Ares Capital Management has upped the ante in its negotiations with AMP Limited signalling its interest in acquiring 100% of the AMP Capital private markets business.

AMP Limited has announced that while the exclusivity period around its negotiations with Ares Capital Management over the AMP Capital private markets business has concluded, work is continuing between the two companies.

In an announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), it said the 30-day exclusivity period in its Heads of Agreement with Ares had concluded.

“AMP and Ares continue to work towards a potential transaction and Ares has expressed interest in acquiring 100% of the private markets businesses,” it said.

“There is no certainty that a transaction will proceed, or the terms, size or structure on which it would proceed. Any transaction would remain subject to approval of AMP shareholders."
