C&C Group, which owns the Bulmers cider brand in the Republic of Ireland, has confirmed that it is considering floating on the Dublin and London stock exchanges this summer. The company is expected to be valued at up to Eu900m (£600m). C&C pulled plans to float two years ago because of poor market conditions. C&C sells Bulmers cider as Magners in Northern Ireland and the United States. Magners is also due to be launched in Scotland and possibly England. Its other brands include Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey, Carolans Irish Cream and Irish Mist liqueur. C&C was formerly known as Cantrell & Cochrane and was established in 1968. It was acquired by sprits giant Allied Domecq in 1998 and bought by BC Partners, co-investors and management in 1999.
