Areal Bank: a buyout is under consideration
A consortium with the support of Advent International and Centerbridge Partners is examining a possible takeover of Aareal Bank AG, according to people familiar with the matter. The buyout companies are considering a possible buyout to remove Aareal Bank from the stock market, said insiders, who declined to be named because the information was confidential. Aareal Bank shares have so far risen 21% this year, which translates to a market value of around 1.4 billion euros. The deliberations continued and there was no certainty that they would result in a transaction, he said. An Aareal Bank representative declined to comment. Spokesmen for Advent and Centerbridge declined to comment immediately.
