Alzette has reportedly agreed to buy 16.65% of Hispania from Soros-backed funds of QP Capital Holdings and QPB Holdings in a deal worth €17.54 per share, totaling €315.4mn.

However, it will now look to wholly acquire Hispania, a company that has two third of its operations in the hospitality industry, for in a deal totaling €1.9bn that would see Blackstone paying this same price per share.

The offer follows a number of Spanish investments from Blackstone, including its acquisition of HI Partners in October 2017 and its purchase of a 51% stake in Banco Popular’s €30bn real estate portfolio.
