Management is currently exploring options for the unit, which made 1.3 billion euros ($1.5 billion) in sales in 2016 and is facing stiff competition from Asia, the paper said, adding that included a potential disposal.

No advisers have been mandated at this stage, the paper said.

A spokeswoman for Bosch said the company would not comment on market speculation.
