Investors Are Seeking Stake In Italian Banks
Dec 17 15
Investors are seeking stake in Italian banks. Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO), Centerbridge Partners, L.P. and AnaCap Financial Partners LLP are among private equity firms considering bidding to buy the four Italian lenders bailed out last month, according to people familiar with the matter. The sale of the banks could fetch more than €1 billion ($1.1 billion), or almost 30% of the €3.6 billion that was invested in Banca delle Marche S.p.A., Banca Popolare dell'Etruria e del Lazio - Società Cooperativa, Cassa di Risparmio di Ferrara S.p.A. and Cassa di Risparmio della Provincia di Chieti SpA, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private. As part of the banks’ reorganizations, they’re splitting off bad assets such as non-performing loans. Bidders are likely to focus on the largest banks, such as Banca delle Marche, the people said. They may also bid for Banca Popolare dell’Etruria e del Lazio and merge the two lenders, sources said. Deliberations are at a preliminary stage and the private equity firms may decide against a bid, the people said. Representatives for Apollo Global Management didn’t immediately return calls and e-mails seeking comment. Representatives for AnaCap Financial Partners and Centerbridge Partners wouldn’t immediately comment. A spokesman for the four banks declined to comment.
Lone Star, Apollo Reportedly Seen Bidding For BTG Pactual Unit

Investors reportedly seeks stake in Recovery do Brasil Consultoria S.A. from BTG Pactual Group (BOVESPA:BBTG11). BTG Pactual Group has asked interested parties in its stake in Recovery do Brasil Consultoria to deliver their proposals by December 23, 2015, five people with direct knowledge of the situation said. According to one source, as many as 23 firms expressed interest in Recovery do Brasil Consultoria, although no more than half a dozen are expected to submit non-binding offers. Lone Star Funds, Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO), Elliot Management Corp, Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE:OAK) and KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) are among firms specializing in distressed debt investments that may bid for the 82% stake that BTG Pactual owns in Recovery, said the sources, who requested anonymity because negotiations are under way. BTG Pactual is seeking about BRL 1.7 billion ($439 million) from the sale, should it include the bank's platform that Recovery uses to price loans, two of the sources said. Without that, the sale could earn BRL 800 million for BTG Pactual, the same sources added. Centerbridge Partners, L.P. and Monarch Alternative Capital LP are also eyeing the asset and may submit a proposal, the second source noted. The results of the first round will define how fast the divestment will occur, the sources said. An unidentified Sao Paulo-based distressed debt company, which is teaming up with undisclosed partners to explore the purchase of Recovery's bad debt portfolio or collection platform, has also entered talks and is considering bidding, said the first source. BTG Pactual declined to comment. Interested parties have done some due diligence work on Recovery's portfolio and platform, the sources said. Apollo, Elliot, Oaktree, Centerbridge and Monarch did not have an immediate comment. A representative for Lone Star declined to comment. Credit Suisse Group AG (SWX:CSGN) is in talks to buy part of BTG Pactual Group's BRL 22 billion credit portfolio, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said. No agreement has been made and a deal might not be reached, the person said, asking not to be identified discussing private negotiations. Officials at BTG and Credit Suisse declined to comment on the talks. BTG is shopping its loans to large corporations after the November 25, 2015, arrest of its founder, Andre Esteves, forced BTG Pactual into a life-or-death struggle to sell assets and raise cash. BTG’s total loan portfolio was BRL 43 billion at the end of the third quarter, though half are guarantees that can’t be sold, another person said.
