BBC News has reported that The London Stock Exchange (LSE) has confirmed that it is 'in discussions with various other parties.'
The announcement follows recent rumours that have linked the exchange with Nasdaq, the New York-based technology market and Germany's Deutsche Boerse.
The LSE was forced to make a statement following the recent run-up in its share price.
Earlier plans to merge with Deutsche Boerse collapsed after the LSE was forced to defend itself from a hostile bid from Sweden's OM Group.
