NEW YORK, June 28 General Electric is
looking to sell its CareCredit healthcare financing unit in a
deal that may be valued at about $2 billion, people familiar
with the situation told Reuters on Friday.
GE has hired Goldman Sachs Group Inc to oversee the
sale process and attracted buyout interest from a few banks as
well as at least one nonbank financial services firm, according
to the four sources, who wished to remain anonymous because they
are not permitted to speak to the media.
A Goldman spokesman declined to comment. Calls and emails to
GE and CareCredit were not immediately returned.
