May 28 (Reuters) - Domain Holdings Australia said on Friday it would join a consortium looking to acquire a 10% stake in online real estate platform PEXA's holding company, without naming who it was partnering with.
This comes a day after PEXA's top shareholder Link Administration Holdings Ltd said private-equity giant KKR & Co had offered to buy PEXA in an over A$3 billion ($2.32 billion) deal and was expecting to team up with Domain.
Shareholder registry firm Link has been evaluating a trade sale or an initial public offering for PEXA, which has seen rapid growth due to a booming Australian property market, and had set June as a deadline for bidders.
Property classifieds operator Domain said it was mulling acquiring a stake in Torrens Group Holdings, owned 44.2% by Link, and rest by Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners and Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
Link did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. ($1 = 1.2915 Australian dollars) (Reporting by Anushka Trivedi in Bengaluru; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
