Cinven, ABRY Reportedly Ready Final Bids For KKR's Northgate Unit

United States and European buyout funds are preparing final bids to acquire a division of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P.'s (NYSE:KKR) Northgate Information Solutions Holdings Limited in a deal that could value the asset at up to £470 million, sources familiar with the process said. Cinven Limited is working on submitting a binding offer ahead of a November 27, 2014 deadline, the sources said. Northgate Public Services Limited expects to receive another three or four offers from a combination of generalist and technology-centred buyout groups including ABRY Partners, LLC, one of the sources said. NPS, which is advised by Rothschild, will select a buyer in December 2014 hoping to fetch a price of eight to ten times its projected core earnings of £47 million, two sources said. Representatives at Northgate, Rothschild and Cinven declined to comment. A spokesman for ABRY could not be reached for comment, Reuters reported.

(NYSE:KKR)'s potential sale of the public sector division Northgate Public Services Limited of Northgate Information Solutions Holding Limited, banking sources said. Northgate Public Services (NPS), whose clients include Britain's police, local government agencies and the National Health Service, was put up for sale earlier in 2014.

KKR To Sell Public Sector Division Of Northgate

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) is looking to sell the public sector division, Northgate Public Services Limited of its software firm Northgate Information Solutions Holding Limited. The business will be marketed to private equity funds in an auction later this year and could be worth around $600 million, two sources familiar with the situation said. KKR has appointed Rothschild to handle the sale, sources said. KKR, which was in turn advised by JPMorgan, was interested in merging the two companies under a new private equity investor but talks fell through, partly because such a combination would have triggered an antitrust review, said the second source who can't be named because the matter is confidential.
