May 8 (Reuters) - Canada's NorthWest Healthcare Properties REIT on Tuesday said it acquired rights to a 10 percent stake in Australian hospital operator Healthscope Ltd at A$2.39 per Healthscope share.
This values the stake at about A$416 million ($313.04 million). The rights to the stake were obtained through a derivative offered by Deutsche Bank AG, the company said in a statement.
Last month, private equity firm BGH Capital and its consortium partners offered to buy out Healthscope for $3.1 billion.
