Pacific Crest Said to Plan Buyout of Goldman-Backed Research Arm

Pacific Crest Securities, an investment bank focused on technology deals, is close to an agreement to buy China research firm Pacific Epoch from investors including Goldman Sachs Group Inc., two people familiar with the matter said.

The people, who declined to provide financial terms of the deal, asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. Pacific Crest is interested in acquiring all of Shanghai-based Pacific Epoch, which also has offices in New York and Hong Kong, said one of the people.
