BREAKFAST DEALS: Frequent buyers

A group of powerful Qantas shareholders may contain Gerry Harvey and Katie Page, while Billabong could be wooing private equity – again.

The group of influential investors prodding at Qantas Airways, which reportedly includes Gerry Harvey and Katie Page, are sitting on a small stake in the airline. Expect the PR battle to go up a notch. Meanwhile, Billabong International USA president Paul Naude is thought to be chatting to a few private equity firms. How they’ll be different from the last ones to pass on Billabong remains to be seen. Also, Telstra’s purchase of South Australian ISP Adam Internet is getting some objections, MYOB is going for a $125 million listed note and Horizon Oil’s PNG assets have grabbed a solid valuation.
