Silver Lake May Join Fidelity National Consortium

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Private equity firm Silver Lake is considering joining the consortium bidding for Fidelity National Information Services Inc (FIS.N), two sources familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

The current consortium in talks to buy the company, which provides payment processing and other banking services, is made up of Blackstone Group (BX.N), Thomas H. Lee Partners and TPG Capital [TPG.UL], sources previously told Reuters.

A deal for Fidelity could be worth around $15 billion if a buyout is agreed, a source familiar with the situation said on Tuesday. (Reporting by Megan Davies; Editing by Gary Hill)
