbanca S.p.A., according to two sources familiar with the matter. The source did not disclose how much the sale might fetch. One of the sources said that Deutsche Bank could conduct a piecemeal sale and offload Interbanca's units such as lending, factoring, leasing and fleet as standalone businesses as a way to maximise value. It could also combine some of the assets with their European equivalents and favour a "bundle" deal provided there is enough appetite from prospective bidders, source added. Reuters reported that spokesmen at GE Capital and Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

An agreement could be announced as soon as next week, the people added.
