Corrections and Amplifications

This item was corrected at 08:32 GMT. The original misstated the market values of both Reed Elsevier and Centrica in the final paragraph. Reed Elsevier's combined market capitalization is 19 billion pounds ($32 billion), not GBP10.55 billion, which only reflects the PLC. Centrica's market capitalization is GBP17.4 billion, not GBP1.74 billion.
