KKR Is Reported To Be Interested In Buying Stake In World Duty Free

A press reported that KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) could be interested in buying a stake in World Duty Free S.p.A. (BIT:WDF). KKR and CVC Capital Partners Limited have set their sight on the company, which is 50% owned by the Benetton family, daily Il Sole 24 Ore said on January 25, 2015 in an unsourced report.

Shares in Italy's World Duty Free rose more than 2% on January 26, 2015 after this announcement.

Benettons Will Reportedly Halve World Duty Free Stake

Italy's Benetton family is ready to halve its 50% stake in World Duty Free S.p.A. (BIT:WDF), two sources close to the matter said. Benettons control the stake throough their holding company Edizione Holding S.p.A. "The Benettons are not against diluting their stake under 30 percent," a source with knowledge of the family thinking said. The source added the family would be happy with a 15-20% stake in a well-managed, larger group. A merger with a rival company would help World Duty Free to cope with the rising costs of airport concession and will give more bargaining power in dealing with suppliers. World Duty Free’s newly appointed Chief Executive Eugenio Andrades has pledged to look at alliances in the sector. World Duty Free had no comment.
