The Deal: Bain, TPG Get Windfall With Quintiles IPO

The firms' remaining stake in Quintiles is valued at $2.5 billion, without considering the underwriters' option. With the option, the value of the firms' collective stake is about $2 billion.

The private equity firms acquired the company in a $3 billion-plus deal in 2008.

Quintiles generated $4.8 billion of revenue in 2012, 12% higher than in the previous year, and conducted business in about 100 countries, filings show. Net income last year fell 27% to $176.6 million.
