PARIS (Reuters) - France’s Elior Group said on Wednesday it has entered into exclusive discussions with European private equity firm PAI Partners about a potential sale of its concession catering business.

The announcement comes after Reuters reported PAI Partners had emerged as the frontrunner in an auction for the business, edging out U.S. investment firm Lone Star and Swiss airline caterer Gategroup, part of Chinese conglomerate HNA Group.
