Investors Reportedly Eyes Nocibe

Nocibé France Distribution SAS has received two takeover bids by Douglas Holding AG (DB:DOU) and LBO France in a partnership with Fosun International Limited (SEHK:656), Le Figaro said without naming its sources. Offer of Douglas seems more attractive since it is supported by its owner, Advent International Corporation. Douglas has not decided yet whether to merge the two chains, if its bid succeeds, according to unnamed source. LBO France and Fosun have not signed any agreement yet, Le Figaro said, since Fosun is still studying Nocibe's potential for development in China. According to Seenews, LBO France's spokesperson declined to comment. Nocibé's owner, Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP is searching for a way to refinance Nocibe's debt without selling it and it is still expecting another offer by LBO France. Thus it extended the deadline for offers to the end of June, 2013. Charterhouse is advised by Lazard and Morgan Stanley.
