billion and $25 billion. The structures that we're
3
being talked about in terms of the potential rescue
4
of Lehman posed significant difficulties, and we
5
were aware that Lehman was talking to at least two
6
potential acquirers, Bank of America and Barclays.
7
Mid-morning on Saturday, I became very
8
concerned that the combination of the potential
9
loss in the commercial mortgage portfolio, and the
10
complications of putting any type of rescue
11
together without any form of government assistance
12
made it likely that Lehman would not, in fact, be
13
rescued; that it would fail. And I was very
14
concerned about the impact a Lehman failure would
15
have on the market generally upon all the financial
16
institutions, but, in particular, on Merrill Lynch.
17
Q. That would be a good place just to ask
18
you to focus a little more on what occurred on
19
Saturday morning that heightened your concern then
20
that led you to think that Lehman might fail.
21
A. It was a combination of the fact that
22
the size of the loss was of a magnitude that it was
23
going to be difficult to put together a rescue
24
package, and the structures that could possibly do
25
that were very difficult to put together with that
