BERLIN (Reuters) – Private equity funds Advent, Apollo <APO.N>, CVC, Carlyle <CG.O>, KKR <KKR.N> and probably also EQT are among the parties interested in Thyssenkrupp’s <TKAG.DE> elevators division, Germany’s Manager Magazin reported on Thursday.

The magazine, which did not name its sources, said informal talks were already underway.

Thyssenkrupp boss Guido Kerkhoff has agreed to consider a sale of its prized elevators business to help turn around the stricken conglomerate.
