Thoma Bravo, LLC Key Developments

Investors Reportedly Eyes Stake In NCR

NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) would be the largest leveraged buyout so far this year but it’s looking less and less likely to happen, The Post has learned. Under pressure from activist shareholders, NCR put itself up for sale and has asked for binding bids by July 8, 2015. But with the clock ticking, the company has yet to give potential buyers enough financial information to pull together offers, two sources close to the sale process said. NCR is also seeking a rich price. It wants $36 per share to achieve a $10 billion deal. Private-equity suitors The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) along with Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) and Thoma Bravo, LLC are balking. “There is not enough financial information to make a binding bid,” said a source close to the deal.

Firms Seek To Acquire NCR Corp., Reports

The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) and The Carlyle Group LP (Nasdaq:CG) reportedly mull the acquisition of NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) in a leveraged buyout. They are planning to make a joint bid for NCR. The deal value is speculated to be more than $10 billion, people close to the matter stated. They added that the auction for NCR is several weeks away from completion. NCR shares soared by $4.15 or 13.2% on the news to $35.52 per share. Other firms, including Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) and Thoma Bravo, LLC, are vying for NCR, according to people familiar with the matter. There is no certainty that NCR will agree to a sale with any party, the people said. According to the news report, the sources asked not to be identified.
