Kinder Morgan preparing for IPO – Bloomberg

NEW YORK, July 16 (BestGrowthStock) – Kinder Morgan Inc, the
Houston-based pipeline company taken private in a $22 billion
leveraged buyout three years ago, is preparing for an initial
public offering, Bloomberg said, citing three sources familiar
with the matter.

Kinder Morgan, backed by Carlyle Group [CYL.UL] and Goldman
Sachs Group Inc’s (GS.N: ) buyout fund, is hiring banks for the
share sale, the sources said, according to the report.

The 2007 leveraged buyout of Kinder Morgan was the sixth
largest on record, the report said.

Officials of the pipeline company, and from Carlyle and
Goldman Sachs, could not immediately be reached by Reuters for
comment.
