    (Reuters) - Plastic packaging products maker Berry Plastics Group Inc(BERY) said it would buy Avintiv Inc, which makes materials used in products ranging from diapers to disinfectant wipes, for about $2.45 billion in cash from Blackstone Group LP(BX) .

    Berry Plastics (BERY), which makes products such as duct tapes, spray adhesives and food wrap films, said it would buy Avintiv on a debt-free, cash-free basis.

    Berry Plastics' (BERY) shares rose nearly 2 percent to $34 in trading before the bell on Friday.

    Avintiv, which changed its name from PGI Specialty Materials Inc last month, was bought by Blackstone Group(BX) in 2010 for $326.2 million in cash from private equity firm MatlinPatterson in 2010.

    The company, as PGI, filed for an initial public offering in February. At that time the company said its net loss had nearly tripled to about $97 million in the nine months ended Sept. 27, while sales rose 2.2 percent to $1.5 billion.

    Avintiv's specialty materials are also used in feminine hygiene products, face masks and surgical gowns and its customers include Procter & Gamble Co , Kimberly-Clark Corp and Cardinal Health Inc .

    Avintiv has 23 locations in 14 countries and supplies to many of the consumer and industrial product manufacturers that Berry Plastics(BERY) supplies to, Berry Plastics(BERY) said.

    Berry Plastics (BERY) said it expects the deal to add to its earnings and free cash flow and that it had secured debt financing to fund the deal.

    The company expects the deal to close by the end of this year.

    Berry Plastics' (BERY) financial advisers are Credit Suisse and Barclays, while Bryan Cave is its legal adviser. Citi and BofA Merrill Lynch were Avintiv and Blackstone's financial advisers and Simpson Thatcher & Bartlett LLP is their legal adviser.

    Goldman Sachs is securitising a loan to Blackstone backed by commercial real estate across the UK, highlighting a growing role for non-banks in a market that has struggled for traction in recent years.
    Securitisation involves taking loans — in this case for the purchase of commercial real estate — and packaging them into bonds, which can then be sold on to investors.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • NXP agreed in March to buy Freescale for $11.8 billion in cash and stock, excluding debt. To ease antitrust concerns, NXP sold an overlapping radio frequency amplifier business for $1.8 billion in May to China's state-owned Jianguang Asset Management. Both deals are expected to close later this year.

    The combination of NXP and Freescale will control about 13 percent of a $26 billion global auto electronics market, ahead of Renesas of Japan and Infineon of Germany.

    When Blackstone Group LP's(BX) top executives learned last week that they were losing their longtime chief financial officer, they eschewed a lengthy search and went with one of their most-tenured deal makers.

    The world's largest private-equity firm said last week that Michael Chae would become its finance chief next month when Laurence Tosi, Blackstone's CFO since 2008, leaves for the same role at Airbnb Inc.

    Leaders at Blackstone, which manages roughly $333 billion on behalf of pensions, endowments and wealthy individuals, decided the company's CFO should be someone who could potentially run the firm, and that anyone in that position must have an investing background, according to people familiar with the hire.

    In Mr. Chae, 46 years old, the firm chose one of its most experienced deal makers and trouble shooters. He joined Blackstone in 1997, before the global firm—housed then in a single Manhattan office—even disclosed its assets under management.

    Becoming CFO "represents a natural progression" of his career at Blackstone, Mr. Chae said in an interview Monday. " Having worked across our businesses and regions as an investor, to be able to bring that experience and knowledge to driving the operations of the firm as a whole is an exciting opportunity," he said.

    Mr. Chae played a central role in some of the firm's largest and most lucrative private-equity investments, including those involving arts-and-crafts retailer Michaels Companies Inc., hotelier Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. and television-ratings firm Nielsen NV.

    "His investing background is an extremely helpful element to his credibility as a CFO," said John Waldron, co-head of investment banking at Goldman

  • I also own MLPs..

    Jim Cramer addressed the MLP bloodbath yesterday on RealMoney, positing that it is the result of a "big liquidation" from a single fund that owns the energy MLPs. "These stocks are being liquidated and it isn't because of their fundamentals," Cramer wrote. "It's because some unnamed moronic fund is out there flailing, dangerous, selling everything and when he's through the bear market in them will be done."
