The broadcaster reports it is likely to be announced listings service Hotcourses is to be sold for between £30 million and £35 million this week.
It says documents filed to Companies House show Hunt owns around 48% of the business he helped set up with Mike Elms in 1996, and the latest register of MPs’ interests says only that he holds more than 15% of the business.
Sky New reports a sale - which it said was being signed on Sunday night - has been lined up with an Australasian company with operations in the education sector.
The deal comes amid an ongoing winter ‘crisis’ in the NHS with hospitals facing a shortage of beds and the Red Cross being called in to assist over-crowded emergency departments.
Two years ago, it was reported Hunt enjoyed a £960,000 windfall from dividends paid out from the company.
It claims to have the world’s largest database of courses - from starting a business and baking to learning a foreign language and university courses - and has offices around the world.
In 2014, private equity group Inflexion was reported to have been interested in buying Hotcourses, which would have netted Hunt £17million, but the deal fell through.
