Netafim Reportedly Draws Interest From Private Equity And Chinese Bidders

International buyout groups and Chinese investment funds are expected to submit bids for Netafim Ltd., which could fetch around $1.5 billion, within the next few weeks, two banking sources said on May 26, 2017. Netafim said in March 2017, had hired Goldman Sachs (GS.N) to handle a possible sale or public offering of the company. Centerview and Bank of America (BAC.N) have also been appointed to advise on the deal. CVC Limited (ASX:CVC) and Bain Capital Private Equity, LP and Fosun International Limited (SEHK:656) and Primavera Capital Group were named by sources as possible bidders. The firm, majority owned Permira, could still opt for a listing in New York if bids are perceived as too low, two of the sources said. Permira, Netafim, CVC and Bain Capital declined to comment. Fosun International (0656.HK) and Primavera Capital were not immediately available to comment. Lindsay Corporation may also show an interest, one of the sources said.

Toshiba Reportedly Rejects Two Preemptive Bids For Smart Meter Group Landis+Gyr As Too Low

Toshiba Corporation (TSE:6502) has reportedly rejected two preemptive bids for Landis+Gyr Inc. as too low and has hired bankers to prepare debt packages of around $1 billion, Reuters yesterday reported, citing people familiar with the matter. Toshiba has rejected the bids for nearly $2 billion from CVC Capital Partners Limited and Hitachi Ltd. (TSE:6501), while another private equity group, which had made an offer earlier this year was also rejected, the report said. Toshiba is instead waiting for tentative offers to come in by May 22 deadline, for which potential suitors including Advent International Corporation, AEA Investors LP, BC Partners, Bain Capital Private Equity, LP, The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG), Cinven Limited, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Inc., Onex Corporation (TSX:OCX) and Triton are expected to bid, the report added. Toshiba had hired UBS Group AG (SWX:UBSN) to explore a potential sale or initial public offering of Landis+Gyr, which could take place as early as after the European summer.

BJ's Wholesale Club Inc. Reportedly Is Up For Sale

BJ's Wholesale Club Inc. reportedly is up for sale. BJ’s Wholesale Club is putting itself up for sale, and Amazon.com, Inc. (NasdaqGS:AMZN) has expressed modest internal interest in the chain, sources tell The Post. Instead, CVC Capital Partners Limited and Leonard Green & Partners, L.P., are pressing ahead for an outright sale that could fetch more than $4 billion, according to people close to the situation. BJ's Wholesale Club’s has been interviewing bankers so it can begin a sale process, and the company plans to distribute sales books in a few weeks, sources said. Buyout firms, like KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Bain Capital Private Equity, TPG Capital, L.P. and The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), are expected to take a look, insiders said. Amazon has also recently discussed evaluating BJ's Wholesale Club’s as an acquisition target, a source close to the situation said. It is not known if Amazon is still interested or, if it is, will bid on the chain if it goes on the block. CVC Capital Partners and Leonard Green & Partners expect to attract between $4 billion and $4.5 billion in a sale. A BJ's Wholesale Club’s spokesman said, “As a matter of policy, BJ’s Wholesale Club does not comment on rumors and speculation. As a company, we’re focused on providing outstanding value and service to our members.” Amazon did not return calls.
