Dutch media giant eyeing CMP

Published on .

NEW YORK-VNU NV, the Netherlands' third-largest publisher, will take a look at CMP Media, Manhasset, N.Y., but doesn't have a firm plan to bid for the computer magazine publisher. CMP, whose titles include Computer Reseller News, hired Lazard Freres & Co. last month to explore options, including a sale or merger. The British weekly Press Gazette, which reported the VNU bid, also said that Reed Elsevier, American Online and IDG Books Worldwide are possible bidders. VNU already publishes computer industry magazines, but only in Europe. (From Crain's New York Business
