Bonnier ponders Orkla bid

Sweden's Bonnier media group said it is looking into the possibilities of acquiring the media operations of Norway's Orkla ASA which have been put up for sale, the newspaper Dagens Industri reported.

“We will do an evaluation of the information from Orkla. What this will result in is too early to say today. This is naturally not something we will reject out of hand and we will of course look into it,” Bonnier chief executive Bengt Braun said.

An unnamed source within the Swedish group told the newspaper that Bonnier would be interested “at the right price”.
