Report: Apax may bid for Reed Business Information

Published on .

London—Private equity firm Apax Partners may bid for b-to-b publishing giant Reed Business Information (RBI), The Times of London reported.

Last week, RBI’s parent company, Reed Elsevier, announced that it was putting RBI on the block.

Apax owns b-to-b media company Incisive Media. In December, in partnership with Guardian Media Group, it acquired Emap’s b-to-b division for $2 billion. In August, Incisive acquired ALM Media from U.S. Equity Partners for $630 million in cash.

A spokesman in Apax’s New York office could not be reached for comment on The Times of London report.
