Lloyd’s List publisher Informa talking to Springer

Lloyd’s List publisher Informa has begun talks about taking over German rival Springer Science and Business Media. The idea was sparked by UK private equity groups Candover and Cinven trying to sell a stake of as much as 49 per cent in the German group for about €400m, says the Financial Times.

Then two groups have been the subject of merger speculation for several years with Informa, as one of the world’s largest organisers of conferences, being an ideal fit with Springer.
