Lagardere in Talks to Sell International Magazines

Lagardere SCA, France’s biggest publisher, is in informal talks that could lead to the sale of its international magazine business, whose titles include “Car and Driver” and the foreign editions of “Elle.”

The company wants to focus on regions where it has its most-significant presence, a spokeswoman for the magazines unit, Lagardere Active, said. The discussions are aimed at finding possible partnerships and may lead to joint ventures rather than an outright sale, she said.
