Posted 12/10/13

PROVIDENCE – Providence Equity Partners is set to launch the process for a $600 million sale of Volia Ltd., a Ukrainain cable company, according to a Dec. 2 report on the Dow Jones LBO Wire.

Volia, the Urkaine’s largest provider of cable broadband, was acquired by Providence Equity Partners for $200 million in 2007, with U.S. buyout fund SigmaBleyzer taking a minority stake, according to the report.

Volia is expected to be attractive to bidders because of strong interest in the cable and broadband sector.
