Quebecor Among Potential Buyers For Wind Mobile

VimpelCom Ltd. (NasdaqGS:VIP) has put a $300-million price tag, including both its debt and equity, for the sale of Wind Mobile SA (WSE:WMO). The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) is one of the financial firms that have considered an investment in Wind Mobile, according to several sources with knowledge of the matter. A bid from Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) might not arrive soon enough for Wind Mobiles owner VimpelCom. Apart from Blackstone and Quebecor, sources say smaller financial players, including distressed debt firms, have considered taking a stake in Wind. Bloomberg News reported this week that Providence Equity Partners LLC has also looked at the asset.
