Chinese Suitors Are Vying To Hop Into Dreams

Chinese suitors are vying to hop into Dreams Ltd. in a £400 million takeover. Dreams was put up for sale at the start of 2017 by Sun European Partners, LLP, who have hired Rothschild Inc. to run an auction. It is understood that firstround bidders include China Beds Direct LLC (MLILY). MLILY is also up against King Koil Shanghai Sleep System Co., Ltd. (King Koil China). It is understood that Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. (JSE:SNH) had explored a takeover but abandoned a bid because of competition concerns. The two Chinese bidders are also competing with Silentnight Group Limited.

Dreams Ltd. has attracted interest from several entities. It is understood that several US private equity investors have expressed early interest in the brand, although a sale is not likely to be agreed until later 2017.
