The Financial Timesreports that an agreement has been reached for Barclays to buy parts of Lehman Brothers, though certain details like which parts* and for how much remain unclear. Contingent liabilities related to the ego of Institutional Investor's #1 Brokerage and Asset Manager of 2006, Dick Fuld, were hopefully offset by the $1 billion+ tied up in the Times Square Headquarters building. Barclays is totally screwed otherwise. Sources tell Dealbreaker Coffee Cart Man was thrown in last minute to sweeten things for the Brits.
*Though most certainly US broker-dealer operations.
