Ocean Outdoor Ltd., the digital advertising firm that operates London’s Piccadilly Lights screen, says it’s in talks with investment firm Atairos about a takeover.

There’s no certainty that the talks will lead to an offer, and a further announcement will be made when appropriate, Ocean Outdoor said in a short statement. The billboard firm -- which is also the outdoor media partner for Canary Wharf Group, a center for London’s finance industry -- announced a strategic review of the business in November, saying shares were undervalued.
