Business deal leaks can 'push up the price'
A study commissioned by IntraLinks from the Cass Business School has looked at whether deals are affected adversely by press leaks.
It found in cases where a takeover gets completed after talks have already been leaked it can increase the price of the buyout.
Anna Faelten from the Mergers and Acquisitions Centre at the Cass Business School told BBC Radio 5 live that 'deliberate strategies' to leak details can 'get new buyers involved' and 'push up the price'.
