Latest reports suggest Toys R Us is to be sold in its entirety to a consortium of private equity firms for $5.7bn (£3bn). The consortium comprises Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), Bain Capital and Vornado Realty Trust with each business owning an equal stake.

The price being paid is 10% above Toys R Us' $5.2bn market value. KKR was apparently brought into the consortium with Bain and Vornado when it became apparent that Toys R Us was putting its entire business up for sale, including Babies R Us.
