Report: PE firms among potential suitors for Agfa-Gevaert's healthcare IT unit

KKR & Co. Inc., Permira Advisers Ltd. and Advent International Corp. are among the buyout firms expected to submit first-round bids for the healthcare IT unit of Belgian digital imaging company Agfa-Gevaert NV on Oct. 22, Reuters reported, citing people close to the matter.

The sale is part of the company's plan to streamline its business, the people said, adding that the unit is set to log core profit of approximately €50 million in 2019 and could have a valuation of up to €750 million.

Other potential bidders in the auction managed by JP Morgan include German rival CompuGroup Medical SE and Ardian-backed Dedalus SpA, sources said.

Reuters reported that Agfa and the potential bidders either did not comment on the matter or were not immediately available for comment.
