SO, what’s worth fighting over
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - Citigroup said late on Saturday that a New York court issued an order extending its agreement under which it has exclusive rights to negotiate a purchase of Wachovia Corp. A deal between Wachovia and Citi was unveiled on Monday. But late on Thursday, Wachovia agreed to be acquired by Wells Fargo. Responding on Friday to the Wachovia-Wells tie-up proposal, Citigroup claimed that it had exclusive rights and that Wachovia was not permitted to talk to anyone else.
