Há vida para além das falências


Barclays Plc, the U.K.’s third- biggest bank, will acquire the North American investment-banking business of bankrupt Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. for $1.75 billion, two days after abandoning plans to buy the entire firm.

The London-based bank is paying $250 million in cash for the Lehman businesses and $1.5 billion for the securities firm’s New York headquarters and two data centers, it said in a statement on its Web site today. The operations employ about 10,000 people, almost two-fifths of Lehman’s total.

Barclays President Robert Diamond seized on what he called a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to buy a business that ranks seventh in advising on U.S. mergers.

Quanto à AIG e também via Bloomberg, haveria seguradoras alemãs interessadas em adquirir parte dos seus negócios.
