Carlyle Reportedly Holds Talks About £2 billion Stake Sale in RAC
Jul 9 14
The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) (‘Carlyle’) has been holding secret talks about a £2 billion stake sale of RAC Limited. Sky News has learnt that Carlyle is in preliminary discussions with competitors including Apax Partners, LLP and BC Partners about an outright takeover of RAC. The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) has also been sounded out about its appetite for a deal but is not thought to be interested. It was unclear on July 9, 2014 whether any of the talks with other buyout firms would lead to a deal, with several sources close to the RAC saying that they still expected it to become a publicly-listed company. Sky News revealed in May 2014 that Carlyle had appointed Lazard to advise it on options to exit its investment, on which it hopes to have doubled the value of the RAC. The RAC, Carlyle, Apax Partners and BC Partners declined to comment.
