Blackstone Group and Carlyle Group along with privately owned company Hellman & Friedman are buying a majority stake in Medline Industries. Medline Industries is privately held, family-led health care firm that generated $17.5 billion in revenue in 2020.
The deal is valued around $34 billion, according to a Wall Street Journal report that cited people familiar with the matter. The transaction is expected to be completed in 2021.
After the deal, while the private equity group will own a majority stake in Medline, the Mills family will continue to be the largest shareholder in the company and will retain their leadership roles.
