Business is booming for Rohm, which was bought by ITV last year for £12.5bn, and the firm is now looking to take on the BBC.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Rohm said it was looking for a buyer, but did not give details.
The BBC is one of the most important commercial and creative partners of the BBC, with the corporation producing more than 1,000 programmes a year.
The corporation was forced to make the decision to buy out its rival Sky in 2013 when it saw its commercial value drop dramatically.
Rohm’s acquisition of the broadcaster comes as the BBC faces increasing pressure to make more money from its ad-free TV programme, which is the dominant source of revenue for the BBC and is the source of its future revenue.
The broadcaster’s advertising revenue has fallen by almost £500m since its purchase by ITV in May 2013, and it is also struggling to find ways of keeping its existing staff on board.
It said it would make a decision by the end of the year on whether to continue as an independent company, and that it had also begun discussions with some major media groups about whether to join the company.
It has said it is currently exploring options to rebrand the company in the UK and Europe, including offering it a new name and using the same advertising slogan as the one it uses on its website.
