The companies did not name the sources that did not want to be named.

The interest arose after Thoma Bravo, a tech-focused private equity firm, contacted the social media platform last week to explore a takeover that would challenge Elon Musk’s $43 billion bid.

Apollo Global Management Inc is considering opportunities to fund deals and is open to working with Musk or other bidders, the sources said. His involvement would be through its debt investment platform rather than its private equity business, the sources added.

Apollo and Twitter declined to comment.

Twitter on Friday rolled out a “poison pill” to limit Musk’s ability to increase his stake in the social media platform.
