Private Equity Predators Circle Experian

07 February 2006

   LONDON - Plans by UK retail and direct selling giant GUS to spin-off its data management and consumer credit rating unit Experian have attracted the interest of two US private equity groups - Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Hellman & Friedman.
    The demerger, likely to take place this year, could see the duo making a joint £6 billion ($10.6bn; €8.8bn) bid for Experian.
