    Billionaire Schwartz's money, approach may be right move for Canada's WestJet Airlines

    Billionaire Gerry Schwartz's $2.6 billion bid for WestJet Airlines is a bet his private equity firm's deep pockets and patience will help the Canadian carrier weather challenges and build a more formidable competitor against market leader Air Canada, industry analysts and executives said on Tuesday. Buyout firm Onex Corp pitched its offer at a rich 67% premium to the stock's Friday closing price, which would make it the world's biggest private equity-backed airline acquisition, according to Refinitiv data. Onex saw an opportunity in Canada's aviation market duopoly to build up the Calgary-based low-cost carrier against Air Canada, even in a country where high commercial aviation fees and surcharges are regularly derided by airlines, a source familiar with Onex's thinking told Reuters.

    Billionaire Schwartz makes $2.6 bln bet on Canada's WestJet Airlines

    The surprise offer for C$31 a share, a 67% premium to their closing price on Friday, sparked a surge in WestJet shares, which closed up 60% at $29.61. If completed, it would be the biggest private equity deal ever for an airline, according to Refinitiv data. If Onex obtains shareholder and regulatory approvals, the deal would help Schwartz get his hands on an airline two decades after he missed out on buying Air Canada, WestJet's bigger rival.
