The offer at a 10.9 percent premium to Friday’s closing share price values the firm at A$1.84 billion ($1.56 billion).
Healthscope in a statement advised shareholders to take no action and added it would take several weeks to evaluate the offer.
Last week, a source said private equity firm Blackstone Group LP (BX.N) had joined TPG and Carlyle in their bid at A$5.75 a share. [ID:nSGE64N1WX] ($1=1.180 Australian Dollar) (Reporting by Narayanan Somasundaram; Editing by Ed Davies)
