Healthscope on possible 2.7 Biilion takeover by TPG and carlyle

With 44 private hospitals spread throughout every Australian state and territory, Healthscope is the country’s second largest private healthcare provider behind Ramsay Health.

The big private hospital operator Healthscope has squeezed out of its two suitors, TPG and Carlyle, the biggest private equity takeover in more than four years. Healthscope announced yesterday that after an exhaustive three-month process it would recommend that shareholders accept a $6.26 a share cash offer worth $2.7 billion from the pair, representing a 16 per cent premium on the closing price of $5.40 on Friday.

John Durie: "The Healthscope deal makes more sense from the perspective of a private equity manager with the need to spend money than it does from a value perspective… It is the need for private equity managers to invest money at seemingly any cost to maximise their own fee earnings."

Commodity trading should have clear picture like how they can earn money from ncdex or mcx trading and for that they need to track various listed commodities and should rely on research rather than speculation.
