General Electric Reportedly Hires Advisor To Sell Interbanca And Unit That Funds Leveraged Buyouts
May 28 15
General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) has engaged Deutsche Bank to sell GE Capital Interbanca S.p.A., according to two sources familiar with the matter. The source did not disclose how much the sale might fetch. One of the sources said that Deutsche Bank could conduct a piecemeal sale and offload Interbanca's units such as lending, factoring, leasing and fleet as standalone businesses as a way to maximise value. It could also combine some of the assets with their European equivalents and favour a "bundle" deal provided there is enough appetite from prospective bidders, source added. Reuters reported that spokesmen at GE Capital and Deutsche Bank declined to comment. Several private-equity firms are vying to buy General Electric Co.’s unit that funds leveraged buyouts, in a sale process that could fetch more than $17 billion. General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), which enlisted J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. to auction off the buyout-finance business, recently narrowed down the suitors from an initial round involving a dozen bidders. KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) and Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE:ARES) are among the firms expected to submit final-round bids for the unit on May 28, 2015, according to people familiar with the sale process. Canada’s largest pension fund, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and Guggenheim Securities, LLC also are expected to submit offers, the people said. An agreement could be announced as soon as next week, the people added. The sale is part of GE’s efforts to unload the bulk of its GE Capital business.GE is also selling a portfolio consisting of $74 billion of loans to U.S. businesses.
