Quintiles' bankrollers eye another $1B in second offering

Quintiles ($Q) founder Dennis Gillings and a trio of private equity backers hauled in more than $400 million when the company first went public last year, and now they're looking to reap nearly $1 billion more in a secondary public offering. Along with Bain Capital, TPG Capital and 3i, Gillings and associates are offering another 15 million shares in a follow-on offering, giving underwriters the option of buying 2.25 million more. Based on Quintiles' average stock price on Feb. 20, the offering would top out at $939.4 million, the CRO said in a regulatory filing. The company won't see any proceeds from the sale, which will benefit only the shareholders. Filing
