LONDON, Feb 18 (Reuters) - Credit information firm Experian EXPN.L is reviewing options for its Pricegrabber shopping comparison Web site, it said on Monday, after a weekend report that it had put the unit up for sale.
“Experian is undertaking a review of PriceGrabber and its fit within the Experian portfolio,” the group said in a statement. “This review is at an early stage and Experian will make a further announcement when appropriate.”
The Sunday Times reported Experian, which said last month it was reviewing its portfolio of businesses, could sell Pricegrabber less than three years after paying almost $500 million for it.
