Bain bought Atento from Spain’s Telefonica in 2012 for about €1bn, with the phone company selling off the division to cut its debt.

European buyout house Permira was also thought to be in contact with Telefonica about the Atento unit.

Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and Itau are acting as lead underwriters for the share offering, which will see the business list on the New York Stock Exchange.
