Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) is reportedly seeking to acquire timeshare company Hilton Grand Vacations (NYSE: HGV) for about $40 a share, Bloomberg reported Monday, citing people familiar with the matter. 

In August, the New York Post reported the bid by Apollo was indicated at as much as $36 a share.

Hilton shares jumped on the news Monday and were trading 6.3% higher at $34.70 at the time of publication. The stock has a 52-week high of $36 and a 52-week low of $24.16.

Apollo shares were trading down slightly at $38.71, while Blackstone shares were down 1.34% at $46.48. 

Apollo reportedly wants to merge Hilton with Diamond Resorts, a company it purchased in 2016.
