Bain Capital is close to acquiring Guidehouse, a consulting firm that advises government organisations and businesses, in a deal valuing it at $5.3 billion including debt, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

An agreement could be announced as soon as Monday, the report said, citing people familiar with the situation.

Bain Capital declined to comment when contacted by Reuters, while Guidehouse did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Private equity firm Veritas Capital acquired the US public sector business of accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2018 and rebranded it as Guidehouse.
