New York-based Paulson & Co., founded and run by John Paulson, will purchase Steinway Musical for $40 per share, with the total transaction valued at approximately $512 million. Upon the deal’s completion, Steinway will become a privately-held company.

The statement also said that Steinway has 25 days to accept an outside offer.

The transaction is expected to close in late September.            

With additional offices in London and Hong Kong, Paulson & Co. manages approximately $18 billion in assets.
