TPG Capital withdraws bid to take over Australia's Fairfax Media

SYDNEY, July 2 (Reuters) - TPG Capital Management LP has abandoned its A$2.76 billion ($2.12 billion) bid to take over Australia’s oldest newspaper publisher, Fairfax Media Ltd, a TPG spokesman said on Sunday.

“TPG has today exited the Fairfax due diligence process and has elected not to proceed with an offer,” a spokesman said in a statement.

“TPG thanks the Board and senior management team of Fairfax for the integrity and focus they have brought to the discussions.”

A spokesperson for Fairfax was not immediately available for comment.
