BC Partners has hired Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan to advise on the sale of Acuris, the financial news and information company that includes the Mergermarket and Debtwire brands. The private equity firm is hoping to fetch more than £1bn (€1.1bn).
Discussions on the sale are at an early stage and no final decisions have yet been made, sources said.
BC sold an approximately 30pc stake in the company to Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte in 2017. BC originally invested in the company, formerly known as Mergermarket Group, in 2014.
