Avista Capital Holdings, L.P. Key Developments

ConvaTec Said To Mull Sale and IPO

ConvaTec Healthcare B S.a.r.l. has been approached by investment bankers and potential buyers to discuss a sale that could value the company at $8 billion to $9 billion, people familiar with the matter said. Avista Capital Partners and Nordic Capital won’t start a formal sale-process until later this year at the earliest, and are also considering an initial public offering for ConvaTec, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing private information. While ConvaTec is willing to wait until next year to sell or start a stock offering, the two owners have made it clear to advisers that they would sell at the right price sooner, one of the people said. One potential buyer is 3M Company (NYSE:MMM), one of the people said, though 3M is probably too large a buyer to use ConvaTec to change its tax domicile.
