FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Finland’s Kone (HE:) is considering teaming up with a partner to help pull off a bid for Thyssenkrupp’s (DE:) elevator business, three people familiar with the matter said.
Kone, which analysts say would be a good strategic fit for Thyssenkrupp’s elevator division, could mitigate antitrust risks by selling assets in a potential deal to a partner in a consortium, one of the people said.
Kone declined to comment.
