Maxeda Retail Group B.V. Key Developments

Dutch Maxeda Owners May Call Off Planned Sale

The private-equity owners of Maxeda Retail Group B.V. will possibly halt the planned sale due to lower-than-expected takeover bids, citing sources in the know. Maxeda is owned by investment firms Cinven Limited, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) and Permira Advisers Ltd. Maxeda has been up for sale since May, but suitors have not so far offered any acceptable bid price. The owners are understood to have sought a price of more than €800 million. The bids received were instead closer to €600 million, according to the insiders.
