NEW YORK, September 28, 2022--KKR, a leading global investment firm, today released "The Times They Are A-Changin," a new Insights piece by Henry McVey, CIO of KKR’s Balance Sheet and Head of Global Macro and Asset Allocation (GMAA).

A KKR & Co Inc led group has withdrawn a A$20 billion ($13 billion) bid for Australian hospital operator Ramsay Health Care after talks hit a stalemate, killing Australia's biggest deal of the year and sending the target's shares tumbling. The would-be buyers had proposed paying A$88 per share in cash for the company in April, but cut the cash component in August after Ramsay reported a worse than expected 39% slump in annual profit, blaming COVID-19-related staffing problems. Then last month Ramsay said the KKR-led group had notified it that it would not improve on what Ramsay considered a "meaningfully inferior" offer, due to the target company's weak business performance.
