Doncasters Group Limited Key Developments

Beijing Xinwei Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Doncasters

Beijing Xinwei Technology Group Co., Ltd. (SHSE:600485) is in detailed talks to buy Doncasters Group Limited, Sky News has learnt. Sky News revealed that Doncasters' defence unit was expected to be separated ahead of a Chinese takeover amid concerns about the ownership of a unit which produces missile fins and components for launch systems. It is unclear whether those issues have been raised by the Ministry of Defence or other parts of the UK Government about the deal. However, a separation of the unit is potentially complex because of systems and other issues, another source added. A Chinese takeover of Doncasters could be signed within weeks of Theresa May's launch of an industrial strategy aimed at positioning the UK strongly to exploit emerging technologies. It is expected to fetch well over £1bn from a sale, which is being handled by Goldman Sachs. The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) and Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Inc., three big private equity groups, have also examined bids for Doncasters, but sources said that Xinwei was now the only active party in talks with Dubai International Capital L.L.C., its current owner. A Doncasters spokeswoman declined to comment.

Blackstone, Carlyle Reported To Be Considering Bids For Doncasters

The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) and Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Inc. are examining takeover bids for Doncasters Group Limited, upon being put for sale by its owner, Dubai International Capital L.L.C., according Sky News report. An auction of the company is kicking off this September and could fetch a price tag in the region of £1.5 billion. Sources said that bankers acting for DIC were contacting a small group of private equity firms and specialist manufacturers to gauge their appetite to buy Doncasters. The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS) is now advising on the auction, with Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse Group AG (SWX:CSGN) also involved.
