FRANKFURT, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Dutch packaging maker Schoeller Allibert is exploring a sale as its owners seek an exit after reshaping the company, adding to a string of deals in the sector, three people close to the matter said.
Majority owner JP Morgan as well as co-investor Schoeller, a German family, have asked Citi to find a buyer for the maker of plastic boxes, which may be valued at about 400-500 million euros ($426-$532 million), the people said.
JP Morgan and OEP declined to comment, while Citi and the Schoeller family were not available for comment.
