Controlling shareholder, the private equity firm KKR, has hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch and UBS to review options which could include a flotation on the Paris stock market in 2016, they said.

"The word is out that they will get this business sold next year," said one person close to the matter.

KKR, SMCP, BoA Merrill Lynch and UBS declined to comment.
