Bridgepoint Said to Agree $2.2 Billion Portfolio Sale

  • U.K. buyout firm selling four companies to Harbourvest
  • All companies come from Bridgepoint's 2005 vintage pool

Bridgepoint, a U.K.-based private equity firm, is near a deal to sell a portfolio of its companies worth a combined 2 billion euros ($2.2 billion) to a group backed by Harbourvest Partners, said people familiar with the matter.

The buyout firm is selling its stakes in German eyeglass maker Rodenstock GmBH, Dutch education publisher Infinitas Learning, Italian perfumery Limoni SpA and Polish rail group CTL Logistics, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Harbourvest is providing the majority of the equity for the deal though the investments will be managed by Compass Partners International, the people said.
