Credit Suisse Also Mentions Advance Auto Parts (AAP) and Guitar Center (GTRC) as LBO Targets

In addition to discussing Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS) as a possible LBO target, Credit Suisse also mentions Guitar Center Inc. (Nasdaq: GTRC) and Advance Auto Parts Inc. (NYSE: AAP) as possible targets.

The firm said in the past Guitar Center said it would be easier to manage the business as a private company and the company has held discussions with large shareholder Sageview Capital, which is run by two ex-stars at private equity giant KKR.

The firm said Advance Auto Parts makes the most sense in the do-it-yourself auto segment.
