Shire's next deal could be "transformational" - part 4

This latest global stockmarket rout seems to have had little impact on the booming M&A market, with Betfair announcing a £5 billion merger with Paddy Power this morning and Schlumberger striking a deal to purchase Cameron International in the US for $14.8 billion.

Those deals come after RSA agreed a £5.6 billion sale to Switzerland's Zurich earlier this week.

But one deal that has gone very quiet is Shire's $30 billion hostile pursuit of US-based Baxalta, which has seen its share price crater since the wider stockmarket tumble began last week.

I wonder what's happening with that situation? I mean, is Shire now secretly negotiating an agreed deal with Baxalta's board (the last thing I read the directors wanted $5 billion more from the FTSE 100 company) or has Shire moved on (or back) to another target?

UPDATE: Maybe I spoke too soon! Monsanto just gave up its $47 billion pursuit of Swiss seeds company Syngenta...

A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!!

Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children.
