Labour warns Apollo against pursuing interest in FirstGroup

FGP

The Guardian12 April 2018. Labour and the RMT trade union have warned US private equity firm Apollo Global Management off pursuing its interest in transport firm FirstGroup, after the British company rejected a takeover approach. FirstGroup, which operates UK rail franchises including Great Western and TransPennine Express, nearly 20% of local bus routes outside London and the US Greyhound coach service, said it had turned down a proposed cash bid from Apollo that it claimed “fundamentally undervalues the company and is opportunistic in nature”. “The acquisition of a large UK employer providing essential services to the public by a foreign private equity fund seems unlikely to be welcomed in the current political environment,” it said. “The last thing public transport in the UK needs is for FirstGroup to be taken over by a company that will aggressively cut costs and extract even greater profits at the expense of taxpayers and passengers.

FirstGroup could face pressure to break up after rejecting approach

FGP

LONDON, April 12 (Reuters) - British transport company FirstGroup could be forced to break itself up or sell off parts of its business after rejecting a takeover approach from a U.S. private equity group. Analysts said that investor patience with FirstGroup, the operator of Greyhound buses in the U.S. and Britain's Great Western railway, was wearing thin and the offer could force management to act or prompt other suitors to try to break up the company. Any takeover deal for FirstGroup in its entirety or break up would not be straightforward, the analysts said, given that the British government would need to approve a change in control of rail franchises and the company's pension deficit. Royal Bank of Canada (Other OTC: RBCDF - news) analyst Damian Brewer suggested that one option could be for management itself to break up the group, while Jefferies analyst Joe Spooner said investors would want to hear more about the details of the possible bid.
