Nov 2 (Reuters) - KKR & Co Inc (KKR.N) said on Tuesday its third quarter distributable earnings more than doubled to $925.1 million, driven by strong growth in management fees and profit from asset sales in its private equity business.

KKR and other private equity firms have benefited from a flurry of mergers and acquisitions as the global economy recovers from the pandemic. Its peers Blackstone Inc (BX.N) and Carlyle Group Inc (CG.O) reported record earnings last month due to strong asset sales. read more

KKR said its after-tax distributable earnings per share doubled to $1.05, exceeding the average Wall Street analyst forecast of 93 cents, according to Refinitiv.

During the quarter, KKR said it generated $448 million as income from asset sales such as the divestment of its stake in supplement maker The Bountiful Company to the Swiss food giant Nestle SA (NESN.S) in a $5.75 billion deal.

KKR said it invested $24 billion to buy new assets, including a majority stake Indian cosmetics firm Vini Cosmetics for $625 million and the acquisition of several apartment buildings such as The District at Scottsdale in Arizona.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), KKR said its net income rose 7% to $1.1 billion, largely due to revenue from its insurance subsidiary, Global Atlantic.

May 17 (Reuters) - U.S. private-equity firm KKR (KKR.N) has agreed to buy London-listed power generation company ContourGlobal (GLO.L) for 1.75 billion pounds ($2.16 billion) in an effort to expand its presence in renewable energy.

Under the deal announced on Tuesday, KKR will pay 263.6 pence for each share of ContourGlobal. That represents a 36% premium to the company's closing price on Monday.

ContourGlobal, which operates 138 thermal and renewable power plants across Europe, Latin America, North America and Africa, will recommend that its shareholders accept the offer, KKR said.

The company will add to KKR's infrastructure investments that span industries such as renewables, utilities, transportation, water and communications.
