Carlyle Says No IPO In The Works

Sep 22 2009 | 11:13am ET

Investors desperate to own some shares of the Carlyle Group are going to have to cool their heels. Despite a report last week in the Financial Times to the contrary, the private equity giant says it’s not going public any time soon.

“Carlyle has no plans to go public, and if we ever do go public, it will be a long way off,” Carlyle spokesman Christopher Ullman said.

The FT had reported that Carlyle was mulling an IPO in as little as six months.
