wesfarmers ltd (WES) Key Developments

FlexiGroup May Not Remain In Race To Buy GE Assets

FlexiGroup Limited (ASX:FXL) may not remain in the race to buy General Electric Capital Corporation's AUD 7.5 billion-plus Australian and New Zealand consumer lending business. Potential suitors have begun digesting the details in the information memorandum for the GE business and have found it could be more profitable than originally thought. Based on a sale struck on a multiple of eight times earnings, a cheque of about AUD 2 billion would need to be written, almost double original estimates. So it is hard to see how FlexiGroup could make a deal work, sources say.Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG) has been in talks about forming a consortium with Pepper Group and York Capital, but the latest expectation is that perhaps The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) could join with Macquarie or even TPG Capital, L.P., while Pepper Australia Pty Ltd. may not be part of the cluster. Other potential bidders are Wesfarmers, KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Westpac Banking Corporation (ASX:WBC), and for the New Zealand assets only, Heartland Bank Limited.
