11:30 EDTAPO, SIG, NILE, ZLCJewelers higher following report of PE interest in U.K. chains
Shares of several publicly listed jewelers are moving higher after The Telegraph reported late Sunday that private equity firm Apollo Global Management (APO) is in talks to buy Aurum, which own two U.K. jewelry chains, for about GBP180M. That valuation roughly equates to six times the forecast for the company's earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, according to the report, which added that a deal may be completed as soon as this week. Shares of some U.S.-listed jewelers are moving higher today in mid-morning trading, including Signet Jewelers (SIG), up 3.87% to $54.18, Zale (ZLC), up 3.31% to $4.94 and Blue Nile (NILE) up 4.76% to $39.28.
