Bpifrance Participations SA Key Developments

PSP Investments And Arcus Infrastructure Reportedly Nearing Deal To Acquire TDF

Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP) and Arcus Infrastructure Partners LLP are nearing a deal to buy the French operations of TDF S.A.S., in a deal worth approximately $3.55 billion, reported National Post's Financial Post & FP Investing citing several sources familiar with the matter. TPG Capital, L.P., Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP and Ardian have been seeking to sell the operations for nearly a year to repay $3.8 billion debt pile. One of the sources said, "PSP and Arcus have tabled a preliminary bid and are working to finalize their offer. The deal is now two to three weeks away." The sources added that Bpifrance Participations SA is expected to keep its 24% stake in TDF. Another source said that PSP and Arcus have yet to complete due diligence and financing of the deal. The source added that there was no certainty the deal will go through at this stage. PSP Investments and Arcus were not immediately available to comment to National Post's Financial Post & FP Investing.

Orange (ENXTPA:ORA) has acquired an additional 14.6% stake in Cascadia from Bpifrance Participations SA for €5.1 million, BFM Business reported. The stake of Orange reached 48.8% after the transaction.

American Tower Reportedly Pulls Out Of TDF Sale

American Tower Corporation (NYSE:AMT) is is understood to have pulled out of the race to acquire TDF S.A.S, with first round bids due in August 2013, sources told TMT Finance. Rothschild is thought to be leading the sale process for owners TPG Capital, L.P., AXA Private Equity, Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP and Fonds Stratégique d'Investissement SA who are apparently targeting 10-11 x EBITDA, which equates to over €4 billion. Media reports said Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas have also been advising the sellers. Also, the withdrawal of ATC leaves Arqiva Limited as one of the frontrunners, said one source, with AMP Limited (ASX: AMP) and a handful of other private equity firms noted as prospective buyers. Morgan Stanley is aligned to one of the buyers, a source told TMT Finance.
