Deloitte’s Vaughan Strawbridge is expected to receive four serious non-binding indicative bids for Virgin Australia on 15 May. They are tipped to include a consortium that is headed by AustralianSuper and private equity firm BGH. Singapore’s Temasek will not be a member of the consortium, although it would gain indirect exposure to Virgin via its investment in BGH’s $2.5bn equity fund. Queensland government-owned QIC has ruled out making an indicative bid on 15 May, although it might join a consortium in the second round of the bidding process.
