News In Brief

Bonhams reported to be up for sale

Auction house Bonhams is reported to be in talks with investment bank and advisory firm NM Rothschild on the potential sale of the 225-year-old firm.

Bonhams is controlled by chairman Robert Brooks. He acquired the firm in 2000. Discussions about a potential sale took place four years ago but a deal did not materialise.

According to The Sunday Times, Poly Culture, China’s largest auctioneering group, had expressed an interest in the firm. The newspaper reported that several private equity firms, including Bain Capital, CVC Capital and Bridgepoint, had also previously looked at the company.

Bonhams declined to comment on whether Rothschild had been appointed. Rothschild made no comment.
