It’s not just BC Partners who are in negotiations to purchase shares in Inter, according to the Financial Times, but also BQT and Arctos Sports Partners.
The Nerazzurri’s owners Suning effectively confirmed this week they are in talks to sell part of the club, and haven’t ruled out the possibility of selling a majority share.
British private equity firm BC Partners are already said to be doing due diligence on the club’s accounts, but they might not be the only candidates.
News agency Reuters also stated today that “BC Partners is in talks to buy into Italian soccer team Inter Milan, four sources familiar with the matter said, as top investor Suning looks for resources to inject into the loss-making Serie A club.”
According to the Financial Times newspaper, other companies looking at potential investment in Inter include BQT and Arctos Sports Partners.
The latter would be involved via a Swedish equity firm, EQT.
