Carlyle Group (CG) is reportedly the front running bidder for Getty Images, the photo archive being sold by private-equity firm Hellman & Friedman LLC. CVC Capital Partners, which is also bidding, has so far declined to top Carlyle’s offer. Estimates place Getty selling at between $3.3B -$3.4B, far below the $4B price tag originally sought.
