Carlyle May Buy Food Group in Middle East, North Africa

October 15, 2012

Carlyle Group LP (CG:US), the Washington- based buyout firm, is seeking to purchase a franchise of an international food group in the Middle East and North Africa to increase its revenue in the region.

“We’re planning a bolt-on acquisition to our food business,” Firas Nasir, co-head of buyouts for Carlyle in the region, told reporters on the sidelines of a conference today in Dubai. The company is conducting due diligence, he said without providing further details.

Carlyle bought a 42 percent stake in restaurant operator Alamar Foods from Saudi Arabia’s Al Jammaz family in December last year. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
