Shares in the LSE soared 17% after it said it was in "detailed discussions" with the German company about a "merger of equals".
Both companies said all their key businesses would continue to operate under their current brand names.
It is the third time the LSE and Deutsche Boerse have attempted to merge, first in 2000 then in 2004-5.
Shares in Deutsche Boerse were up 7%.

London Stock Exchange in merger talks with Deutsche Boerse

Not sure if this is the right forum but let's see.

So, as the EU shenanigans ramp up (or down) or wherever, it seems the LSE is in talks about a merger with our German cousins. Now, call me skeptical, but could this just be another nail in the "trying to keep us in" the EU coffin? I'm probably way off here but all my spidey senses are tinglin'

Should I just take off the tin foil hat?

Tin foil amplifies intercranial remote access systems, rather than dulling them, so yes, take it off. Do it now.

In all seriousness though, good spot. The timing of this is certainly suggestive, if not entirely shocking.

This merger has been going on for years, so the current kerfuffle with the EU referendum is just a coincidence.
