    Buyout Firm Tears Up a $1.7 Billion Greyhound Bus Ticket

    U.S. private equity group Apollo confirmed on Tuesday that it won't make an offer for British train and bus operator FirstGroup Plc, which also owns America’s Greyhound network. Apollo didn’t say why it's backing away, and all we know from FirstGroup is that the price Apollo had in mind was too low to warrant further discussion. The U.S. buyout firm’s interest had drawn screams of “asset-stripper" from the left-wing opposition Labour party and trade unions.

    Sterling strength, geopolitics outweigh M&A activity on FTSE

    A spate of dealmaking and strong financial stocks were outweighed by anxiety over the Syrian conflict and a rising pound on Thursday, keeping Britain's FTSE 100 flat. Britain's leading stock index (.FTSE) ended the day up 0.02 percent at 7,258.34 points, lagging European indices which gained in a recovery rally as some saw an easing of tensions over possible U.S. military action in Syria. "You've got the trade concerns on one side ... and you've got the threat of a military conflict in Syria, so while that's top of the agenda it's hard so see how the market can pave a road to recovery," Jasper Lawler, head of research at London Capital Group, said.

    FirstGroup could face pressure to break up after rejecting approach

    British transport company FirstGroup (FGP.L) could be forced to break itself up or sell off parts of its business after rejecting a takeover approach from a U.S. private equity group. FirstGroup announced that it had turned down a "possible cash offer" from Apollo Global Management (APO.N) after the market closed on Wednesday, sending its shares up by as much as 12 percent early on Thursday. Analysts said that investor patience with FirstGroup, the operator of Greyhound buses in the U.S. and Britain's Great Western railway, was wearing thin and the offer could force management to act or prompt other suitors to try to break up the company.
