13:39 EDTCGGIC in talks with Carlyle over possible GBP 2B takeover of RAC, Sky News says
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. A takeover of RAC would end its prospects of becoming a publicly traded company. The board of RAC will meet in the coming days to decide whether the division should go through with an IPO or pursue a sale of the business, Sky News added, citing an insider. GIC would consider taking a minority stake in RAC before its IPO if it decides to go public, the insider added. Reference Link
