CD&R Nears $3 Billion Deal for Roper Technologies Unit

  • An agreement could be announced as soon as this month
  • Sarasota, Florida-based Roper began review of unit last year

Private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice is nearing a deal to buy a majority stake in Roper Technologies Inc.’s process-technology unit in a deal that values the division at as much as $3 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

The buyout firm could announce a deal for the unit as soon as this month, said the people, who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. Sarasota, Florida-based Roper could retain a stake in the business as part of any transaction, they said. Final terms haven’t been agreed upon, and the deal could still fall through, the people said.
