SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore's Goodpack Ltd (GPAK.SI) confirmed on Tuesday it is in discussions with KKR & Co (KKR.N) about a possible buyout by the U.S. private equity firm, the company said in a statement.

The announcement follows reports on Monday that KKR was nearing the deal. If successful, the purchase of Goodpack would be KKR's first purchase of a listed company from its latest Asia fund, which raised $6 billion.
