Cinven frontrunner to buy Kurt Geiger

European investment firm Cinven has emerged as the frontrunner to buy footwear retailer Kurt Geiger in a deal worth £250m.

Cinven, which has previously invested in Fitness First and Pizza Express, has edged ahead of rival bidders including former Jimmy Choo owner Lion Capital, according to Sky News.

It is believed the deal is not yet close to being signed.

Kurt Geiger’s management team led by chief executive Neil Clifford and its backers at US private equity firm Sycamore Partners hired bankers at Goldman Sachs earlier this year to explore a sale of part or all of the business.
