Blackstone, Apollo expected to bid for Xella, Reuters reports

Blackstone (BX), Apollo (APO) and Bain are among the private equity firms said to hand in "tentative" offers for building materials maker Xella, Reuters reports, citing several people close to the deal. According to the sources, bids by the private equity firms are likely to value Xella at 6 to 7 times Xella's expected annual core earnings of EUR270M, while the sellers -- PAI Partners and Goldman Sachs' (GS) investment arm -- are hoping for a multiple of 8 times.

Deutsche views ending of SunEdison, Vivint deal as potential positive
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah believes the termination of SunEdison's (SUNE) agreement to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) is a potential longer-term positive for SunEdison and TerraForm Power (TERP). The failure may also turn out to be a positive for Vivint in the long run, Shah tells investors in a research note. Investor focus will now shift from near-term liquidity and balance sheet stress for both TerraForm and SunEdison to potential legal ramifications from Vivint and Blackstone (BX), the analyst contends. He believes, however, that the legal impact may not be that significant considering the audit committee investigation and resulting lack of financing availability.
