Blackstone pulls Vitalia sale

A Vitalia spokesperson confirmed to Reuters on Monday that Blackstone has pulled the sale of the private clinics company.

Potential buyers had included private equity group CVC and French real estate and healthcare company, Batipart, but Blackstone was unable to obtain the asking price of between €1.2bn to €1.4bn.

Blackstone put Vitalia on the market in April this year.
