Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners, a private equity firm, is reportedly close to finalizing the purchase of Silver Fleet based Textainer Group Holdings Ltd for $50 per share. Textainer is the world’s largest shipping container company and the sale will value the company at nearly $2 billion. The deal includes refinancing Textainer’s debt as well as a cash dividend payment of $4.25 a share, totaling $780 million. This marks Stonepeak’s first move towards purchasing a public company and is expected to close shortly.
