FRANKFURT Aug 5 Barclays Private Equity is in
advanced talks to sell its majority stake in German health
services company GHD, Financial Times Deutschland reported,
citing GHD manager and part-owner Andreas Rudolph.
A deal may be struck in the first two weeks of September and
completed before the end of the year, the newspaper cited
Rudolph as saying in its Thursday edition.
Rudolph told the newspaper he had not yet decided whether to
keep his GHD stake of more than 35 percent, cut or increase it.
"Everything is possible, from zero to 100 percent," he said.
GHD will generate almost 300 million euros ($394 million) in
sales this year, Rudolph said.
The company offers health services including transport and
storage of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, nutrition
consulting for cancer patients and infusion therapies.
Barclays Private Equity (BARC.L) was not immediately
available for comment.
