    Cerberus is reportedly in negotiations to join Virtu's attempt to acquire brokerage Knight Capital (KCG) in a deal valued at $1.5-1.6B including debt. Virtu is also in talks with Silver Lake, Credit Suisse (CS) and other banks about financing for the bid. Meanwhile, Jefferies Group (JEF) will provide $950M to help fund Getco's rival offer for Knight in a deal worth $1.4-1.8B including debt.

    Virtu is reportedly making a $3/share all-cash bid for Knight Capital, according to Charlie Gasparino. On the surface, it's well less than than Getco's $3.50 bid, but Getco's deal is more a merger with part of the value being stock in the combined company - and who knows what that will be worth. KCG +11.5% to $3.31.

    High-speed trading firm Virtu Financial has reportedly taken the lead against rival Getco in the race to acquire Knight Capital (KCG). Any deal is expected to value the brokerage firm at over $1B, well above its market cap of 540.2M. Virtu is preparing an all-cash offer that would be a prelude to an IPO, while Getco's bid would comprise cash and shares as part of a reverse merger that would give the company a public listing.

    Knight Capital (KCG) has reportedly been approached by high-speed trading firms Getco and Virtu Financial about selling them its market-making operations. The business is Knight's largest and most profitable, but suffered a massive loss in August when a technical problem flooded the market with mistaken orders.

    Knight Capital (KCG -0.4%) gyrated early but has settled near breakeven after posting a Q3 loss. The “Aug. 1, 2012 technology issue” - the software glitch that caused dozens of stocks to fluctuate wildly - turned out to cost $461M vs. previously reported $440M. KCG has essentially ceded control over its operations to an investor group, but CEO Tom Joyce tried to reassure that clients have not fled.
