Bain Capital in Talks to Acquire Apex Tool Group

Bain Capital LLC is in final discussions to buy Apex Tool Group, a joint venture between Danaher Corp. (NYSE: DHR) and Cooper Industries Plc (NYSE: CBE), according to a report from Reuters.

Bain is expected to pay between $1.5 billion and $1.8 billion for the business, people familiar with the matter said, asking not to be identified because the negotiations are not public.
