Carlyle mulls private equity bid for Reed Business Info

Another private equity group has been linked to the sale of Reed Business Information, according to the Times’ Mediapolis column.

Carlyle, whose media investments in the past have included taking a 40 per cent stake in French daily newspaper Le Figaro, is reported to be considering a bid.

Confusingly, the Mediapolis piece talks of a “pending auction” – although Reed Elsevier has yet to announce exactly by what means it plans on offloading RBI.
