Reed Elsevier: Buy our mags, we'll lend you the cash


Reed Elsevier is offering a $330m high-interest loan to help potential bidders find the cash for its up-for-sale B2B publishing division, Reed Business Information.

According to the FT, the loan – at a rate of around 16 per cent – has been offered to around two dozen private equity firms who have expressed an interest in RBI.

The paper says around half a dozen bids are expected. First-round bids are due in August.
