Schroders looking for photo finish

But the outcome of negotiations is “still open”.

Scroder Ventures is in “intensive negotiations” with Agfa Gevaert for the Belgian company’s photo business, according to Agfa.

If negotiations are successful, Schroders will buy Agfa’s film, finishing, laboratory equipment and consumer digital imaging departments, said Agfa.

Scroders made no comment. The UK-based private equity firm already has one photographic investment, in Ferrania.
