CD&R close to deal with Emergency Medical Services

Private equity firm Clayton Dubilier & Rice is taking part in business negotiations to buy Emergency Medical Services

14 February 2011

Clayton Dubilier & Rice, a private equity company, is involved in ongoing business negotiations as part of a deal to buy healthcare and physician services firm Emergency Medical Services, it has been reported.

According to Reuters, a source close to the company has confirmed that business negotiations are taking place.

The source noted that should an agreement between the two companies eventually be reached, the buyout will be one of the largest leveraged deals so far this year. On Friday last week, Emergency Medical had a market capitalisation of more than $3 billion, it said.

Other firms still vying for the Emergency Medical buy include Bain Capital, which stands alongside Clayton Dubilier & Rice as the two final bidders from a group of four private equity companies.

Clayton Dubilier & Rice was founded in 1978 and boasts investors including financial firms, university endowments, public pension funds and corporate pension funds.
