Medline could be largest PE deal since 2009
Medline is a large contributor to the medical equipment business with annual revenues equal to $17.5 billion. The deal would see Medline sold for $30B; Blackstone, Carlyle and Hellman & Friedman may have reach consensus to take a majority stake in the firm. With debt, the buyout could represent $34B, one of the largest healthcare LBO ever done.
