  • Nursing-home company is luring industry players, buyout firms

European health-care services providers Attendo AB and DomusVi are among companies considering bids for German nursing-home operator Alloheim Senioren-Residenzen SE, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Other potential bidders for Carlyle Group LP-owned Alloheim include Belgium’s closely held Armonea SA, the people said, asking not to be identified because the deliberations are private. Alloheim has also drawn interest from private equity firms such as PAI Partners SAS, BC Partners, Nordic Capital, CVC Capital Partners, Cinven, Advent International and Antin Infrastructure Partners, the people said.

Non-binding bids are due by the end of next week, the people said, asking not to be identified because the deliberations are private. No final decisions have been made and the companies and buyout firms may still decide against a bid, the people said.

Representatives for Carlyle, Attendo and DomusVi, which is backed by investors including Intermediate Capital Group, declined to comment. Nordic Capital, BC Partners and Advent also declined to comment. Armonea, Cinven, CVC, PAI and Antin didn’t immediately return calls or emails seeking comment.

Carlyle, which acquired Alloheim in 2013, is aiming for a value of more than 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) including debt for the business, people familiar with the matter said last month. Alloheim, based in Dusseldorf, Germany, operates more than 150 senior-care residences and employs more than 14,000, according to its website.
