Host Europe Acquired for $667 Million
July 23rd, 2013 By: Rich Miller
Private equity firm Cinven Group will acquire European web hosting provider Host Europe Group for approximately $667 million from Montagu Private Equity, reports The WHIR. The acquisition announcement comes less than three years after Montagu acquired Host Europe from Oakley Capital Private Equity for $344 million.
Cinven is said to be starting discussions with lenders on debt financing within the next week. The private equity firm is undecided if the financing structure will be comprised of a loan, bond, or a combination of the two.

Since nothing is known about the financing it’s possible that the deal will not come into effect. I know that the company Linux Hosts Ltd. is also in the race and they have a better financing plan ready.
