Barclays, CS line up behind TPC and Carlyle for Healthscope LBO
Private equity companies Texas Pacific Group and Carlyle have won the highly sought-after mandate for Healthscope, the Australian private healthcare provider. The A$1.99bn ($1.7bn, Eu1.3bn) buy-out is the biggest such acquisition in Australia since 2007 and will include debt financing of up to A$1.5bn.
Barclays Capital and Credit Suisse are arranging financing backing the consortium’s bid. The debt is likely to have a five year tenor and be split into a term loan ‘A’ and ‘B’, with a margin just below 450bp.
One banker estimated the financing would have about A$1bn-A$1.2bn of term
