WPP’s data management and research business for sale?

WPP is reported to be in discussions about shedding its Achilles heel – the collection of data management and research businesses that were consolidated under the Kantar Consulting banner last January.

WPP would not comment on rumours that the group was talking to private equity investor CVC Capital Partners, but issued a statement saying “it is too early to speculate about specific asset sales”.
