Wiggle, which is owned by private equity firm Bridgepoint, is understood to be looking at the business’ future options, according to the Telegraph.
Is it not the first time Wiggle as eyed an IPO, in 2011 it was looking at a floatation but its former owners Isis chose to sell the business to Bridgepoint instead in a deal valuing the business at £180m – 12 to 13 times the company’s earnings at the time.
