Starwood, Apollo bid for $4 billion GE air-finance unit: Bloomberg

(Reuters) - Starwood Capital Group and Apollo Global Management (APO.N) have submitted offers to buy an aircraft-financing business owned by General Electric Co (GE.N) that could be valued at about $4 billion, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

GE is working with advisers as it explores a possible sale of PK AirFinance, a unit of the company's broader aircraft-leasing business known as GECAS, and has received interest from potential suitors, some of which have advanced into the next round of bidding, according to the report.
