Re: Reed Elsevier rumor

The London Evening Standard reports on three rumours that are 
doing the rounds:

"Reed Elsevier was still one of the hottest topics on the Square 
Mile grapevine - finding itself the subject of three rumours. The 
New Scientist and Estates Gazette publisher was variously 
muttered to be at the end of a bid from Wolters Kluwer, mulling 
an offer itself for its Dutch rival or - a bit more mundanely - 
weighing up a disposal.

"Its shares perked up... Reed is larger than Wolters - hence the 
flipping round of the yarn to make the rumoured prey the predator 
- and the two have previously held merger talks."
