London Stock Exchange has agreed to buy financial information firm Refinitiv, the company said on Thursday, in a $27 billion deal that will transform the British group into a market data and analytics giant.
The deal, announced ten months after a Blackstone-led consortium completed a leveraged buyout of Refinitiv from Thomson Reuters TRI.TO, marks a rapid turnaround for the U.S. private equity group which is set to double the value of its investment, according to a person familiar with the deal.
As part of the deal initially announced last week, Refinitiv shareholders will ultimately hold around a 37% stake in LSE but less than 30% of the total voting rights.
The announcement came as LSE reported an 8% rise in first-half total income.
