Advent has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) and Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) as lead coordinators of the offering along with five other banks, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter. (bloom.bg/1Sytv4d)
Bloomberg also said Cotiviti’s IPO is likely to value the company at about $3 billion.
Cotiviti was formed when Advent’s healthcare audit firm Connolly bought iHealth Technologies in 2014.
Advent, Goldman and JPMorgan declined to comment.
