Com Hem looks to IPO?

January 24, 2014

Com Hem backer BC Partners is looking towards an IPO for the operator, according to reports. Discussions between Com Hem and the London private-equity firm are said to be at an early stage, with BC yet to appoint advisers to manage a possible sale.

Com Hem named Andrew Barron, former CEO of Virgin Media, as executive chairman in December 2013 with a remit to find a replacement for CEO Tomas Franzen. A new CEO is expected to be in place before a final decision on an IPO is made.
