SEOUL (Reuters) - Carlyle Group and Bain Capital are among four shortlisted bidders for a stake in South Korean water purifier rental firm Woongjin Coway Co Ltd (021240.KS), the Korea Economic Daily reported on Tuesday.
Woongjin Group said in June it is selling a 25.08% stake in Woongjin Coway, just three months after the group regained control of the unit for 1.89 billion won ($1.56 million).
The four bidders include South Korea’s SK Networks (001740.KS) and a local consortium of China’s Haier (1169.HK), the report said. Woongjin Coway plans to receive binding bids in September, the report said.
Woongjin was not immediately available for comment.
