LONDON, July 5 (Reuters) - Private equity company Apollo
Global Management is in the preliminary stages of evaluating a
possible offer for British supermarket group Morrisons,
it said on Monday.
On Saturday Morrisons agreed to a takeover led by SoftBank
owned Fortress Investment Group that valued Britain's
fourth-largest grocer at 6.3 billion pounds ($8.7 billion) and
topped a rival offer from another private equity firm Clayton,
Dubilier & Rice (CD&R).
