Commercial real estate firm Cassidy Turley has reportedly entered acquisition talks with Texas-based private equity firm TPG Capital.
No deal has been finalized and the discussions could end before such an agreement is reached, sources told Crain’s. The tie-up would see TPG Capital buy Cassidy Turley and potentially form a new international research services company by wedding it to DTZ, a firm under TPG’s management, according to the website.
TPG Capital, along with a group of institutional investors, purchased DTZ, which focuses on the European and Asian property markets, in June for $1.2 billion. [Crain’s] – Tom DiChristopher
