Owner of Getty Images considering sale, IPO, FT reports

Hellman & Friedman, the private-equity fund owner of Getty Images, is working with Goldman Sachs (GS) and JP Morgan (JPM) to examine a possible sale or IPO of the business which was taken private four years ago, the Financial Times reports. Five people familiar with the plans say a sale or public offering could value the business at up to $4B. Getty may draw takeover interest from private equity funds, potentially KKR (KKR), one person says.
