U.S. electronics retailer RadioShack Corp
Investment bankers have already begun pitching their private equity clients about a leveraged buyout of RadioShack, informing them of the retailer's willingness to sell, the newspaper said.
Another option for RadioShack would be a merger with Best Buy Co Inc
A RadioShack spokesman declined to comment to the Post.
It is still early in the process and any sale efforts would not begin for weeks or even months, a source told the paper.
RadioShack shares have risen in the past based on takeover speculation.
RadioShack shares have nearly tripled over the last year as it has repositioned itself as a hub for mobile phones and related services.
RadioShack could not be immediately reached for comment by Reuters outside regular U.S. business hours.
