France Telecom to sell Orange Suisse - PE interest

According to Bloomberg, the following groups have shown interest in the sale:

EQT Partners
Providence Equity
Xavier Niel/ Goldman Sachs
Liberty Global

left the process:
Bain Capital
Carlyle Group

The 800 lb gorilla is CVC who owns rival Sunrise. Although a merger was earlier attempted and refused by Swiss authorities, it seems another effort might be in the works.
