The Government Investment Corporation of Signapore, or GIC, is in talks with the Carlyle Group over a potential takeover of its RAC division, a roadside assistance company, SkyNews reports, citing a person close to the situation. The deal would be valued at more than GBP 2B, and the deal could occur within days, Sky News added. CVC Capital Patners has also expressed interest in buying the RAC unit from Carlyle.
