Bloomberg reported that NewStar Financial Inc., the business lender backed by private-equity firms Corsair Capital LLC and Capital Z Partners Management LLC, is exploring a sale. This is according to people with knowledge of the matter.

According to the report, NewStar is working with Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN) to solicit offers, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the process is confidential. Logical buyers include Jacksonville, Florida-based EverBank Financial Corp. (EVER), Miami Lakes, Florida-based BankUnited Inc. (BKU), and Wayzata, Minnesota-based TCF Financial Corp. (TCB), he said.

The Bloomberg report says Robert Brown, a spokesman for NewStar, declined to comment, as did Credit Suisse spokesman Jack Grone and Robert Siegfried at Corsair.
