Who would be the people "familiar with the matter" who leaked this to Reuters?

Reuters must have did some digging to confirm it was actually someone from CVC Capital / Kronospan.  They do have some journalistic requirements you would think.

Why would CVC Capital / Kronospan leak it before actually submitting the joint interest proposal to WFG?  What does this gain them?

Maybe they're not really interested in acquiring WFG, but they're selling their stock with the run-up in price.  That would seem quite dubious for a reputable private equity firm / establied European manufactuer though?

I don't get their strategy???
