Black Knight Financial Services is seeking a buyer for PCLender, one of its three loan origination systems, and the founder of the business is said to be among the potential bidders.

Lender Processing Services, Black Knight's predecessor, acquired PCLender for $9.8 million in March 2011. LPS executives began exploring the idea of selling PCLender last summer, while the company's own acquisition by Fidelity National Financial was still pending. Fidelity closed that deal in January, and the previously slow-moving process of shopping PCLender to prospective buyers has recently picked up, sources say.
