Melrose Eyes £4 Billion Bid For Philips Lighting

Melrose Industries PLC (LSE:MRO) is eyeing a bid for Philips Lighting B.V. which could be worth £4 billion, Sky News learns. Sky News has learnt that Melrose is contemplating whether to join an auction of the business, which is drawing interest from some of the world's largest buyout funds. If Melrose secures a deal to buy Philips Lighting, it would mark its largest takeover to date, but would also represent a departure from the series of acquisitions it has made since it launched 13 years ago. One source close to the Philips sale process said that while Melrose was examining a bid, its aversion to using levels of debt employed by private equity firms to finance transactions meant its prospects of succeeding with a bid would be lower than usual. Other bidders for Philips Lighting include Apollo Management, L.P., Bain Capital, LP and KKR & Co. L.P., the buyout firms. Christopher Miller, Melrose's Chairman, said last month that the company had begun the search for a new acquisition. "We are optimistic that a suitable acquisition will be identified to bring additional shareholder value and we look forward to inviting investors to participate in this next project in due course," he said.
