Blackstone Reportedly Rejects $2 Billion Offer For Center Parcs

BC Partners and Bank of Canada Pension Fund have had $2 billion joint takeover offer for Center Parcs (UK) Group Limited reportedly rejected by owner The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX).

BC Partners and CPP are expected to come back with another offer for the leisure group. Blackstone hired investment bank Rothschild last month to draw up list of strategic options for Center Parcs. Among those options is a refinancing of the company that would provide shareholders with sizeable payday before a sale or flotation.
