Flexigroup Reportedly Exits GE Money Sale Contest

The sales process being run by Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley for what is commonly known as ‘GE Money’ is currently in the second round and final bids are due on March 10, 2015. However, advisors are now asking participants in the process to lodge firm bids, which are thought to come in at around $2.1 billion. FlexiGroup Limited (ASX:FXL) had been part of a consortium competing for the business with KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Värde Partners, Inc. and Deutsche Bank AG (DB:DBK) interests. However, numerous sources told The Australian on February 2, 2015, that Flexigroup was no longer part of the Citi advised consortium and some believe it is completely out of the running. Other parties in the second round of the process is TPG Capital, L.P. A Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG) and Pepper Australia Pty Ltd combination is the fourth participant, with The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) potentially offering backing to the pair. Wesfarmers Limited (ASX:WES) was out of the contest, but its consortium partner Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) could still be in the frame to buy what is largely credit card and consumer loans worth around $7.5 billion, sources have said.
