Report: Carlyle-backed Wesco Aircraft contemplates sale

Wesco Aircraft Holdings Inc. is weighing its options for the business, including a sale, Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. aviation and defense parts distributor has engaged with investment banks to evaluate buyout interest, the sources said. However, discussions are still in preliminary stages and a deal is not yet guaranteed, they added.

Carlyle Group LP owns about a quarter of Wesco, which went public in 2011. The private equity firm initially invested in Wesco in 2006, according to the report.

Wesco did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.
