- There's apparently muted interest for the First Data (Pending:FDC) IPO as the deal price has been cut to $16-$17 per share from $18-$20, according to Barron's. The sale is expected to price later today.
- At issue for First Data is a still-heavy debt load and little valuation discount to smaller, faster-growing payments-and-processing names like Vantiv (NYSE:VNTV), Total Systems Services (NYSE:TSS), Global Payments (NYSE:GPN), and Heartland Payments Systems (NYSE:HPY). It's a hot sector and the whole group is up sharply this year.
- First Data would still raise $2.6B at the midpoint of the reportedly revised range, with a valuation of about $15B, and more than $18B in debt still outstanding after the IPO.
- Bernstein's Lisa Ellis: “Our perspective on First Data’s business outlook, in brief — chronic underperformer in a market with strong secular growth, on a slow, steady improvement path.”
- KKR took First Data private in a top-ticker of a deal in 2007 for $30B.
