Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. Key Developments

Several Suitors Eye Goodpack

China International Marine Containers Group Co. Ltd. (SZSE:000039) is among the many firms eyeing acquisition of Goodpack Ltd. (SGX:G05), reported The Business Times citing sources. According to the report, Goodpack also held meetings with The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) and The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) in the week ending April 11, 2014. Goodpack has also reportedly attracted the interest of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (NYSE:KKR). Several banks are involved in financing a deal for Goodpack, sources told Business Times.

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.

Go Daddy Group Reportedly Hires Advisors For Its IPO

The report added that its isn’t clear yet how much money Go Daddy plans to raise in an IPO or how much stock its owners, including the investment firms Silver Lake and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (NYSE:KKR), plan to sell.
