Ontario Teachers Reportedly Leads To Acquire Telesat

Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan is the front-runner to acquire Loral Space & Communications, Inc. (NasdaqGS:LORL)'s stake in Telesat Holdings Inc. for about $7 billion including debt, people with knowledge of the matter said. The Telesat purchase would come in two pieces: buying publicly traded Loral, which owns 63% of the company, and acquiring the rest from Public Sector Pension Investment Board, which co-owns the satellite operator. Loral could be bought for more than $80 a share, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. The shares rose 6.4% to $74.56. Canada Pension Plan Investment Board also has been in talks with both of Telesat’s owners, the people said. Public Sector Pension owns about 37% of Telesat and controls about 67% of the voting rights. As a result, both Loral and Public Sector Pension must agree to a deal for a full sale of Telesat. The discussions signal that Loral’s largest shareholder, Mark Rachesky’sMHR Fund Management LLC, and Public Sector Pension are working together to get a deal completed. The two co-owners of Telesat were previously not talking with each other, making a joint transaction tricky, according to the people. A sale could be announced later this month or in early May, the people said. According to Bloomberg, Michael Bolitho, a Telesat spokesman, declined to comment, as did Deborah Allan, a spokeswoman for Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. According to Bloomberg, a representative for Public Sector Pension didn’t respond to requests for comment, while Linda Sims, a spokeswoman for Canada Pension Plan, declined to comment. Apax Partners LLP; Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (NYSE:KKR); and The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) had looked at buying Telesat, and all have dropped out of the bidding, the people familiar with the situation said.
