Advent International and Nordic Capita may also make bids for Stokke before the October 21 deadline, said Bloomberg, citing five people with knowledge of the situation.
The company would prefer to be taken over by a private equity firm with experience of growing businesses internationally, said one of the sources.
Stokke has hired Goldman Sachs to advise on strategic options and is looking to sell for around €400m, said the people.
BC Partners and Bain Capital have reportedly made first round bids for the mortar division of chemicals and materials group Materis.
