The IPO could raise more than $1 billion, putting the company’s value at as much as $20 billion, including debt.
Univision’s ownership group, which includes billionaire Haim Saban, has been looking for an exit since it bought the company in 2007 for $13.7 billion. That deal loaded the company with a heavy debt, which is currently calculated at $9 billion.

Grupo Televisa owns an stake in Univision, after investing $1.2 billion in 2010.
Last month, Univision’s CFO Andrew Hobson resigned just days after announcing a possible IPO.
