FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Finland’s Kone <KNEBV.HE> is considering teaming up with a partner to help pull off a bid for Thyssenkrupp’s <TKAG.DE> elevator business, three people familiar with the matter said.

Kone, which analysts say would be a good strategic fit for Thyssenkrupp’s elevator division, could mitigate antitrust risks by selling assets in a potential deal to a partner in a consortium, one of the people said.

Kone declined to comment.
