Riverdeep Rumor and Reed Elsevier "Buy"

A curious note from Usman Ghazi of Dresdner Kleinwort who, in the process of recommeding Reed Elsevier as a buy - with a target price of 780p - takes note of rumors suggesting Riverdeep risk "either not securing the bank funding required to finalize the [Harcourt] transaction or going bankrupt in the intervening period, leaving the deal unfinished." He dismisses these rumours and I can't find any other suggestion of these issues so how much of a concern are they?
