Barclays to buy Lehman Brothers assets (UPDATED)

No mention of purchase price on the $639 billion of assets (or portion thereof), probably because they need court approval first.

UPDATE: Forbes says the price is around $1.75 billion, and includes the investment banking and capital markets operations, as well as the Lehman headquarters property. In addition (I assume) Barclays will take on trading assets valued at $72 billion, and related liabilities of $68 million.
