A CHINESE state-backed waste company is taking on the American private equity giant Apollo in a £1bn battle to buy Biffa.
At least one other suitor, from southeast Asia, is also in late-stage talks about a takeover of the British waste disposal business, City sources said this weekend.
Biffa’s owners, the American investment firms Angelo Gordon, Avenue Capital and Sankaty Advisors, put the company up for sale last year. They hired Rothschild to manage an auction and also consider a stock market float.
The potential Chinese buyer, described as a “state and private enterprise”, is currently edging ahead in discussions, bankers said. Biffa and Rothschild declined to comment.
Biffa, which has more than 6,000 staff, was once part of the utilities giant Severn Trent. It was spun out in 2006 and two years later taken over by HBOS, Global Infrastructure Partners and Montagu Private Equity in a £1.7bn deal.
