Apollo Global Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Protection 1

Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) is in advanced talks to acquire Protection 1, Inc. in a deal that could value the U.S. home security company at close to $1.5 billion, including debt, according to people familiar with the matter. Apollo has so far prevailed over other interested parties in an auction for Protection 1, including Ares Management LLC and The ADT Corporation (NYSE:ADT), the people said this week, asking not to be identified because the talks are confidential. The negotiations with Apollo have not concluded, and Protection 1's owner, GTCR, LLC, may yet decide to sell the company to another bidder or cancel the sale altogether, the people added. An Apollo spokesman and an ADT spokeswoman declined to comment. Protection 1, GTCR and Ares representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
