“Deal leaking is down, but the stakes remain high ... In 2018 the difference in the median target takeover premium for leaked deals compared to non-leaked deals was USD 68.1 million, i.e., an average of an extra USD 68.1 million accrued to the shareholders of the targets in deals that leaked. This was the highest ‘leak premium’ difference for three years.”

- Philip Whitchelo, VP, Intralinks
